Substance & Marvelous Designer team up for the Apparel Creation Contest: David & Diana

Diana and David have been hanging around without clothes for a few centuries now. Something must be done! Put your skills to the test in this contest by using Substance and Marvelous Designer to create clothing for the two classical divinities!

Would David look stunning in a draped, shimmering toga? Or can you see him in beachwear? Should Diana modernize her style or wear something more traditional?

RULES



There are six simple rules for participating in the contest:

* All texturing must be done with the Substance suite. This software includes Substance Designer, Substance Painter, Substance B2M and Substance Source.
* All clothes must be created in Marvelous Designer except accessories such as bracelets, glasses, etc. (for example).
* Participants can choose to use the David or Diana statue model.
* You may not use the 2 characters in the same scene.
* You may not use registered brand trademarks or logos on clothes or statues.
* You may not change the meshes of provided models in any way. Diana's bow and arrow are considered accessories and may be removed.

You are encouraged to post your work in progress on our forum under the category Contest/Diana and David: Substance + Marvelous Designer Apparel Creation with the name “Diana and David: nameOfTheArtist entry”, but this is not required.
