In this series, we jump into creating textures in ZBrush using polypainting and Fibermesh in ZBrush. We'll use Fibermesh to create hair element individually and then we'll use the groom brushes to add more natural variations to the fibres or hairs we create. Finally, we'll use polypainting to colour or tint the hair to something more naturalistic and complimentary to the character. A final render to see how it all turns out and then looking at the render pass in Photoshop will complete our whirlwind introduction to Fibermesh!
