Yeah sure for D/S! I am sure of that and if not then someone else I am sure....but for Poser? Doubtful!I'm beginning to get the impression that this new deal between Hivewire and DAZ has the potential to put AM's nose seriously out of joint. He and Valandar have been the main PAs to produce creatures over at DAZ for the last couple of years.
Valandar seems mostly to specialize in monsters and fantasy creatures. AM has been king of the hill for real world critters for some time. Now, I agree that his modeling has improved *a lot* since the days that he was producing his first animal models with the displacement fur. But it is nowhere anywhere close to Chris's, and the main selling point of his is that they all come with LAMH presets -- which can improve the look of just about any mesh.
Not to mention that we've been hearing rumors of AM being the one who is producing the next generation of dog and cat for most of a year.
First off, this makes all of those rumors devolve into pretty much definitely being no more than rumors. I doubt that DAZ would be making overtures regarding the Hivewire animals if they had a new source behind the scenes approaching completion. So, either AM is working on his own dog and cat, but not for DAZ. Or what he is working on is badly delayed and DAZ got tired of waiting, or even that what he is doing isn't up to expectations. Or it could be just about anything. But the Hivewire animals are tough competition, and I really don't think that AM is currently up to it.
