Introduction


Welcome!This is my first tutorial, aimed at those of you who, like myself, are beginners in the world of D|S and want to create your own clothes for your characters but don't have Poser. At the moment you can only create clothes using Poser programs, and it's not that straightforward, so here's a great alternative.

Unfortunately it is very difficult to find any tutorials on the subject, so hopefully this will help some of you out there. There may be alternative (and better) ways of doing it, but this is just how I have worked out how to create secondskins.

Please feel free to send me and instant message with your feedback/comments or if anything needs clarifying.

Let's beginů.

This is a great tutorial but what I want to know is how do the vendors create their clothes? The ones that fit onto the character?

Hi, is it only my pc or do the files from page 2 onwards no longer exist?

Great tutorial. I learned alot. However, my DS version 2.2.2.20 is different. One of the differences is that I have to keep reloading the program for it to accept the new changes to the texture. And of course V4.2 is all different. The basics are the same. Thanks.

thanks very much for the simple tutorial, you've really helped me out here. Also, daisymay, you need to select 'Nipples' in the surfaces selectoin, then apply the skin map again after applying it to 'SkinTorso.' I hope that helps.

I'm just learning DAZ and get confused easily, but this tut is great, I was able to make a bathing suit that actually fit!!! I modified it a couple of times to get coverage in the back, but I was tickled to be able to do it. Thank you for a great tut.
