Do you remember 2009 American epic science fiction film “Avatar”? The film is set in the mid-22nd century, when humans are mining a precious mineral called unobtanium on Pandora, a lush habitable moon of a gas giant in the Alpha Centauri star system. The expansion of the mining colony threatens the continued existence of a local tribe of Na'vi – a humanoid species indigenous to Pandora.
After that, Avatar clothing gets developed. We know Cosplay is the art of imitating a character from an Anime, Manga, video game or other form of visual media. Though cosplay costumes started in Japan, they quickly became more popular for the English-speakers, where it was re-gifted back to Japanese otaku. There are now many cosplay communities and events everywhere.
Included in zentai suits, Avatar clothing is also welcomed by many people. The avatar clothing templates consist of 4 important elements: outlines indicating the general shape of the avatar, color-coded seam lines, minimum bleed area, alpha channel. People of the World of Avatar wear many different types of clothing and other accessories depending on the nation from which they hail and their social status.
If you are intrested in creating Avatar Clothing , here are some tips. When creating a material or color for a clothing item, always make sure the material or color extends beyond the edge of the colored outlines. The "Minimum Bleed Area" is indicated on the template for this purpose. Try to match material or color across seams. Connecting seams are indicated by corresponding colors, and you can use PhotoShop's "rubber stamp" tool to easily accomplish this.
If you want a stripe or seam to be visible (e.g. the seam down the side of a pair of pants), put the seams on only the "front" portion of the texture. Making a stripe or seam directly on top of the seam indication line may create undesirable effects. When making PVC gown run down the center of a shirt, place the buttons on the center line to avoid distortion. When creating a short-sleeve shirt, make the sleeves longer than you need, then adjust the sleeve length value in the Customize Avatar dialog to get the look you want.
Select the area of neck/chest that you expect to see the avatar's skin through. While the selection is active, click on the "channels" tab and highlight the Alpha Channel. Select the brush tool and paint the selected area black (areas of black in the alpha channel are transparent, whereas areas of white are opaque).
