Easy Eye Lashes

Postby brkurt » Mon Dec 28, 2015 4:17 pm

Lots of people asking for this one. Here's a way to make eyelashes off your mesh--whichever one you choose--in about 10 minutes.
This is for Blender people first, but Maya/Modo folks probably have similar commands.

I'm going to select two loops--one around each eye--and separate them out to their own layer. I named them 'eyeLashGuide'.


Then I'm going to create two Bezier curves--one for upper eyelashes, one for lower--and convert them to meshes. Remember to do your UV mapping now!

The next part is strictly Blender. Parent the curves to the appropriate eye lash guide. Then Duplivert the Guides.





Here's the complete combination:


I'm going to do a Yafaray render to show how soft shadows create themselves simply by a render setting, rather than by alpha channel tricks.


Here is the same principle applied to eyebrows. Overall, this is about a half-hour of work to create a reasonably good combination.


If you can't be bothered learning all this, here is the eyelashes wavefront obj.
