I usually work with Marvelous Designer, making garments, but have been exploring ZBrush for making the decorations for them. I have come up with a number of Inssert Mesh brushes that recreate embroidery stitches. They are probably (quite!) crude and could stand touching up by an expert, but (IMHO) for a beginner, they look just like the real things. Meant for high poly detail work, since I usually do still images and am not concerned about poly count, they could probably be baked down for low-poly work, I suppose.
(I should mention that the Satin Stitch is based on an idea by dmitry7365 in his thread… it helped me get the look I wanted…my original ‘Satin Stitch’ looked more like a ribbon, as I couldn’t figure out how to taper the ends, until I studied hos posting with screenshots of his work.)
(The red circles in the first piccie shows where the links break… I haven’t figured out how to fix that, except to not do as sharp turns as I would like.)
