Half Braided Afros

By request, a loose afro style with cornrows on the side. 

There are some transparency issues with this hair from certain angles, and I'm fairly certain these issues cannot be fixed short of remeshing the trouble parts.  Since I've already remeshed this thing once, I'm calling it a day and saying it's good enough.  I'm experimenting with a couple different methods for creating a poofy afro texture without resorting to the whole solid-ball-covered-with-transparent-outline trick, so this was one of the results.  There will be more in the future.

Despite all the above, I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.  (I just have a little bit more to learn for next time!)

The poly count is a little on the higher side, at about 8400 polys. This hairstyle is enabled for children unisex and for teen-elder females.  Enjoy!

Thanks, though I think I'm way better at textures than I am at meshing. I'm learning how to get better at meshing, though, with lots of trial and error.

I seriously love you for making this. I mean, I had one of those moments where I shouted, "FUCK YES" at my computer screen and I didn't even feel embarrassed about it. Thank you.

I pretty much shouted that

I pretty much shouted that when I tested out the first working, mostly-non-glitchy version in my game. :)

Haha, it doesn't feel "out of the blue" for me, but thank you :)

I need to think more about

I need to think more about both of those (either converting it myself or giving someone else the ok to convert it). I'll post another reply when I reach an answer.

:D

thank you for thinking about it :) that makes me happy to read.

I decided that I'm okay

I decided that I'm okay giving permission to someone else who wants to convert this mesh. I have made a request topic at GoS. You are also welcome to ask around anywhere else to see if someone would like to convert this hair, but please direct them to me after they agree so that I can provide them with the original files that will make the conversion easier.

Oh Yeah!!

Kitty you are absolutely amazing, this is fantastic, omigod!!! How in the HELL did you do this?? First of all, I don't know if you know of Erykah Badu, (my favorite artist)but she had a photo shoot and her hair was EXACTLY like this, I don't know if that's where your inspiration came from but it's uncanny. Secondly, thank you thank you thank you, for all these much needed ethnic hairstyles, they inspire me so much to make sims that are different and edgier, my story lines have become so much more interesting. Thirdly, you're an awesome creator, always different, and always ahead of the game.
