i’m still trying to make them look better
but i should get around to saying “enough” and complete them

It’s very easy to get caught in the trap of making something better… but there’s always something you could do better. Remember: “Perfect” is the enemy of “Good”.

Are there any actual problems with the boots as they exist now?

making a figure instead of a prop, takes longer.
i have to model the shoes like ( B ) to get them to look like (C) once Aiko puts them on
and after dozens of tweaks the shape got a little bumpy, as in (A)
but i fixed that issue yesterday

as they are now there’s still problems that appear when Aiko twists her thighs or shin ( D )

and the UV/texture map is not done yet (E)

also Aiko didn’t finish doing boots balancing tests (F)

maybe also add a morph for platform height and heel length

(that’s an animated gif )

Gangnam Style !

since i didn’t put much work in this (meaning an hour) i am not responsible for any side effects caused by viewing this

(ok maybe 2 hours )

( also, please note that Aiko did this voluntarily )

( if you have no idea what this is about then YouTubeSearch for “Psy - Gangnam Style MV” )

~ tall boot news ~~ tall boot news ~~ tall boot news ~~ tall boot news ~~ tall boot news ~

the UV mapping of the boot is done
it’s not ideal but it’s usable
( mostly for, say, adding a bump map for wrinkles )

now before publishing , i have to add morphs to the upper part of the boot and stockings

who knows, it may even be possible to use the boots with the Victorias

, so, today or tomorrow seems to be possible release dates

the 4th image is a victory dance for the fact that the boots work well with all (except one) of the Aiko3 Aikiyu poses

Thanks again Casual!!!

welcome!

next challenge is to add undistorted buttons and straps

i think i’ll make them zero-sized, and inflate them using a morph
to the foot and toe bending wont warp them
