It’s Wednesday, which means there are 5 more PC+ items today. But before we even get to those, there’s a fresh batch of 9 products from the PAs at DAZ. (These acronyms are so familiar by now to me and other enthusiasts that I tend to assume everyone knows what I mean, but PA = Premiere Artist/Published Artist, i.e. an independent vendor; G2F is Genesis 2 Female; G2M is Genesis 2 Male.)
It’s all looking good today, but let’s start with Fantasy Cloth Wrap for G2F, because I know Shifting Images has built up quite a following (and most deservedly, too), and also it’s a product that will appeal to a lot of artists. It lets you clothe your favourite female character in fabric strips and ribbons, for a more modest version of a nude portrait that has an artistic edge to it. The fabric has a flowing appearance, as though caught by the wind, and has white and red versions with more or less translucency. I’ve never seen so many morph options, and you’ll get light presets and even reality materials with this one too. Amazing stuff, and it gets even better wit the add-on pack. Fantasy Cloth Wrap – A Splash of Colors includes 5 attractively patterned fabric variations in different colours. Lace, silk or leather… it’s all there.
A lovely partner for this set would be Masked Beauty, just released by PandyGirl. 6 variations on a shaped eye-mask with cut-outs, ranging from butterfly to asymmetrical, and one with chain detailing. These fit your free G2F base figure and the other female figures in the family, plus V4, and can be adjusted for other figures. G2F is also showing off her ink today with Inked Vol. 5 for Genesis 2. Even though the promo features girls, note that this product works with the G2M guys too! There’s a range of different tattoo styles included for torso, arms, ankles, fingers, even a face option.
Cathedral is a Phantasmagorical Scenes release that will suit those grander renders. A vaulted space that’s filled with light streaming through stained glass windows, it features decorative surfaces, several props, and includes light and camera presets. Or why not head for the Top of the World with bitwelder? This gorgeous skybox and terrace scene looks so peaceful, the yoga promo got it just right as this is an awe-inspiring spot for your characters to find themselves.
With Chair Time Poses for G2F with Morphing Chair by Slide3D, your characters can be at ease in the most ordinary situations (though maybe not doing the splits?). There are 20 poses and the chair will morph to realistically indent for each of them. The chair itself has 3 different material options for variety.
Do you have Photoshop? Painted is a brush set by Rajraja that offers many creative possibilities. It looks a lot of fun, with 80 different brushes, but you’ll have to see the promos to get a feel for what it can do.
Heading straight for the top of my to-buy list today is a new pack from Handspan Studios: HSS Fabric Shaders 1-Glamour. The name suggests there will be more, so we’d better start saving. What’s inside? A bumper collection of glitzy shader presets that look sensational. I can’t wait to get them and try them all out.
