Okay, here’s the newest product model, Cassidy! NOT in her permanent hair- but in Chelsea Hair. This is the out of the box, no messing with it results. It went on the head smoothly- and it’s for Genesis and Generation 4, so if you like it, you can use it on a variety of your figures! There is a wide range of colors with it, too. After the render I fiddled with it and things moved quite easily. A fun, messy hairstyle- and seemed to just “go” with the overalls. Reminded me of Ellie Mae from Beverly Hillbillies! (Showing my age.)
Making Your Ledge Larger
I doodled with this (and didn’t have Photoshop, didn’t do layers- just painted over the details which means they won’t be as crisp. Trying to illustrate a point, not do artwork, if you know what I mean.) If you want to practice altering a scene in postwork, say, your ledge and your subject didn’t quite get lined up the way you wanted- you can widen it with postwork. But a couple things (and I am keeping this EASY for non- drawers) to help you merge what you’ve added with what is there-
1. If it’s a curved surface, remember to put light in the dip if your subject is lit at that height. Aka, if her stomach is lit, the ledge addition would be lit too, fading as it goes back.
2. Put in an irregular, darker line (broken up) where the new ledge meets the other surfaces and blend the matching wall or ground into it. (using transparency of 85% up works well.)
3. That said, don’t be afraid to be bold- and IRREGULAR. The last thing you want to do is have something so uniform (particularly if you are dealing with stone) that it looks “fixed.”
4. If you’re darkening the ledge, lighten some of the background so the contrast isn’t the total responsibility of what you’re adding. Make them team players!
After you look at these two images, I will share something else in the next post.
As for the Casual Denim outfit, it went on like a dream, no problem adjusting the morphs for this extreme sitting position (the leg on the left as we look at it could be tighter around the top of the thigh, but is easy to do.) Lots of morphs, easy to fit, highly recommend. Shown without the black shirt that goes under the overalls. (Didn’t try to fit it but everything else I tried was easy and there are a lot of chest morphs for the overalls to expand.)
