It's Alive! Anime Girl Kristin now available for Public Beta and download...
I've posted a Figure Update in this thread to correct an oversight on my part... my apologies everyone... New downloaders won't be affected by the issue I've fixed but those who've already downloaded my Anime Girl should grab the new file from the link in my post on page 2 of this thread...
My Anime Girl Kristin is based upon my own sketches and art works and has been influenced by many sources. Amongst my biggest influences are Anime Artists such as Masamune Shirow, and anime movies like Macross, Orguss, Record of Lodoss War, plus TV shows such as Visions of Escaflowne (amongst others too numerous to mention here). I've been a fan and collector of anime for over 20 years and taught myself how to draw in several styles which over time developed into my very own personal style of anime art.
This figure has been created in 3d from 2 dimensional templates of my own sketches and over the last year I've worked hard on refining both the mesh and the joint rigs. Preliminary private beta testing allowed me to fix many deficiencies in the mesh and to refine the rigging of the skeleton and joints to provide for the best possible set-up that I am currently capable of making. I'd like to take a moment to thank the many, many people in the Daz Community Forums at Daz3d for the advice, suggestions, and help that has allowed me to get this figure to the point that it is now... Thank-you one and all for your valuable help!
How-ever, my own meager skills can only take this figure so far and I've reached the limit of what I'm currently able to do with her on my own, so I'm opening this figure up to the community as is, in hopes that the community will be interested in continuing the work I've begun. To that end I am leaving this figure a little more open in terms of usage than some of my previous projects. The Base Figure and basic clothing will be free, and I will also be creating some specific items and add-ons for sale to tie in with my other product lines that will be for sale at low cost to help support further development of the figure and potentially a male companion for her...
Please be aware that this figure is as complete as I can make it with my current level of skill and that it is by no means perfect. It is being provided "as-is" as a Public Beta-Trial for further development and expansion.
If you do work with this figure please feel free to contact me so that I can see your works, and if you wish to contribute to the development of this figure please let me know... I'm more than happy to accept any help I can get and to showcase any extras or add-ons that you make. Follow continued development and discuss this figure in my WIP Thread here http://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/3237/ , but please be considerate and respectfull of my hard work... :)
