Oh look, yet another new, young, European, female character. :yawning_face:

Finally a new men’s piece of clothing is released and … aw hell I don’t know.

Complex layered outfit for G8F doesn’t have dForce but does have a boat-load of material zones.

Set of three headpieces could really use some dforce for those veils.

Set of (4) complementary color schemes for the Blackwood Outfit.

Set of 60 vintage silk Iray fabric shaders is useful for re-texturing and is also a merchant resource.

Huge set of props and poses to clean up those dirty and nasty G8 females of yours. Guys apparently never get dirty. :slight_smile:

Collection of 34 HDRIs and several camera presets for those looking for 1-click mediocre results.

Props take such minute adjustments to work with both genders, there’s no reason not to.

HDRI portrait lighting is never worth it. Anyone can splash spots on a black background and call it an HDRI lightset, but it’s inflexible and doesn’t allow for walls as scenery. And more often than not, the lighting is just poorly placed. Lighting is much simpler than people think if you just follow the basic guidelines for a 1,2,3 or 4 light system. I typically use a 3 light system. More than 4 and the added complexity is not always worth it.

Nothing really. The rave outfit is disappointing, and the textures seem rudimentary. the shirt for example seems to blend right into the pants. The promos are indisctinct This is why people say men’s clothing does not sell . The platform boots are cute though.

The Z clean set- Well, I would’ve bought it with men’s poses included. I will buy it someday, since I do tend to buy all of Zeddicus’s poses, but I can wait for it to go on sale. No rush, on it.

The hdris are not visible to me in the store at all. I even tried an incognito session. Its literally gone. I don’t mind HDRI, especially when supplemented with additional lights.

Oh, I am wrong, I see photography masters. I just thought it was another Vicky product. My bad.
