Nearly there. How did your budget hold up this month? I was doing OK but the DAZ Original People sale was too good to miss, especially with the $10 off.
On to day 27 and let’s see what’s new to the 3d art world today. There’s no real theme going on the March Madness 2014 Event for Day 27, but a nice selection for you to choose from to grab your last few ‘punches’. You’ll get to spend these reward points next week.
My money is on there being a new Genesis 2 Male figure release to round off the sale or start April with a bang. I’m also going to guess (yes, it’s an ‘educated guess’) that he’ll be the kind of guy who will look great in Lorn, a skimpy warrior outfit from Dumor3D. Skimpy it may be, but with 9 separate wearable items it is also versatile and will be good for mixing and matching with other outfits too (‘kitbashing’).
RawArt is well known for his amazing creations. I’m not into monsters, but even I can’t resist some of his characters. He has a way of giving them real personalities. Their expressive faces can inspire all sorts of stories, and while they look menacing, many of them seem to me to have a lovable side. The HD Rock -n- Troll gives you all this in high definition. As always, RawArt has done a fantastic job with the promos so take a look.

If heroic and mythical scenes don’t grab you and you’d rather create unique beauties with your Genesis 2 female characters, that’s also possible. The Handspan Studios and Thorne partnership has already brought us many fairy and doll-like female creations, plus those useful head and body morph creator kits. Their newest Mixed Morph Resource Kit is for G2F characters, helping you to shape your Genesis 2 women into fairies or human characters of your own design. Plus, if you need more choice when it comes to skin textures, Slosh’s new utility will let you use Stephanie 5 and Aiko 5 UV-mapped skin textures on your Genesis 2 girls.
Dumor3d has a pair of strappy sandals with 12 different material options for your 3d women to strut their stuff in. Just take them off at the door of Predatron’s Dance Studio add-on for his new Loft 4 Lease — it converts the loft into a rehearsal space with mirrored walls and props.
Today Only Discounts on Selected Items
If you didn’t pick up Loft 4 Lease in time and want to get it with this expansion pack, here’s your chance. Some other popular releases from this month are back in this section too, including the Domina Bundle, Jack Tomalin’s Rural Chateau Bundle and the Viking Village Bundle from Faveral. I imagine that those Wet, Sweat and Rain skin maps by Flipmode for G2F were also a hit. Pick them up if you regretted missing them the first time round.
Growing Up for Genesis 2 Females and V6 is a handy set of morphs that will let you create your own girl characters from this latest generation. For something different, go under the sea with Gardens of Poseidon — a bundle of 120 coral reef and seabed plants, creatures and props.

Artist Store Sales: Save 40% Today
4 new stores to the Artist Sales today, joining RawArt and the artists from yesterday.
I’ve mentioned Slosh before as someone who does innovative work and who has made much-loved shapes and textures from previous generations usable with Genesis 2. Thorne is another artist whose work helps many of us get more from the DAZ Original characters. Besides her resource kits, she has a range of characters, often with a big-eyed faerie look to them.
Dumor3D began with pose collections and is now adding fantasy warrior outfits for Genesis 2 to the mix. Meanwhile, Tim Payne may be a new name for DAZ Studio and Poser users, but will be more familiar to Carrara users who are enjoying his skies and lightdomes. If you picked up Carrara 8.5 Pro in a recent sale, make Tim’s store one of your next stops.
