You're funny. You get it don't you? I mean the waiting and all, the small company and what not. It is what it is right? The trouble is that I have sooo many models of animals and breeds as morphs from our core animals. Many have been waiting on the shelves for years now. I made up a big list to give to Lisa, and even I was surprised at just how many we have. The challenge comes when they have to be put into the pipeline for rigging and map work. That is clearly where the waiting and patience begins. Still for some, I don't model fast enough to get critters or figures out in time for folks. But I can continue to model, as I do, and many will still have to wait. The thing is, I do what I'm good at, and for the most part that is modeling, creating morphs, and UV work. Those are my bread and butter areas. And I choose to share my work in progress screen grab efforts with folks here. But when they are shared, then the anticipation starts from folks like you, which is great, but also disappointing I'm sure for the waiting time.I check here sometimes twice a day hoping the follow on breeds finally start releasing, bought daz dog II hoping to make the wait easier, but the expression on it drives me batty! It's in the eyes. the placement could be slightly off, but for sure they are oversized, giving a goofy puppy like and even sometimes human look to the dog expression. Even with the added pose-ability, to me it is 2 steps forward and 2 steps back with regard to daz dog 1. no comparison at all to the hive wire dog.... if you want a retriever in every render. heck! im still waiting on the hive deer family, the hive bull. and others. I know smaller company + higher quality= longer waiting. Daz dog release news+ purchase package =additional trips to hivewire dog thread.
I have to know that our Puppy and Sparky's newborn puppy are in good hands with the master rigger Paul. When he's finished the puppies will be great, I'm certain. The same thing is true with Laurie Prindle, whatever she touches turns to gold in my eyes. She's been updating her texture maps and material setting for our HiveWire Horse for IRay and such. She has some amazing Appaloosa maps that she's creating that are unbelievable. Also certainly she can't and won't map all of our animals. She has limited time to put to what we have going, and she picks those things that she has interest in and has to balance that will her many other artistic interests.
Anyway, thanks for waiting and checking in from time to time. I wish I had some better news for you right now. I appreciate your support of our HiveWire products. It's satisfying to know that in your eyes our HiveWire Big Dog is superior to others on the market. I feel the same way.
By the way, yeah, that deer family is going to be a must have product.
