Ask for people to do portraits of Athletes, Celebs, Politicos and other MEN in the news…

Get people used to making portraits of MEN (using… Genesis?)

And give a good prize for it…

Too many NVIATWAS renders huh?  I guess a men only render contest wouldn’t be a bad idea.  They can certainly swing a sword as well as Vicky can.  wink

I like the idea of portraying men. =-) the more the merrier, however, in general I tend to do only fictional guys. =-)

If you look back in my gallery on R.com, you’ll find an image called “LOVE HANDLES” that pokes fun at this issue… it was made PRE-Michael 5…

I wasn’t thinking RENDER contest, so much as custom Character contest… Caviat: the prettiest boy will be the biggest loser…

I like the idea of rendering male celebrities.  Don’t do Genesis, though.

Maybe a challenge instead of a contest?

Well..I think challenge or contest is doable.  However, eliminating Genesis is not so good, why limit anyone?  Not everyone has Genesis and not everyone has other models, then again, not everyone has the morph packages.  Providing links on how to create these morphs using various programs, such as Sculptris, Hexagon and Daz DForm would be good as well.  For those who want to offer their morphs, I believe there are some tuts on how to turn an obj alteration into a morph useable in Daz or Poser.

Instead, make the challenge to create a morph using any model a person has and whatever capabilities they have to generate said morph…thereby getting people use to making them, sorta teach/learn at the same time.

Have the contest as the best overall morph for each model from Genesis, M5, M4, M3 and lets not forget Hiro, David and Apollo.  I think all this would be wonderful considering there are very few available morphs for the Male Models and tons for the Female.

I beg to differ about women wielding swords, there are some pretty strong, agile women out in the world that could outdo any man…lol

I was not suggesting that Genesis be banned.  I was responding to the original poster’s suggestion that this should be a Genesis-only contest.  I was just saying that if that’s the case, I cannot participate.  Don’t do Genesis = I don’t do Genesis.  wink

There are still a considerable number of people who   “Don’t do Genesis”   Just look at the number of peopel who still ask about DS 3, and then there are those who still use other than the latest version of Poser.

Why the heck wouldn’t you want to do Genesis?

Since Genesis is free, and DAZ Studio 4.5 is free… it’s just about your refusal smile

The WHOLE point is to get great male characters using Genesis.

I don’t have M4 and I’m not going to invest in M4 and it’s morphs just so I can use M4 characters… smile

If you use M4, great!  More power to you.  But you guys have resources available to you up the wazoo!  Forgive me If I’m trying to get more resources available for Genesis…

It never ceases to astonish me that those who refuse to use Genesis have this amazing hatred for it… It’s getting a little old.

Please don’t start this argument up again.  See my post above your last two.  Some of us don’t do Genesis, Full Stop.

The point of the post is to generate interest in making male characters for Genesis… that was the whole point smile

I’m trying to learn to use hexagon to make morphs just so I can have better options in that way… there’s already a lot out there for the Genesis females.  I’d love to see people get more creative on the male side.  That’s all I was trying to get across.

OK.  I didn’t actually realise that from the first post. It should have been made a bit clearer really.  I really enjoy trying to dial M4 into different characters.
