How do I model a white collar?
I've asked this question in a manner in another topic but it's never got looked at so I guess it's too old a topic now or I'm asking the wring questions..
I'm modelling a shirt with cuffs and collars and sleeves etc - well i've done the sleeves by extruding from the shirt body, however the collar is a little different.
I want the collar to be white where the shirt is chequered, so how do I model the collar so that it remains part of the shirt when parcelled together.
I've tried welding parts of two seperate objects together but the problem is that object them becomes one and the colours cannot be changed independantly. Besides - I've had several failures and crashes even when all the smoothings were collapsed and never managed to simply weld two seperate object edges together.
If I group a seperate collar to the main torso, will it stay grouped to the main section when the model moves or will it become detached?
(thinking about this I could try a test on the cuffs of the shirt I am doing to see couldn't I? :-) )
However I'm thinking of the opening up the front of the shirt also and that has to be a white button strip so you might be able to see why i'm worried.
The other thing I am concerned about is the squares on the shirt - will the checkered pattern look different on the body to the arms and can I set the arms for a different material because I want the stripes to do down the sleeves.
When I create the material - can I create some png somehow which has the pattern of the sleeves on it like the png's which appear somehow on the manekin in the background - having said that he does not look well!!!
So many questions I know - but please bear with me - it's my second modelling attempt at an item of cloting...
