This Ain't Rocket Science...WIP thread

Fifth and final set (I hope). I need an opinion on this one. It may or may not have a problem. I had some minor issues with the uv map for the pants a while ago. Fixed it, no problem. Now, standing in a t-pose or viewing in 2d the uvmap is near perfect (as near to perfect as I can get it, anyway). When Dawn is posed as in the picture there appears to be a bit of stretching around the ankles. It's most noticeable on the right leg. Now, my question is, is this a problem or not? On the one hand, I say that would be exactly how a material might behave in real life. On the other hand, it's not perfect, I'm doomed.:(

I hadn't really noticed this until now. The checkerboard material is a real test for the uvmap. I won't do that again. :unsure:

I love the checker board!

And pants that tight would most likely have stretching. I don't see it as a problem (tho others might).

They look nice David. I wouldn't be bothered by a bit of stretching there as it will be only barely visible.

Well, that a relief. Now, I can worry about how to make these look good in Firefly. Boy, will that be fun. :unsure:

I agree with what's already been said, and with the boots over the ankles, you really can't see it. In fact, the first time I went through the textures, I hadn't even noticed it. It wasn't until I re-read your comments, that I went back and looked specifically at that area.

Oh, and BTW, red and black is my all time favorite color combination. ;)

OK, been gone awhile, but now I'm back. This outfit is done and soon to be resting in beta tester's hands. Barring some egregious oversight, I think it shouldn't be too long before this one is submitted to the store.

I'm already working on a new project. It's really stretching my abilities, but I'm psyched about it. Hope to have something to show soon. :)
