    Oh splendid. He gets to stab himself in the arms. (I'm just no fun at all.)

    I tried. He keeps being mechanical. That's why I say about myself that I'm a killjoy. I think you're the damn greatest 3d artist I've ever seen on the long run, that's why I'm being such an ass (sorry). Let the muscles ... flow~ <3 Dude, I love you, and I think I'm being kind of unfair. What you are doing is astounding, nobody can say otherwise.

    Yeah, trust me, I thought of that when I made the morph. It's just a morph on that chest plate anyway.

    You can look at it a few ways. Design for design sake. Or perhaps his arms are so big they can't reach his sides anyway.

    Look at this very cool looking motorcycle design for example. If the rider made a hard stop, there is a good chance he'll stab himself. Yet, the design was created anyway.

    Smooth is smooth, with a smooth morph applied. I have also created asymmetry morphs for the abs, and face. Mixing and matching works pretty well.

    Kind remarks mixed in there, and I appreciate that. Actually any remarks that can be learned from and bring improvement to our figures is good, especially if we're able to incorporate ideas that work. If you've got an "anti-mechanical" idea for me to incorporate into our Dusk S.E. that would be good. Otherwise I've got ideas that I've been creating to perhaps increase the humanizing of our next version of Dusk. We'll start up another thread here before too long, when we're ready to show him off, and have a clear understanding of how we're going to be able to incorporate previous Dusk morphs, characters, maps and such for Dusk S.E.

    Just a bit of a cat out of the bag there.

    Lovely bike but a sudden stop and he or she would be one with their bike for sure.

    I always think that about the spiky collars some goth outfits have.

    Geeze, the only way you could get me on one of those, is if the gold were 14K. ~Ouchie~

    I can't wait to see the new Dusk in progress-Yes please! to an I ray version.

    Pendraia, have you tried using any Gen 3 skins on Dusk?

    Do you mean the Iray versions? And using ctrl Click to get the settings?
    You have to do it a material at time iirc...I do have the 3DU character for Dusk which has Iray settings that's what I use but I would prefer some material settings specifically for his base texture. I'm still trying to work out setting up Iray skins for the characters I'm doing. I'm more used to doing skins in 3Delight...

    It helps a lot. I have a few big fella's but they don't get the use they should because I don't want them mowing the grass in torn purple pants with no shoes! Everyone should wear shoes unless they are at the beach!

    Looking really great! I love seeing Rukus in comparison to Dusk. I also love the giant axe and the sandals. Nice work!

    Added a scalped hair tassel to the Battle Shield. Both the Helmet hair and battle shield hair have a ton of morphs on them. I'd like to see Paul add in a rig for them for further control as well.

    Back side of shield. Put some arm straps on it now. Moving on to lion claws necklace, probably arm bands and a lil' something extra if I can pull it off (and I can).
