I'm a mesher, okay? Shading is hard. I hate shading. Here's a work in progress. I'm not thrilled with today's shading. Tomorrow I'll surely feel more chipper about fighting with GIMP some more. Sleep does that.
I know what I *want* it to look like, I have source photos, I'm just not an artist. Argh. This is why I've been putting off tunics for so long. Want less boobs, crisper fabric folds, less chalky highlights, and a dark seam along the bottom edge, for a start.
Maybe I should look into The Big Tradeoff? Maybe I can mesh for someone and they can texture for me? A thought for later...
Also to file for later, take a lesson from Sentate and incorporate folds and bumps into meshes. Of course, that locks me into one shape and I like meshes that can be painted to look like different shapes.
Potty training the toddler over Thanksgiving break! I might not get back to this for several days. Maybe I'll look more kindly on shading after a break from it
