Poser Is Strange Sometimes ^_^

Here is another non-image post, but I promise I'll be doing more image posts as soon as I get that drive repaired (hopefully).


I don't really want to dominate this thread, but I might as well make another comment that caught my attention, based on my own 'hobby' of 3D 'art':

At the site called Renderosity, they recently recognized one of their exclusive content producers, and the one product they made that brought in the most revenue for the site over the entirety of 2016.

What was that product, you might ask?
Well, it is called Exnem Body Hair for G3 Females : Body Hair for G3 Female

So THIS was what brought in the most money for Renderosity over last year? Really?!?
Not any of the actual characters, or outfits, but Body Hair?!?!

To me, this pretty much proves that there are MANY people who are using Poser to produce erotica. I can't really think of any other reason someone would want this product (that being said, I have picked it up myself . It was on sale, and I mainly use it to make a female werewolf, or just to emulate the style of some artist I like [MalcolmD, InCase], even if I'm not into the body hair fetish myself).

Oh, well, the weird corners of the hobby I have chosen never cease to amaze me sometimes

Inner Workings Sunglass Vendor

There is a short accompanying the new Disney movie "Moana" called "Inner Workings": Inner Workings Short

In it there is one character that seems to have captured the attention of many Fanboys out there, despite the fact that she appears for less than perhaps 30 seconds in the entire short: The Sunglass Vendor: Sunglass Vendor 'Thicc' Meme

Although this might be the 'style' of the animator(s) for this short (I've noticed that many of the women have this exaggerated body type, and even the 'muscle man' our hapless hero encounters before meeting her), I personally think this borders on, if not passing, the fine line of 'Fetish' art.

I've commented before on some other artists who like these 'extreme' body proportions: Curvy Drow Priestess

and to me this is the same style, just in a Disney product :-)

Again, another 'pure' Daz Studio render.  I'm not too happy with the hair, had to cover up some 'poke thru' with it, and in the second image it looks like some is flying in her mouth, but I decided to leave it as is.

Orc Barbarian

Well, I'm still in the process of retrieving data from my damaged Poser drive; it will be more expensive than I thought, but not as much as many other places were quoting.  So, I am quite literally paying for my stupidity in not backing up data that represents nearly a decade of Time, Effort, and Money :-(

In the meantime, I can still use 'raw' Daz Studio, and slowly reinstall into Poser some of the recent files I have acquired, and this is the first result.

You may notice the very low polygon giant skull in the image; I have/had much better skull props, but just didn't feel like going through all of my downloads to find it.

I do like how this came out overall.  It combines 3 different outfits: One for the leather straps on the chest and torso, another for the armored 'corset', hip guards, and left gauntlet, and a third for the boots, 'shoulder pad', and right glove.

Thing about Daz Studio which I don't like is that this took several HOURS to render; something that Poser would have accomplished in probably less than an hour.

I'm still very much the amateur with Daz (or Poser, for that matter).  There is probably a way to increase rendering time without sacrificing resolution, but I'll have to look up some tutorials on it.

Out of Order....Again (*sigh*)

Well, looks like I won't be doing many images soon (unless its with Daz Studio).

Unfortunately, the portable drive I used to store most all of my Poser files got damaged beyond readability, and I was idiot enough not to have it backed up :x

Those files are worth enough to me that I may go through the expensive (for me) process of sending it to a data retrieval center.

Luckily for me I didn't store porn on the drive, so there's nothing there that could get me thrown in jail (although some of the poser folders have curious names, like "Naughty Parts", so that could raise a few eyebrows :oops:

Since I have been buying stuff for Daz Studio, I can make some renders using that program (and the stuff for it) exclusively, but they may turn out rather bare bones, but it should help me scratch my creative itch until I get my files back.

Until then don't expect much from me (although I haven't been doing much lately anyway, partly out of a lack of drive and just damn buying so much stuff that I never used yet  :upset: )

Armored Swordsteel

Well, here's my first image of the New Year, a fully armored rendition of a character I created for the online game Neverwinter called Kirstryd Swordsteel.

Awhile back I did an image of her in the nude:…

The main reason for that was because the particular 'Dwarf' height/body morphs I was using couldn't be used with clothing.

A couple of months ago, though, Poser 11 happened to go on sale for a vastly reduced price, so I picked it up as a 'christmas' gift to myself :-)

One of the new things it can do is scale clothing to the figure, kind of like how Daz Studio does (although not as well as Daz); so now I can actually put clothes on my Victoria 4 based 'short stack' characters :-).

 Oh, and if you ask "How does she fit those boobs under that Breastplate?"  Simple.... Magic :-)

Velma and the Beast

With the live-action version of the movie "Beauty and the Beast" due out soon, I was considering making my own versions of Beauty and the Beast.

However, laziness set in, and I just did this instead  (although I may still do a 'true' version in time).

Batman and Commissioner Gordon

A somewhat long rant about the origin of this image (and the "Killing Joke" animated movie) follows:

This is an image I made a little while back after seeing the Killing Joke animated movie.

I'm going to talk about that movie a little bit, so beware, SPOILERS ahead!!

In that movie, there was one thing that really upset fans of the character Batgirl, where, after having a fight with Batman over the status of their relationship (more or less), she decides to have sex with him on the rooftop!! :shocked:

Here's a youtube bit that talks about it in more detail: Killing Joke Revieiw

Of course, I'm of two minds on the subject: The 'Quagmire' part of my mind had no problems with the scene ("Gigggity!" :hump:).

The comic fan in me just really didn't see a reason for it though, other than to stress that this was an 'adult' story, and justify its "R" rating (though no nudity was shown).

I also understand why the first part of the movie focused on Batgirl/Barbara, so we would have more of a connection with her before THAT scene with the Joker later.  It seems to have fallen flat with most fans, though.

Now to where this image comes in.  A long while back I was a member of an erotic artist forum (now defunct), and some of the artist and writers got together and made a short erotic comic based in the DC Animated Universe, particularly dealing with the Batman family.

See above for the title page.
Since it was offered for free, here is a link to the entire comic: Forbidden Affairs Erotic Comic
For some reason, I could only find non-english versions of the black and white pages.

I will note that while I thought the story for the color pages was quite well done, the black and white pages just fall back on common nonsensical Porno tropes (not complaining really, but I did want to see the actual story continue).

This comic begins in the Batman Beyond future, with Terry confronting Barbara Gordon (now Police Commissioner of Gotham) about his past.

In classic Porno style, this leads to sex between Barbs and Terry (and makes just as much sense as the sex between her and Bruce in the movie, but this has the excuse of being a porno parody :roll:).

However, there is another scene that makes much more sense in the comic later on where, in short, a younger Barbara is staking out Bruce's mansion, where she spys Bruce and Diana (Wonder Woman) having an 'encounter'.  Despondent because she thought she and Bruce were in a serious relationship, she on the spot decides to have sex with Robin, who she had taken along for the stake out :shocked:

It was this scene that actually makes sense to me, believe it or not.  At that moment she was on an emotional roller coaster, and just wanted to do something to make the pain go away (and maybe convinced herself that this was a 'good' thing for Robin as well).  It was exceptionally good writing for what was essentially a Pornographic Parody comic.

Now, since I am not going to go into 'Shotacon' territory, I decided I was going to re-create the scene between elder Barbara Gordon and Terry.

As with many things lately though, my short attention span moved on before I could do more images, so this is the only result of it.

I am proud of my 'Batman Beyond' character, though :-)
