They look great...are they mainly based on textures? If I buy them it will be to use them in DS...

Yes, they are. I actually pulled it into DS when reviewing it. One of the textures for the bodysuit will definitely need some work - not sure what, but it's super dark. The others (I didn't render them all) will likely just need some slight adjustments.

Thanks Alisa...I really like the textures but wanted to make sure it worked in DS before buying.

These things are mainly texture based, but the stellar sets do rely heavily on some glossy and reflection shaders and might need some serious tweaking. The other sets have mostly only some specular, bump and displacement on them. Some borders are pure procedural shaders, though. I'm sorry I can't do any studio settings, but I know almost nothing of the program. Not any more, that is... I started out with DAZStudio but when it moved on to Studio4 and Genesis I lost it more or less.

Gorgeous!! Really nicely put together!! Very Alphonse Mucha looking image excellent!!

I will let you know from experience those feather transmaps can be a pain in superfly and the Poser Pro 2014 version for FF! Just be sure to check your specular settings on them or they will have a bit of ghosting.

Thank you!
Actually, that image was done in PP 2014 and I can't see any ghosting so I hope it's ok :) Can't check in superfly because I still don't have Poser 11 or Poser11 pro.

When I did the Regalia set Poser 11 had just come out so they may have fixed the issue with how it reflects the light as there have been many updates since then. So maybe they will be fine.

Beautiful though!!! I look forward to seeing what else you have cooking!
