Software used:
Photoshop, Maya, Mudbox, mental ray

The clothes and folds were sculpted using the standard Sculpt brush, using two different settings in the falloff with the steady stroke turned on (Fig.07 - 08). The additional pieces of the dress on the character's legs were created in Maya, mixing a couple of solutions. First I used nCloth simulation. I created a wide plane with enough divisions to get some nice folds and I used a copy of the posed character to work as a collider (Fig.09). Of course the result after a few simulations wasn't going to be exactly what I wanted in the final composition, so I picked a couple of "frames" of the deformed plane and did the final tweaking and extra folds inside Mudbox, using the Grab brush and the same brush I used for the rest of the clothing (Fig.10).

At this point I had blocked the final camera angle inside Maya, so it was easier for me to work with the shape of the cloth and to get a nice flow and composition with the rest of the objects in Mudbox. It was the same process for the hair, which I created in Maya by drawing some guide curves. This is very basic but again, I was trying to integrate them with good aesthetics into the scene. I extruded some cubes along the curves to get a solid base mesh to sculpt in Mudbox. The tool I used to sculpt the hair was a thin Wax brush with Steady Stroke turned on (Fig.11 - 13).
