My first render with the Hivewire Big Cat Tiger but it will be far from the last as it is so beautiful and easy to use! I title this artwork as "The Perfect Shot"; As the beautiful feline approaches the water, the daring photographer zooms in for the perfect shot from the shadows. Rendered completely in Poser 11 Superfly. Foreground character textures and her hair shaders are by me (wasn't sure if it's okay to mention them since they're on another site). Let me know what you think of my first Tiger artwork! :D Thank you for letting me share it here!

I don't do well without a computer & mine went to the shop on Monday! Just got it back last night. So far it is working, but it has a loaner video card for now. At least I have some finished art that I can post, while I wait for my video card to be shipped.

My computer still isn't working right. :mad: I can't do art. :( Luckily I had this picture done before the problems started.

Here's a White Tiger version. As it turns out, I probably could have just swapped out the maps, but I went through my entire process anyway.

You see, although the assets are all starting out in Daz, I export everything out via FBX in order to import into Lightwave. Why? Well, I've much more control over lighting mainly, but the animation tools for curves adjustment, etc. are just much easier to work with.

There's still a fair amount work particularly for texture translation among other things, sometimes including skeletal re-rigging, but the key thing is I've custom tools that allow weight mapping to the fur elements.

Translation: this allows me to actually animate with fur.

I can only do that using bones as morphs aren't/can't be applied to the fur elements. At least not yet.

But since this is an HW Big Cats thread, I can't help but notice there's a major gap in the cast: A Lion!

This is AM's Felidae which frankly would be hard to improve upon, but just wondering if an HW one might be in the works?

The HW Lion Family has been in the HW store for over 2 years now. I have 2 renders up in my gallery at Renderosity which were uploaded in June and July of 2018, and they most likely were in the store for a month or so before I got to create them.

You can find them here --> HiveWire Lion Family

I do have to say that lighting in Lightwave does bring a level of reality to the renders that is just phenomenal. Can't wait to see what you do with the HiveWire Lion, White Lion (And you will be impressed at the improvements over the AM one!), Jaguar, Black Panther and all the cubs!
