Beautiful young women with flawless skin and a perfect figure are a frequent sight in all the 3D stores. Who can resist the temptation to choose and customize a model to represent your idea of perfection? But there comes a time when you long for something different, a woman who has done more than pout on a magazine cover, or maybe a male figure to redress the balance. Today we’re in luck, as we get both of those wishes.
FWArt, Sabby, Fisty and Kayjay have formed a dream team to create a more mature woman. MeMoo HD has an unusual name (I’m sure there’s a story behind that one) but is an exciting character release. She does make a convincing older woman, without having been pushed to the extreme of being an old hag. Her Mrs Claus look is an inspired extra in this set. She can also be made plumper, or can have the HD removed to become middle-aged — again, with realistic results. All in all, a very impressive release and one that not only deserves buyer support, but is likely to get it just because it’s so good!
On the male side of things, Jepe’s Orso is making an entrance, and turning heads wherever he goes. This hirsute guy can also be made less hairy, but those brows are going to command everyone’s attention no matter what configuration of facial and body hair you add. His name means ‘bear’, by the way, and he was created using high quality photographic references. The fact that he is compatible with Michael 4, with Genesis and with Genesis 2 Male means he covers generations 4, 5, and 6 in one product. For that reason alone, I hope he’s a popular choice for everyone who could use a new hero for their renders or a posable model reference for their art.
If you have plenty people but never enough realistic contemporary backdrops, head straight for the Suburban Shopping Mall. This new product from FirstBastion has captured a familiar scene with 2 levels of a mall. Just the place for teens to hang out. FirstBastion has always been one of the most exciting examples of what can be achieved using the inexpensive Hexagon 2.5, which shows that dedication and talent are more the key to success than owning software costing thousands of dollars.
Also new today is a fun crochet style shader set from Denki Gaka which can create some new looks for old clothing and furnishings. A nice pair of platform shoes with a range of textures, along with a Dreamlight training package complete the line-up. If you enjoy Dreamlight’s comprehensive training videos, also take a peek at Fast Grab.
Today’s free products are both brought to us by another shader artist, Teresa Tyllo. Glassy World is an exciting new direction for her work, while Ornamental Walls & Ceilings creates some kaleidoscopic effects for ornate interiors or anything else you’d like to apply them to.

A late changeover yesterday for Fast Grab saw 6 new products getting 70% discount. I recommend Olympia 6, and the Pro bundle at 70% is a steal. Dreamlight’s training packages have 83% off today, making them an affordable way to pick up some great tips. (The prices in yesterday’s post were correct at time of publishing, but Dreamlight has since gone on sale in HolliDAZ, making these savings stack.)
|Artist||Product||You Pay||You Save|
|DAZ Originals||Olympia Pro Bundle||$37.49||$84.47|
|Dreamlight||Hexagon Revisited – Create Models and Money||$17.45||$79.50||Dreamlight||Film Noir 3D Style – Back To Black & White||$14.21||$64.74|
