The Blin shader didn’t look right through Fisty’s glass… so I went to a satin shader for the petels…

Hi wancow,

I just found this picture on a Disney collectible website and I wasn’t sure if you have seen it, so I thought I post it for you so
you could see the dress in a 3D aspect. smile

I don’t know if it’ll help but I figured what could it hurt. wink

Thank you, Stephanie!  The way the bodice is connected to the skirt in that sculpture actually is going to relieve some of my headaches!

I would love to have the dress and hair when you are finished, checked the whole thread and you are coming along famously…Good Work

Side note…when finished, will you be including a template?  I have noticed more and more lately that many Genesis items do not come with a template and I end up using the images in the texture folder for templates.

Yours is looking nice. I keep intending to render the entire line, but if I do them chronologically I don’t get past Snow White and if I do them in interest order I get sidetracked. wink Here’s a few that I did:
Ariel: 1 2
Belle: 1
Pocahontas: 1
Snow White: 1 2
Aurora: 1

You’ve inspired me to give another go at this—again, your Belle is gorgeous. smile

the dress is progressing… I have most of the modelling done, some adjustments need to be made, of course.  This is a transfer util test.  I used the MFD for the base figure to transfer to, but I’m going to rig it very, very differently.  I still have to make he shoulder wings, and those will have custom bones so they work proper…  the dress skirt will have four base mover bones with two coming off each of those.

I’ll be sending it to DS at base resolution and let DS subdivide it when done.  I didn’t in this case, so this is not the final mesh, just a test…

I’ll make one if necessary.  If an item does NOT come with a template, you can always use UVMapper to make it uvmapper.com

Wendy is working on some satin shaders, and I promised to do the same to see what we can come up with.  Thanks for this!

playing around with materials and did a test at base resolution exported to DS.  Subdivision is level 2 in DS and you’ll notice the skirt drapes (that’s what I call those drapy things hanging aroudn the skirt) are sunk into the skirt itself.  So what I’ll do to fix that is this.  After I rig the skirt, I’ll bring those drapes in separate and conform them to the dress… that SHOULD work…

Don’t know if this works with the drapes, but I was told that to stop buttons sinking into the garment you need to make the mesh denser behind them, then they won’t sink in.

Tthe drapes are based on the skirt mesh so making them their own figure should work… that and I have to add a pearl at the top of each drape edge to make it authentic….  I think I’m going to try just making it its own figure and see how that works…  If not, I’ll try slicking up the polygons below the drapes.  But I am trying to keep the mesh as low poly as possible.

This is how the dress looks on Belle as is.

EDIT… doing the drapes as a separate figure WORKED! smile  Second render (the one with the rose)

This image (linked) might be the final pose for the piece… I rather like it.

...now you’ve done it. 

Now I’m working on one of my own.


Sill have a ways to go but think I’m on the right track.
