Only two items from Renderosity — 50% off over there is a good deal.
I don’t do much in the way of beefcake renders, but the body hair set has partial presets — forearms, hands, lower legs, etc. — which makes it more useful for my needs. If not for those partials I probably would have passed on it.
I’ve had the brow bundle in my wishlist for ages, so glad I finally cleared that one out. Also, the brows should work okay on other figures with some manual adjustments. Not sure how autofit clones would work with these.
Slowly but surely increasing my Genesis 3 content library.
I’m trying to buy only from my wishlists, and from there only those I consider top priority. That’s twelve products at DAZ and six each from Renderosity and Hivewire. (My DAZ wishlist is five pages long, so it gets doubled.)
For the heck of it, here are my (current) top priority items from each store:
DAZ: Genevieve 7; Kalea 7; Wild Wind Hair G8F; IBL Master; Bblythe Hair G8F; BOSS Pro Lights for Iray; Killmonger Hair & Beard G3M/G8M; Lashes Utilities G2/G3/G8; Ultimate Pose Mixer; The Church Props; The Gothic Library; Victorian Deco 2 Iray
I have a few more Genesis 3 base figures in my wishlist but Genevieve 7 and Kalea 7 edged ahead because 1) Genevieve looks a bit older and 2) Kalea pairs with Kimo 7, and I bought him a few weeks ago. Kenji 7, Rune 7, and Mei Lin 7 will have to wait their turn.
I buy a lot of hair props since they’re pretty easy to refit to various figures. The iray lights seem like a nice basic set to have on hand, especially since my collection of iray lights is on the thin side. I really like that the lashes utility is for multiple generations; makes it a lot more versatile. The scene/prop sets are all for render ideas I have in mind.
The foal is the last major morph for the HW Horse I need to pick up. My HW Horse also has no gear. I figure I’d use the western saddle most, which makes it the one to buy first, and a tack conversion kit for all my older Mil Horse gear would be very useful. I hate posing hands, so yay for hand for pose sets! I have a few render ideas in mind for which the vintage bicycle would be perfect. I like the body types for Dawn and am slowly collecting them.
I love that cat saddle. It’s for the Mil Cat but probably wouldn’t be too hard to fit to the HW House Cat. And maybe even the old House Mouse? I don’t have anything liked Shrouded; I can see lots of uses for it and it could be adapted to other figures without much trouble. I really like the Helios/Kraven set and they’re the kind of textures that would work well on kids too. Both hair props are realistic-looking and pretty. The clothing set is versatile in itself, and parts could also be swapped around with other outfits. Those G3F/G8F duo sets certainly help to increase my paltry Genesis 8 content.
