Peregrine Labs Yeti – Mr. Blackfur

I have been testing the new fur plugin for Maya called Yeti by Peregrine Labs this last week, and I made this guy with the apt name of “Mr. Blackfur”. He is a gentlemen who runs a black oil company called EarthKill. A proper oil tycoon extraordinaire! On weekends, he does a great deal of charity work and gets his rocks off by slapping little bunnies in the face with rubber gloves. What a backstory, I know. He is CRAZY.

Take a look at him up real close here.

Anyway, Peregrine’s Yeti plugin is a bunch of fun and relatively simple to use. It took a little time to get into grooming the fur, but I soon got the hang of it. Unfortunately I only have a 30 day trial, so I can’t do a proper project with it just yet.
