In Store and planning some things.

Today my new set of poses were released in my store at Hivewire, actually, yesterday but I live in a different timezone so for me it was today.
I made these poses a few years ago for Michael4 & Kids4 and people seem to really like them. Since I work mostly with the figures from Hivewire I planned on doing them again as soon as there was a child character that could take the place of Kids4.

Diva is a beautifull character to work with, made for Hivewire Dawn by Pendraia Fae, you can find Diva for Dawn HERE.
I had to convert the poses from Michael4 & Kids4 to Dusk and Diva, that was a bit harder then I ancticipated but they are finally here in store.

It's a nice set of duo-poses that compliments my first set of Father and Child Poses I made for Dusk and BabyLuna. And though these poses are mostly about a little girl and her relationship with her dad, there are some poses in there for father and son aswell.

Writing my blog about my latest release, I wandered through all my retired items I still have on here. Re-creating these older poses for new figures made me think of all the poses I had made in the past. Esspecially those I made for Pranx 1.

Like "Shake a Tail", the duoposes "Together" or the set of expressions "Pranxious". They were created years back and the figure is no longer optainable. I traced the items back as far as 2010!
I have been thinking of slowly offering these for free here on my blog as an exclusive freebie.

I will have to create some new promo's and it won't happen over night but I will let you all know when they can be downloaded. I asked some advice about this from a good friend, to see if it would be suitable to release them for free now, after all this time, or if I should wait a little longer.
But we both agree that since the main figure hasn't been available anymore for some time now and these items are almost 10 years old, it would be okay.

So keep an eye out for my exclusive freebie page......

What I've been up to....part 7

Well, it's been a while and things are bit weird to say the least. The whole world is still very much affected by this new virus. And though we are allowed to get about, there are some rules and protocols in place wich do require some adjustment and patience. Things take a little longer and move a bit slower then what we have become used to.

Still, while I was working on my new project, wich is also moving slower then I normally work, I discovered that I had been a contributing artist at Hivewire now for 5 years.
That means I've been into Poser for.....well, time has flown. I can remember downloading Poser 6. Now I'm at Poser 11.3 and I am seriously considering whether I should upgrade to the next version, wich will undoubtedly come. I'm not sure if I will, I have celebrated my 54th birthday this month and since we are remodelling our caravan, my interest in computers has declined. Well, only for my own entertainment and relaxation I go online these days. I miss creating Art and playing silly games.

But this 5th Anniversary at Hivewire, I couldn't let it pass so I decided to put on a Sale. With all this suffering and sadness that is going around I've decided to have a 40% discount - wich can be more if you use your reward points - on my entire store at Hivewire.

For a limited time - untill the 25th - everything is 40% off so go and have a look by clicking the image. Of course the Mother and Child poses will be free untill the end of the month. They will remain part of the Stay home - Spread Hope challenge untill the 31th of May.

For those of you who haven't heard, there are some awesome freebies you can download. They do like you to create some images with them and participate in the challenge.

Just click the image above to go to the page directly and have a look of what it's all about. Join in and have some fun.

Stay safe and look after each other!

What I've been up to....part 6

The world is really becoming a strange place. Trying our best to keep our distance and looking out for one another in these scary times. And also trying our best to maintain some sort of normal.

I hope all of you are enjoying the free items at Hivewire that are so generously donated by alot of vendors there and I hope some of you are also have fun creating Art with the poses I donated.
In the meantime I've been busy with my next store item, duo-poses for Dusk & Diva.
Daily Life-Fathers Vol.2 and of course after they have been created in Poser, I also save them in DazStudio.

It's not that difficult to save a pose made in Poser in Daz. I know that applying the pose in DazStudio tends to distort the feet. For that I have a Genesis Fix Hands and Feet Script that seems to work fine with the Hivewire figures aswell.

I have managed to get all the duo-poses into DazStudio and now it's up to the testers to check and whether I should correct some mistakes. The Dancing pose is still very much my favorite but that is because of my own childhood memories. This did spark the idea for these poses.

Free content I may add, free untill May 31st! In exchange for these free items they ask you to join in a Render Challenge that will be open to May 31st aswell.

I think you should go and check this out, rumor has it new items will be added soon so I'm sure this will be worth your item and effort.

Have fun!

In store and other stuff....

I am very proud to announce that King of the Forest, for the Hivewire Mule Deer, has been released in my store at Hivewire3D. It has been a challenge creating these but it has become a nice extensive set of poses I think.
All in all there are 10 Single FullBody Poses, 5 Duoposes, a total of 19 Partial Bodyposes and various defaults. I have included the partial poses to help people create their own poses for the Mule Deer.

I must say that I am pleased the way the duoposes came out, it was quite a thing to get them the way I wanted. The antlers were a bit of a problem since I absolutely didn't want them to poke through each other. I wanted them to interlock, as they do when deer fight each other.

That was a bit of a challenge to get the heads & neckparts to pose exactly so that the antlers would be interlocked, maybe scraping each other but never poke through. I think these were the most complicated poses I have made so far.
The partial poses are made for the FrontBody, the HindBody and the Head&Neck. They are to help people create their own poses to suit their Artwork. I don't know if I may create some extra's or these poses to be fitted for the various species of deer like the Stag or the Caribou that have been released.

In the meantime I'm still working on duoposes for Dusk & Diva. I still have 3 duoposes left to create before I also save them in DazStudio.

This set is a bit tricky to create since they were originally made for Michael 4 and Kids 4 but I think I will have this set finished soon aswell. I don't know when these will be ready for testing though since real life is also demanding my attention.

What I've been up to....part 5

We have a caravan, a beautifull caravan at a recreation-park where we spend most of the spring- and summer months. Usually we stay there from april 'till november and we travel to work from there.
But it's an old caravan so we are busy redecorating it and bringing it into the 21th century. Therefore we have build a new bathroom in there the past months and it's now up to me to revamp the kitchen.
The budget for a new kitchen has to grow first so I'm painting the old cabinets in a new an lighter color.

In the meanwhile I'm still creating poses for the Hivewire Mule Deer Buck and today I have finished the corrections the testers gave me and I have rendered out the promo's.

Time to load the set up to my store for reviewing. It will be a big set with at least 10 Single Poses and 5 Duoposes but that's not all. It will also include a total of 19 Partial Poses, partials for the FrontBody, the HindBody and the Head&Neck. Of course there are also a number of Defaults included. The poses are for Poser 11.2 and of course for DazStudio 4.10

I've also managed to release a freebie for LaFemme, maybe not my most favorite character but she came with the upgrade so I thought I might aswell spend some time on creating some basic simple poses for her.

I don't know if I will make  more poses for LaFemme, after all, I spend most of my time on the figures from Hivewire. Anyhew, the freebie for LaFemme can be found at my freebie page at Renderosity; Pommerlis's Freestuff
It includes 5 poses and their mirrored version. I was never one for creating only one pose in a set. I always have at least 5 Single and 4 Duoposes.

Next project will be finishing the set for Hivewire Dusk & Diva and of course painting the kitchen in our caravan.
