I am still learning how to use Marvelous Designer... I will be using this page as a journal of my progress.

Started with the basic shape. Not too many details yet

Spent the last few hours watching tutorials. Redid the skirt and got a nice pleated effect now, but it seems like to much detail for TF, so I don't know if I'm going to keep it. Started modeling a short jacket, still missing lots of detail, though I'm okay with it's basic shape at this point. Not sure what I'm going to do with the pyros default collar sticking out there, I'm thinking about having big pearls or something on the final model, though that's probably going to be too huge to look good.

Redid the skirt again, Really liking how it turned out this time. Much less pleated bits makes it look more TF appropriate, and the flowing effect is groovy. Fixed up the jacket and added some details. Threw on the grenade strap for good measure... Need sleep now, be back soon!

Comparison shot of LOD0 and high poly model for bump map. Note that this isn't the texture, just flat colors.
