PLEASE ENLARGE - I MADE IT WIDE SCREEN WALLPAPER SIZED
Well, I was going to dedicate this to ALL G4 fans out there but it just wouldn't be right after all the help Rod gave me on this. I bugged the poor guy ALL weekend while I struggled my way through creating this dress, and he put up with me like a true friend.
It didn't come out as good as I'd hoped it would and certainly not nearly as good as if Rod had done it himself but, I am not totally displeased with it - for being my first attempt anyway.
I morphed and rendered my G4 character in Poser 8 wearing only her gloves, shoes and hair (poor girl was nikked other than that), then I put her into Abobe Photoshop and tried my hand at creating a dress for her as per RodS's free tutorial.
I must say the poor girl was far more patient with me than I was. So was Rod. LOL.
But here it is for better or for worse. I made an attempt to put sequins on her dress if you're wondering what all the sparkly looking things are supposed to be.
Please leave a comment. Perhaps you have some suggestions for improvement.

OOOOOOOO MMMMMMMMM GGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mike, this is totally AWESOME!!!!! G4 as Jessica R, I LOVE it! Jessica never looked HOTTER! My friend, really - for your first attempt at Photoshopping clothing, you did a great job! Another couple like this, and you're there! Learned well, you have, my Padawan... Suggestion - try doing a few simple Photoshop pieces of just cloth - say curtains hanging from a wall. Doing the pleats in pretty easy; just vertical bands of light and dark. Follow my tut, practice a couple times, and I think you'll get the hang of the shading and displacement maps pretty quickly. You are well on the way, buddy! Keep plugging away at it, and you'll be teaching me :-D Sequins are a little hard to get the hang of. Generally the sparkles should follow the highlight (specular) areas; concentrate them there, and just have a few random sparkles in the other areas. Hehe - another tut ;-D In the meantime, I'm going to be doing a second tutorial on this technique, so stay tuned.. I'm going for a COLD shower, now. WHEW is she HOT!! Man, I LOVE her skin! NIIICE tan! I'm gonna have to check out those textures. I love the caption, too - that's just tooooo cool! Awesome work, Mike! Seriously!
