My new medication finally kicked in and at last I am feeling well again! (Better living through chemistry, indeed!) I am now full-speed, back to work and I have a few projects in the works that I’d like to share with you now. As always, click on the small images to see them full-size.
By the way, for Xmas last year I got a new GPU (Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Super) but only in the last few days have I been able to use it for rendering. Support for my card in Poser did not exist until the March 30th Poser 11.3 update. Now that I can use it and it is super fast, expect far more Superfly renders from me! All the previews you will be seeing here were rendered in Superfly.
Pictured above and to the left is my brand new character for the new L’Homme base model. His name is D9S Milo and he includes, so far, four facial hair options plus five eye color options and two eyelash options and a custom sculpted, unique face morph. I want to add more to his character set but I’ve run out of ideas! If you have any suggestions about things I could add to him, please tell me and I’ll see about adding them.
Unless I come up with more ideas or someone sends me some good ideas about things to add to this character set, I have all the textures and morphs finished. (I actually started this character back in December and am just now finishing him up.) So all that’s left to do is to create the promotional renders and then I can submit Milo to Renderosity. I’ll keep you posted!
I noticed that L’Homme doesn’t have much to wear just yet; a common problem for a new base model. I purchased the Jeans for L’Homme by Tipol which are dynamic but only come with two textures. I like them and so I decided to make a new texture set for them! You can see my first base texture in the previews on this page including at right. This Dreamy Denim for L’Homme will include a variety of styles of both pants and shorts! The preview at right was rendered before I made a few more tweaks and corrections to the base texture set so it is far from the final product.
I’m still working on all the textures for this set but I have a great deal of it almost finished. After I get the textures completed, then it will be creating the material presets, and then finally promotional renders so it can be submitted to Renderosity.
This is a project I just started on the other night. This is a complete texture do-over for my D9S Zeeva character for La Femme. Although I love Zeeva, her character set has not sold well at all and I got criticized by some at Renderosity about her after she was put in the marketplace (no idea why they didn’t tell me they didn’t like her before she went into the store). Anyway, I started over from scratch in regards to her skin textures. Her new complexion is much smoother then with the previous textures. I now have most of her textures finished and am working on material presets and maybe some extra options. I plan on keeping her face morph mostly the same and I might add a complimentary body morph this time. She will have tons of makeup options, eye colors, eyelash options, and whatever else I can think of. I will need to create all-new promos for her and then I can re-submit her to Renderosity, hopefully as a renewed release like I did with D9S Lilla. Once again, I will keep you posted on her progress.
Here are a couple more previews of the previously announced new projects:
That’s all the previews I have for you so far for April. I do have other projects in mind that I want to do though. Tipol created a dynamic shirt to go with the jeans but I haven’t got the shirt yet. If I do get it, I would like to try to create some textures for it to go with my new jeans textures. I would like to create more clothing sets in general for La Femme, L’Homme, V4, etc. I also want to create some brand new artworks but those will come in time. I may look and see what unfinished projects I have leftover from 2019 and work or rework on those for a while. For now, that’s all the previews I currently have for you.
By the way, I am in the process of overhauling and updating my Patreon page with new and improved benefits, more consistent updates, a new Discord server with special roles for patrons, and much more. I’ve got it half updated at the moment but I’m planning on adding more. Stay tuned or go ahead and join up today and get all the new benefits when they arrive! Tiers start at just $2.50 per month and you can cancel at any time! I thank you for your consideration.
I also setup a Discord server for Dream 9 Studios if you want to chat about my art. Click here to access the server. You’ll need a Discord account to use it which is free to register for. You can use your browser or download the app, whichever you prefer. Patrons of every tier will be able to see my works in progress channel on Discord. The general public will be restricted to the “general” channel for now.
That’s all for this entry. Thank you for viewing!
