Scott-Livingston - 14 June 2012 08:46 AM

The bracers came from this product: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/dragonlord-for-genesis/ * which I got as part of the M5 Pro Bundle—which I’d highly recommend if/when you start getting Genesis stuff. Or you might as well go all out and get the Pro Suite if you can afford it—it has the Ethnicity shapes and the essential Genesis Starter Bundle in it. The Benjamin character and the Manly Men for M5 product are part of the Pro Bundle (and Pro Suite) too.


I actually almost used the formerly free Genesis Bracers, but in the end went with the other ones. smile


*Something is weird with the in-store images for this product…


OK Scott-Livingston what if I got these sale items: Genesis Evolution: Muscularity, Genesis Evolution: Morph Bundle and the Ethnicity for Genesis Bundle. Would I still need an M5 and V5 figure? or would I be able to make my own characters with the items mentioned?

For Angel and anyone else who doesn’t have M5 and V5: apparently they are included in the latest issue of 3D Artist Magazine! You might be able to find it in a Barnes & Noble, or you can buy it online: https://www.imagineshop.co.uk/magazines/3dartist/3d-artist-issue-43.html I alr.eady own them (bought M5 here and got V5 free with another magazine) but sounds like a great opportunity for those who don’t have them yet…


Anyway, great renders everyone! Man, I have to get those Men of Character at some point…

OMG that’s awesome!!

Adding a couple more characters to the list:
Kids- Jamika http://www.daz3d.com/shop/jamika-for-k4/ (that texture can go several ways)
Female- Ambrette for Mavka http://www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/ambrette-for-mavka/83091

KickAir 8P - 18 June 2012 11:36 AM

M5-Don from Cris Palomino’s Men of Character II (Chris said that one’s inspired by Don Cheadle) and the texture from Benjamin M5:
 
War Machine — Target Acquired

Love the reflective work and overall image KickAir8P . . .

Thanks — I used DZfire’s Real Metals shader set, it was perfect for this.
 
Can anybody here recommend a similar-to-this-thread deviantART group?  I’m looking for one that focuses on black people as people — I’m not objecting to cheesecake/beefcake per se, but I haven’t been able to find such a dA group that I’d be comfortable submitting my Kid4 renders to.  oh oh

Snow Sultan may know if there are any such groups on DA, but if all else fails you could always wait until this forum gets back too normal and share with us here!!! Can I ask what you mean by ‘cheesecake/beefcake’? You can PM me if you feel the subject matter may be a bit controversial if posted…..

eyecandy pinups, cheesecake=female, beefcake=male

scorpio64dragon’s insanely good sepia M#(?) on the previous page is beefcake..  though skirting the line between that and just awesome art, mostly due to the masterful expression work.

Thanks for the explanation Fisty…......I like my escapism, so I will stay with the cheesecake/beefcake images….. OMG I’m frightening myself because I’m actually using the right words…..

ZamuelNow informed me about this fantastic thread over at Renderosity, and it inspired me to go away and create my own render specifically for here. This is my own V4 Rochelle character using the Marie Elite skin and rendered in Luxrender via Reality 2.

Whoo Oooo Chevy welcome and wicked render, I hope to get the Marie Elite skin when DAZ has a decent sale on; not too sure about the Luxrender yet…...

Sorry, still not receiving notices about this thread.  raspberry

Snow Sultan may know if there are any such groups on DA


I know of two:
Darkskin-Love: http://darkskin-love.deviantart.com/
Dark-Anatomy: http://dark-anatomy.deviantart.com/


Kalypso, could I repost your mage Smacky pic on my dA page (with your permission and giving credit of course)?


Thanks,

SnowS

Wow, NaChelle’s been sitting in my wishlist for all this time and I can’t believe I forgot to add her to the list here. Oops. I’ll update either later tonight or sometime tomorrow.


Probably should post this here though I don’t feel like trying to embed a resized image: http://www.renderosity.com/mod/gallery/index.php?image_id=2341063

Sure Snow, feel free to do so.  I got caught up with some unexpected renovating and haven’t had time to update my DA page.  Fortunately, I’ll be on vacation next month so I’ll get to it as well as finish up some more Smacky renders I’ve got half-done!
