Fur Balls

Hello and welcome back to BlackthornProd !!

Today we are going to show the fur Balls, little round creatures covered in fur with big eyes. The fur Balls are MR Jinxed’s toys and he loves doing cruel expirements on them.

We have made 5 different fur Balls, from left to right (Disco Tech, Polar, sheep, duckling and stone man). All of them were made using a simple nurbs sphere which we added fur too.

All that was left to do was change a few settings, modify the colours, change the fur length and there we go, 5 simple little Fur Balls ready for Mr Jinxed’s insane ideas. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ
