Clothing and Texturing
Another goal for the year is to create African themed clothing for all seven Kinara’s Children characters. In order to make new clothing, I use a combination of modeling new meshes (3D shapes) or downloading clothing meshes from various sources. Once sized and fitted to the figures, the meshes can be combined and retextured into brand new KC African style fashions. You can see some of my other experiments with Imani and Ujima.
Here are some experiments and works in progress. Kuji’s in her “peacekeeping” gear inspired by popular culture. I’ve also got a nifty spear to add from a previous image. I’m learning to texture and paint on my clothing models in Blender while trying to figure out something about fashion design at the same time. I’m happy with the results but this outfit is subject to change. Just having fun with it 😉
