Taking another little break

For those who drop by now and again to see what’s here, I’m taking a little time off to recharge and whatnot.

Be back later!

ISO: Heavily freckled male textures

12

I have Caleb M4/Genesis, Edinburgh M4, Ethnique Nathen (forgot him), and the V4 Male face from Bell A4, which I converted to M4, but none of them have freckles like this guy:

I was playing around with the male Bell texture on M4 and it really doesn’t even come close:

I’d settle for a female texture if it worked; I’ve adapted female textures to males before. So any suggestions?

Also, eyebrows are a pain in the butt. Why are male eyebrows so high on so many textures?

Kit-Bashing: Evil Candy Corn

The candy corn prop needs to be scaled up quite a bit, then inverted. It takes a little time to position the legs and arms of the other two figure props, but once they’re in place and parented to the candy corn you’re good to go. (BTW, I love the long nail morph on the Zombie Economics hands; I turned off the limits and made them into claws.) I used the sand prop instead of a rock but there are a ton of free (and commercial of course!) rock props as well as many styles of display props.

I tried an Iray render but it was way too grainy. Probably failed to adjust some setting. The glass looked very nice but the figure itself was too hard too see, especially at the bottom. I didn’t use any glass shader on the 3DL render; not sure if I have a decent one. Glass materials have always been a problem for me. Ugh.

Anyway, if anyone is so inclined to give this a try themselves, the candy corn texture is inside…

Bronze Age freebies

achilles

So now I have a G3M texture, yay! Ragnar was in the FastGrab for $6; don’t have Gianni 7 or the G3M Body Morphs, but that’s okay for now.

So if one has an Achilles, one might want to trot out some Bronze Age props! Not that there are very many of them, but Gazza at Renderosity’s Freestuff has a Boar Tusk Helmet and Tower Shield. Alas, it doesn’t look like he ever got around to making armor like the Dendra Panoply, but one takes what one can get when it comes to the Bronze Age.

I fell in love with The Iliad when I was fourteen, and so the Bronze Age and Trojan War has always been a thing for me. Even after all this time. 😀
