How to make soft wavey hair?
How do you make hair with gentle wavey hair?
The max. kink scale, 1000, is still to small for this, and with the curl tool I only get really "coiled up" curls that go all the way round (and stay in place)
Am I missing something?
You have to adjust the kink strenght to get wavy hair, a lower kink scale is a must: 1000 is far too much, 100 or lower will do for wavy hair with a kink strength of 10.
Here is a sample, I only used it for the lower hair to get a subtile wavey effect.
And here are my settings:
Maybe I had also to many vertices per hair.
I think too many vertices doesn't matter, kink delay is more important: it determines the start of the wavey or curly effect.
You're better off with higher vertices. If they are too low, you'll get jagged angles in the hair. Think the old crimping irons only not as nice. Like bopperthijs had, 50 is good. The only thing with more vertices is that draping takes longer.
I rarely use draping. It's just too unpredictable, I prefer styling.
50 is a good setting to get your hair not too chunky
