So cute...if stand alone I'm assuming it is still based off the original Gorilla which is a dusk morph so we should be able to create a clones for it so we can put clothing on it?

After talking over the Gorilla baby today internally, we'll probably go this route with the mommy and baby.

Male Gorilla requires Dusk, and with that in mind we'll follow up the mother and baby the same way. Baby Gorilla will require Baby Luna, and Mother Gorilla will require Dawn. The rigging of Mother will work better coming off of Dawn's rig with adjustments, and the baby will spawn from Baby Luna's rig.

I was wondering if you would decide to do that. It certainly makes sense since the Male Gorilla works so well with Dusk's rigging.

That sounds good Chris. It will make it easier to pose using existing poses (with tweaking) and also will be fun if we can do a humanoid family like we can with Daddy Gril/Dusk.

Sounds good Chris as that way they can wear the original figures clothing also and use the poses we already have.

I think making them all morphs of the existing hivewire figures is a great way to go. I remember seeing at least one person who did a sort of sci-fi planet of the apes render of the Gorilla by putting him in some of Dusks clothes. I think this will allow a lot to be done with all of them, including opening up some options for some fantasy characters.
