What do you have your artistic sights set on this go around?

(*Crosses fingers and hopes for “Golden Age for Genesis”*)

 

That would be an instant buy for me as well; as it is, I *almost* buy the M4 version every week or so, but hold off in hopes of a Genesis version.

Here’s a quickie Chibi-Boy/Chibi-GIrl 60s JLA (the original seven) done toon-style (also posted in the old forums, but not to this thread). One of these days I’ll get around to finishing their costumes and doing an actual action shot with them… one of these days… wink

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*)

Genesis is head & shoulders above “Genesis 2” (or better known as BF2/BM2) and is the FAR superior figure. Why? It doesn’t suffer from the UN-necessary gender split

Hey Joe - you did an amazing Wonder Woman using a custom transparency map for the supersuit - is there any way we can beg that from you? Not the other stuff, just the transparency map… I stink at making those and want to pick yours apart to see how you did it.

I’ve not done a Wonder Woman (other than with Tyler or McG’s stuff), and I tend to avoid the Supersuit unless I need a daz product to use in daz promo renders.  Is there another Joe?

I think he’s confusing you with DAZ_Rand.

Wow, congrats, Joe! smile

Here’s John Henry Irons AKA Steel. A guy we never really see in Renders these days. Thanks to ChaomancerOmega for letting me use his S Shield symbol.

WOW! NICE one, Knight!

Thanks! smile

Yup, I’m pretty much using Genesis whenever possible. With Smays’ Chibis/Nata/Hyde and 3DUniverse’s Jason/Jasmine/Amy/etc. and the growing multitude of monsters, aliens and fantasy/SciFi characters available, it makes things a whole lot easier and more fun.

I did those Chip and Cookie Legionnaires a while back (the first 17 are in the attached pict, I think I got up to 24 before I ran out of hoiday time), but since the Genesis toons started appearing, C+C are pretty much benched these days.

Oops, sorry for not giving credits where credits are due. The figures are Genesis with smay’s Chibi-Boy and Chibi-Girl (with scaling), the main outfits are the GSuit using a few of atrion666’s superhero logos, Wonder Woman’s outfit is Terrymcg’s V4 Cosplay, Supe’s belt and trunks are from Vacasoft (Vadlor, PCGaijin and Drusila) while his boots are from uzilite’s M4 Superman, GL’s ring is from Gonzalez Graphics (Marco Antonio) and his mask is from Muskateer Graphics, Flash’s wings are from Aztecmarco, and the rest are just DAZ stuff.

I can’t gush enough about the freedom Genesis is giving me; for example, I cobbled chibi-GL together in about 15 minutes, then dialed out Chibi and dialed in Jason, changed the textures and bang, instant 60s-styled GL. I could change to a more realistic GL in a matter of minutes. Before Genesis, that wasn’t possible, not without the work of converting the clothing and such. These were done before the release of Supersuit/Belt/Boots/Masks, so I’ll probably redo them eventually using those.

I don’t do this for anything other than fun, but time is always very limited, and with Genesis taking so much of what used to be “work” out of the equation, I’m having way more fun with the little bits of time I can squeeze out for playing.

Let’s just hope we can all sweet talk Joequick into making Golden Age for Genesis (Along with the banded metallic armor and a few other goodies. *smile*)

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.

No hero love for Genesis? You do some of the best hero stuff hands down and I would love to see it for Genesis. What would it take to convince you? Do I have to bake pie? I’ll DO it, you know. I’m not above baked good bribery.

For the person looking for thew WonderWoman outfit earlier, I thin the best one I have seen is for V4 at SharCG by TerryMcG

TerryMcG’s Cosplay page on ShareCG

Hope this helps. He has more than just Wonder Woman too but tends to lean exclusively towards women heroes.

I just don’t want to make all of those cowl morphs again.  Doing something the first time is fun, the second time is a chore.

I haven’t gone through the whole thread, but I’ll bet no one so far has made a good VENOM. wink (Referring to Spider-Man’s nemesis, of course.)

[EDIT: Okay, my mistake, just found that there’s one at page 30. hmmm)]
