As I suggested the other day, I have been able to use pattern xar121 for furnishing and, with the help of Poser, I have been able to apply the design to an armchair.

This is, I believe, a standard armchair that I found in Poser 12 by using search. The chair, in its natural form, has a cloth covering but no UV map which, of course, makes life much easier since I just need to substitute my pattern for the pattern that the manufacturer created.

The swatch for the pattern I have used is shown above and is very similar to the pattern that I used in the last post except that I created an interlinking element in the centre to make it more suitable as a furnishing fabric. Uploaded onto Flickr are three versions of the armchair each one using a different coloured pattern.

For those who are familiar with Poser, the material settings for the armchair have been changed by the addition of some turbulence as a displacement and some noise as a bump. These are only small amounts but they do make a noticeable difference to the look of the armchair making it appear, in my view at least, a little more realistic. If anyone wants to know the amounts then I will be happy to give further details or perhaps, even easier, post a screenshot of the material settings.

Creating textures is something I have been doing for a number of years and I enjoyed making the new materials for the chair. This is something that I will continue to do in the future as several people have expressed an interest in 3D work.
