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

so why do we have to buy a Freak 5 to get a she freak 5

isn’t that bizar

It’s the same thing that has prevented there being a David 5.


I don’t think DAZ is deliberately hating on buff ladies and pretty fellows (or they would have shut down our Michael Initiative thread), I think that it’s commercially safer for them to sell variants of the traditional gender appearances and let people make their own of the others.  I adore Genesis in that regard because of all the remix options (literally any morph can mix with any other morph), but those very options also drive this binary - as long as there are people complaining that Genesis is too androgynous, DAZ will have to prove them wrong by offering ever manlier men and girlier girls.


At this point tolerance is the best we can get.  And it’s more than is being offered at some other sites.

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!

And people use the poses in renders without flattening the feet.

I don’t think those are for shoes.  I think they are a preferred look in themselves, like the “ow my back” swayhipped thing.

I have to agree, I’d love to see some more gender-neutral poses.

...still a WIP (not happy about the lighting) but here’s Leela’s best friend Tracey.  Based off a Sadie/Genesis pose with modifications.

So far I think the Toon and Real kids poses work the best.

I’d rather have a blue sky above me than a blue screen in front of me.

I would like more poses celebrating friendship. Not the romantic kind, plenty of that already just people out having a good time, going to the pub, playing around, hanging out etc.
Scenes of characters you might see in a bar, leaning over, whispering to eachother, hearing gossip, buying stuff at market, that sort of stuff.

I tend to avoid the smexy poses simply because I have no use for them. I try to do actiony slice-of life scenes so posey pinup stuff doesn’t work so well for me.  Would love a guy sci-fi action pose set.  Also I would love a ‘rescue set.’ I tend to like placing genesis on ledges, running out of burning buildings etc.

The other thing I would love is some poses suitable for banners and such. Lots of people just want to do one character in a dramatic pose for a header, or a footer of a page, and that might be interesting..


I’ve found the freak to be really useful for buffing out most of my male and female characters. Although I don’t use him on full throttle, he adds some muscletone which is missing from the base models and morphs I own.

Thinking about “Warrior Wear,” I suppose when a band of enemies are shooting at you with AK-47’s, it doesn’t really matter if your tummy is bare.
