An update on the Japanese modular house. I’ve finally modeled the “hongawara” roof (本瓦葺) a.k.a the very typical Japanese roof composed of concave tiles “hiragawara” 平瓦 and semi-cylindrical convex tiles “marugawara” 丸瓦. I’m working now on the “onigawara” 鬼瓦, then the roof will be ready for use. Continue reading “Japanese Modular House Update”
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.
UPDATE July, 2018: I’ve completely remodeled again the whole thing to avoid the unsightly borders in the middle of the pillars. Now it’s looking completely differently, look here some more recent posts.
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.

Victoria 8 from Daz3D went to the beach in Unreal Engine 4. Video plus few pics.
It’s relatively easy to create some nice clothes in Marvelous Designer. However, they are very high-poly for a game engine.
So, you may want to retopologize them, but, at the same time, to preserve all nice features Marvelous offers, first, in my opinion, the UV. In fact, in Marvelous, you create your cloth using a sewing pattern as you would in real world. That sewing pattern becomes the UV of your mesh and, in order to have your texture to behave in presence of folds like a real tissue, you want to preserve those UVs.

I’ve modeled some jeans for DAZ3D Victoria8 figure in Marvelous Designer 7. The new Marvelous Designer presents some nice features (Modular mode, Topstitching, Zipper, etc.) with respect to the previous version, but the most important improvement, IMHO, is in the performance, which is really nice. I really had fun doing those jeans and other clothes I’m still working on and will show in the feature. Continue reading “Women Jeans Model”
