    I'm holding out on getting the new deer over yonder in anticipation of the deer being released here for Harry ...

    oh, the pain!

    Didn't know there was a "new deer over yonder". But we can only do what we can do. I'm confident without even seeing yonder deer, that ours will be superior.

    Yours probably will be superior, but the one over yonder isn't half bad. Deepsea does excellent work.
    And it's loads better than the old Buck from way back when.

    over yonder where? DAZ? For D/S only for sure? No thanks won't even bother the typing of the url.
    Best things in life afterall are worth waiting for?
    Like I am still waiting for that Spanish Bull and a really nice completely morphable centaur male and female that can be made into several body type characters and ages. Have always wanted a good cyclops and................sorry...I'll shut up before I get gagged.
    I can wait! LOL ;)

    What i liked about this was the simplicity of the paint. Not gaudy or too modern synthetic colors. Would like the blanket to be longer (from neck to butt (or whatever those parts are called on horses!) and yea the rope bridle which loops to lower lip and thicker as you said and if cn be set up as an easy pose would be waaaay cool too those multi-pet ropes w/o easy pose are a nightmare to pose smoothly. The feather ideas as props are cool too. Is this actually done?

    I remember seeing this but not sure if it was a shape morph for the P4 horse or MilHorse1. I would love it too.

    Have you seen the Hell Rider film with Sam Elliott? In it he is shown as a HellRider from the west and instead of a motorcycle rides a fiery black horse. Loved it. Something like that would be way cool too.

    I would like displacement maps that give Harry the detail that Linday gave Daz Horse 2 with her HD morph pack. I also need a utility for mane and tail posing (or at least a guide).

    Aiming to try to do something like that for Harry. I've been pulling out my Stubbs anatomy books and studying them:)

    Also here is at least a guide for the mane. The info in this should help you understand the tail better too.

    And besides the video that CWRW posted above, there is the product Show Off Poses for the HiveWire Horse - A Daio Creation at HiveWire 3D that lets you adjust mane and tail separately.

    If you are working in Poser, working with individual segments of the mane for fine-detailing the posing (after using the BODY dials for general posing) is much easier if you uncheck 'Remove backfacing polys' in the preview render settings. It also really helps to set the Transparancy value for the Mane material to 0.0 while posing (set back to 1.0 before rendering), and use the Heirarchy Editor to select the mane segments rather than trying to click on them in the main window. I tend to hide the whole mane in Heirarchy Editor then make each section visible one at a time so I can see what it's doing without it being hidden by the other segments.
