Today’s Promo: A catch-up sale.
Today’s Releases: Guys get a new figure; some magical foliage; a weird alien canyon; a new, young, European, female character; punkish hair for women; and gauged ears for women.
Apparently, in DAZ’s World, men don’t have gauged ears. Ridiculous.
Todays’ Song: “Rise Up” by Heather Small
Update: Avoid this character, and if you’re already bought it consider getting a refund.
This is a complete figure, hair, and outfit set released today by Vyusur.
Mick is a handsome character, and Vyusur definitely puts in a lot of details into their releases. His body is exquisitely sculpted, and he’s quite handsome.
This release includes not only the character, hair, beard, pants, shirt, boots, briefs, a vest, oh and some poses.
Several different material options are provided but sadly no genital maps are listed.
Still buying. He’s a normal scaled character so third-party solutions can be used.
Do not buy.
The Magical Place by JeffersonAE is a set/ environment full of bushes and long grasses, and moss, and rocks, and trees.
It’s a quiet and serene place for your figures to relax and reflect, or maybe to have a picnic or a romantic interlude.
It’s not a big set, but there’s a panoramic diorama that encircles it that provides a background no matter what your camera angle is.
I say this all the time, you can never have too many environments to put your figures in.
So for that reason, I’m buying!
Denki Gaka brings us an alien world set/ environment.
It’s a strange canyon with curves and emissive features. It looks something more constructed and created by nature. But it’s cool, and will provide a cool backdrop for your renders. Especially if you’re looking for a sci-fi/ cyberpunk type background.
I’m buying. I really like this set, even if I disagree with it’s name (and it’s description) which both sound to me like someone trying to force a square peg into a round hole somewhat.
Oh look, another new, fit, young, European, female character from Digital Touch.
She has separate head and body morphs, 3 skin-tone options, 12 eye colors, 12 lip colors, 10 separate makeup options, 21 different nail color options. No genital maps are listed.
I’m beginning to sound like a broken record, I know. But I literally have 5 characters that look very similar to her already in my Content Library. I don’t need any new female characters, and neither do you, probably.
That being said, she’s a pretty character.
But it’s going to be a “no” for me.
WillDupre gives us some side-shaved dforce hair for your G8 women that looks something out of the punk bands of the 1980s or the cyberpunk styles of the 21st Century.
The hair features a dozen or so different movement and adjustment morphs and about 50 or so different material options for the hair (shaved and not) and skullcap.
Huge fan of Will Dupre and this hair is something else. I love the fact that it’s dforce enabled. Movement and adjustment morphs simply don’t provide realistic hair draping on a a figure.
So this is a definite must buy.
Another awesome wig for your G8 female characters from WillDupre in the form of an asymmetrical wedge cut hair.
Featuring several different movement and adjustment morphs, material settings for hair thickness, 3 skullcap options, and 12 hair color options.
The hairstyle on these wigs looks sharp and would be perfect for any late 20th century, 21st century, and beyond type figure or setting.
Next up we have some gauged ears morphs and props for your G8 females from WillDupre again.
Gauged ears and ear stretching has been practiced in one shape or another since ancient times and is popular in African, South Asian, and Western cultures.
This set includes new geografted earlobes to replace the earlobes on your figures, several different types of jewelry, and a wide and varied assortment of textures and shaders for the jewelry.
Since ear stretching has existed since time immemorial this set can probably be used in a wide variety of non punk/ cyberpunk type settings. You’ll just have to simplify the jewelry materials or make your own.
And that’s it for today. I hope you found this useful. Please let me know your thoughts (the good, the bad, and the ugly!) and until next time, please take care of yourself.
