    Honestly that hair is just a place holder

    Haha, careful y'all It might start to grow on me. jk

    Well I combed through the store and found a few possibilities, maybe they'll go on sale sometime.

    While we're talking about hair, some more images on the subject.


    The first shows that the same questionable hair can look good.

    The second shows another "questionable" hair choice.

    Ethin  is it just me ? but something looks off with the right breast of the second figure or is it just the top she is wearing?

    The top, the texture, the lighting. The top was meant for V4 and I useing it on Aiko3, a very flat A3.

    I know your all excited to see what I do with my characters, but a lot of them have just barely sprouted and it'll take some time to see what they grow into.

    Powdered P1nk sat on my drive/mind for 4 years before I knew what she was meant for, but by then she was fully formed and ready to go.

  • Man, Ethin you are cranking out good stuff all the time. Super impressed. And a little inspired. Maybe I can make some time for an updated Aiko and friends this week.

    I really like Vanille  for girl 8, someday maybe I'll pick her up...


    Until then I can always fake her.
    Vanille for Aiko 3.

    I'm working on some promo art and I'm wondering, if you all were looking to download a character preset what would you want to see in the promos?

    Vanille is one of my favorites! And she mixes well with others, imo. Just a dash of her dialled in can really up the cuteness factor of a character. Plus the teddybear-icecream earrings she comes with are adorable! 

    You did a nice job of approximating her. If you get a chance though, I definitely recommend picking her up! :D VincentXyooj did such an awesome job on her, imo.

    Fairly neutral whole body and face close-up; maybe an image highlighting anything 'special' about the character. Showing off versatility, some artier images.

    It started out as a lil' homage to Ray Harryhausen given the Dreka looks like some sort of single frame animated puppet, but then things kinda' got a bit silly.

    Cue "Yakety Sax", more casually remembered as the "Benny Hill" chase theme.

    Sincerely,

    Bill

    Melody (1) for Aiko 3.  As packaged, she just has human feet.  But years ago a vendor named JENelson (better known as Achronicity at Fur Affinity) sold a product at Renderosity called "Kasa for Aiko 3" that allowed one to give A3 quasi lupine (wolf-like) features including pawed, digitigrade feet.  The morphs could also be applied to Melody as the geometry's the same.

    Alas, JENelson's store closed years ago so the product "vanished".  Eventually a friend (I think it was MaPPer) informed me Achronicity was experimenting with an improved version of the product.  He told me how i could contact him through the furry art site and so I did.  he provided the newer files and I applied them to my ongoing 'work in progress" that is Mzzkiti 9the blond catgirl in several of my renders).  Achron' kinda' dropped out of sight for a few years, but MaPPer has informed me he's puttering with 3D assets again, so you might want to try reaching him at Fur affinity.

    Sorry, just a long winded way of saying, no, the base product does not come kitty cat feet but an "add-on" package that is not currently available (in any store of which i know).

    Sincerely,

    Bill

    I will definitely look into it. I would love to have those feet.

    I don't know what I was thinking with this one, I can barely handle posing two arms. Maybe the extras only come out for special occasions?

    Aiko 3 Head and partial body. G3 Female RyJeane (default) textures. Vignette by https://www.daz3d.com/collective3d-portrait-vignettes-contemporary-1; top and skirt are a WIP, I was wanting to see how they looked so figured it was an excuse to do another Aiko3.

    Rendered in Blender in 3 minutes 57 secs; 980ti and Threadripper. For those curious, just the Threadripper (1950x) takes 5 minutes 23 secs and just the 980ti takes 8 minutes 34 secs

    I noticed on the Freebie hair thread there was a new Aiko 3 outfit ala Medusa from the Fate series.  Figured I would mention it here for us Aiko 3 fans  :)

    Very nice. I'll keep an eye out for her in renders.
