Looks great Canary3D! smile

Question, I don’t have the Native American head morphs. Will the morphs still work?

First I’ll reiterate what I added upstream, which is that the Wicked Fairytale Morphs are also needed for these presets….sorry, I left them out when I answered earlier.

Second, the way “dial spin” presets work is that whatever dials are there will get set, and any that aren’t will get ignored. So if you don’t have all the required morph packs, the preset will load but will look a bit different. In this case the NA set gives shape to the eyes, forehead, and upper cheekbones, and the Wicked Fairytale Morphs provide a distinctive curvy lip shape, as well as some cheekbone shaping.  The body shapes are entirely evolution morph driven, IIRC.

This is great! Can even do the silly lady-with-the-clock-in-her-belly mantlepiece statue. All I need is a clock face (and I have those).

The male is Timeless Male Hair (http://www.daz3d.com/hair/timeless-male-hair) with all of the scalp materials made invisible (set opacity to 0%, specular to 0%, and specular color to black).  The female is Tears Hair (http://www.daz3d.com/tears-hair-for-genesis) with the scalp, wispy bits, and long parts made invisible.  Both of those are platinum club $1.99 items so they’re good grabs if you don’t have them already.

Sooooooon….verrry soooooon….

Here are some Genesis caryatids (AKA column ladies) in Vue 10 with native Vue materials.  The porch structure is Kay’s Lair by DM - I made the columns invisible and put the caryatids in their places. (The column bases and tops are part of the Sculptural Genesis kit.)  The dress is Wicked Red Carpet by Xena.

And here’s a closer view of one of the caryatids, this time rendered in Cinema 4D with a native C4D marble shader.  This is the included classical female character, with Xena’s dress and Tears hair.  (The eyebrows are a conformer and they’re also included, in case anyone didn’t see that info upstream)

This and the Vue pic were done by exporting wavefront OBJs and then using the target app (Vue or C4D) to delete the invisible parts, which only takes a minute if your app lets you select by material.

Thanks! I love caryatids - mine is inspired by Henry Hering’s for the Field Museum in Chicago (http://www.iloveallertonpark.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Field-Museum-HEad-and-Torso-Caryatid.jpg) which in turn were inspired by the Acropolis’ Porch of the Maidens (https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/5a/Porch_of_Maidens.jpg).  I remember when I was a kid visiting the museum being so fascinated by the idea that these ladies were holding up the roof of the museum, and did they ever get bored or want a break! LOL

OMG Canary! I am so glad I have waited for this prize from back at the kitbashing contest. And, the UV map sounds extremely exciting!

I hope you really have fun with it, I’ll get it added to your account (and the other winner who’s waiting for it) as soon as it goes live.  Thank you for waiting so patiently - offline life kept interfering and I kept adding things to it, too. I think kitbashers will have a blast with the UV set, not to mention all the other goodies.

Heads up: the Native American head morphs for Genesis are in fast grab right now. http://www.daz3d.com/fast-grab-3d-models/ethnicity-for-genesis-native-american

This is required for the Classical Female character in my set (along with Evolution morphs and Wicked Fairytale morphs).  The Classical Male character doesn’t require the Native American morphs, just the Evolution and Fairytale. FYI.

One more teaser showing a few of the included shaders (which you can use on anything, because they’re seamless) - two of the plasters and a black porcelain.

Really, a set of sculptural poses and no “little boy peeing in the water fountain” in the lot? Tsk tsk.
