Modeling for Specific Genesis Shapes
March 12, 2013

LightWave
Modeling
Making-Of
Genesis


I had a discussion recently with someone regarding modeling clothes for a specific DAZ Genesis shape. They suggested that trying to model cute clothing for a specific Genesis morph was impractical due to the fact that the clothing item needs to fit a 6 foot male figure by default.I agree that trying to picture a clothing item on a specific shape while modeling it on a male shape is far from ideal - that's why I'm going to show you how to get around the issue. 

Note: This article presumes that you already know the basic steps to create a conforming clothing item in DAZ Studio.

One of the most often requested toon figures has always been a 3D Universe monkey, and we're pleased to share that one is on it's way!

This little guy is the first of several ape figures, and should be hitting our store in the near future. View the full article for some behind-the-scenes screen shots of the creative process behind this fellow:

Making-Of


I'm going to be modeling a long cloak for a future character, so I figured I'd share the process here for those of you that are interested. This cloak will be created for DAZ 3D's "Genesis" figure.
Inspiration comes from the Lord of the Rings Gandalf character, as well as the Star Wars styled Jedi robes.
