Nora - Diagonal Bob Hairstyle

Hello everyone! I was working really hard on this new hair mesh for a while, after some hard graft I finally achieved a cute looking diagonal bob hairstyle! You may have noticed I haven't been making hairs for some time, that's because I've been busy practicing polygon hair modelling! I have produced a number of hair meshes that are yet to be released, so this bob hairstyle is just the first in a series of upcoming hairstyles! I think it's the best hair mesh I've uploaded so far, I hope to get even better and show you some more complex hair models soon. I recorded myself modelling this hairstyle for a tutorial which went down the drain because I didn't save half the video T_T So I started a new film, I am currently recording a new tutorial on hair modelling with a different upcoming hairstyle. Be on the look out for that soon, it will be informative for both beginners and advanced creators. Diagonal bob hairstyles were super popular when I was in secondary school a couple years ago, I think they would make a great addition to the sims 3. It's a low poly mesh of around 7000 Polygons for high level of detail and of course reduced LODs. I used Pooklet's hair textures as a base for the diffuse map. There are two versions, the adjustable shine control and the EA highlight control system (the second to last pic shows EA highlights), you can have both versions in your game if you like. I recommend the EA highlights for this hair, just looks nicer with the vertical highlights, gives it a sleek look. Enjoy and thank you for all the support!

Wow these are really beautiful. You are very talented. I have a question about one of your models. The redhead in the first picture is wearing a greenish-blueish top. Where did you get that lovely top? I used to have it, and I think it was a store item, but I can't find it in the store anymore. Was it a store item? Do you know what it was called? Thanks :)

Thanks anon ^.^ glad you like it!

That's correct, I believe it is a store item, but I took a look just now and it's like it disappeared O_O it's not there.

Does anyone else happen to know?
