Hi everyone!

I am trying hard to create the ancient Roman world with POV-Ray. As far as 
it concerns the buildings, it is relatively easy. But organic things, such 
as humans, are difficult to be developed with POV-Ray since they have (not 
yet) a shape definition for humans in their scene language.

I am you, if someone among you all could create some humans in Poser, and 
have them wearing ancient clothings. I have Poser, but lack totally the 
knowledge how to create new, realistic clothings. If you want to getr ideas 
of ancient clothings (civil, professional, and military), please visit 
http://www.romanarmy.com and other informative websites.

I need:
- Children of both sexes
- Men of all ages
- Women of all ages

Costumes:
- Casual
- Celebrations (also religious)
- Military (navy and army)
- Servants
- Business

Thanks for your interest and support!

Sven

Hmm... I might, once in a while, if it comes close to one of my projects ( I 
have several that need rounding up and more in the pipeline). One of my 
projects is Bronze Age / Iron Age Europe. That might fit in.

However, I gently urge you to try to make clothes too :-)  All you need is 
Poser (of course), and Wings3D (for instance) for making the clothes. 
Basically, clothes are nothing more than a bunch of cylinders, truncated 
cones and planes. The Poser Cloth Room is then where you 'pose' the clothes 
on your figure. Start simple (a tunic, breeches). Don't try immediatly a 
toga: that would be one of the advanced projects and probably fairly 
difficult to get right. Armour, while seemingly simple, can possibly be 
rather difficult too.

Hi Thomas,

easy to say.   :-)

I never tried to make clothings, so I feel like the ox in front of the 
gate - means, just no idea, how to. I will try, nevertheless.

I would be happy if you, whenever you're ready, can assist me. I would like 
to see your ancient humans and their clothings. Lots of resources on the 
net. Thanks,

Sven

 Last year, starting in April, I generated a number of threads in p.b.i.: 
"Making clothes in Poser". They show the path I have followed to learn the 
ways around the Cloth Room and how to build simple clothes using Wings3D (or 
Silo, which I prefer; Janet uses Blender for instance). While not a tutorial 
as such, they show that things are not as difficult as they seem.

One of the "Takes" deals with Celtic-type clothes, which would be convenient 
for the Roman period I think. I can assist you overall of course and tell 
you what to do.

Thomas
