Steampunk Rufus y’all!

Not a weekly render thing, just for fun!

Rufus/Meow Morphs with the Siamese texture (which I see is not showing up as Purchased for me, ugh) and Cat Casuals sneakers. I finally found a use for the Extraordinary League for G2F accessories that were a weekly freebie way back when. Also made use of Steam Pilot V4/G4, the wrench from DM Time Shadows (which I bought while it was at Renderosity), the free CogBase and free Movie Hero Vest for Rufus.

Hmmm, I should do something with the old Toonimals too, considering I bought the Toonimal Kitty, Toonimal Puppy, the CDI Toony Cat Morphs, the SS Toonimal Mappak for both the kitty and the puppy, and even the Toonimal Playtime Poses.

Did do this render, quite some time ago:

The toonimals are really old figures, but I still think they’re cute. They’d probably benefit from subd and improved materials. If I had the full version of LAMH (it’s in the wishlist) I’d try to fuzz ’em up a bit.


Edited to add: First test run in DS4.10. Used a bit of displacement on the fur. Something looks a little weird in UV mapping of the chest and (oops, forgot to hide the chest fur) bottoms of the paws. The little eyes also seem kind of…tubular? Still, not too bad!

Aw, you’re kinda cute, ancient toon kitty!

Toon Gramps and the Granny add-ons

I wasn’t only playing around with dragons and balloon dogs this weekend! I’ve had both of these products for a while and only just now checked to see if they could swap clothing. Their respective wardrobes are on the thin side, so it seemed worth exploring.

They’re so cute!

Since Granny is a custom morph of Gramps — both Granny and New Age Granny are still at RDNA, though I don’t know for how long — the clothing switcheroo project went pretty well except for the Mad Scientist outfit.

The long coat deforms at the hip joint. But after fiddling with smoothing, morph transfer, and SubD — and doing a bit of postwork — it’s not a total lost cause. Granny can be a mad scientist too! She just needs a toon cat wearing goggles…

I need more poses for Gramps/Granny. Suppose this means I may have to make some eventually. 🙂

Sanzi’s Momilita

I forgot to mention this before, but Sanzi has a new toony doll freebie: Momilita. Includes the figure, outfit, poses, and hair. The figure has a “cat” morph that is dialed in for the ears, whiskers, and tail. I took her for a test in DS4:

Applying the smoothing modifier slightly distorts the hair around the ears, so I didn’t do it for the cat morph. The style poses for the hair’s front bangs don’t work in DS, but the bang parts are all separate object files so all you need to do is manually hide/unhide them etc. to get the different looks. The twin tail style morphs work fine. (The hair also has a fit for Sanzi’s free toon cat, Momimomi.) The cat tail isn’t poseable, as far as I can tell, but it comes pre-posed.

She comes with a number of expression morphs too.

Cute free outfit for classic Sadie

Over at Renderosity: Tempest for Sadie

jumper and headless Hester not shown 🙂

According to the description, it was a PA product at the DAZ store and is now free! (I wish more PA’s did this with old products.) It includes an outfit, character texture and morph, and a headless doll prop.

It’s a cute outfit, but it’ll need a little work after downloading. The file paths are wrong, a problem which is easy enough to fix. There are no textures included, but plenty of material zones for all the objects except the headless Hester doll. She’s only a single material zone and so that one will need texturing work beyond quick-n-easy seamless tile material presets.

Here’s the template for Hester:
