Hair

Post by Xork » Tue Sep 04, 2018 8:48 pm

Here is a trick I devised, (perhaps similar to others)? It makes use of a hair brush, not a typical kind you would use in Clip Studio for example but one designed for Moho. Insert the 'hair brush' into the brushes folder in your Moho folder, restart Moho. Select the 'hair brush' in the styles menu. Adjust the desired preferences, expand the width of the point(s) where you wish hair to appear. See the examples below.
Image
The first image is set to '0' bush spacing and and angle of '0'. the second is to an angle of '1'. the second makes good eyelashes. Try changing the colors of your points for some extra fun.
Tip:
If your lashes have the appearance of reversing direction then simply delete the point and re-add it, the flow angle of the 'lashes' will now appear normal.
Can someone tell me why the hairs in my sample appear to be both Black and also the chosen color of the stroke? is it because the original brush .png is black? Perhaps eh?
The brush is available, just copy this png. or make your own, my symetry is not so perfect, but there you go, ...

Nice brush.

Without seeing the file, I'd guess you have some shapes stacked where the brush has multiple colors.

No stack, one, layer, one shape. I have had this experience before with multiple color. It would be desirable to control this aspect of this bruh, hmmm, ...

Perhaps I can get a quicker answer here, rather than in the 'Post a Question' forum. So, my friends, how do I post a .moho file?

Upload it to a file sharing site, like Dropbox, File Dropper, etc., and post the link to the file here.

Thanks for the link hayasidist but I was thinking more along the line of flowing realistic type hair rather than the short pubic type :)

Cheers

You do have stacked shapes. This often happens when new users use the paint bucket tool. Each has a shape with a fill and stroke on top of a shape with only a stroke. You can tell by either temporarily deleting a fill, or with the fill selected and the cursor over the fill, hitting ctrl+up_arrow and ctrl+down_arrow to select between stacked shapes.

It can also help to enable "Auto-name new shapes" in the preferences, so you can see how many shapes you have and select them by name.

What's happening is that the colored points in the filled and stroked shape apply only to the fill, while the colored points in the stroke-only shape apply to the stroke.

Ah, thnx Wes,
I'm on a Macbook-pro laptop, no up down, bummer. But suppose I'll find a work-around. BTW, on Animator'sFurum.com, I have registered twice, still cannot log in, and can't find an address to ask for help. Can you?

It's usually easier for new users to avoid the paint bucket tool and either create the shapes automatically, using the options in the draw shape or freehand tools, or use the create shape tool on clean vectors. If you need to alter an existing shape, use the select shape tool and change its properties in the style window.

If you tell me the user name you registered with (Earthling?) on the AF, I can approve it.
