...granted, I was coming from a Gen3/4 perspective because that is what I primarily work with as the Figure Mixer in S3A cannot mix toon and “realistic” meshes.
Jasmin, Amy, Chibi, and Nata were designed exclusively for Genesis and there are no standalone versions that work on older versions of Studio or Poser.
Actually, I do believe Nata was based off an older standalone Poser figure by the same name.
So as you can see, what was originally a decent standalone figure that didn’t receive much in the way of support, is now a popular Genesis shape that gets regular use and is capable of using any Genesis hair/outfit/texture/whatever for extra versatility.
On the discussion on GnSadie, I am really looking forward to her! However, there’s something about her face that feels odd. Could you perhaps post an image comparing the classic Sadie to the new Sadie? I don’t know if it’s the lighting you used or the realistic texture, but the face looks different to how I remember Sadie. Perhaps she would look better with a more toony texture, like Hitomi’s.
Sam looks perfect though. Can’t wait to get my hands on these! :D
