BIG congrats, Joe. I did the wedding and getting a house and moving shuffle a couple of years ago and haven’t QUITE recovered since. *chuckle* (For months, I was still finding odd bits of things placed where my inlaws thought they would logically go but .... yeah…. no. *laugh*)
What do you have your artistic sights set on this go around?
I haven’t hung my dry erase board back up again yet. But this is what was on it before the move. No promise that any of these will actually get done.
-Poison Darts -> The frog that was my first Genesis project. There are some head seam issues that need to be addressed, but other than that I think that project was about good to go. It’s just over a year old, so when I look at it and the Turtles, there’s a massive quality difference.
-Alien Force Genesis -> The headmorphs from the K4 version with a new super-deformed body morph. A new heroic bodysuit. And a slightly more exaggerated version of Overbrain with his outfit. I had slowed on this one because I couldn’t duplicate the look of the procedural skin I’d been using in Poser in Studio. But with the Turtle project, I think I got to the point where I could make a good universal mapped creature skin texture that would look good with the different aliens.
-America’s Best Comics -> Expansion pack for Golden Age using some public domain characters. Practically done, just need to finish up a Shader pack for studio.
-V4 Sidekicks -> Flame Girl and Cat Girl costume elements for V4 to go along with the ABC expansion. Not started, but these would basically just be a manual conversion of the M4 elements, so they wouldn’t take long.
-Street LVL M4 -> A collection of different things from that Batman streak that I’d been on. The elements that aren’t explicitly derivative of established IP. The Frank Miller Cape/Cowl combo would go freebie, as would the robin badge and red robin chest straps and emblem.
-Street LVL V4 -> The zippered bodysuit, ribbed bodysuit, converse ish boots, military surplus boots, a tattered cape, a cowl neck cape, a basic cape. A couple kinds of gloves. A couple kinds of belts.
-M4 SciFi casual -> That coat that’s been sitting on my hard drive for just about a year, along with a bodysuit and some funky boots.
-Turtle Power -> This was a learning exercise, my texturing skills grew greatly, but I got hung up on the shell. Hal had to help me out with it. I’m also hung up on tying the bandana and how to rig it. I still don’t really know how to rig and just rely on quick conform and auto group to do it for me.
-Damian -> A teen morph, texture, and scaling preset for M4
-M4 Gods of Stone and Pain -> You might recognize them if you saw them.
Since the move I’ve started working on the shark dude, a toon duck, and a shabby suit for the toon duck.
