Day 9: New Skies Ahead, Aave Nainen Dress and Dreamlight Tutorial

It’s the 9th day of the DAZ PA 2014 sale and it’s interesting to see how it’s shaping up. Some common themes are emerging, which is maybe an insight into what kinds of things sell well even when the market seems full of them. That doll-faced, barely-out-of-teens female characters are popular is no surprise, but personally I find it hard to tell them apart after a while. This is just a general observation based on recent female characters and not a criticism of OziChick’s new release, Tatianna, whose youthfulness and lovely natural eyebrows will make her a great character for morphing into even younger characters.

Skimpy or clingy clothing too just seems to keep on selling, even though it takes a lot more work to model clothes that flow away from the body in a natural way. That’s why I always welcome a new Aave Nainen release, such as her Cutie Pie Dress today. This modest and pretty dress has a huge range of drape morphs that work with different pose collections, and Aave has added in additional ones for the Zev0 G2F Growing Up shapes.

However, don’t overlook the Dryade forest outfit because of the skimpiness in the main promo, as I nearly did myself. For some reason they chose to strip away the leaf ‘skirt’ which not only adds a little more modesty but is nicely put-together too. The pretty flower and vine detail on this outfit is eye-catching.

Something else I also always find useful are good skydomes, so the BWC Skies 2 package today from Sedor will be well worth a look.

I hope you find plenty to fill up your punch card this week. You can check it at any time if you are logged in on DAZ by visiting this year’s PA Sale page.
