Create a furry 3D character from scratch

Creating a fur character can be easy, but if you want to make a really appealing piece of furry 3D art you will have to pay attention to detail and keep it organised.

I will show you the different steps I went through to create this little furry creature. This tutorial will mainly focus on my workflow for fur creation, like separating the model for the fur, map creation in Mari, fur shading, and preparation for the rendering in V-Ray. I will also go through over some important steps like reference research, modelling and compositing – however, I will keep that as short as possible.
