Welcome HiveWire Sora for Dawn

    Welcome our new character "HiveWire Sora For Dawn".

    So many of us love the Anime genre, and the stylized look that is generated from this category of art. It certainly has quite a wide range of looks that gives it a unique appeal. The HiveWire team recognizes the value of this style, and very much wanted to create our stylized take on it all. We're happy to present to you our Sora character for Dawn. The official product name is "HiveWire Sora For Dawn", but if you just want to call her Sora that is great with us. The Japanese word Sora originates from the word sky. Sora fits in nicely with our human figure line up of Dawn, Dusk and Baby Luna. It is our plan to create the male companion to Sora in the future, so please know this is definitely part of process. Also worth mentioning here, we generated several names for this character and presented those to this community in a poll, and Sora is the outcome of those that voted.

    We thank all involved in this creation process. We thank Virtual World for her gorgeous texture map work for Sora. She's created a beautiful porcelain skin for Sora to add a great look for her, with several make up and eye color options included. We're providing this stunning texture map as a merchant resource as well. We see this as a definite added bonus for content creators. We thank Paul Lessard of CGCubed for rigging Sora, converting her to work equally as well in Poser 10 and above, and DAZ Studio 4.8. Paul also set up the shaders, textures and materials for the Sora Tenacity Action Wear that I modeled. We thank our Beta, and QAV teams for their earnest and dedicated efforts. Lastly we thank this community that supports us, and keeps us going so that we can create more content. We thank you for your input for Sora, not only for her name, but also with your ideas for thoughts on shaping, and morphs to make her more valuable.

    YAY SORA!!!
