Time for Learning...
I'm going to start the process of taking *Just BECAUSE* to a whole new level, and that is by having my own components along with my own clothing textures. As you already know, all of my clothing textures are hand painted. They are completely my own, and I'm very proud of that fact. I don't use pre-made clothing as templates and alter someone else's clothing. Because of this I don't have to worry about infringing on copyright on another creator's creations and I can truly call them my own designs. But now I want to be able to say the same for the components I use along with my clothing. I have been buying other creator's scrulpted prim maps (which by the way are awesome and I truly appreciate the creator's art!), but now I want all of my attached sculpted prims to be my own design as well.
I have been wanting to learn how to make my own sculpted prims for a long time now. I've had Blender on my computer for several months and every day I think to myself that I need to take some time to learn how to use it, but I always have so many other things needing to be done. However, I'm not going to put it off any longer. I'm putting myself in "school" and I'm going to learn how to use this program!
I don't know how long this will take me to learn, but I imagine it will take me some time. I've got a whole student lesson plan downloaded with about 85 videos and it's going to take some time going through those. I'm going to continue working on outfits while I learn, but the outfits will probably be slow in releasing because of this.
I tell you all of this so you don't worry that I'm not creating. I'm definitely still creating, but when a person takes a business to a whole new level it slows things down a bit, but only for a short time. The outcome will definitely be worth the wait though!
So wish me luck as I learn how to use this program! I'm nervous about the whole thing, but I'm also determined. Still..... I would appreciate people cheering me on to help me stick it out! I know I'm going to need the encouragement. :)
P.S. On a side note, my future sculpted prim designs will not be sold to the public. They are strictly for my own use. :)
