Did any of you ever created a short realistic looking fur without using Sasquatch? I need to create fur on a giraffe and a horse and wonder if there's another solution than using a fur plug in like Sas or Shave'n'Haircut. I realized that especially on a horse the BDRF shader looks brilliant. Any guesses?

Every answer is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I`d look at the velvet shader.

If shaders don`t cut it you could always go poly-mad and do a point clone plus job :) It doesn`t rotate the clones, so you`d use a tesselated, spikey ball not a cone. This is completely insane and you`d only do this if you were desperate :D

Have you thought of getting Meshpaint.

I thought more about using a bump map. If you displace a procedural bump map with another one you get some pretty nice streaks in some areas. I thought there might be a way to do this automaticly. I'd hate to paint this pattern by hand.
