One of my favorite parts of creating 3D clothing is trying to make the cloth look and act like it does in real life. Take my new dress BMe Elegance. The fabric is meant to look and act like silk paper taffeta. Taffeta by nature is very lightweight and crisp but what makes paper taffeta wonderful is it acts like paper. When you crumple a piece of paper it stays just how it is until you smooth it out. Well the same with paper taffeta. The silk fibers are both dull and shiny creating an interesting way of reflecting light. Needless to say I spent a long time in Photoshop trying to convey all of the above qualities so they are visually apparent on the texture of the dress. I hope you like it.
