    To be honest, when I started this thread ( http://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/65161/it-s-not-raining-men/p1 ) it had a different name, to get some attention. Didn't think it would lead anywhere, because these kind of topics always seem to be a dead end. BUT, there were quite a few people that agreed, so I sent a link to the DAZ team to get them involved in the conversation as well. They changed the name to something a bit more... catchy, and it sparked another thread ( http://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/65357/the-male-content-creation-mutual-support-group-thread/p1 ) dedicated to forum members creating male content.

    It surprised me to see the reaction of the community, and that DAZ themselves got involved. And now, thanks to Chohole, we have this. And it's amazing to see someone like Mal3Imagery get involved as well.

    I have only one thing to say...

     

    HALLELUJAH!!

    It was the whole mod team that decided to do this. We jsut decided to let Cho post it.

    Oops! My bad. In tht case, thanks to the whole mod team for getting on board.

    What's the entry deadline? When will winners be announced?

    I suppose if it has to remain within TOS guidelines, we couldn't just put one of the guys into Tangled. Pity, that.

     

    tangled on gianni was my plan 

  • Cool!  I have an idea or two.  I take it that a minimal amount of post processing (levels, saturation) will be permitted?

    We have no objection to Postwork, as long as the repurposing element is clear (if used)

    Does it count as 'male' if you start with G2F and use GenX2 morphs to move the figure to male? (I've been doing this to ensure female clothing fits properly)

     

  • ChoholeChohole Posts: 33,604

    NO    not for this challenge.   We state Male Humanoid figure.   Only repurposing is to be done on the clothing item, not the figure.

    EDITED TO ADD: Sorry - I guess I have to withdraw this.  I missed the post that said not to post entries anywhere offsite.

    "Escape from Calypso"

    Carrara 8.5 Pro

    Michael 4, with Realistic Seas by PhilW, the Everyman Hair and Men Only stubble by Naomi, Castaway Dinghy by Art Collaborations, Blade Maiden Skirt by Bobbie25 and Guari, Cheerleader panties for G2F by Sarsa Val3dart .

     

    Repurpose -

    a) The Blade Maiden skirt - I turned it into a loin cloth for Ulysses.  I parented the skirt to M4hip, then matched the poses and morphed in Carrara's vertex modeler.  I created transparency Mats to create jagged edges.

    b) Cheerleader panties for G2F - It is the sail.  I created transparency Mats for the dinghy sail, then replaced the sail with the panties.  I scaled them up, created a transparency Mat to eliminate one side, then used the  vertex modeler to fit the panties to the mast and the boom.  (You know, a goddess might have some big panties lying around).

    Using panties as a sail! I like that! Quite innovative!

     

    Edit: Besides, as a sail they look better than as panties.

    I can't imagine there is, but is there any restriction from posting the image elsewhere, too? (Like Deviantart) ((Working diligently, this 'clever idea' turned into constant tweaks and rerenders and discovering I can, in fact, get the project file so large it dumps to CPU, oooh))

    I have no sympathy for you, Will... not when everything I render is CPU only... lol

    Welcome to the slow side of Iray...

    When I asked Chohole said that they want the images kept within Daz.

    Argh. That wasn't in the rules - it was in one of the later thread posts and I completely missed it and posted mine elsewhere after I posted it here.  Guess I have to remove mine from consideration then. sad

    Can things like that please be added to the first post as part of the rules so that others don't miss it too?

    Hang on, I will ask Richard and get back to you on that.

    And Richard's reply

    Well, if it was a case of a concurrent contest I don't see why not - post in PC Inspirations and ours, if that's allowed by the other contest. And I don't see why they shouldn't post to a gallery at the same time as entering

    This was the actual post.  I did add that we would rather it stayed at Daz,   but we are trying not to be too mandatory.

    I meant mainly whether I can put it up on Deviantart, which is my main location for saving my artwork. In my case, storage, rather than other contests.

    So exactly what are the rules - can images be posted elsewhere or not, its the kinda thing that has to be mandatory its either yes or no.

    Perhaps mandatory was not the xpression I was looking for, we don't want this to get bogged down with a whole list of rules. As I said before Richards reply covers it, and we wish to keep this a fun an friendly challenge, please.

    Entry #1, The Travelers -- The Guest

    Content:

    Genesis with Wilmap loincloth, Zac hair, Unshaven for Genesis, Cyclops skin

    Reptilian 6 (G2M : http://www.daz3d.com/reptilian-6-hd-for-genesis-2-male-s ) dialed about halfway in Regency outfit ( http://www.daz3d.com/regency-genesis-2-male ). Tea cup from ( http://www.daz3d.com/a-curious-tea-drink-me )

    G2F with Reptilian 6 morphs transfered via GenX2 ( http://www.daz3d.com/genesis-generation-x2 ) in a Vintange Rose outfit ( http://www.daz3d.com/vintage-rose-for-genesis-2-females ) (yes, I know this doesn't qualify as 'male figure with female outfit')

    Steamboat machine with some, er, creative textures ( http://www.daz3d.com/the-steamboat-machine )

    Ocean wide, ocean texture redone a bit, skydome turned emissive with a spotlight adding 'sunlight.'

    Liquid pack to make smokestack smoke and 'drive cloud.'

     

    I think that covers it. ;)

    (Hopefully entry #2 and #3 won't take a dozen rerenders to correct things. mutter)

    okay finally got it to render, had to keep trying the render smaller and smaller, bit bummed about that. Thinking I may need to render without lights

    but here is entry #1 (re-purposed)

    Model: Genesis(1)

    Scorching Black and Red -Armlets
    Z_The_Twin_Blade -
    Mr Rabbit -
    Headkase - G_SensibleShoes2 -
    Hongyu’s cowgirl4 - CG4 Jeans
    Evilinnocence Night Slayers - V4 Rebel Shirt (I don't know how the texture came out like it did here, but leaving it)
    Kozaburo - Short Hair evolution
    Skin Texture - Emelie and Edward Odd - Emelie

     

    Note: I'll edit in links as soon as I find them

    Note II: for those that don't know, my machine can't render more then what I have, so I cannot do the nice scenes like others can do, but this challenge I figured I can enter with out an actual full scene

    Entry #2: Whew. Another long render.

    http://www.daz3d.com/robogenii skin applied to G2M with a bunch of adjustments.

    http://www.daz3d.com/easy-snap-sci-fi-corridors converted to Iray (which worked surprisingly easily -- almost everything is just a simple application of Iray Uber shader, with the exception of the window, which I wanted reflective)

    I just had a really evil thought: Would it be acceptable if I made a male character out of G3F and rendered that?
