I did not see a thread about 3D Universe’s new Gal so I thought I would make one…lol. She is so cute….snatched her up and a couple of their other characters I been wanting for ages grin.

You can find her in the New Releases section or Here:

Yes, I agree!  She’s like Sadie’s California cousin.  smile

I love the Sam and Sadie characters, but don’t really care for Jason and Jasmin.  So, I wonder who is going to be Kimberly’s boyfriend?  wink

I can hardly wait to get home and install her along with the Stephanie 5 Pro bundle I bought too.  Poor Stephanie, sitting on my wishlist for so long…

She fell into my cart at lightspeed too!  Not only is she adorable, but I was very comfortable with her price!

She’s the first one I’ve really liked of that style. I imagine she will be very popular and show up in a lot of renders… hmm… she’s terrible! you don’t want her! ;p

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.

...that’s what I thought too.  Most of the other younger toon characters are uniquely different but she has a lot of Sadie in her.


Unfortunately will have to wait for another sale as finances are tight since I am out of work for the time being.

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

I decided it would be fun to quickly throw together an image of Jasmin, Amy, Jazlyn, and Kimbery using only 3DU stuff. I scaled down the first 3 to 90% (Kimberly shrinks to 80% scale and looked ridiculously smaller), and I thought everything was looking good until I actually rendered the image. Kimberly’s default texture setup (set using the character file that came with the product) has noticeable seams.

EDIT: As pointed out later in this thread, the issue is resolved by lowering the shading rate in the advanced render options. The new version of the image had the shading rate at 0.1

...she kind of looks like the Genesis version of Sadie 16.

It might somehow be an issue on my end, as I’ve also noticed this with Hiro 5, but all I know for certain is such seams are not wanted ^^;

That’s a pretty noticeable seam.  I’m still going to get her but I do hope that texture gets fixed fast.

The seam doesn’t appear on any of the promos. I’m wondering if there could be a setting somewhere causing the problem.

I’m wondering that myself. I’m not sure what to try to test that, however.

I love Genesis. Kimberly in FairyGown with Asobi textures. Background is Makena IIRC. I added Kimberly, the bough and bird and the flowers.

I’ll take a look at her tonight when I get home and see if I can find a seam problem.

Thanks.

Another cutie from 3DU.  A friend alerted me to her premier this morning (she is also seeing that seam problem),  Kim was in my basket 20 seconds later. To me she looks like a mix of Sadie and Skye (for whom I’ve been waiting/hoping for a genesis version ... though Kim might be “close enough”).

Some of those expressions ... she seems like she’s going to be a bit of a free-spirit with some attitude.  Always causing trouble, but getting out of it because she’s so cute?!

some quick and dirty renders attached since I didn’t have time to work with her much yet (damn that day job!)—out on the mountain trails with a freebie bike for a good day’s ride.


I’m looking forward to getting to know her better (I use Jasmin and Jazlyn a lot).

With that hair style, she reminds me of Android 18 from DBZ.
