Zaarin: Here are the first stages of the Ottoman turbans.  These would just be the support structures for the cloth to drape onto (and would be eliminated form the final mesh), but they show the basic shapes I’m going for.  Are they a good size, or should I go even more grandiose?

Oh, they look nice! Though I think my khekhan will take them as grandiose as you can make them without falling off his head. raspberry

Okay, then!  I’ll include a bit wider range in the final offerings.  That way every level of nobility can have an appropriate sized turban to flaunt.

Okay, here’s another shape I’ll add to the mix:  The Grand Poohba.  Closer to the last image in size and rough shape.  We’ll see how it works with the cloth draped on it later.

An MD question.

I’m working on some baggy breeches for M4 and trying to make them so that I can conform them. I have managed the upper parts - abdomen, hip etc but need to split upper and lower leg. I recall that you can do this now with an internal line but I’m not sure how to do this. The manual wasn’t much help.

I haven’t found a way of capturing the pattern window. My capture refuses to work in MD.

Baglet:  I am assuming you need to split the pattern on a horizontal line, corresponding with the colored areas on the legs?

Easiest way to do it inside MD would be to
1) add points along the seam-lines at the place you want to split the pattern,
2) save the garment at that stage,
3) move the 2d patterns of the pants to another area of the 2d workspace for easy differentiation.
4) use File>Add garment to bring in a duplicate copy of the pants; (it’s 2d pattern pieces will be in the original spot), [both pants will be in position and overlapping in the 3d workspace—less simulation work needed!].
5) In the pattern window; on one set of pants, select and delete everything below the points you added, and on the other, select and delete everything above that set; (which removes the unneeded overlapping portions),
6) sew the top and bottoms together, (and any side seam that got messed up by the deletion…it happens sometimes, sometimes not).

Using the internal lines *would* force the polys to line up along that line, so they could be more easily spotted for manual selection in a 3dmesh editor program, if you are more familiar with that work-flow. 

—————————————————
Been busy with work the last month or so, and next month will be even more stressful.  Luckily I have a week off coming up to de-pressurize and do some creation!  I’ll get back to those turbans ASAP! 
Here’s what I was started on before things got crazy at work; draping the cloth:

I’ve been slow to do anything because of some wretched virus. Here is a top I’ve made for Genesis in MD. It fits well but needs a great deal of adjustment to get it over a skirt. The idea was a late 16th-early 17th century bodice with “frill” for a “middling sort” woman. This is just with simple colours over the Pharoahs of the Sun dress skirt as that worked better. I’m also hoping it will do over leggings for a fantasy top.

Long time no action! I’m involved in a startup business so that has had to take priority for months - I am the tech person.

I have a few days free now while our advisors are on their vacations. So I’m putting some of my photos onto the wiki. Every time I see a good tomb, wall painting, brass or similar I take a photo. It’s a huge and ever growing collection. The brasses are diffilcult as some can be in very awkward places - like the church vestry and cleaning store. I’m trying to arrange it all in a time sequence from late prehistory onwards. So far I have Roman and post Roman (Byzantine and other places). Greek does not have anything as I haven’t located them yet.

Hi Baglet….nice to hear from you. I haven’t spent much time on the wiki lately as I’ve been too busy with school.

Hello everyone! Just thought I’d give the thread a bit of a nudge. It’s been a loooong time. But I’ve recently had to reinstall my entire runtime, which reminded me of all the wonderful freebies from Rosemaryr and Baglet and all the fab stuff you guys have been making in MD that I can’t use in DS4 (*sobs*). So I thought I’d come back and see what has been going on, but it’s all been a tiny bit quiet. grin

Hopefully the reinstall will give me the impetus to do some more renders. But if any of the wonderful costumes, shoes or hats shown here have developed further I would love to see images. Hope you’re all very well!

Hi Lyrra, and thanks for the link! I’ve always loved Michele’s work - both product-wise and render-wise. grin
