I am a 3D hobbyist (DazStudio) that enjoys making textures for the clothing outfits I obtain for my characters. I like to design the clothes that me, children, my family, or my friends would wear in real life. Although I can and sometimes do render my designs using 3Delight, I am leaning more towards o focusing on textures designed for Iray. I do own and use Poser from time to time but Daz Studio is my program of choice. When designing clothing I image that I am in a fabric store and select the fabrics that catch my attention. My patterns are the base outfits that I own. I like to dress my characters in realistic real-time clothing. Occasionally I may venture off into something different but not too often. Designing clothing is like sewing in a way. Many of the same techniques. I learn new things everyday and really enjoy what I do. Eventually I hope to get my designs in a couple of stores but will always keep in mind that many of my fellow hobbyist are on fixed incomes and do not have the means to purchase the more expensive items. I enjoy sharing my freebies but I do welcome donations. My goal is to one day earn enough from my designs to support my monthly 3D habit.
