It uses the same “new” material that the revosuit uses, has glued seams on the pattern, an optional back zip (some asked me a version without a zip) and you can use it with and without ponytail and pigtails. I highly recommend that you grab the ponytail haircut “Genius” from Tuty, it work very well with the hood.
I also made a “complete” edition that has all colors, you save a bit more than 25% with it.
I was done. All the hoods where ready, and i only had to make the product pictures. And then as my avatar smiled at me between screenshots.
This is where I realised that i forgot to alpha out the mouth and teeth section, I have to fix it and re upload everything…
Well… more work to do.
Another issue with the ponytail hole alpha, this isn’t my lucky day 😀
I’ve done a lot of rendering mostly thursday and friday, the hoods will have the following options:
- Pigtail holes.
- Ponytail hole.
So that’s nine combinations par package I suppose.
Should I do the basic/premium/complete thing that I did with the revosuit again?
I forgot to mention!
This is over a hair base, actually the Genius hairs from Tuty.
With the base version that is. I really want to make a pony tail version and bi-chromic versions too. I did a complete defrag/reorder yesterday which took 24 hours ( 1 terabyte -_-) so that took all Tuesday.
To compensate here is a BUNCH of pictures of the current state of the hood. It’s all red because it is the only color that show all the details, so that’s what I usually work with.
I rebuilt the lower lip shape about 3 times and played for a while with the dept of the seams before settling on those.
The first few pictures have glares on the lips and chin that i removed in the last picture. I think it’s a bit better like that.
Second attempt on the hood. This time, I’ve used a higher resolution texture and a non smoothed mesh. Also spent a while tweaking and tuning the eye openings and the mouth and I think it’s looking as .. good as it ever will.
It’s a bit mexican wrestler -ish I suppose, but I like the way the lines look, very smooth and aesthetically? It is pleasing me.
I’ve started working on something that was bugging me for a while, i really want to have a better array of hoods available at my shop. So this is what I’ve been doing today, or more accurately: what I’ve been failing at today.
It looks bad, the texture looks fine, but it sucks when worn. I must have done something wrong somewhere.
Anyway, I’m not sure this is going to be the thing I will release next, maybe i will work on other things too. But i thought that after a week of silence, I should at least tell what I’ve been up to.
