I finally decided to buckle down and update my 3D Superman to Genesis, if for no other reason than to keep classic Superman alive in the face of recent changes to t he character and his mythos.  As I predicted, there were several challenges, mostly due to there being no DSON files for the G-Suit (seriously, what’s up with that, Daz?).  I ended up cobbling together a passable suit with the Journeyer Scout pants, the Preppy shirt, and the Town & Country belt.  The belt and cape (from Ice-Boy)  also took quite a bit of custom morphing.  This is only the second render, and from a geometry standpoint, everything seems to work relatively well, though I’m not sure I like the textures just yet.  They might seem a little…blah.  What do you think?

The suit design basically undoes everything I think is wrong with Routh’s and Cavil’s.  I thought Routh’s codpiece and belt rode too low on his hips, and of course Cavil has none at all.  Most importantly, the only true S-emblem is displayed across my model’s chest.  Seriously, why do they feel the need to keep distorting an already iconic symbol?  I thought Routh’s was bad enough, but one look at Cavil’s, and I was ready to run screaming back to Routh, LOL!  Ranting aside, I do plan to see “Man of Steel,” just to give it a fair chance.

I like all 3 Ideas, I’ll try them all. Thank you for the ideas, and I hope when finished you find them useful.

So, this is what I’m working on:
Bat computer
Wrist communicator
Superman Key
Rocket Club house

I’ll post progress as I go and then post props on sharecg.com

As I predicted, there were several challenges, mostly due to there being no DSON files for the G-Suit (seriously, what’s up with that, Daz?).

1) Resave as a .duf
2) Generate Poser companion files (select the item you need companion files for and then right click on the content library tab to bring up the menu shown in the picture).

Edit: The images below are in reverse order

A couple test renders of my old Apollo Maximus Sinestro in Daz Studio and a Guardian Morph for Genesis (I hope to do a render of Sinestro surrounded by a bunch of dead guardians).

Joe, do you plan to make the Guardian available? I’d love to have that.

Made a new Sinestro corps outfit for Apollo, still needs a new belt and that armband. For comparison, I’m also attaching an old render of my original Apollo Sinestro from several years back (the model sheet looking one is a Poser render from 2010)

Super job on your Sinestro suit!! any Lantern pict awesome, I love the yellow and black eyes! Best use of apollo too, he definitely is an under used figure. cant wait to see the final image with the dead guardians.
