I did it the hard way.
i had a picture of a fairy in a dress. i had the model of the fairy already, so i ‘needed’ clothes on her. she was fine without clothes, but thats not the point.
Ok, how i made the dress.
- i had the image of the dress with all its creases and folds, so in front view, i traced it with verticies.
- i split the view into a front view, a side, a variable (one i moved alot to get good angels), button window and a window with the immage i was using.
- from that, i faced everything and did final edits. sice i had the body of the fairy benieth, i could move verticies proportionatly twards the camera since the body was underneth.
this tenique only works on things like drapes, cloths and curtains in the form of a picture. It also woudl be difficult to move since the faces are directly above the lower layer.
Here is the picture of the fairy i did, i posted it a few days ago on anther page.
