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/

Darkskin-Love is one I’d spotted earlier — I’m sure it’s a great group, but not where I’d want to submit a render of a praying childohh  I’ll try Dark-Anatomy, thanks!

KickAir 8P - 20 June 2012 03:09 PM

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

I’ll try to ask around.  I know of individual artists here and there but no groups off the top of my head.

Thank you very much Kalypso, I appreciate it!

Kickair, Darkskin-Love is a good group and I don’t think they’d have a problem with that image. It’s nicely done and sweet.  smile

YESSS Neftis afros are in the store! I know what I’ll be doing today!

Thought I’d cross post this, since it’s relevant:

African Skin Settings in GIMP from (almost) any texture.

In GIMP (and maybe any other bitmap editor)
Use the Colourize Dialog (COLOURS:COLOURIZE)
Hue -      23
Saturation -  50
Lightness - Negative 56
Do NOT forget, when doing the limps (I mean LIMBS, durn it… sorry, my spelling sucks cuz of missing fingers), to make the palms and foot soles LIGHTER.  I did this by layering and erasing my new texture over the old one.
Meet Shahana!  Dialed in on Genesis with the ethnic morphs and V5 morphs… I used Wsupatoi’s Trish texture to get this one… (linked to DiviantArt)

This is the Ovidius texture from Morris with the surface settings tweaked a bit to make it darker.

Glancing at things, it seems there may some cause and effect going on.  They may not mind a cute pic but the 3D section is overwhelmingly pinups so it gives the impression that all that would be expected.  Other sections seem more evenly balanced in art types.

If it wasn’t for the fact that I didn’t have any internet access since 11am - 7pm today, I would have already put in a render with this wicked hair file…..........

I didn’t originally notice that this was fibre hair. I’ve not been convinced by fibre head hair products so far (although Cath’s body hair tests were great), but this looks really convincing in the promos. I’d love to see some users’ renders with it.

Also, I like the look of Tyrese, but I hear the skin texture resource is the same as Benjamin, which I’ve already got. I’m wondering if it will different enough to be worthwhile—although I love the Tyrese morphs. There suddenly seems to be a lot of stuff I want, here and at Rendo—I’m not sure I can buy it all!

Tyrese has gentials which can be used for Ben.

Yeah that hair looks really good!  And surprisingly colorful promos for Neftis, nice change.

Yeah, I didn’t actually know it was fibre hair either until I loaded it. Well so far in my opinion - The good: it’s very detailed and highlights are accurate. The meh: it doesn’t have nearly as many morphs as the Alicia afro, and the front hairs look really crinkly to me when the hair is made larger.

In this example, I used both the new Neftis afro and the Alicia one underneath to fill a bit of the empty space that Neftis’ leaves. No postwork, so you can might be able see where they overlap. Anyway, I think all it will take is a little erasing over the edges to ‘trim’ it and it’ll look good. Would definitely recommend this product while it’s on sale!

I hope I’ve put Neftis3D Beautiful Black HairStyles through it paces, I think I understand Snowsultan what you meant about the front of the hair and the hair cap; but with a little tweaking here and there I still love it…....So here’s my girl Carmen…

I purchased the Marie Texture because it was on sale, now the question is what do I download? I don’t have a MAC PC.
