VS Rainbow Dress

Rainbow Dress. Original title, I know...

This is the first dress that I have finished modelling and texturing using Hexagon. I have a few dodgy projects that need the recycle bin but other than the shirt and skirt that I made for Jeanette in my previous artwork, this is the first clothing item I have finished properly. I've only been modelling for a few weeks...

I don't know how to do wrinkles and movement morphs yet, to add that touch of realism. (I'm still making friends with UV mapping too.) Otherwise the bones for the skirt's "thighs" suit my purposes fine.

I've always wanted to do promo shots like the ones seen at Daz and Renderosity so this was a lot of fun and pretty easy!! If anyone is interested in the dress, I considered offering it as a freebie on Rendo or Share CG, however, there would be some serious warnings about not flaying me on my modelling ineptitude. :p

From a distance, my transparency maps don't seem to show, but the lace is transparent and the first four sections of colour are slightly transparent.

That is fantastic. Should you release it anywhere, I'm the first fan in line for grabbing it! :pat:

Then I will tweak it, make it better and release it somewhere! Rendo or SHareCG? I'm so happy someone wants it!

If I was to decide, I'd go for ShareCG. It's more reliable when it comes to searching for stuff, Rendo insists on showing Marketplace goods before the freebies and I never figured out the way to search only the freebie-zone.

Ah, I put it up on ShareCG about a week ago! :) It's under the same name. :)

Thanks a lot, it helped me. Off to render some girls in that cool outfit :D.

Awesome! And as I say in the ReadMe, it was one of my first modelling attempts so it is not perfect. :P I'd love to see it if you use it!

I cannot wait to do so :D. I need to sort my content before and establish additional runtime - whoops, DAZ's folder grew so big that I barely have any space on that drive, so I'm planning a move with the rest of my files :).

These are great! I really like the purple one (second from the left) and the dark, gothic one. Really great promo shots, great lighting, nice sets and well posed models. The dress is really nice, very well made, and having seen Hexagon in use I know it cannot have been easy to make, but you've done a great job. Look forward to seeing more things like this from you :)

For a first finished project, I think it looks really good. Love the black version in the fourth frame :) :heart:

Thankyou! :) I worried that the goth frame didn't complement the three bright frames but my partner preferred the dark one over all it stayed!
