    Hillooo fellow devs!

    Was looking at blender addons when I came across these two little gems
    I noticed that there is not a lot of hair choice in the catalog and tough i would share these here in the hopes of encouraging meshers to make moarrr hairs :D
    Now yes, they are paid addons, but I do think they are a must have if you want to make hair quicker, thus boosting motivation
    I am thinking of buying the HairMesher, but need to step up my weight painting game before hand


    HairMesher 18 US (Turns particle hair into mesh) - sellfy.com/p/XFbE/
    Hair tool 34 US (Uses a mesh base system to convert to hair strands, my english sucks, so not sure how to describe it, so look at there awesome tutorial vids to see it in action) - gumroad.com/l/hairtool

    I also suggest reading the descriptions and looking at the forum threads for both tools before making your choice

    Update: Decided to hop for the Hair Tool, simply because it as 2 methods to generate hair (From a base mesh or from particles)
    Tried it yesterday, not bad, not perfect but not bad. I will send a suggestion to the creator to make an option to prevent overlapping of the ribbons
    Sure you can tweek them manually, but with 40+ ribbons, it beats the tools purpouse of saving time and not starting from scratch lol
    Maybe there is a way already, but did not see it in his tutorials... anyways 4 out of 5* atm for all the usefull tools included withing the addon

    I grabbed this a while back too - but haven't had the time to learn it properly; keen to hear how it is.
