Software used:

Creating text for our style in 3D

Create your text in 3D, colour the polygons and light the scene (Fig33). Export as a Targa file so that an alpha layer is automatically created. This is for easy masking/selection for pasting into your texture map.

I will choose one later.

Back to his shorts

One of the tricks with masking (and there are several) is to invert a selection. This time I am shading the outside of the mask with a darker shade.

Again I have motion blurred it and drawn nowhither selection to mimic seam tension.

Shade with a large airbrush size accordingly.

I have wind blurred it and reduced the opacity of the layer so that the folds are subtle suggestions rather than hard drawn lines.

Socks

Keeping our lines and tones consistent, clinical yet soft and warm is my aim here. So I have drawn the lines on our sock using stroked lines.

With the use of the Layer style blending options, I have embossed and blurred our lines. There are other screen and normal layers for the other tones.

So far.
