when saving a newly made design: Save a newly made design with your username in the saveboxstrip so that when other users make an outfit with it or use it, they know who created it and give the rightful credits to the designer
When designing black items: Don't use pure dark black, use a very dark gray. Kind of the shade of the bar on forums with font option icons etc.... Then shade with very dark black and white with opacity low. It will look more realistic as no item is 100% pure jet black.
If you want makeup/hair to look good re-size the image so its pretty large (1500+ pixels) at 300ppi so it looks extra clean. also it's easier for me to just redraw the whole eye than trying to paint over a now super pixely model eye if that makes sense.
giving out free designs can encourge more ppl to be actives so maybe item you dont like v. much or that didnt turn out the way you want instead of scrapping it give it away someone else could make a nice thing out of it
-Import the pattern as new layer.- -Set the layer to a low opacity (so body is seen under it).- -Create new layer.- -Draw outline of the item you're designing.- -Then erase on pattern fabric layer, the outside of the outline.- -Next delete the outline layer.- -Shade and add details.-
Isn't there a clipping mask-like feature?? Orrr can't you just create the outline with the polygonal lasso directly on the pattern layer? Asking 'cause I can't get either of the on-site programs to work.
It just looks like there's a tad too many steps there for some reason.
