Hi:

I like manwolf http://www.daz3d.com/shop/the-man-wolf

However, I am having some difficulty with the tail and posing him.

Last night I tried to render him, on a lighthouse ledge , but everytime, I tried to apply one of his poses, he dropped down to be hidden by the lighthouse base. This neccessitated me moving him up everytime, I tried a different pose. Does anyone have suggestions on making this easier?

Second… The tail. It just looks wrong. It looks bristley , and I am having trouble posing it to look good.

Any suggestions from manwolf vets out there?

With the Posing I can Help. The Poses were saved in the default zero location. Every time you use one it moves the Figure back to that Zero location. If you are on a PC hold down the Ctrl key when you double click a pose, a menu will open. Turn off all the X, Y and Z Translations. That will leave the Figure where you had it in your Scene and only apply the Pose.

I hope this Helps.

Forgive me for not being helpful, but the the phrase “Any suggestions from manwolf vets out there?” had me giggling.  If there are any vets that deal in manwolves, they might prescribe some antibiotics :D

Sorry, going now before someone beats me!

Only Change the TRANSLATIONS settings. Not the others.
