SL hair making is a big thing. It seems lately a large number of people have jumped on the bandwagon, and unlike many other areas in SL, that quickly get over flooded with designers of the same style or genre, it seems that hair, is one of those items that we can NEVER get enough of. I personally have had the pleasure of befriending a number of fellow hair creators and learning from them tips and tricks on how to create hair, how to use the tools in the programs we have, and how to make it all work in SL. One of the main things I’ve learned is that there is no one stop guide for it all. It’s made me want to start creating basic tutorials for creating hair, creating mesh in general, and other odd ball things in SL that people could use help on. So with that, when I stopped by an old friend’s store (MaiOwn!), we got to chatting about hair making, and the topic of rigging and making hair for avis who use to use lola breast or large default sl avi breast. I offered to make a quick tutorial on a few things I knew. After a while however – and two full recording with out sound because I forgot to turn on my mic – I decided to stuff together in a 30 min tutorial, a few of the things I’ve learned about rigging via Avastar and blender, along with just some general knowledge about modeling hair. I wanted to share, not just with Emma and Ivanna (the friends I ran into when hair shopping) but all of you, new and old creators, or those looking into starting mesh, to realize it’s not all that scary, and that there those of us out here whom wish to see SL thrive and grow and love to spread the knowledge we’ve obtained over the years.
If you have any questions do please leave them below and I will make sure to get back to you on them! I’m by no means a professional blender or avastar user, so not everything I do might be 100% right. Please keep that in mind, and if you know of a better way I’d be more than thankful to know about it! Please leave it in the comments bellow.
