My progress has been good thus far with trying to learn my way around Blender and Marvelous Designer for creating clothes for Second Life. It has been an interesting journey to try to understand how Blender works and where everything is compared to Maya. I would have to say that Maya at first was really tough to get around back when I took classes this was around 7 years ago in College. So any 3D program that you’re trying to learn is going to take a lot of patience as well as trial and error. I made a small video to show you what my first dress came out to look like after tweaking it for hours. I will post all the links to where you can get Blender, which is a free 3D program, Marvelous Designer, and of course my Instagram account if you would like to follow my progress on there. After hours of looking for tutorials on YouTube I found Manwa Pastorelli videos to be the best source and they really help to show you step by step on how to go about creating clothes for Second Life. Once I get more comfortable with Marvelous Designer, I will tackle trying to do the same process in Maya to compare it to Blender and see which program I like the best. I wish I could get MayaStar add-on for Maya to see how it works, but right now I have to save my money for personal reasons. I hope the links to the tutorials will help someone out just like they helped me, let me know what you think about Blender and if you have any recommendations on creating clothes for Second Life.
