Free Character Presets

I've decided to share some character presets with the rest of the community. Important: Keep in mind that they are technically shape presets, not morphs, which means that you'll need specific products to make them work. They don't include material options either.

    AOSHI

    Okay, first character is Aoshi for G3 male, originally designed to be a companion for Sakura 8 (since there doesn't seem to be a male in sight yet). The scene subset included will only work if you have Sakura 8, since it forces the eyes and brow to work with G3 (but you'll need to tweak and pose each eyebrow and eye independently).

    Required products (also listed in the ReadMe):

    This is Aoshi with Sakura 8 eyes and eyebrows parented (which you can load via the scene subpreset).

    I'm also attaching some emission masks I made and use to give the eyes the glow without affecting the cornea too much.

    Thank you so very much @giselle3000 - he's adorbs, esp as spike.  I've dl him but I neither have nor know how to use the GenX scripts, so I will hold off using the character until I advance a little more and have all of the assets.  I just wanted to say he is wonderful.  If you made regular morph presets that are similar in style and sold them, I'd definitely be in line to buy :)

  • Very Nice. These type of charaters never go out of style. Nice work.

    These are fantastic, Giselle! I can tell you put a lot of time, effort and love into them. Thanks so much for sharing them with us!

    Wohoo! Glad to see you here! :D I'm gonna share today some renders of the new character I'm working on (another possible partner for Sakura 8)!

    Don't hesitate to contact me either through this thread or private message if you need help figuring out GenX (or anything else, for that matter). If I can help, I'll be more than happy to ;).

     

     

    Very Nice. These type of charaters never go out of style. Nice work.

    Thanks! Hope they are useful, though using Sakura 8 eyes on a Gen3M isn't issue free. The eyes would have to be moved and posed independently in the paramenter tab, rather than through the expression dials. Same with the brows. But you can always use the shapes with their normal eyes as well.

    @Llynara, whoohoo! Happy to see you here as well! :D Hope any of them are useful. Aoshi was originally done just for kicks. I didn't expect so many people would like him, so once I started to package him I realized I'd used so many products. Next characters I share I'll try to limit the amount of different products I use haha.

    SOJIRO

    Okay, this is going to be the next character preset I'll share for G3 male. Like Aoshi, he's designed to be a companion for Sakura 8 (since there doesn't seem to be a male in sight yet). The scene subset included will only work if you have Sakura 8, since it forces the eyes and brow to work with G3 (but you'll need to tweak and pose each eyebrow and eye independently).

    Still need to check with I sent a message to Tofusan to see whether he/she can distribute the Genx transferred head I made for G3M or if he/she would allow me to distribute it. Will update here if I get a response.

    RENDERS

    In the meantime, here's some renders of Sojiro. Let's start with his shape:

  • Added the close-up render of Sojiro. Good news is that I only used those five products I wrote above, so he should be more accesible. I also sent a message through sharecg to Tofusan. Hopefully he/she will agree to distribute the G3F head to use on G3M.

    Sojiro's character preset is ready for download! You can find it here: Deviantart | ShareCG.  BTW, Sojiro is using G3M eyes in the render above :).

     

    Anime head: I didn't get a respond from Tofusan, so you'll still need GenX for that head transfer.

    Inspired by your characters, I gave dial spinning a try. Have to say it was a major fail. Kudos on creating these wonderful presets.

    Thank you! But trust me, I've had my fair share of... oops characters. Where I dial and mix so much, that I see the problem areas but can't fix them. So I end up just restarting from scratch. With Aoshi, for example, When I did those first renders, they were all with him looking at the camera, so the face was good enough. But when I started to package him, I realize he didn't look that well in profile, so I had to tweak him until he looked well there as well (which is why I also took so long to release him).

    Thank you :)

  • Thanks for letting us in on what you used to make the characters. I am just frankly surprised no one has made an entire thread on character presets people have made by fusing other characters and morphs [:/

    My pleasure on sharing the presets :). And a character presets thread is a fun idea for sure.
  • Worlds_EdgeWorlds_Edge Posts: 1,988

    Now that you are making products for sale, perhaps you can create a full male Sakura companion character.  One can only wish and hope :)

    I will definitely discuss it with my partner. We had been talking about creating a character, for sure. But we've been working on and off on a monster creature. But i will just say it's not out of the question! :D
  • Worlds_EdgeWorlds_Edge Posts: 1,988

    That would be awesome, but I know there are lots of factors to consider before deciding on a particular product. 

    Someone, in another thread, was trying to find a Sakura companion, and that is what reminded me of the presets you generously offered.  I put the link on the page where the question was asked.  Anyway, Aoshi is a fave of mine.  I haven't been able to make his exact match, but I don't have all the prerequisites yet.  One day, I shall get there!

    With the new products to move G3 morphs to G8 i wonder if there might be another dial experiment for G8. The free anime head (which plays a big role in creating a companion for Sakura) was releases for G8M. I will see if i can come up with a new mix, since it's been a while since i did one, and post it here ;).

    If that happens, I'll be glad I put a bee in your bonnett, heh heh.

    I got your comic kit (and other products) and hope to try it out soon.  I really need to render more.
