I would be feeling seriously ripped off and annoyed if it happened to me Ken.
I look at it as business is business, I've had several PAs over the years copy or mimic some of my products. If I plan to create a similar product on the market, I generally wait a year or two out of politeness, but that's just me. I think I waited three years, before I released my owl so it wouldn't hurt Noggins sales. Also, I compare my product to what already exists-- if I can't make a dramatic improvement over what is currently on the market, I won't make it.
I'm sure, knowing the "other" places' Marketing Department, that they probably encouraged or directed PAs to do similar products to my Nature's Wonders line and Chris's Dog. Simple reason is protecting marketshare. If people are going to Hivewire3D to get Chris's amazing dog model or my frog, they aren't spending money at the "other" place... and even worse, they might find that the grass is greener at Hivewire (as most of us know).
I agree with Lynne, the HW dog and wip breeds I seen are well worth getting and worth waiting for.
Gotta agree with you on that dear. it looks good....as a toon-like doggie! I think in some cases the old Milldog looked better at least a bit more realistic even by today's standards.
Chris you doggie is SUPERIOR and that is not my stupid attempt to blow smoke up your.....uh!?.......well, where it DOES NOT belong1 LOL
Doing bold things is how we describe it Jan.
I know what you're sayin'
chalk n cheese IMO
As for my next Nature's Wonder model... the base set and texture is coming along well. With record heat causing brown outs, visiting family staying with us, lots of chores and some laziness, my progress has been slower than usual. I'm starting to add in morphs for the expansion sets. The base set will include the model, one species with 3 variants. Each expansion sets will have 6-7 species. I think I want the first expansion set ready along with the base set so late August is probably a realistic release time.
Is that an Eye of Newt?!?
It certainly doesn't look like "toe of frog..."
Well, you've definitely got folks guessing Ken. Can't wait to see the "whole" project.
Yes, you're definitely being devilish.
That too Dreamer.
Btw, do you have a blue/gold macaw texture among your birds? I was looking for one and couldn't find one. Scarlet and blue, Military Macaw, and Hyacinth Macaw, yes, along with a number of other lovely parrot types, but not a blue/gold.
Ken is that a round pupil eye or does it have slits at the sides of the pupil?
Yes, there's no Blue & Gold Macaw yet... Once I get all the volumes updated, doing a second Parrots of the World is on my list.
You'll have wait for the next image
Awww. I did a search for an eye like that and couldn't find one. Did run across a study that said predators like cats and snakes have an up down slit while prey have a horizontal one. Deer for example.
Thanks for the confirmation on that. I'll stop hunting.
Ooops I forgot two addition macaws
- Cuban Red Macaw (Extinct) from TEE v2
- Spix's Macaw from TEE v3
