Creating hair can be a tedious and time consuming process till you see the end result. In this course, you will be taught a generalized pipeline for hair evolved from the years of experience working on AAA titles like Control, Ghost of Tsushima, Injustice 2, The Walking Dead, Layers of fear 2 to name a few. Right from collecting references to the end presentation, you will be guided step by step that will prepare you to confidently make your very own high quality hair for personal or professional practices.
You will be taken through the full process of planning your work, creating hairs in Xgen, baking the hairs into textures, creating a hair asset, and finally putting it into Unreal Engine. The class will contain both practical workflows and theoretical mindsets to help you master the skills necessary for real-time hair creation.
Nakshatra a.k.a. Naky, started as freelance artist making collectibles when he was 17. Soon after, he got his first on site job at the age of 19 at Little Red Zombies where he became Character Artist for games. Today after industry experience of over 6 years he has worked on almost every title at LRZ like Sniper 3, Strange Brigade, Overkill's The Walking Dead, CONTROL, Ghost of Tsushima etc. During his professional career he also developed a taste for creating real time hair. Today after going through several iterations, he has come up with a pipeline that yields high quality and optimal real time hair results. This has been noticed by several AAA clients among the game industry and he is working with handful of them. Using mixture of traditional and modern techniques has benefited the overall department of real time alpha card hairs. He is also working on pushing hair creation for Next-generation games!
Previously I struggled terribly when I was supposed to make a hair asset. Now I confidently sculpt and lay haircards implementing gained knowledge in work environment.
Hair creation has been a breeze with Naky’s teachings, it makes sense, it’s easier to approach and I’m more eager to find new methods on a task that I used to avoid before this course.
He simplify a very hard and complicated subject (Hair for games) and makes it easy to understand and to apply, Amazing job by the instructor!
