Burgundy looks just fine, it’s the pink silk under it that’s a bit .... loud!  lol   Perhaps offset it with a dulled green silk, might be a nice combo with a matching green silk pocket hanky.

Now that’s nice idea! I’ll give it a try when the time comes.

Meanwhile, here’s my shot at a green corduroy and another flannel shirt.

The actual pic is much bigger, so do check it out.

Here’s another look, along the general casual lines of this set.

This bloke is what we would call a “Cocky” here in Australia. He probably lives on the land, on a cattle station, polishes off a slab (24 cans) of Fosters on the weekend and always calls women “sheilas.”

Shay has kindly provided a morph to push the shirt sleeves up that will come with with the set.

And here’s yet another casual look. I’ve done several of these worn tartan jackets with leather trim, as well as a black leather set.

Both looks are awesome.  Sorry, had to leave the house for a little while, just too damned hot today and the computer was heating things up worse .... finally cooling down a bit…

You and your blast furnace of a computer *chuckle* I am going to need to send some Missouri winter down your way when the cold winds begin to blow. *chuckle*

Great work on the suit.

I hope the shoulders do get a smidgen more work to increase the crease, as it were. I like sharpish shoulders on my suits. Hell, maybe a zoot suit morph? *chuckle*

I’ve been saying since the second page of this thread that this is a morphing suit, and there are morphs to widen and crisp the shoulders as much as technically possible within the limitations imposed by collision and smoothing. No further work is needed or indeed possible since the suit is now through Daz QA. There are images of the wide shoulders as well, and for everyone that wants them, there is somebody who complains about them.

But people can choose whether to have them or not. You dial them them in. Turn off smoothing, and they become crisper.

If you are commenting on the latest images, I am making a casual, deconstructed set here and the very last thing I’d be doing is try and give the suit sharp shoulders so these morphs are not activated in these images and won’t be in the promo images either. On the contrary, I’m actually using other morphs to try to soften the shoulders as much as possible.

Um… deep breath, okay? Not complaining. Wonderful work.

I had seen the pics and was hoping for a smidgen more but that is cool. I am not inept and can make my own morphs in ZBrush if I feel so inclined.

I think the overall work is INCREDIBLE and I commend you for it. I had one little hope for something but it is no big, okay?

smile

Chill, Maynard. We good! I buy!

It’s almost exactly what I have been asking for previously in other threads and you pretty much nailed it.

Thank you for all your hard work. smile

I’m very happy you like the suit.

I’m trying to say that your morphs probably won’t work the way you want them to, however they look in ZBrush because collision and smoothing are the mortal enemies of crisp. These are as crisp as an expert can possibly make them. Some things are just not possible, as Sickleyield explained earlier in the thread. I think if you do actually try to make the morphs yourself, and then apply them you’ll understand what I mean.

——————————————-

To change the subject, Richard, I want your opinion on something. I was mucking around with the shirt today, trying to do something different with it, and I really don’t know whether this mesh thingy is worth bothering with. I’m pretty sure it looks either cool or terrible, but I can’t decide which.

I think it looks pretty hipster. Which means it has to look terrible in order to be authentic. Market it as such. wink

I’m still in two minds about it.

Here’s a promo I just did. I made a nice embroidered hippy vest from one of the Totally Bazaar Afghani fabrics and also added a fur collar that can be clicked on to any of the textures. This shows how well the pieces mix and match together.

Do look at the bigger image to see the detail on the vest and the fur.

I realize that I’m not Richard, but since this was public ... can I vote for terrible? I mean, I love me a mesh shirt on the right person (even if it does give me 80s punk flashbacks) but that kind of ... doesn’t work. I think it’s partly the combination of the mesh and the plaid; the patterns clash. With a solid jacket, or even a corduroy sort of look it would work. Sort of. I think.

The embroidered hippy vest look, however, is just straight up awesome.

Thanks. I’m pleased you like it.

My vote is for terrible as well, but one has to experiment if one doesn’t want it to be boring. I love the three flannel shirts I’m including because they really take it in a different direction. I was thinking of having a fourth shirt but couldn’t find anything different enough that worked. Eg, putting a knit on it and making it into a cardigan. That worked, was convincing, but was a bit boring and didn’t work well with the other pieces that at least have a distinct style to them.

And here’s a toddler wearing the full denim set. I picked this color denim because it’s very easy to color with your own diffuse.

I think I’ll add another hippy vest…
