Ok as a part of my “I’m finally going to learn to do this stuff…”

I plan on creating something so going to start researching the flow.  Usually once I do something once, I pretty much got it.

So the idea is to make like socks or underwear from start to installation that I can use.  (I assume, and that could be wrong, that even though the approach is basically the same that doing socks or underwear would be a lot simpler than let’s say a ballroom dress).

I do plan on trying it for Genesis.  I do have all the older stuff too but find I hang out more with Genesis than before and apart from not having a lot of clothing and stuff I would like I really like the Genesis shape more.

It would be cool to be able to make a complete person eventually.  I usually buy everything (spend a lot lol) but it would be great to say, “Hey, I did that.”

I’m installing Hexagon tonight.  I know I’ll need a modeling program so maybe scrounge around and find some tutorials.  I’ve already been looking.

And I’ve seen a lot of buzzwords like template, UV, Mesh, etc.  I have no idea how all of those fit together but it should be fun finding out.  I also do tutorials at work so once I find out the basics I can make myself a How to guide.  I’m getting older so memory isn’t as good as I would like any more.

Anyway,  was there a question in all of that?  Hmmmmm.

If those words are strange to you, you’ll need to start with a tutorial on modeling in Hex.


When you’ve got a mesh modeled around Genesis, come back and we’ll go from there.

Thanks!  Actually I started the first tutorial tonight. 


And BTW, I like the stuff you make.  I bought several things this week and especially was interested in the morphs.

Great!  Morphing can be very fun and rewarding.  We’ll make sure you learn that, too. grin
