Just a small update from me. I've been keeping my head low for a while, focusing on pumping out the renders of the Disco Dragon part 2 and Sen's Initiation. I didn't want to keep on posting repetitive updates. I'm going to try get them out in December before the new year!
In other news, the long awaited Poser 11 is now out!! It is downloading as I type this. These are exciting times for me because Poser 11, as you know, is paramount in the development of my uber-complex figure Project E, and also, perhaps even more so, for my comic-making.
Over at RDNA, Smith Micro decided to showcase P11 (and the figures) to the community, giving us a glimpse into what to expect. Thanks to many folks there, like obviously Nerd3D, but also Netherworks, Vilters, Bagginsbill and a bunch of others provided some insights into what I could expect from Poser 11. Of course since everyone uses Poser differently, I need to see if for myself before being able to formulate in my mind what Poser 11 will mean for me. There were also some previews of the new figures Paul and Pauline, which despite probably being Poser's best figure to date, was less interesting for me, considering I'm developing my own. I might develop some morphs for her, just for fun. The introduction of Pauline did give me valuable insight into what I could probably expect if I release PE. In response, I also opened a thread called "Your Ideal Figure" in which I initially intended to keep independent of PE, but that didn't last too long I think... ahem. I did get some extremely useful tips and suggestions, and have already made some changes in my development plans for PE. She is certainly going to get an entirely new mesh (for the 5th time) because in the year that Ive been working with her, I've seen plenty of room for improvement.
But first, let's see how Poser 11 holds up as a rigging platform, and what this will mean for Project E. I'll let you know in due time what I think, my comics take priority at the moment.
By the way, I will not be downloading the Poser figures yet, only tonight since I don't want to kill my bandwidth!
BTW: not to forget, in the last few days I was quite affected by the horrible events that took place in Paris. Very similar to the atrocities in Garissa, Kenya. Its just incomprehensible that some people can lower themselves to such a level to purposefully kill and main unarmed civilians that were just having a good time. Utterly disgusting. So to all my French fans, my thoughts are entirely with you. I hope you're all ok and that such things don't happen again in the beautiful city of Paris, or anywhere else for that matter.
