Here's the last update for The Meet MAT 3 Contest! I worked on this using Substance 3D Painter, Substance 3D Stager, and a bit of Photoshop. Really pleased with the final result and grateful for the chance to be part of this contest. I picked up a ton about Substance Painter during this journey, making it an amazing experience overall. 

I hope you find pleasure in checking out my work! Feel free to explore the entire post to uncover the details of my creative process!

Thank you!!!

I decided to switch up my character's color tone, opting for a significant change to inject some variety. The idea struck me to introduce a more vibrant palette, introducing a spectrum of hues to liven things up. Additionally, I took the opportunity to enhance the details on the base, weaving in a tapestry of intricate elements. It all just felt like the natural next step in giving my creation a fresh, dynamic look, embracing the creative freedom to infuse a burst of color and richness into its aesthetic.

I casually worked on enhancing my character model by throwing in some subtle details. Tweaked the clothing with a different cut and added a playful strawberries pattern. Oh, and let's not forget the bonnet – made sure it looked absolutely fabulous. It's all about those small adjustments to give the whole thing that extra oomph, you know?

So, here's the render of my model for now. Will try to do more work on the lighting ,to make it look way better!

Had a tough time figuring out what to add to the base, but I settled on flowers and strawberries. Wanted to keep it in sync with the character's dress to keep things consistent and cohesive.

Spruced up my character's eyes, pumped up the colors, and made those outlines pop. Shoutout to Nivord and Saleh Darakhshan for their cool brush kits – seriously amazing stuff!

Now, I'm diving into the nitty-gritty details like wrinkles in the clothes and other material specifics. Hit a bit of a snag, but I'll keep you posted if there's any cool progress!

I used curve tools to create path for lace to make it look neat. It helps me save a lot of time and make the line more smooth. And use lace materials to enrich it.

I use brush to draw the stitch of the outfit and the buttons. Also adding a little bit displacement on it to make it look less plain.

I create displacement on the bottom of the character but it didn't go well. Ater doing a few research, I solved it by adding blur intentsity and adjust the levels.

These are the references photos for my design of the dress and cardigan. I keep changing my mind while designing it as lolita dress have different style such as goth, sweet, punk... After thinking a lot, I settled on a sweet style. The main elements of the dress are flowers, strawberries, and ribbons. It was a bit tricky deciding, but I'm happy with my choice!

I used Photoshop to design the pattern of the lolita dress, something I always wanted to try. I'm really happy with how it turned out!

Some distortion of the pattern occur when I tried to put it on the character, it looks like a chili pepper and I don't like how it shows so I tried different  UV projection method one by one to see how it goes.

Lastly, tri-planer projection turns to bring the best reslt.

It's my first shot at character texturing. Usually, I stick to making environments and props, so this is kinda new and exciting. 

My character vibes with Lolita dresses and dolls—two things I'm totally into. Lolita style isn't mainstream, so I thought, why not spread the love? I am also a doll collector and cotton ones are my absolute faves. You can switch up their outfits and brush their hair, just like dealing with little baby dolls. Still figuring out the exact style, so I did some rough draft in Substance Painter, checking out how the displacement map plays out( I never use it before). I am excited to see how it will go.

I started off things off by adding displacement to my model because I wanted to see how it would look. Used it to craft the bonnet and the hair for my character. Tested out both long hair and hair buns, but the buns won me over—they just looked way cuter.

The heart of a cotton doll is its adorable face! They can express all sorts of feelings like napping, being angry, or smiling, but the cuteness is always there. I went with a laughing face for my character to give off a super fresh and cheerful vibe, like a daisy in full bloom.
