    No I swore off betas since the last one wreaked havoc with my custom categories...... I will play with it though if my willpower fails

    I've tried it and it works ok.  But, you'll be able to add dforce to, virtually, anything you want, to make it dynamic - no need for PA's to update their old items.  Keep your willpower in check, it's probably worth waiting for the general release - my curiosity's satisfied and I'm uninstalling the beta again.

    Not technically Michael, but "a friend": Genesis 8 Male as Superman.

    I wanted to do some free poses with men's ties. I kind of like formal wear. But I had trouble finding a dynamic looking tie that you can actual pose well. I found this one, but there is no neck piece...... Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Also a nice men's shirt that buttons or unbuttons would be nice. I only use gen8 male so it has to fit him, or be usable as a parented prop if you know what I mean. =-)

    I'm on a render dump...  I was feeling kinda dissatisfied my renders, but it was probably just a mood? So I have a bunch I just didn't post Like this one of M8 back when he first came out

     

     

    Its not exciting, I'm not entirely satisfied with the eyes, but was that really worth it languishing on my harddrive?

    No.

    He's really well done. I love the expression, too. Sort of an anguished sneer. (I just gave it a thumbs up in gallery.)

    Keep dumping. I love your work.

  • Cleaned Up

    Gave my grey oc an overhaul change.  No more hair cards / mesh.  Particle hair and beard now.  Some facial structure changes.

  • RAMWolffRAMWolff Posts: 10,151

    Love that!  I like how you call the older hair "Hair cards"  in truth that's really what they are! 

  • Serene NightSerene Night Posts: 17,568

    He looks quite dapper and real to me. His gray eyes I have not noticed before look quite impressive too

    It took me a minute. My first thought was, "Why's the clock on the floor?" (The title of the render made me look at the clock first.) Then I realized the clock was on the wall, and so was Peter. Fun image. And yeah, that clock is really close to the wall. I wonder how many hearing aid batteries it uses, and how often they need to be replaced…!

    So... I've been expirimenting in Cycles again... on the one hand rendering in Blender does really slow down my workflow. On the other hand... pretty much everything else. For one thing HAIR! I love blender's hair system so much. Also while the material setup is slower, the final render is much faster (for the front render i rendered at 2000x2600 and it tool 1 1/2 hours, for the 3/4 view I rendered at 1200x1560 and it took 45 minutes) and my computer doesn't overheat as much.
