In this ZBrush tutorial we will learn how to quickly setup long hair using FiberMesh onto a simple base head. Until now hair inside of ZBrush has primarily been sculpted. Using the new FiberMesh system inside of ZBrush 4R3 we can take a simple base mesh and apply fibers to the model to create more realistic long hair. With the power of ZBrush these fibers can be quickly groomed to achieve a wide array of hair styles. This tutorial will cover some tips and tricks to help speed up usage with FiberMesh to get your models hair that salon look.
