WIP: Dusk dial morph 02

Still fiddling with this one, but mostly there. Requires the Dusk starter morphs, head/face morphs, and head morphs resource kit, just like the Dawn dial morph WIPs I recently posted.  He’s wearing Tempesta3D’s Marcello texture, with Aram Hair by Joanna/StudioArtVartanian (missing her very much.)

Below is the first attempt test render, which I did while playing with the Alex Hair M4 by Lady Littlefox. Having trouble with this hair prop; getting file errors for the main duf file (hazards of changing file locations!) and OMG it takes forever to render! But I was so excited to see it because I immediately thought: “Ooooh, now I can do Alex Row fan art!” I’m not really into fan art, but still fangirly over Alex Row.

Oddly, my autofit no longer works as it used to after I reinstalled the DS-updated Dawn/Dusk/Luna files. 😕 Usually DS asks what’s being converted — pants, shirt, boots, gloves, skirt etc — and I no longer get that option. Argh!

Anyway, I wasn’t happy with his mouth so I worked on it a little more — and continue to be frustrated that there is no morph dial to lower or raise the nose. (There are a number of face morphs I wish were available, but working with what’s available here.)

Probably the final version, wearing 3D Universe’sAxel texture:

Axel’s skin is a bit more painterly, so it’s the next best thing to a no texture render. Then I gave CWRW’s Taka texture a try:

There’s some texture stretching under the nose, unfortunately, that makes the stubble look more like a thin mustache.

In the end, I guess he’s kind of the Dusk version of Hugh M4 (which, I realized much later, looks an awful lot like my old college boyfriend):

Going to do one more face dial, then get to work transferring the parameter values over to Poser.
