Aff536 As Dress Material

I am pleased to say that I now have three mannequin sets that I can use for fashion patterns and the image here shows one of them which uses as a texture the pattern that I showed yesterday.

This set is a reworking of a mannequin set that I have used previously but now the texture on the dress is fully scalable. This was not possible before and it limited my ability but now that this problem has been solved, I am ready to go.

The figure and the dress are from Daz, a Genesis 2 figure, while the set is constructed in Cinema 4D. In addition, I have tweaked the lighting to give, hopefully, a better final result.

If you wish, you can also see larger versions of this and, of course, my other designs and patterns for interiors on my Flickr page, a link to which is here.

Aff508 Wallpaper

I’m pleased to say that my whimsical pattern worked well as a wallpaper without the need to change the background and it produced just the effect that I think I was looking for.

The set is a living room set that I have used before which shows the wallpaper used on two adjoining walls with the opposite wall, the window and door wall, finished just in plain paint. The pattern is shown at a very small scale which, as I suggested in the previous post, gives the wall a granular look and, I think, an interesting look without it being too bold or too overpowering.

1950s Wallpaper Design Ai252

A 1950s wall paper design

I love the 1950s wallpaper, the designs are so fresh and modern and quite unlike anything that had gone before or, for that matter, anything that came after.

This wallpaper design could only be from the 1950s and this sort of pattern appeared a lot in various incarnations to grace the walls of the new houses that were built following the end of the Second World War. For authenticity the colours for this design come from the palette created by the British Standard Institute in the 1950s. And so I can safely say that the colours are authentic although, it has to be said, not all wallpaper manufacturers followed these particular colours.

The design is bold and fresh and is shown here at quite a large scale which would have been alarming and quite alien to pre-war tastes. However, designs like this found favour because they were new and represented the feeling of the new start which characterised the, it has to be said, rather austere early years of that decade.

The design was created in Adobe Illustrator while the image was rendered using the Showcase set in Cinema 4D with just three items of contemporary furniture that I created some time back.
