Dreadlocks With Xgen.

Dreadlocks represent a challenge when creating hairstyles in 3D. It’s kind of like a braid, but not quite as uniform. In Maya, it’s easy to set up the guide hairs, and alter the clump, offset and curl effect attributes. Karimi’s character is a representation of Willow Smith and her complex -looking hairstyle. His end result looks fantastic.
