Default NCloth Balaclava

Hey guys,

So im got an animation of a Robber,...trouble is i want a balaclava that feels real and not 'painted' to his face.

I duped the head and deleted the faces where the eyes, mouth and nose are.

My question how do i successfully make this Ncloth so that it stays on his head, yet deforms correctly?


What parameters ? etc

For this I think you should just model in the creases, or sculpt them in zbrush, I think it would look very convincing with that and a good texture.

A balaclave wouldn't move or crease that much as a person moved so a simulation would be overkill I think, maybe you could make some blendshapes for some deformation, if he was going to talk for example?

cheers
