Almost finished the blue drape top. If I like the shading in game, I'll start making the other colors. Still need a bump map. Then in game pics. Then upload. Might finish during spring break, don't have to teach, and baby is in daycare part of the day! I can actually sim!
Belted Drape coming along slowly

Been working on the belted drape top very slowly because baby. Also been making a redonkulous number of leggings. I think I'm satisfied with the basic shape of it now. Needs a whole lot of shading! Edges need to look more like drapey folds. Might finish this year? XD

New Project: belted drape top
Just started blocking this out. Will probably make it longer to better match the idea photo.
Here are some tops I'll be uploading this week, soon as I get the preg morph to behave. I will add a variety of alpha sleeves to this alpha mesh later. Also have another mesh with a looser tunic. It will have various sleeves as well, but I'm still tweaking that mesh. So many texturing ideas, so very, very little time. I love baby and my job but I do miss my cc'ing time. One day, will teach baby to make cc for The Sims 9 maybe?
Working on a series of tanks and tunics, with and without sleeves. Here's a four corner hem tunic. I keep tweaking the mesh. Making it longer, adjusting the normals for a smoother appearance, changing the UV map as I find small distortions. Still need to test it in game. What looks good in MilkShape can look terrible on a sim standing with her toes slightly angled out due to leg weights in the tunic. Slowly hand painting a texture. It may end up with embroidery on it, we'll see. Might leave it plain. Maybe both? Wouldn't give up my snuggly baby for the world, but he does change my priorities and simming gets pushed down the list. Expect these shirts at some point. This year. Maybe. Lots more planned, but will I find time? We'll see.
Sims 4 Review

The Escapist is one angry Australian! Here's his review of The Sims 4. I'll stick with 2, thanks. XD
I'm always too hesitant and timid with shading. End up having to add more highlights and shadows. That's why the button capris aren't up yet, but I think I'm finally satisfied with my first texture. Now to add a few more colors. Just a few. Not 37! Must restrain self. Then upload!
Making progress on one of the graphic empire waist tanks. Base texture done, needs seams and folds shading, bump mapping, maybe a fabric overlay, then done! Then I just want to make the 3 or 4 or 28 other tank styles I have planned... Lots of tanks and tunics in the works on various meshes, stay tuned!
