There hasn’t been what I consider a real Santa character, morph, and outfit for Santa since David 3 (which I really don’t use). I want a real Santa, with real Santa clothes, and now that the great Genesis-Poser metacrisis has ended, I think Genesis would be the perfect character for such a character, as well as Santa Elves and other related characters. I hope someone is working on this, because I would buy it in a heartbeat, and I expect others would as well.

Like TheWheelMan I would also love to see jolly St. Nick for Genesis! Especially if he had all the morphs and textures to make him look like the Santa Claus from all those early Coke Cola ads.  Here is one customer that would buy it in a heartbeat! smile

It’s not something I ever really thought about before, but I bet it would be fun to use in some renders. I’d buy it.

Yeah, you could get a whole morph package out of Santa, considering how many different versions of him there are, from thin to large. Throw in the beard and clothes, and we’d be off to a good start. Maybe a companion set with a sled & reindeer.

I made the suggestion in the product suggestion forum, and I think one creator said she had it on her radar. I would love a santa morph. Most of the content I’ve found looks a touch dated, and yeah, I can convert it, but I’d just love a genesis version, with clothing you can also use on the other genesis figures.

Yeah, I want some “modern day” textures and morphs since they are so much better now.

I’d buy a Saint Nicolas for Genesis with the robes and staff.  Not into Jolly Santa too much!

Oh yeah. A proper long robe is still MIA for Genesis. The Royal Elf tunic is very nice, and would work quite well as an under robe, but we still need something like the Mage robe. Either with the long sleeves, or simply wide enough sleeves to go over closer-fitting ones.

Given proper mat zones you could do the rest with shaders.

Actually, the beard is what is likely to be the real hitch. Mec4D’s beards for Genesis do a damn fine job, but even in combination they don’t add up to the kind of really *long* beard that you want for Father Christmas—or your stereotypical wizard.

I’m pretty sure that with GenX and some of the products already available, one could find a morph to build your own from. But a dedicated Santa morph would be welcome. Particularly since the character is so widely recognizable. (Enough so that one wonders whether it’s trademarked.)

Cath was going to do a Wizards robe set with a skin and beard set but she’s busy with other projects right now so not sure if she would tackle any thing like that with XMas coming up as fast as it is!

Ah.

I really like the Genesis Beard set, but it seems to be missing any textures, or shaders. Messing with the Diffuse, Ambient and Specular in the surfacs tab can sort of make it look like something other than black, but I wish there were a shader set available for fiber mesh hair.

I ported over one of Tempesta3d’s Senile Santas and he looks rather well with a different texture (I think I used Phoenix1966’s Horatio).  But it’s hard to make the Genesis beard look convincingly like white hair. It keeps coming out flat white that isn’t what’s needed at all.

turn on shadows I think that’s what Cath says helps add realism to the beards.  Do a soft shadow, not a ray traced shadow.

Haven’t tried to render them yet. Still fighting with them in the work window. No idea what I’ll get in a render.
