    Once I get a few things squared away, I have something big coming on the horizon.

    I will probably be doing Lisa's fairy flowers next or the tulips.

    They should be soonish. I think HW is waiting for the big Tarzan release they have been completed since early July.

    Love this image, Lyne.

    NapalmArsenal, maybe I'm just missing it, but I can't tell if your gorgeous textures work in Iray or 3 Delight. Is it on the product pages somewhere?

    @Desertsilver

    The Jungle Heat textures as do all my textures work in both 3Delight and Iray as well as Superfly and Firefly render engines.
    One texture set will work in both render engines without bogging down your render times with heavy shaders.

    Lisa's Botanicals Daylily Model + Frills Texture Expanison - SubDivided Iray level 2 Sharp Edges and Corners. This is from the same texture set as the ones used by Lyne in the above in Poser PP2014. I do suggest looking at her magnificent creation on full view!! CWRW has also used several sets in the Whisper promos for the dayliles.

    Thanks for the quick reply, just went and bought the lilies--- they are wonderful work.

    Wow, I'm going to have to get that Iray veggie shader now too! Next week...

    @Desertsilver COOL! Thanks!! Enjoy and have fun with them!! I know I did creating them LOL ......

    Yeah, those shaders are really awesome. There should be another set out at some point, but I'm not quite sure when.

    Yap it's about that time again!

    Tulips textures for Lisa's Botanicals Tulips. Really early rough start right now haven't looked at the transmaps changed out the leaves/stamens or done the bumps. I'm looking at doing some pastels and maybe some parrot tulips, but will have to check out if I can do them on the transmaps.

    Thanks Flint and Miss B.

    Ok needs some input about bump settings and transmaps.


    I've used three different bump settings on each of the renders which one do you guys think looks best?

    These are the parrot version transmaps I can make them subtle or I can make them more extreme up to you guys as to how much or little you want. I still have to try the frills version.

    OK, as far as the bump settings go, I don't like the stronger bump on the tulip petals, but do like the stronger bump on the green leaves as the leaves, IRL, aren't as "delicate" as the flower petals themselves.

    As far as the transmap settings go, I like the last 2 (4 and 5) better than the first 3. In fact, the 3rd one made me think of alien plants with claws.

    Just my 2ยข FWIW. :)

    Okay...love the plain purple and the blue especially they're my favourites.

    I'm going to disagree with Miss B and say reduce the bump on the petals. Petals aren't smooth so you need some bump just less than what you have.

    I like the last two transmap settings best but I'm not seeing alien plants with claws...what I am seeing though is lots of different settings in the first three. Is there more than one transmap on those flowers?

    I really like the way these are developing and as I said absolutely love the plain colours. Have you thought of splitting these into two packs? A plain pack and then a fancier pack with all the patterns?

    Thanks for the input guys!

    The set with the different transmaps is just rather to show variety with them and how they would look together.

    Not sure if I will split them up.............. I will have to see, but have been rather kicking around the idea of possibly doing a release with pinks, reds, fuschias for around Valentine's Day with the parrot transmapped versions, and then the plain purple, yellow, blue, pink for around Easter. I do have some solid varieties in the works, but haven't hashed those out all the way yet as they keep looking rather flat.

    I also have the daffodils and crocus, but haven't pulled the templates on those as of yet that would go with the Easter theme, but those are sold packaged together so a double set essentially with two different models..
