I modeled some clothes in Marvelous Designer (using DAZ Genesis 8 basic male as avatar) and then used DAZ 3D to skin them and fit them to a custom character. The automatic skin is pretty good, but needs some little corrections, for example in the armpit or between the legs.

I’m working now on the “onigawara” 鬼瓦, then the roof will be ready for use. Continue reading “Japanese Modular House Update”
Some Progress On Japanese Modular House
A little progress on the Japanese modular house. I’ve started to do some modelling for the roofs and worked on the walls in a way they look more realistic. I’ve also separated the interior from the exterior. For the roofs (and in general for Japanese architecture) this article is, imho, very useful.
Japanese Modular House (Work in progress)

Japanese Modular House: A small preview of what I’m doing right now. Modelling in Maya LT, texturing in Substance Painter. It looks really improved with respect to the previous version. Still a lot to go before some definitive Japanese modular building set. Continue reading “Japanese Modular House (Work in progress)”
