...actually Xurge does a pretty decent job with his futuristic battle wear as It leaves little to nothing exposed. 

Never understood the rationale of running into a high threat situation with one’s midsection unprotected. A shot to the gut, especially from a modern assault weapon, is one of the worst as it can do a heck of a lot of internal damage and can often be fatal.

There’s no point in applying logic to softcore pinup gear.  It just encourages bad writers to come up with migraine-inducing excuses for it.  Speaking as a woman, I’m not at all offended by “I like to look at navels and cleavage, therefore I rendered it that way” as compared to “she does it voluntarily as a distraction tactic,” or “any woman who isn’t ashamed of her body should dress this way,”  or worse, “It’s part of her alien/mystical culture that I just made up two seconds ago.”


Now, if one claims to be writing a narrative, and a character is an FBI agent, colonial marine, surgeon, etc., I expect that character to dress reasonably for their job.  If they don’t, and it’s not set in a parody porniverse or something where that’s normal garb for everyone of both sexes, I can have no respect for that content.

This is one of the most awesome things on the internet:  http://www.jimchines.com/2012/01/striking-a-pose/  - Fantasy author Jim Hines recreating women’s poses from fantasy book covers, using himself as the model.

I can’t do action poses to save my life, so far anyway - I could do “Tomboy Inertia” featuring D&D-playing, Lego-building, Book reading, and Pizza-ordering, but I suspect that’s not what you have in mind smile  - This is what comes of using myself as my model, LOL

WHAT????? You cannot be serious!  Sexy FBI agents should never wear more than see-through undies, if that!

This is true; you can try to apply it but nothing sticks to that shiny fabric.

I love that series.

Yeah, I know the Tomboy inertia poses well. smile

What I’d love to see (from anyone who cares to try) are sports poses for both female and male.  And not just Active, middle of the game poses, but sideline poses too (Cheering a play, protesting a call, bored on the bench, Lying down to cool down, reacting to something going wrong…)  Come to think of it, a whole package could probably be made from sideline/spectator poses.

And in the spirit of fairness, I’d love just as much to see a Men’s Gymnastics pose set.  (I know that’s my favorite event to watch at the Olympics… cool grin)

You guys are a riot.  I’m going to steal the pose market out from under Canary3D with my new pose pack, “The Women of 3d Graphics.”  It features poses of women sitting at computers, taking naps, on the floor working on the tower case, trying to push away persistent cats, getting snacks from the fridge, and flailing madly about as they play computer games.


No, I totally agree, wancow!  Seriously!  For both sexes.

Y’know, Wreck it Ralph did a pretty good job of making Calhoun sexy but still had her wearing believable gear for a space marine sergeant.  yes, it was different than the guy’s armor, but that can be as easily explained by Calhoun being a significant character in the game.  So it is possible to find a nice medium. smile

I loved Calhoun. grin  Just that entire movie was pure glee.  I’m buying it when the dvd is out.

...which is why I tend purchase most my combat wear content from sites like Xurge’s rather than here. smile

I do a wide variety of poses for both males and females as well as animals. I pose men as men and women as women. Most poses can be “genderized” from one to another with some tweaking and a little skill. Many of my pose sets are historical and/or ones that fit various vehicles, which requires technical accuracy and conformity.

I have done some body language and expressive poses, like the Expressive Action/Drama, Wall Flower poses and Holding On Drama. Those are all designed as gender specific. They sell well enuf, but it is an overdone niche. I prefer to do action and “story-telling” sets.

I’ve done a few ordinary, everyday pose sets but they don’t seem as popular as the action and expressive stuff. I am surprised at seeing the interest expressed here in that area.

Browse my store, link below, to see what I am talking about. If anyone has specific types of poses they’d like to see and have, let us DAZ posers know.

I do like your poses but since they tend to be based around a specific set or theme, I don’t buy them as often.  (That and at this point, I’m only buying Genesis Poses, unless they’re stupidly cheap)  But yes, your female poses don’t model and preen.  They’re doing stuff.  Which is great.

Also, I do a webcomic.  It has action, to be sure, but it also has the main characters sitting around a room talking over a beer, hauling band gear, lots of call for rock musician poses, and just walking down the street.  And yes, rummaging through the fridge.  And I like to do some “quiet drama” scenes even when I’m doing things not for the comic.

Are there poses for all of these out there?  Yes (well, maybe except for the hauling band gear, and there never seem to be enough actual rock guitar poses that aren’t pinup based for my needs.  I need poses suitable for Joan Jett or Nancy Wilson or Lita Ford, not the hottie on the Great White album cover.).  But there’s a certain… I can’t quite decide on the word… stereotypical femininity about a lot of the poses that are available for V4 and V5.  The Tres Jolie poses by Val3dArt are a great example.  Wonderful poses, but best for doing pictures of “girly” girls doing “girly” things.  And I’m sure a lot of women do stand and point and gesture that way, but they don’t feel right when applied to some of my characters, which is why I’m looking for something specifically more tomboy-ish.

As I said in my first post, I can and usually do adapt male poses for my use, but when I’m putting together a scene (and this is why I get frustrated with any pose that resets the figure to the center of the scene, but that’s another rant) I’ll set the character in question where I want them in the scene, and then try out a bunch of poses until I find the one that looks closest to right.  And since male poses don’t look quite right on female figures, it takes longer to settle on the “right” pose, since I’ll reject a bunch of poses that could work and then have to come back to them when I realize that yes, that is the best option I have.  So having pre-existing tomboy poses would be more efficient.

Male stuff does not sell well.  It never has compared to the stuff for girls.

One little thing that bugs me, Girly pose sets where all poses have feet confgured for high heels by default.
Slightly irritating and rather uncessary since most High heel shoes come with a feet pose we can Inject on top of another pose if needed.
And last time I checked, MOST of the Genesis Shoes on sale are actually flat!
