What is the best way to make fur shells in Blender? I can't seem the find any tutorials or information on this. Everything I turn up involves baking everything from the fur mesh to a single texture and mesh, nothing really covering shells.Pic related is my attempt at baking a hair particle system converted to a mesh then baked to 5 textured shells only baking the direct diffuse light. So far after messing with the bakers in blender such as AO and Normal, this seems to yield the best results, but I am sure better can be done.

I love how everyone on this board can inflate their egos by shitting on Hollywood CG and anyone doing stylized art, but when something requiring an iota of knowledge comes around, you fucks are nowhere to be found.
>>667763Maybe because using shells in 2019 is fucking retarded? We can render proper strands in real-time now.
>>667700Okay first off, why? second, what's the intent of this?
>>667764...and the FPS is effectively halved on a mid-range gamer card. No, thanks
>>667766Fucking this.>>667764What about games on phones with fuzzy characters or objects? Then what genius?
>>667768>What about games on phones with fuzzy characters or objects? Then what genius?Then you stop being a faggot and go google breakdowns from fucking 2004. I believe there is one from Shadow of the Colossus.
>>667771The shell method is way older. So much older that I wrote an article for a magazine in the 90s about it.
>>667763Because they don't actually do 3D, they just shit on other people because their life has no joy.>B... Bu... But-but i do 3D I'm not retarded!!show your work>I can't because all my work is for my job and I can't show that.why should I believe you>......
>>667763The more knowledgeable a person is, the lesser is the chance that he/she is willing to spend time helping you with your primitive problems. Even more so, when your problem could be easily fixed by A FUCKING GOOGLE-SEARCH.
>>668878I feel like it's reasonable to assume that people come here to ask questions because google has failed them
>>667768>What about games on phones with fuzzy characters or objects? Then what genius?have you tried mobile fur shaders
>>667765Yeah, I mean what in the world would someone do with fur? What kind of model need fur? What kind of activities would a fur model have?
