In this video I'm showing how to create a realistic turtleneck sweater for a SecondLife avatar. Note that the video is timelapsed; what you're seeing here took four hours, not a few minutes!

I'm using (in order):
- Blender to create the turtleneck, upper- and lower arm sculpties and to bake the shadow maps for the aforementioned sculpties;
- DeepPaint3D to texture the sweater with reference photos by http://www.3d.sk/?a_aid=4df84cbec866f - this is the 'Anastazie' photo reference;
-Adobe Photoshop CS4 extended to liquify and resize the reference photos so they will actually "fit" the mesh of the avatar (while working with DeepPaint - I'm exporting / importing the projection paint layers to do that!); also, I'm using Photoshop to create the inital textures from the PSD files that were the resulting output from DeepPaint;
- PhotoImpact, to remove the alpha channel on the textures where it's not needed (yes I know; that can be done in Photoshop too; it's just a habit of mine to do it in PhotoImpact ;-) ) and also to create a 'protecitve' alpha channel for the sculpties;
- The SecondLife Phoenix Viewer for the final uploading and assembling of the Sweater in SecondLife.

The music in this video is by http://www.sonnyboo.com/ and I highly recommend that site if you're looking for royalty free music to use with the videos you create!

Hope you like the video; if you do, don't hesitate to share it by linking to it!
In case you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask here in the comments.

The finished turtleneck shirt, by the way, is available at my store in SL. Please read http://www.wunderlichs-garb.info/?p=563 for details :-)

Best wishes,
Naergi
