Most of us have some other artist we look up to with worshipful envy.  Personally I've always felt this way about smay.  If you've seen the original zombie for Genesis, or Boris's hands with the HD on, you've seen the exquisite level of sculpting art that regularly appears in this store.  I think I own everything smay has done since I joined this market.  I use the Temptation and Drama expressions in every set of promos, and for 3D smoke in a scene no one has ever equaled Fire And Smoke.

So of course when I saw the wounds pack today - which works on both sexes and any body texture - I squealed, fell over, and bought it.

I also bought Muñeca ("Doll") and Lla Llorona ("She Who Weeps"), because if FWSA is going to keep doing awesome creaturey things I want to encourage that as much as possible, and I love ghosts.  And creepy dolls.

I'm working on Decapitations for Renderosity today.  It is focused just on the head removal, not all of the limbs like Severed Man, lest anyone think I'm trying to compete with Rawn (never a good idea anyway).  Geografted stumps are surprisingly not as hard as I feared.  I may end up doing my amputee freebie after all.  I do plan to do a Broken freebie for that quintessential zombie "broken ankle/shin" look when I get time to put it together.

I'm a 3d modeler, texturer and rigger. I work with making conforming items, characters and props for the Genesis figures in DAZ Studio.

My DAZ store:

And at Renderosity:…

Regrettably, I am no longer able to accept commissions for models. I just have too many projects going at any one time.

I hope I'm not bothering you, but I have a question.

As an experiment in sculpting clothing, I created a pair of boots. During the sculpting process, I had Genesis in the Victoria 4 morph, as this boot is intended for females. But now when I'm trying to use the transfer utility, I can't seem to get it to work correctly. The boots won't mesh with properly with the Genesis model. It's like...when I apply Victoria 4 at 100%, they go to 200% on that same morph.

Is there anything I can do to correct this problem? Or do I need to go back and start from scratch?

You can't make clothing to a morph and use regular TU settings.  It has to be made to the Genesis base (this is true of both G1 and the G2's).

If you want clothing to only fit the Victoria 4 morph, you'll need to use a different procedure.  I never have done this, so I'm not familiar with it, but if you ask on the forum someone will be able to help you.

Hello! I just bought the singers of Chzor bundle and think it's great, thank you. BUT I also bought the Ball Joint Doll, firstly for Genesis, which I returned as it seemed to need V5 (which I don't have) and then for G2. I still can't make it work properly. I'm unsure which things to apply and in which order, and most seem to need V5  (eg: /data/DAZ 3D/Genesis/Base/UV Sets/DAZ 3D/GenePool/Victoria 5.dsf) or say they are missing parts, even though I installed it via the Daz install manager. If I apply a texture, eg Calais or actually any other one, then the ball joints are left white.  I am using Daz Studio 4.6 pro. Could you point me in the right direction of what items to use for what and what order and also, DO I need V5 - which is G1 and not G2 (I have V6) (and, sorry, but if so why doesn't it say so in the promo?)
If I need V5 I will have to return it again to Daz as I can't afford that on top of the BJD as well :-(
thank you so much for your help and sorry to 'stalk' you on Deviant Art! :-)

You don't need V5.  Just ignore the message.  The set uses the V5 UV, but that UV is built into G2F by default; the message is caused by a saving error that was supposed to be fixed by now (QA told me that it was, in fact, so I don't know why it's in the DIM files).

You have to apply the texture to the ball joints as well as to the figure, because the ball joints are a separate figure themselves.  You might also need to change the UV set the ball joints are using in the surfaces tab so that they match up to the figure texture.  If you do this, you can use any textures with it.  Hopefully QA did apply the torso UV update to the joints; if not I'll need to address that with them since that also happened a long time ago.

It is teasing, but not in a cheesy way ^^
