@ Lord Ganthor:  I like the four seasons thing too.  Working in Winter now, and wondering what I should do for a spring character.

@ WhiteMyst:  I understand completely.  My runtime is such a mess…..

@ amy_aimei:  Thanks Amy!  Your A3 Amy character was one of the first I ever used, and my favorite for a long time.

@ nobody1954:  You’re most welcome, and I plan on more for A3.

@ LmWolfSpirit:  You’re most welcome, and thank you.


I have A3 Winter in the works, and hope to have her ready soooooon.

Something green…

Just as a knee-jerk, gut reaction thing? Somebody who’s tall and thing with long limbs. On the petite side but not super-model emaciated. Probably light skinned with blue eyes (and short blond hair, which is, of course not your call). In short, something that exudes new, fresh, exciting and a breath of new air after a long winter.

Well, that’s my take on it anyway…

When I did my Goddess renders (ages ago now) I had Spring as young sprightly and virginal, Spring is the maiden. The first incarnation of the Goddess.

Hmmmm…both excellent ideas, and actually quite similar.  I was thinking along those lines myself, though leaning toward a redhead. 

That brings another question:  All my characters, with the exception of Autumn, and now Winter, have involved body morphs.  Does that make it too difficult for people to use, since the default clothing doesn’t then fit well?  I’m open to suggestions.

No, a couple preview renders.  There are still some funky things going on with the eyes that I need to address, but at someone’s suggestion I’m including a few different texture options.  Here is Winter, as a cool breeze, and as a dark cold wind.  Yeah, whatever.  So much for waxing poetic…......

Redhead? Really? I could see that for Autumn, being fall colors and all…still, you never know until you try.

I’ve never had a problem fitting clothes to any of your characters, but I rarely use default clothing by nature. Most everything I use has all or most morphs included, so it’s not an issue for me. I guess if you do separate head and body INJ files, people could have an option as to what to use.

Nice renders, although I don’t see any weirdness going on the the eyes, but A3 has always had some strange issues with the eyes when looking to extremes to the left and right. Hiro had the worst problems with the eyes that drove me to distraction. She’s a good looking character and I’ll be interested to see any updates and the final version. I’m still pondering how I want to approach the 4 seasons render…

I just remember that dyald made a d-Form set for his A3 characters.  With the d-Form set, the user can deform the default clothing to fit the character.  I think it is similar to V4’s magnetize clothing.  It may be a good idea.

Winter looks great.  I have seen Summer and Autumn.  How about Spring?

Thanks!  There are, unseen in the renders, some funky wrinkles near her temples.  I think I just about have that cleared up though.  Working now on different texture ideas.

That’s a great idea, and something I may try.  Thanks!

Spring is still a little ways away, both on the calendar and in my runtime.  LOL I hope to get started on her soon.

 

If anyone noticed, in the renders above Winter is wearing Amy’s Beach Volleyball top.  She can do that easily because…..she has a breast morph just for those wonderful Amy clothes.  :D


Other news:  You will find a new/old character on ShareCG, Vixen.  If anyone remembers, she was a giveaway for entering the freebie challenge sometime back in ‘09.  She’s free to everyone now, and can be found HERE

A very weird story for you…I started sketching out some vague idea for a render anticipating Winter’s arrival. My idea of “sketching” is creating landscapes and scenes in Bryce just to see what I could do. Oddly enough, the more I worked on it the more it started to take on a “Spring” look and the winter theme took a back seat. No big deal, I’ll just hold it in reserve…but I’m still starting all over again for “Winter”. Sometimes I hate that my mind wanders like that…

Wow.  It’s been some time again since I was here last.  I’m still not exactly pleased with my progress on “Winter”, and I’ve kinda allowed myself to get sidetracked with an Asian headmorph.  So, perhaps I should let people see where I’m going with it and see what happens.

I don’t have a name yet, and I plan on working with the texture some more…

I’ll try to get a profile render up tomorrow.

You should get sidetracked more often…She’s very pretty, but then, you don’t exactly have a knack for turning out ugly characters. Nice overall shape with very clean lines. I’d say she’s a winner. Just to drop a casual hint here, have you ever given any thought to expanding your line with a few other ethnic types? Okay, maybe that’s the wrong word to use here…more racial diversity? I thinking Native American Indian, Eastern Indian, people of Spanish decent…maybe even Inuit. Let’s not forget African and African American either. An while I’m at it (hey, I’m on a roll here…) have you ever given any though to characters for Hiro? A series of ethnically diverse morphs for Hiro would be a welcome addition to anyone’s collection. Just a few random thoughts…

@ Lord Ganthor:  Thanks!  ‘Racial diversity’ is an excellent idea.  I wish I had the skills to tackle such a project.  Also, I know that the guys just don’t get a lot of attention and it’s a shame.  Perhaps I should make a few guy friends for all these girls…hhmmmm…...

@ robkelh:  Thanks for that link.  I’ll visit and see what happens. 

In the meantime, if anyone has any ideas I’m always open.  More than one of my A3 characters has been named by other people.  smile

Here’s a profile render so you can see more of the face shape.  She’s also sporting my “Amy breast” morph so that she can wear amy_aimei’s excellent creations.

I’m thinking I want to redo the eyebrow transmap, and perhaps the eyelashes as well.

Wow.  Has it really been since December of last year since I put anything here?

Two A3 characters languishing in my runtime waiting for completion, and I’m continually allowing myself to become distracted.  I’ll finish them soon.  I think all I need to do is make up my mind that they’re ok as they are.

In the meantime…is anyone interested in a character, head and body morph, with texture, for Laura?

She needs a name, and if someone will help with that I’ll get her wrapped up and ready for download.  Custom morphs.  No need for her morph pack.
