Ok after my initial disappointment with the complete release of Hiro 5 I saw the price go down to like 16 dollars for the base and figured I would go ahead and get it.

I downloaded, installed and just started spinning some dials in it in Studio 4.5 just to see what I can get out of him. After two or three days spent playing around with it and my plethora of other morphs I am still not happy with my end result of my first attempt. I just can’t get a nice masculine older looking character. If I dial too many of the other Genesis morphs I lose Hiro Almost completely or it just distorts completely. 

Here is my First attempt first render feel free to post your images as well

I don’t think Hiro is intended for masculine, older characters. I rarely do anime but I did bought him anyway knowing that he would see far less use than M5 for me.

I know its not really the intended purpose for Hiro 5 but he is just a base morph for Genesis so one should just be able to do more with him

He looks very nice. Definitely more masculine than Hiro5 base, but not that much older, I am afraid. On the other hand, many characters in anime look rather young, even those who are supposed to be in their thirties.

I think your character looks very nice, John. I’ve not played with H5 much. This is a render I did when creating poses.smile

Hey Beth, Thanks

Have you started on any morphs for Genesis?

I added a third image to the top using a different hair set

I am going to see if my friend Ali can wip up a few more anime inspired hair sets

I have a feeling I posted this before, but I can’t find it (and as my grandma used to say, I have a brain like a sieve). Anyway, this is the Takeo character with Pure Hair Space and parts of the Dragon Rage outfit.

Although I love anime (and perhaps because I love anime—anime and 3D aren’t really compatible for me) I’m not particularly tempted by the more cartoony aspects of Hiro, but I like the range this figure adds for “semi-realistic” fantasy characters.

I think this hits the issue directly. Certain types of characters are best suited for a particular type of conceptual use. They are good for that intended use but brought too far outside it they ‘get lost.’ The concept of Genesis allowing morphs to work together don’t really change this as it’s not a physical thing but a stylistic issue.

Nice render btw Hiro, even if you did grab my name ;p

(That last part was also meant as a compliment btw.)

Just because I may have a strong opinion doesn’t make it any more (or less) correct than any other, just that I feel passionately a particular way at that moment.

This is Hiro 5 using Hitoro head morphs. Maybe I should try a few more.

Looks very nice, a dark and intense character, don’t have H5 yet, bought V5 and M5 and saw them given away a few short months later, so going to hang on a bit wink

Thanks, Ian. It’s all from the Hiro 5 pro bundle, and the muscles are in the morph of Takeo I think I may have tweaked the face a little, but it’s more or less out of the box.
