Definitely one of my weaknesses is not planning out exactly how long the image set is. Usually I end up with around 40 - 60 images in a set and that's even without a written story. So in these cases it can be a bit daunting for me to realize that I'm about 30 images into a set and there hasn't been sex yet just build up which means a lot more work until it's finished. You need the build up but the zombie set I'm working has way too much I think.
Another thing that gets me down is coming up with a great idea but then not being able to recreate or find the environment or characters I had in mind. Then if you just say "well anything will do" then you end up losing interest and wanting to work on something else.
So like I said in my above post I find the best thing is to have 2 or even 3 different projects going at once so you can switch between them when you start loosing interest in the other. Because It really shows when an artist has lost interest in the scene.
Well the hot dog bun might be useful to recreate the classic scene from the 80's movie "Bachelor Party" where the male Stripper "Nick the Dick" places his penis in a hot dog bun and offers it to a posh lady!!!!
I agree with you on price issues matt, although I think most people are not as technically adept to create their own morphs and shapes and rather just dial in and combine what is already there.
Theres no need to buy any generation 5 stuff. You can be fine by just getting those things :
(from DAZ store)
Evolution body morphs : 20 $
Body Resource Kit1 : 20 $
Muscularity : 40$
GenerationX : 32 $
Ideal Beauty : Feet, Legs, Hips
The prices listed below are non-Platinum Club prices, at the time I posted this.
For the sake of argument, I'm using the Evolution Morph Bundle - $32.95, since the functionality is close to Morphs++. Thankfully, you only need to buy one - there's no separate prodcut for male and female figures. I didn't factored in the Muscularity and Body Resource Kit morphs since not everyone will buy them.
Evolution Morph Bundle - $32.95
Genesis Generation X (Upgrade from Gen4) - $11.95 - note: only if you already have V4 and M4
Genesis Generation X - $31.95
V4 and M4 Shapes for Genesis - $19.95 - note: according to DAZ's website, required to use Generation X
That's already something between $64.85 - $84.85. Add the fixes for Genesis something like $16, so that's around $80 to $100. You still need to add the DSON importer - $24.95 - if you want to use GenesisV4/M4 in Poser.
Here's the breakaway alternative
Genesis Michael Victoria Combo Bundle - $124.95
It includes M5/V5, the complete Evolution morphs (Body, Head and Muscularity), plus both genitals. Add another $15 for the ideal fixes, a total of $140.
I actually bought this when it was on sale for about $75. Used a coupon to save 30% to bring it down to $50. Frankly, it was a good deal and it offers all that I wanted out of Genesis. Didn't bought the fixes, since I'm partial to doing it myself.
Anyway you look at it, transitioning to Genesis required a sizable investment. If you already have V4 (and her Morphs++), buying fixes, be it PerfectV4, my own Beautiful Bends V4 (both around $35) or the V4WM (free, but Poser 9/2012 only) is still a lot cheaper.
I do not know if this has something to do with the question but a friend's sister is prostitute, and when she confessed me her secret, I froze, because she seemed like a normal girl in the neighborhood, almost noone knew about her secret work, and I must admit that at first I felt like a kind of rejection of her. But over time I saw that she was a great person and that his reasons for having that job were many more than what one usually imagines
For that reason I think before judging someone first you need to meet the person, in the case of the porn stars I think it should be a similar case only that they are more exposed
Today if I meet a porn actor, and I fell in love of him, I would not mind his job, one should never change the person from whom you fall in love.
Luckily the world is changing and becomes more understanding and tolerant, it´s more, in my country gays and lesbians can marry
I personally don't see drugs that much as enhancers as some people do, just having a fun time in general. They're definitely a social thing for me. I've never been big on drugs, but I certainly don't buy into criminalizing drugs either when you have alcohol which also alters the state of mind.
But back on point, as I said I don't think there's a major link between drugs and porn but I'm pretty sure you could have interesting experiences engaging in both Like for me going clubbing is just about enjoying the music, whereas others seem like they need to have drugs to have a good time doing it.
Ideal setup in Poser is IDL + IBL + SSS + linear workflow I would say. Which adds tons of render time but it is worth it!
But yes the effect of indirect lighting is mostly noticeable by the lighter shadows, which adds realism. I would use it for finals, the difference is noticeable especially if you have elaborate environments and interiors. If it's just single figures or similar it may not be necessary.
The thing with Poser the combination of lighting, IDL, IBL, SSS, linear workflow have big impacts on the final results, so there's always a lot of experimenting involved.
ps: no matter how i cant feel excited knowing there is a male there , for some reason i just cant abstract myself from the naked dude there in M/F relation… :P, so yeah i always think of the porn as third person perspective...
For me its the contrast. The presence of a monster accentuates the female form that much more. Its also exercising the freedom given by the medium. Hentai and 3DX aren't bound by reason/physics/biology, that departure from reality often makes "monster work" more appealing, as real porn has the "vanilla" market well covered.
Speaking from a hetero male perspective, I don't particularly enjoy seeing a naked guy have sex with an attractive female. The male can be easily replaced as he is not the object of my attention. Monsters are more interesting to look at for me,than say Ron Jeremy (even in his prime).
I'd agree with Dizzy in this regard. Weird to say, but I don't really "see" the monster, as it's just as appealing as a stock M4 or Apollo Maximus to me. Since a stock M4 of Apollo are boring visually, it's more interesting to use a monster.
Also, even if something looks like a monster physically, I don't tend to assume it is immoral or depraved until proven otherwise. If you happen to be some kind of troll or fish-man hybrid, well that's just how you grew up. I'm not one to judge based on appearances alone.
ok, heres a question…
does the size of the monster have an impact on the percieved hotness of the monster sex?
Does a smaller monster like the little "imps" in blackadders' monster sex 05 title and the goblins in zzomps current ongoing series have a negative impact?
should the monster(s) always be bigger than the girl?
Does size matter?
My personal viewpoint is "yes", but I'm interested in hearing the opinions of others
I don't mind a size difference, it's the number difference that gets me. 1 cock per fantasy please. It seems like if there's small guys about, there needs to be 20 of them for some reason.
Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I ended up getting the DLC and completed the last one Assault on Dragon Keep a couple of days ago. I love how it's basically a retelling of the main game's story through the eyes of Tiny Tina. The whole game-within-a-game added a lot meta humor that was great.
! What I really loved was the story presented and how it was Tina's way of dealing with death. Considering how the character plays as more of a comedic role throughout the game and other DLCs, I got teary-eyed during the end when she broke down near the end when they tried to tell her Roland's dead. But she knew and couldn't let it go. She just wanted to finish her story, so she could find peace with his passing.
