No, I think we already answered that. You're free to use the Sora skin texture though.

Sorry there was so much confusions and a lot of questions I missed it.
I think I'll probably pass - to me dial spinning is dialing anything I have availble; so characters get dialed a little bit usually several of them as well as morphs dials.

You do such great work on your characters and your renders it saddens me that not being able to use a character is uninspiring to you. That's what a challenge is, right? What can you do within these parameters?

I love what has been posted so far.

Nice idea for a challenge. It's easy to forget how different a face you can get even by simply combining two other characters. I'm also finding that Sculpted Dusk is surprisingly versatile. Still working on this guy, so not a final render yet (I got distracted using a geoshell for the first time, while working on the skin texture). On a non-Challenge-specific-but-related note, has anyone got any good suggestions for a realistic Iray shader for teeth and/or eyes for Dusk?

Unfortunately ''combining two other characters'' is not allowed in this contest.

No, it's not. I was just making a comment related to the Challenge being something that might make people think outside their usual box. Sorry if the remark might have misled anyone.

Right, HaiGan. This challenge was intended to encourage people to create their own character without depending on characters created by someone else.

Like Lisa, I love what people have shown they can do with the HiveWire figures and a "handful" of morphs.

Okay, so to make sure I'm properly understanding, I can use JUST Dusk and add morphs that aren't sold as characters, or JUST DuskSE and add morphs that aren't sold as characters, but I can't dial part way between Dusk and DuskSE because Dusk counts as a character?
