If I need adjustments I use the Smooth Selection from Maya, which is a great and fast way to tweak dense geometry. The cloth was modeled by extracting the geometry from the body mesh and then extruding the border edges covering the torso to finish the piece (Fig.08).

The skirt was much easier and the folds were created using Bevel and Extrude (Fig.09).

To complete the scene, I modeled some props to match the theme of the image. These were some speakers, a set of headphones and some wires (Fig.10 - 12).

Hey thanks for the words guys! I used a layered shader at first but it made no big difference so I ended up using a standard maya shader applied just on the legs geometry. For the stockings I created a tiled pattern and a second UV set just for the legs to avoid visible seams and get the stretchy look in the wider areas of the legs.

Excellent tutorial thank you ! And I too am wondering how you made the stockings, did you used a layered-shader? Because I can't get any SSS to work with the layered shader. Anyway, great work, love the stylistic look!

That's a very pretty model and thanks for the tutorial. I have one question about the texture. How do you make the stockings and apply it to the leg?
