    I found some great hair called Frizzed head by AprilYSH. The colors don't look that great and I couldn't tell if the "purple" color is actually "black" but I think this product would work for this thread as well.

    Here's one more. Not sure if these are already in the thread.

    Be aware that Moda Cuts are dynamic hair for Carrara only -- though maybe Poser users can work with it. Not Studio, alas.

    I"m lusting after Swilly.... the textures look like they're multi-racial... I don't have the girl, so... hmmm... should I?

    New hair in Daz's holiday giveaways. Not putting it on the front page since I'm not sure how long it'll be available.

    Here's a render I did for fun. I wish there was more light on her face but I do like it. I hope you all do too.

    Having her face shadowed probably helps the mood. At the same time, you could potentially add a point light near her face.

    Hey my friend Zam,
    I hope you know I added this render just to get a chance to speak with you again. LOL. There are linear point lights at her breasts, and both her hands but I thought I could have raised the LPL closer to her face just to highlight the eyes. But I love the mood because she's getting ready to light someone's fire, pardon the pun.

    I just saw a commerical with sparks and flash and I'm going to do a new render to see if I can make that part of the render better.
    It is great to hear from you.

    Savannah for V4.2 on sale for half price today only, with the rest of Mariny's store

    EDIT: If you were thinking about trying it, her head and face don't come across with GenX.

    Anyone here use the Warm'NSoul lights yet? I'm assuming they would need to be in the Resources and Other section along with some other things.

    Used the Candace texture again. I was going to use Paul Hair on her, but something went wonky and since I did this for a contest I didn't have time to trouble-shoot -- having a hair-version of the texture included in the product was a really helpful fallback. DS4.5Pro render, prework & postwork in GIMP. Larger version in my deviantART gallery here.

    Posted this on my dA page yesterday, my character Smacky and her family. Elite Marie, Beautiful Black Hairstyles, lots and lots of DAZ stuff as usual. :)

    I need a little more practice with point lights. This picture is decent but not quite what I want since the lighting is off.

    I was experimenting with mixing Young Teen Julie with Candace for S5, and she turned out so well that I decided to make a couple of friends for her, too. All three use Julie at half-strength.

    Left: Julie and Candace for S5, Candace skin, Paul Hair, Kenzi Outfit
    Center: Julie, V5, Keira, Benjamin, and Ethnicity; Chablis skin, Wild Dreads hair, Mall Girl
    Right: Julie V5, Addison, and Ethnicity; Elite Marie skin; Pure Hair Bubblegum; Summer Dress

    The Wild Dreads hair is one of those products whose Poser mats don't load perfectly in DS. I had to apply the bump and displacement maps manually, and set appropriate levels for them. I think it turned out rather well. Paul Hair took forever to render, but I think the results are stunning. This render uses a lighting preset from Zahir's Palace (that's the set, also), and it's basic, non-Uber lights only I rendered it using UE2 also, but I think I prefer this one. No postwork.

    Edit: Oh, forgot to mention: SnowSultan, I think that's my favorite Smacky image yet! Great job! :)

    Bit of a resource post: thanks to the previous render somebody asked me what I thought of the detail of Adham's palms and feet, so I wound up test-rendering my five darkest Genesis skin-textures from DAZ: Raw VooDoo, Adham, TyreseM5, Candace, and Benjamin. These were done in DS4.5Pro using an array of distance lights, one on deep shadow map. I always used the default eyes and the plain texture (not the Human Skin Surface or the Sub-surface Scattering ones, although I did do the hair options on most) and this was just the textures, not the morphs. No postwork other than typing the names on.

    Thanks, that's actually quite useful. Wish more promos would show the palms and soles of characters.

    I am working on a new character render and I would like to know how old would you say this character is.

    He looks young adult-ish. I would give him between 18 - 21.

    less muscle.
    Keep him "toned" but more lean and lanky. and soften up the chiseled facial features.

    Anyone know of anything recently released in the past month or so that the list is missing? I keep thinking I'm forgetting something.

    Actually, I had the feeling I was missing something that's been out for a while but I could just be feeling off. Went ahead and added it along with a freebie I discovered. Nice image, BTW.
