Baglet - 08 June 2012 02:45 AM

Welcome from me too Melanie. That supersuit looks worth getting. I think they missed a trick going overboard with the comic strip stuff.


Still trying to get my head round two emails from DAZ. One said I had unsubscribed to newsletters (while logged out and asleep) but the other gave me 9 months PC for free. Bug reports submitted.


Another day, another tile. This is more altar fabric but a different style. That’s amazing getting a tile out of the Priddy photo. I’ve used the GIMP but not often as I only have it on the Linux box in my work office. Note to self - install it on PC.

Thanks for all the lovely tiles Baglet…

I wish they would offer me 9 months pc free.

Thank you for another beautiful tile Baglet!  I do love brocade.  And lucky you getting the offer of 9 months free PC… Must go check my emails just in case smile

No more renders from me this weekend though - hence the glut of them last night - off to a village fete in Somerset, so just praying it stops raining.

Finished work early today so I’ve made a quilted tile. It’s from a sleeve in a painting but I can’t remember which one - I’d captured the image for something else. It seems to work anyway.

Hope the fete goes ok and the storms will have calmed down.

Hey all!
I wanted to thank Baglet for all the nifty textures!  Very, very spiffy!

Also, wanted to to a WIP-drop of some upcoming freebies (should be done this next month or so…)
More men’s headgear: mostly Near Eastern stuff:  turbans, fez(es), Arabic headscarves (keffeyah..?), Mongol/russian fur caps.

Those look great Rosemary. It’s hard to get Arabian and N African things that aren’t on the fantasy side. The turban will also double as some female renaissance headgear. I’ll have to look up my photos from a very good Mongols exhibtion I went to in Hungary. The few that worked anyway.


I’m hoping to get MD soon but I’m not sure what the state of it is. Currently it’s version 2 but I’m not sure when version 3 is coming out. I don’t want to have to pay to upgrade soon after getting it. I tend to avoid their forums because of the small number of exhibitionist crazies who always want a fight.


Another tile from another church, found while I was indexing recent photos today. This one very Baroque.

Such beautiful textures Baglet…you have your own folder in my textures library where I keep these so I can find them easily.

Rosemaryr, your headdresses look fantastic as usual.

Leander, hope you enjoyed your fete…

One of the things I’ve been playing with over the wet and stormy weekend is a quilted displacement. This is the tile on the main material of the breeches from Esha’s Musketeer. Tiled at 5 repeats in DS.

Hi Baglet,

That looks good. Have you seen the quilt shaders by Zigraphix that are in the DAZ store? I’m on my way to work so don’t have time to search for a link but they have a variety of quilting patterns and also different levels of displacement.

Ah dear, I didn’t get a message to say there were new posts!  Baglet, yes, exactly, that’s precisely the sort of thing your quilted tile will look so good on.  I had a go at making displacement for it and haven’t quite managed a satisfactory result yet, but I live in hope!  Otherwise, yes, Pendraia, you’re right, I may need to turn to the quilted presets in some of the other sets.

Sorry not to have any more renders just now.  Work has been a bit crazy.  Fortunately I can report that we managed to secure the only four hours of sunshine over the entire weekend for the village fete, which was a huge relief.

I wanted to draw your collective attention to this blog, which I’ve just added to my Google Reader feed.  It’s full of historical goodies and today there’s a guest post by Lucy Worsley on Georgian costume, which I thought you might like smile

The rest of the blog is fun too:

That’s an interesting article. I’d always though court fashion would be ahead of the everyday. It must have been torture to wear those things and breathe or move at the same time.

I got over-excited and thought I’d add it on to the wiki. Then I ended up distracted, working on the 15th century Europe page and doing renders for images. I probably ought to get more done on that one first. I’ve still got the hat renders to do and also need to do more textures for and publish my Balzo and Grillanda.

Thanks for the fabric tiles, Baglet. 

Rosemaryr, very nice hats.  Especially, the turbin.  Are each of the colored segments a different pattern piece?

After seeing the Renaissance Male Clothing For Genesis, I wanted to make something similar for M4.  So ... after a couple weeks, I finally completed it.  The trunks are a bit more deflated than the Genesis version (his left hand is too close, so inflated, they were pressing against the ruffle on his left hand).

I enjoyed fun making the outfit, but shoes are a bit more challenging in MD2.  Not that they can be seen in this image!  The outfit includes Hosen, Trunks (with the panes only attached at the waist and legbands), doublet, sleeves (I ended up sewing them to the doublet after all though), neck ruff, sleeve ruffs, soft cap, handkerchief, and shoes.

Ooopsie.

Here is a smaller version of it.

OOhhhh!  Yummy green outfit!  Nice job on the paned slops!  Very Renaissance looking interior set, also.  Very well executed.

Re: the turban.  Yes, each different color represents a different pattern piece.  That way it can be textured like two or three intertwined (inter-twisted?) cloths.  Something like:

It’s far better than the Genesis one. The doublet looks like a doublet and with proper trunk-hose. The ruff (the Genesis one calls it a ‘neck ring’) looks like textile rather than board. The Genesis one was made in MD - you can tell from the UV maps.
