Today i made the rubber bit (pretty easy excepted I had to curve it just enough so the shanks would stay outside of the blinkers. I also did the neck strap and started on the lever strap, this one will appear and disappear automatically whether you are wearing the bridle or not.
I will also have a chin strap. This is so much work compared to regular prims, but the result makes all the difference!
For those wondering why a lot of my “in progress” mesh shots have a checkerboard texture on them, it is because I adjust the uvw map for a constant pixel density on the object and a checker texture is the most obvious way to test it.
