For my senior project, I'm planning to lookdev a mermaid/water nymph character in a lake. I'm creating her groom and will be handling the water & hair dynamics as well.
Above is a concept sketch I made, inspired by some of the images from the mood board I put together below. The emphasis will likely be on her hair and shoulders-up; we may not see her tail beneath the surface of the water for the scope of this project.
My first step is to do a hair & water dynamics test to ensure the feasibility of the composition. I'm working with Houdini for most of this project, including the hair & water simulation.
