Low Poly Shoes

Postby MargaretToigo » Tue Oct 23, 2018 12:56 am

Lately, I've been making shoes. It's just what comes to me, I don't know why. I guess it's all part of that whole "artistic process" thing.

Now, I started a thread on how shoes are hard to get to universally fit most humans....


And as I was thinking about the subject, I remembered reading something somewhere -- most likely here -- about how low-poly clothing meshes can often provide a more universal fit than medium to high poly meshes. Of course, this is not always the case -- at least in my experience.

So, I set about making a pair of very low poly shoes with 556 vertices, 278 per shoe. And they fit a wide range of humans, though they are best on mostly female humans above age four.


But the thing about low poly is that you need a subdivision surface of a least two (three or four is even better) and creasing on key edge loops.

Since MakeClothes does not store creasing information, this must be done manually in Blender. Here are a few pictures to show which edge loops need creasing and how much.

Edge loops in pink mean crease 1.0

Ignore the red lines as those are seams for UV unwrapping (MakeClothes doesn't store seams, either)

Edge loops in dark red mean crease 0.5
