Actually according to DND
Very COOL!!


Give him some really big enlarged Canines and he can do for a Kobold!
Kobolds are a fictional species featured in the D&D RPG game. Aggressive, xenophobic, yet industrious small humaniod creatures, kobolds are noted for their skill at building traps and preparing ambushes. In the original Dungeons & Dragons game, kobolds were goblinoids, but they have been depicted as reptilian with characteristics of humans and dogs in later editions of the game. They usually are depicted as dog-like with enlarged canines and green to yellow skin and orange eyes.

But, you might rather try a Troglodyte though if you are thinking of civilizing them and some of them do live underground, but always around a water source like underground caverns rivers and lakes they are primarily a fishing civilization and make incredible nets.

I could also see him in a top hat and tails. But keep him in the bikini bottom. Ha.
OMG, you just put a picture in my head I remember from years ago, either a movie or on TV, of a black man wearing whiteface makup to look like a skelton, a black top hat, a long necklace of bones, no shirt, and I can't remember what type of pants or shorts, but I think he was wearing sandals. It's been years, so I'm sure I'm not remembering the details correctly, but I thought of it immediately after I read your post. :D I do remember it was during N'Olreans Mardi Gras, and I think he was performing some sort of ritual.

Yes, yes, yes!! Geoffrey Holder was the actor. This isn't the exact "look" I was remembering, but you get the idea. The character he played was Baron Samedi.



You can see him in this cover from the dvd (or book not sure which). This is more the look I was remembering.



It amazes me I can't always remember what I had for dinner a couple of nights ago, but I remembered this from a 1973 movie????? My mind's definitely weird at times.

Oh and if anyone's wondering, Baron Samedi was a VooDoo Master. ;)

Any grass huts out there in Poser/Studio land?

Either that, or perhaps we can scale him down and he can live in Ken's Kiwi Burrow.
Hi Chris!
There's a product called Tribal Huts which includes the Bana and Chaga peoples of Africa plus two Native American, Apache and Pima over at Rendo and I think that's just about it, but I should imagine that this guy would be inclined to hang around Ken's Safari Camp on the lookout for what he could get. Perhaps even taken a fancy for the erstwhile Editha! o_O

AM did an African village construction kit, several years ago. And there are the old tribal huts and tree house in the PC+ collection.

Oh yes, I remember the tribal huts. Hmmmm, I wonder if I ever picked those up.

I did eventually buy the tribal huts, but I'm not sure I have ever used them in a render. I thought I remembered that they had been created by Stonemason (as well as the tree house, right?) So, I checked the ReadMe, and yes indeed, the DAZ tribal huts were were by Stonemason.

I have them in the Hearts of Africa wide open spaces series of backgrounds. I'm not sure what set Kage used in his render on the bottom though. Prop wise I don't see why you can't extract them as an object and run them in Poser either.
