Nicola is a nice one and the fact she has a larger-than-a-dime nose makes me quite happy. She has character. She is a beauty but not a rubber-stamped, frankly-run-of-the-mill , more perfect than human could almost ever be female figure where here, in the world of 3d, is a major accomplishment. I would love to see some more character morphs and characters with…well… character. *smile*

So… does this mean y’guys would buy a lady who looks like this? Skin is temporary (Niara’s), as it is the closest approximation to what I eventually plan to use (except of course there’s some serious twist to the whole thing, but the character morph is pretty much usable for anyone).

Yes, I would purchase if there was a complimentary texture which really set her apart. I think she is quite pretty but more normal.

You may want to take a look at the Normal Challenge I put up.

Normal ... make it and render it. Render, morph and texture challenge with prizes! [CHALLENGE!]

Speaking for myself, I buy models mostly for the skins. So… It would depend on how the skin looked whether I would buy it. The facial features are less important than the look of the skin, and whether I can use it for other things effectively.

I may just if there will also be included a human texture too. Especially one with some imperfections included. Perhaps she has a normal human guise? *smile*

I’ll have to see what I can do, since right now I’m working on getting my morphs right; skinning will come a loooooot later. smile

Yes. And no. And maybe.

While the face is normal compared to normal people, it’s different from the mass cloned V4 template that’s so prevalent.  She looks nice though.  The “no” is from the fact that I’m leaning more towards buying for textures since I dial spin morphs nowadays.  I feel I’m hovering close to my texture threshold since I’ll gladly mix and match across genders if I think it looks right.  The “maybe” is because I still see interesting stuff to buy, plus I like to vote with my dollars and support something that looks like a good product.

Sorry if that was utterly unhelpful.

Oh no, that was helpful all right. ‘Cuz I’m pretty much like that—I’m a dialing monkey, I love to play with sliders.

I’ve also had problems with skins that are in the middle-tone range. I’m not sure why, but creators put less highlights in them, and they tend to just look beige. I’m not sure why, but I don’t know anyone with beige ken-doll skin….

Well, I have a mini list of sorts of midtone skins:
Shayla and Sadira Rose by SpookieLilOne.  You may want to ask her what lighting she uses.  I have both and Shayla seems to fluctuate a fair bit based on the light.  Attached a Shayla render I was just messing around with.
—RecieCup’s Renderosity store and personal site.  I have the Payne skin plus several of the freebies from her site.  Well, actually more than that but Payne seemed the most suited for the topic at hand.
—xilia78 seems to have good stuff as well but I haven’t bought anything yet so I can’t directly vouch for them.  I can vouch for SASE ROz, especially since she comes with two skin textures.
Age of Armour’s Paola is free and looks nice as well.

These three products are also all middle-skin tones that daz has and are on my wishlist, but I haven’t bought them yet, because they are a touch expensive and possibly may suffer from beigeness without a lot of skin detail. . Without better screenshots its tough for me to see what the skins look like in detail and close. But they are well done, so maybe if they do ever go on sale I might buy them…

But these textures can be used by Genesis with no issues.

So what do you want to see for Genesis that isn’t there now?

Or is there a problem implementing these textures for Genesis I don’t know about?
