Fur Test

I've been attempting to add some fur and lighting to an animated character.
The first thing I've learned is natural fur is very hard to get right. There is a very large gap between the fur anyone can do with a couple clicks in Maya and the fur on Sully in Monsters Inc. that looks perfect and probably had a team of technical directors working day and night for a year. There really doesn't seem to be a middle ground. Fur seem to looks terrible until it looks perfect.
