WIP CRAZY AND KIJIKO HAIRS FOR MORROWIND

Hallo :D

I did have this on my DRUMM! thread, but since it is technically its own gig I thought I would put it here.
As some of you already know, I am converting maxim and dustinflan's beautiful boy hairs from Oblivion to Morrowind.
Why? Because Boys need love too dangit! And we have a lot of girl hairs but not enough boy hairs ;)

Here are links to the original mods in case you are interested ^^

This is Maxim and flan's blog that is part of permissions required to be posted with the mod ^^
Warning, it does contain nude art, but I think its quite beautiful :) http://www.maxheartflan.com/

And of course the original authors:
Cazy hair: thesimsresource.com/artists/Cazy/
cazycx.tumblr.com
Kijiko hair: kijiko.catfood.jp
kijiko-sims.tumblr.com

I know I am not the best at approximating workload. But I think I am about 2/3 of the way through.
Mostly I am tweaking meshes here and there to fit heads, and adding colors.

I'll post some screenshots soon of hairs in game :)
Hugs and loves - Lokichan

Excellent - it is great to see some male diversity - I begged Mandamus to make me some male hairs for my last face replacer pack - these would have added some welcome variety as well - there are a few there that remind me of the scruffy hair in Skyrim

Awesome idea looking forward to playing with them Lokichan :)

I am having some difficulties making the hairs look quite as fluffy/realistic as in Oblivion. Obviously the game engines handle these things differently, and graphics extenders help somewhat but the way thing look in oblivion v Morrowind is still very different. Any texture advice would be appreciated. I am playing with contrasts and shading to aid with that...it seems to be helping. I can go in and add highlights streaks etc to help...but I want this release to be as close to the original as possible. Also Kijiko  allows no re-textures and I want to honor that but still have the hairs look the best they can be.

(Loki is very much wishing PeachyKeen was here to give her advice...)

Sorry its taking so long, but I have photoshop and Quixel now to help me...soo I should be able to fix my issues here soon :) I have always found photoshop intimidating but I am getting over my fears and it is very very helpful..now I am learning new controls and learning Quixel from the ground up.

And seriously guys...all of you who model and texture should pick it up...because Quixel is freaking AMAZING! XD

If I could get the alpha layer to not have a wihitish waxy layer around the original textures, or black stripes on my new one...then we should be good.

Grr

Yeah there seems to be an issue with that look at the pictures , and video on my Erud-Dan's Spear replacer. Not on the feathers on the spear shaft there is a slight area along the edges where the alpha is applied to the texture. I'm not certain if there is a fix, but maybe some one on BSF might have an answer.

Well rats. I just made my character, and now I may need to give him a new face.

lol, heads will not be included with this mod only hairs ;) Heads will be in my DRUMM HNH (Heads and Hairs) part pf Dress up my Morrowind mod. But if it helps, all of the hairs I release will also have wigs available ;) Hopefully you won't have to switch your face XD

First I have to get my alpha issue solved >:( ... grrr lol

I'm sorry there hasn't been any activity on here for awhile. But I finally have meds that I think are working for my severe dizzy/headache etc problem.
At least they are showing promise at the moment :) I am able to do short bursts of work at the computer so hopefully (just like I said in my other post) I can update with more work soon :) I am sorry to press anyone's patience.
