Couldn't quite find the answer I was looking for so if you know how to or can link to an existing post that would be great!
I'm trying to create a carpet based on an image (Persian Rug). I've created single colored and multi colored rugs using vertex groups but they have been quite simple. Does anyone know how to take an image of a detailed pattern with many colors and apply hair to it and have it match the colors/ separate based on color? There must be a fairly fast way of doing this.
