New Genesis 2 Characters, Sci-Fi Craft, and 2015 Bird Contest

Some of the week’s promotions have now ended, leaving us eagerly awaiting new releases to fill the void. Fortunately, there are 5 new ones today to tempt us.

First, a couple of characters. Ryk for Brodie has what struck me as an odd main promo, but don’t pass by this ethnic young male too quickly — a dark-skinned youth is a rare skin texture indeed and one that will give you more variety for youngsters. He comes with 4 different head shapes and 2 body shapes. Admittedly, I’m not crazy about the eye makeup (it’s nicely done, just not a look I’d use) but it’s optional, and what’s great about Ryk is all the choices he gives you. Note that you will need to own Brodie to use the materials as well as the morphs.

Eliza for G2F is an Artemis3d woman and a good example of this artist’s character style while bringing her own unique look to that family. She has a squarer jaw than her predecessors and a more natural look to the mouth. She’d make a great impression as a cover girl or catwalk model, especially when used with one of her striking makeup choices. Needless to say, her figure will be perfect no matter how dressed up or down this model is.

EmmaAndJordi are going for cute and quirky with their new hair and hat set. Lala Hair and Kitty Bowler is a fashionable bob haircut twinned with, yes, a bowler hat with kitty ears. You can of course just use the hair alone to expand your styling choices, or with the shaped hat, or go for full-on cuteness with the cat face detail on the hat too. The hair has 31 different colour options and also 31 morphs, plus there are fabric options for hat, ribbon and optional fur detail. I love that EmmaAndJordi put so much work into each and every product to make them adaptable for every need.

Ansiko thinks it’s time we returned to the harem, and I have a feeling there won’t be much protest. Especially not when presented with this vendor’s Harem Poses for G2F, with its 36 poses and 17 fun props. Both the props and poses will be useful for a wide range of settings and stories, so while they work perfectly with the Harem by Ansiko, they are in no way limited to it. For instance, the 15 pool poses could be adapted to any pool or bathing scenario.

Finally, a complete change of mood with Sci Fi Cruiser by The DigiVault. Impressive detail is paired with meticulous texture work for a large-scale craft that’s bound to make an impact in your space renders.

Any of the day’s offerings will earn you that 20% discount in the Avalanche promotion, stacking with the 20% from previous days to a total of 80% off tomorrow’s Good and Evil bundle. Faveral’s birthday sale is still on too, but will end soon, so don’t delay if you want to treat yourself to one of his works of art.

HiveWire3D Sale and Contest

You can also get something special right now from Hivewire 3D where the Birds & Botanicals Sale has begun. With 88 products each from bird artist Ken Gilliland and botanical artist Lisa, you’ll be spoiled for choice. Oh and make sure you enter the Open Rendering Season Contest 2015 (details at HiveWire: http://hivewire3d.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?20-Official-Hivewire-3D-Contests). It’s one of the most fun contests around and always good to show Ken and the birds some support… the prizes are amazing too. I did well in the 2014 Open Rendering Season Contest, which I entered as a distraction from a nasty bout of flu, so I’ll be cheering you on all the way if you do enter this year.
