Future project stuff

I wanted to do a freebie for the dieselpunk/retro futuristic theme but had trouble coming up with ideas. I’ve decided to do several small pose sets inspired by pulp fiction covers. Cheesy, but fun!

Maybe three or four pose sets, with mirrors if applicable, for M4/V4, the various Genesis figures, and Dawn/Dusk. Possibly Sadie/Sam and Cookie/Chip too.

While I’m putzing around with poses I’d also like to start something for the HiveWire figures. It would be lovely if I could get a few other folks to participate, though I’m not sure how to go about this. There aren’t many 3D-related freebie blogs these days and I’m also not so good at the whole forum participation thing.

Kettu, are you still working on your Dawn/Dusk morph project?

My rationale for this? I’ve always had a soft spot for underdogs.

Ideas and suggestions welcome!

Another freebie website gone

Ah, the ebb and flow — Chris Cox’s blog, with many interesting freebies, appears to be gone (thanks to Nik for the heads up!) The Wayback Machine has archived a number of the zip files here.

Happy Holidays!

I was going for a vintage 50s holiday card look. Here’s the stylized 50s V4 dial morph; you’ll need both Morphia and V4’s Morphs ++. There are two body versions: the first is shorter and broader through the chest (above) and the second is taller and thinner. Dial morph only, no textures, though I used the REC Toon Tones for Gen4.

A few places to haunt for holiday freebies:

Not free, but a pretty good bargain:

Mec4D’s Santa for Genesis. The TOU are more restrictive than most purchased content, but if you’re just messing around with stuff for yourself, it’s a nice and inexpensive Santa set. (There’s also a Dawn version, which I also own.) Fitting it to other shapes is hit-or-miss — the chest area folds can deform — but looks pretty good with a bit of extra effort and, if necessary, a little tweaking in postwork.

Her chest area required some postwork. 😛

And because I was in a holiday rendering mood, one more!

I wanted more gravity on the front part of the tree but will assume it just bounced up as the VW went over a bump in the road.

Oh, and I’ll have a few freebies over at Fantasy Attic for the HiveWire family.

Edited to add: A non-postworked preview of the 50s V4 stylized character, this time with the taller and thinner torso option:

Using the transfer morph feature in DS4 allows clothes to fit even the more extreme shapes to V4’s body. Adding mesh smoothing and subdivision to Morphia also improves the look of the figure. I forgot to mention that her eyeballs should be nudged forward a bit; I think I set the Z Translation dial to -0.10 for each.
