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

    I believe that was asked and answered

     

    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)

     

     

    Chohole said:

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

     I don't think that's quite the same thing....

  • We'd really like to see what you do with existing male bases.  Genesis set to male, or any of the male bases in ensuing generations, please.

    I'm wondering if I can even pull it off. Besides, we're still waiting for G3M.

    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

     

    Have you tried rendering scenes in pieces and compositing in postwork its what I used to do, still do for anything real large.

    Chris,

    Sorry for pressing the figure issue, but the rules state that we can use any male humanoid figure.  Relying on that, I used Michael 4.  Your recent reply indicated that we should limit ourselves to Genesis set to male or later male bases (genesis 2 male).  Should I go back and redo my scene using a genesis+ base?  One reason that I chose M4 instead of genesis was that I thought Naomi's hair stubble was the perfect Ulysses accessory, but it is applied to the M4 mesh; it is not a conforming figure.  http://www.daz3d.com/men-only

    Heck you can use the old poser Dork if you want to,   Not sure that he would win though 

    Using a female base figure is the only thing that is not within the scope of this challenge.

     

    I have an M4 that is still working out what he is going to wear, after his refreshing dip.  but he is NAE

    Yep, sorry didn't make that clearer.  What Chohole said.  :)

    I think Chohole already said no; it has to start out as a male figure. I'd have to check the rest of the thread, but I don't have time right now.

    @ DarkSpartan: I found the quote after all. She was responding to timmins.william about using G2F morphed into a male. I had  been thinking about doing it too, before I read that.

    I tried that a long time ago, and what a mess I made . . I think about it . . every time there is a contest I would liked to enter. It's not just rendering  a multiple items, it's how laggy every time I try to adjust something starts to get to me.

    I should attempt doing that again

    This sounds fun, but a bit of clarification please regarding Chohole's "Any Humanoid Male figures can be used." in the OP and Cris Palomino's "We'd really like to see what you do with existing male bases.  Genesis set to male, or any of the male bases in ensuing generations, please." near the top of this page:

    1) Is this restricted to DAZ humanoid male figures or are non-DAZ ones also permitted ?
    2) When you say 'ensuing generations' do you actually mean 'preceding generations' - i.e. are Michael 1-4 allowed? Or is this restricted to Genesis ?

    And additionally:

    3) Is this restricted to DAZ Studio renders? My DS4.8 is now ticking over at last and raring to go...

    Cheers, Pete :)

    {edit: just spotted Chohole's earlier post confirming ANY male figure's okay}

    Any male Humanoid figures, any generations.

    Any program, we already have Carrara entries.

    Hey I didn't see anything of Yeager since beginning of the year, wellcome back Yeager, how did you end up in this predicament...?cheeky

  • What level of postwork (if any) is allowed ?

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

    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))

     

    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?

     

    Sorry but it seems I was wrong when I told you this, it seems I believe that images can be posted off site.

    Good news (it would be nice to have additional info like this at the bottom of the OP)

    I want to use the Dork! laugh
    Used Carrara

    Loaded V4 and applied the Shadow Dancer for V4

    Then I posed V4.. loaded up the Dork... took a bit to find him.. Used the same pose as applied to V4

    Then I hid V4 and moved the Dork into position.. Had to do some body adjustments and hide his lower body which was relatively simple in Carrra, added some Carrara hair and used a Carrara skin texture on him. Added Mec4D's free birthday hair for G2Female to him and off he goes.... smiley

    Rendered him out using PNG with transparent background and used Ron's brushes to finish off..

    It's not a contest winner but I liked how it turned out so here's one that fits the category at least.  Here's G2M rescuing Genesis kid.
