Good question. Not that I’ve seen.

Though, I’m sure that the second one surfaces, Slim Man will dramatically increase in sales… wink

EDIT: My post number has reached 404… The most reoccurring number I see on my internet browser every time I reinstall bits of my old Gen 4 content! grin

would probably be easier to make a geografted ‘mask’ to hide the face…. maybe?
Or you could possibly take a primative, deform it and scale it to approximately face size, and if ts bubble enough (so only touches sides of face/top/bottom of face, not the nose/mouth) you could use smoothing to make it fit the face…. or use a deformer on genesis face to flatten it first, and pull it back into the head, before doing the smooth thing.

Good idea, thanks guys.  =)  I tried using Sickle’s lipless and noseless morphs but they don’t show up in DS 4.0 =(  I tried making morphs in Hex but it crashed on me.  Postwork is probably going to be the easiest.  It’s just for a 200x200 avatar so it doesn’t have to be perfect on close inspection.

Fisty here’s a quick example of a crude primitive mask made from a sphere, deformers, and smoothing, and a deformer for the face. Obviously texture is something you have to work out, an its only matching the outer edge of the face not the actual shape, so could probably send you the obj if you need it.

I slapped your plain velvet shader on it

Then I liked it so much I put your sparkles on it….

O.o

They look good and a wee bit creepy, especially with the textures!

I could probably whip one up in ZBrush as a morph for Genesis.  I’m sure someone will get to it before I do but it’s probably not that hard to achieve.  That way the skin textures would all work. A face skin with no eyebrows would give quite a freaky look! 

You want ears gone too or with ears?

I’ve got a noface prop for v4 floating around in my sharecg freebies.  If you don’t take anyone else up on their offers, you could turn that prop into a conformer for genesis and then reverse the v4 shape out of it?

I sent a PM to Bella but she’s not gotten back to me yet.

This is what I have so far, tried for what I felt I could post work easiest.  The trick is I need to preserve the jaw and skull shape and the beard.

(Nice beard, eh, Joe?)  =D

Oh.. should point out I’m still using DS 4.0.3 if either of you were feeling froggy about helping me out.  I woulda just used Sickle’s morphs and been happy if they’d worked but she updated them for 4.5 and now they apparently don’t work in 4.0 ‘cause they don’t show up anywhere, even tried searching for the names in all morph and shapes.

Here’s my V4 noface prop if you want to give it ago.  Hypothetically, you should be able to load it, click the scene tab and go to assets->create clothing.  I would think that somewhere in there it would give you the option to reverse out the V4 shape.

Awesome, thanks!  I’ll just do a quick Gn fitting on it in Hex and use the transfer utility on it.  =D /hugs!

Is that the “Town and Country” Shirt? I need to dress a land shark up like a pizza boy and haven’t quite decided on a button up shirt to go with.

Yeah, seems to be pretty nice, at least what I’ve seen, not pulled back the camera to inspect the rest of it.

Your face prop is working pretty well so far, I’ll post up a pic in a bit.  =)
