The Maid of Might...a Potential Freebie W.I.P.

Well, I got a request and a demand for this...Supergirl for the Genesis Morphing Fantasy Dress (texture will also work on V4 and V3's Morphing Fantasy Dress since they share the same UV's. That's what DAZ says anyways).

Here's the first stage of the work using V4's Iconic Shape for Genesis. So far the S shield is giving me the most trouble. But I have an idea on how to possibly fix that.

Anyways, I'll keep working on this. In the meantime, if your interested in this potential freebie, please reply here. If there is enough demand for it, I'll share with the community at large.

    I'm very much interested in this...

    Which variant are you thinking of doing? I know of at least seven: http://th03.deviantart.net/fs25/PRE/i/2008/036/1/a/The_Rise_Of_Supergirl_by_Tompach.jpg

    Oh? We get to vote on this? Wow! Okay, just kidding. Even though I have yet to take the Genesis Plunge (lack of computing power) I do have the MFD and still think it would be useful. It looks really interesting so far.

    If we do get to vote, I've always been fond of the animated version, the white short top with the skirt. I'm sure I can find some proper gloves somewhere...

    Well, I see a blue background on the shield in Knight22179's image, so it's probably not the DCAU or Power Girl costume...

    IMO, I think the larger shield looks better than a small one.

    I'm not sure. Wouldn't using that logo be a copyright violation? Excuse me if you've already investigated that or have received permission to use it.

    Nope, I was the "demander" but he said he would only offer it for free if there was a greater demand...so I demanded it. *smile* But in a nice way... with cookies and flowery language. *smile*

    Unfortunately, the larger the S shield, the more distortion I get from the boobs.

    So long as it's freely given with no profit made, there's no harm in it. I'm not doing this for the money.

    No more so than if it were being stretched across real breasts.

    Have you seen the Supergirl movie? Those tights she wore didn't conform to her boobs perfectly, there was a visible gap between her boobs...a clothing gap that didn't stick closely to the skin. Same thing with any shirt a woman puts on. In the Poser world, that is nearly non-existant.

    Good idea to use the MFD

    hope you can get it out soon

    It may even encourage me to release my own V4 bodysuit version

    http://fav.me/d5hfc0s

    including the custom spandex morph if I can get it to inject reliably (I'll probably have to include the V4 body settings to match)

    Perhaps the Clothing Cleavage Modifier would remedy that?

    Is this idea dead in the water?, I'd love to have a Kara Zor-El costume for one of my characters

    Alright, I did finish the texture. I'll package it up and let you guys know when it's up.

    Technically, it would be trademark infringement. But there is a long tradition of fan use in lots of IP's, comics, movies, television, etc. The rule of thumb is that you can't profit from it. And the thing with trademarks is that you have to defend them. So, say they wanted to sue over a poser/daz texture like this, I think it would be very difficult because they have not done so in the past. But I am not a lawyer, so take with half a grain of salt.

    Oh trust me, I'm not going to profit from this. The texture will be for free. Lots of other users do the same thing for free. :)

    Probably too late for this but...

    If you get a 3d paint tool and use that to apply the texture, it will be pre-distorted and APPEAR undistorted in a straight-on front shot.

    I'm not posting because I think you should redo this texture, I'm presenting things you might be interested in using later.

    The two programs I know of for this are Z-Brush and Blacksmith 3d.

    Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, both programs are way too expensive for me to buy. All I have is Hexigon 2.5, Bryce 7, Blender and D/S. :)

    Decal Master or Texture Paint Helper from here used to be the affordable way, but yhey don't like modern windows.
