Some time back I commented that I’d wanted to upload the dirt masks I used on the textures in case someone wanted to make Cherry more grubby, but that I couldn’t find the images. Finally found them, stuck in a folder where they shouldn’t have been. Of course.
Here are the dirt mask layers. Right-click-save and apply to the texture as you see fit (just remember to save the results under a new name!) Used with Halloween Treat #03: Scary Cherry Xtras and Scary Cherry Xtras Add-On.
Also, if anyone wants her templates let me know and I can upload them here.
Not a productive weekend. All I did was tinker with the textures I’m working on for the G3F Princess Line Dress, trying to fake seams for solid color textures. The lines of the dress are pretty but only obvious when textured with prints. Since I’m big on solid colors or very subdued prints — tends to look less busy for the sort of renders I prefer — I wanted to see if there was a way I could do this:
Probably a non-issue with renders that aren’t closeups, but I think it looks okay.
Also, for those who do postwork, I keep forgetting to mention some nice overlay textures from the CoffeeShop Blog:
I tend to use them with the Soft Light layer setting, at various opacity levels, but play around with them to see what you like best.
