It’s been a long time since last post, but here is something that might interest some of you.
I’ve been busy with work, adventure writing and making handouts, which have not left much time to post here, but now I have something that you might like.
I’ve been playing with some new stuff I’ve learned, and this is the first W.I.P. I think I’m on the right track.
This post is about a request that was on the Dundjinni forum for some items, among them dead police officers as the map was some zombie apocalypse map with dead people, doctors and police officers. The problem was that no one had any good police officers, so I decided maybe I can tweak some materials as I got a M4 Police hat from a hat pack.
We all get chills hearing that, and Reavers are really bad ass baddies, specially when they come in hordes of hundreds, the Uruk-Hai of the Serenity ‘Verse. I needed some pictures of Reavers for Promised Land and I needed some really ugly piercings for them.
So we’re making a version of that Serenity tombstone, that looks pretty cool, and we did the pillar yesterday.
OK, today we will continue with the V4 Archer pants, to see where that take us.
Today we’re gonna make some good looking 3D props for use are ground in your close up scenes. They can tile, but they do have a rather hefty polygon count, so don’t add too many to a scene.
Today we will finish the CIS Vest, our first real Poser figure texture modification. The reason I say figure is because all clothes are rigged, they have bones information so they can adjust to the adjustments of the character they fit to. You make the character skinny, the clothes gets tighter, you make him fat, the clothes get larger. Life is so much better in the virtual world.
So this will be a break in the map making again, showing something else that I’ve learned, and is still learning, and that is making texture modifications to existing Poser and DAZ Studio Props and Figures. This is easy when you know how, but it would be even easier using programs like Photoshop, but I have my toolbox and I have some tools that can make this go really good. This is the first cloth modification I’ve done, this is virgin territory for me.
