Thanks for this, it really encourages me to just do it…slowly. 2 years ago I joined a site, which is actually a game/social site, and began designing clothing for premade avatars. Yes I was doing it all by hand, folds, wrinkles, bulges, etc in Photoshop. Though frustrating at times because tutorials were very limited and there has been hours of trials and errors, I found it very cool and something I discovered I liked…really liked. Now I have found Daz3D, and I feel like I have discovered a 20 pound diamond in a lost cave! I have made a few renders already, mainly for myself and just playing. But it’s very satisfying to me, because I’M happy with the results. To the pro, I’m sure it looks like an 8 year old’s crayon drawing, but it makes me happy. I will get better, I know I will; my only problem is I like shake and bake results. However, after designing these avatar clothes by hand in PS, I know that’s not gonna happen, but that’s ok, I’m gonna be patient on this one because it’s something I love….already. Again, thanks for this post, it has made me step back and say ok, let’s do this by it’s own rules….not mine.
