When I get a bit more time I'd like to make a new hairdryer, and suit, for Roxie...

Roxie the Rocket Lassie ;-)

So... any more clues about this next freebie Darth??


  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 7:55AM Thu, 27 June 2013  · @4079407

Clue : it's visible in every render.

You modeled billions of grains of sand!?

I think the beach house would have been easier.

Bagginsbill did the sand, I made the beach house(s) ... a long time ago.





  monkeycloud    ( ) ( posted at 1:01AM Fri, 28 June 2013  · @4079715

...and the sun lounger?


  GeneralNutt    ( ) ( posted at 1:03AM Fri, 28 June 2013  · @4079716

Plastic shovel?



  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 9:24AM Fri, 28 June 2013  · @4079787

The "Ben-Hur" sun lounger is also mine ... from a while ago.

The shovel is part of a recent freebie beach set by Sparkyworld. I'll be using more items of that set for Roxie to interact with.

Actually, it's rather simple : also present in every render is Roxie, in a different pose. So this will be a beach pose set for Roxie.





  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 1:41PM Sun, 07 July 2013  · @4083655

Another example, here interacting with Sparkyworlds "frigobox" as it's known in this country (and despised by the mayor of the very posh seaside resort of Knokke-Heist).

... and a bonus pose with Miki 4 ...

Or should I turn these couple poses into a whole new set ?





  monkeycloud    ( ) ( posted at 10:38AM Mon, 08 July 2013  · @4083984

Excellent :-)

Will be good to get some poses for either or both Roxie and Miki4...


  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 5:08PM Mon, 08 July 2013  · @4084305

The bad news is it's been postponed for a while : I just suffered my 3rd computer crash this year. First the old computer (hard disk failure), then the spare / travel mini computer (hard disk failure), after which I bought a new computer. Not even a month later, you'll never guess : hard disk failure.  My computers are dying faster than the average spaghettiwestern gunslinger. I could only wish hard disks were as reliable as an Edinburgh tram ...

Still under guarantee so I had to take the computer back to the shop where I bought it and they said it would take "about" 15 days to get it back. However their repair service has a bad reputation for delays.

So I'm working on this old (anno 2006) computer which survived all these years but it's a 32bit without much "oomph". Don't know if it will be capable to run Poserpro14 32bit which is required for Roxie and Miki 4.

The good news is none of the pose files were lost, even the pose I was working on seems to have been saved.

 





  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 6:03PM Mon, 22 July 2013  · @4089245


Poser 12 corrupted by the DSON importer, Poser 14 32bits taking days to install, what do we have left ? Poser Pro 10. Took 5 minutes to install.

Can't continue on the sunbathing/beach poses but instead I dug up a not yet released freebie, the Alptraum mountain chalet.  WIP above, nearly finished.

What do you mean you've heard that one before ?

Anyway it's got a nice rooftop terrace with plenty room for sunbathers, they don't need a beach. And if I can find it back you should get a chunk of mountain too.

Oh, and we also have a new king meanwhile.





  foxylady1    ( ) ( posted at 1:13PM Tue, 23 July 2013  · @4089499

Good luck with your computer problems.  Thanks for the chalet.  When will it be released?


  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 2:51PM Tue, 23 July 2013  · @4089536


Above : WIP and probably definitive version of "Alptraum" (check out the translation).

I even found that chunk of mountain back.

While business is slow during summer they send the most useful person in the office on holiday, in order to make sure the remaining workforce will be well occupied taking over his/her job.

I am the one on holiday, for a week.

So I've got plenty of time to finish this Alptraum. How about "soon" ?

since i cant use the lovely poses the chalet looks tasty. for daz or poser? working in P7...will it work in that?


  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 4:04PM Tue, 23 July 2013  · @4089551

Always Poser, since a certain R. Haseltine made sure I could never again post in their forums I am boycotting DAZ. 

Being made in P10pro the combination of textures and Poser shaders should work in P7, could be that you get the typical message stating something like "this thing was made in another version but Poser will try to read it anyway" after which it will load.

Meanwhile I've managed to re-install PP12 which allows the use of Roxie, though only few of her morphs are functioning here.

Hence a few poses specific for the Alptraum retreat will follow, such as the one above where Roxie gets her back suntanned.

I hope these poses will be usable in PP14, considering the odd behaviour of PP12.

Some toys for you to play with ... soon.

When SOON becomes NOW :

http://www.sharecg.com/v/71433/browse/11/Poser/AT-THE-BEACH-13-poses-for-Roxie.

 

13 poses of Roxie involved with all sorts of beach activities.

 

If anything is wrong please report ASAP but remember Roxie only functions correctly in PP10 or PPro14.

My #1 disciple has returned. I thought you were lost, gone to Glasgow or something like that.

Anyway, in the render above you see some ideas for new freebies.

  • a personalised bottle based on a publicity campaign by a well known beverage company. I'm only doing the texture (without any reference to that company) using someone elses free bottle, you'll get the link. Want your real or avatar name on that bottle ? Ask for it.

  • bed poses for Roxy and Miki 4. I already had some Poses for M4 ready but using a Poserworld bed. As an ordinary "lifetimer" I feel cheated by these people and will no longer promote their stuff, so out goes their furniture. Which means adapting the poses to this iron bed, another freebie for which you will get a link.

Let's play the "find the freebie" game, search here :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CXzlIT_Q6IM

Don't  remember if this possible freebie has been mentioned before, if not use your Google-Fu to find it. There is a clue in the comments.

All theory and soon I'll be back in Berlin, who knows what I'll find there.





  monkeycloud    ( ) ( posted at 7:33AM Mon, 09 September 2013  · @4103054

Sonny and Cher characters for Roxie and Rex?!?

Or, perhaps not...?

Something to do with the old Flemish farm perhaps??


  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 12:16PM Mon, 09 September 2013 · edited on 12:17PM Mon, 09 September 2013 · @4103114

How do you want Sonny, before or après-ski ?

Celebrity lookalikes are not my speciality, least of all for figures without much morphs available.

The old "flemish" farm is actually a Brabantian type farm : built as a small fortress, square shaped, walled. As the name says mainly found in the old province of Brabant, on both sides of the linguistic border. Does "La Haie Sainte" sound familiar to you ?

So the Brabantian farm is another possible freebie.





  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 6:07PM Thu, 12 September 2013  · @4104155


You may have noticed the previous render depicted a double bed.





  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 2:05PM Sun, 06 October 2013  · @4108913


Also on my to-do list, a few 座頭市 poses for Miki2. Difficult, further observation of the real one is required.

 





  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 6:28AM Sat, 12 October 2013  · @4109765


A more correct 座頭市 pose. Or " Zatoishi " pose, if you or/and your computer can't read Japanese. Zatoishi is a fictional anti-hero, a former Yakuza (gangster) turned masseur/gambler wandering around 1840's Japan trying to redeem himself by protecting defenseless people against the many warlords, rent-a-sword samurais, corrupt government officials and other evil-doers. Which usually ends in slicing through many opponents and racking up an impressive bodycount.

Important detail : Zatoishi is blind. Hence the special defensive fighting style which I will try to represent in a few typical poses.

To begin with I watched the opening credits (bodycount : +/- 13) of this movie :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=COCkVzBnVCw

 

There are many more to watch ...

 





  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 7:06AM Mon, 14 October 2013  · @4110015


But first, I'm going on a holiday. Toodeloo.

 





  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 9:09PM Sat, 16 November 2013  · @4117063

I did return from Berlin, about 8000 pictures and a few miniature vehicles richer. Yet this may have been the last time, as the event I'm attending there is steadily going downhill.

Really bad news is that I have run out of install licenses for my architecture program and if you remember the last time this could only be solved by buying the program once more. Exactly the same version, there are no more updates.

So much for the introduction ...

 





  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 9:20PM Sat, 16 November 2013  · @4117064

So, for the moment no more buildings, only poses. To begin with ...

 

The Japanese Bathing ritual, 4 poses for Miki 4.

 

As for everything else in Japan there is a complicated ritual to follow when taking a private or - especially - public bath. I'm only mentioning a few details, consult the Internet for the whole story.

  • leave your indoor-slippers at the door. Other slippers may be provided.

  • also provided are 2 towels, a small one for "modesty" purposes and a large one for drying off yourself. 





  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 9:24PM Sat, 16 November 2013  · @4117065

2 Here it gets complicated ...

Thoroughly wash and rinse yourself OUTSIDE the bath. There are low benches to sit on and pails, faucets or showers are provided.





  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 9:28PM Sat, 16 November 2013  · @4117066

3 The bath tub is meant for soaking, not for washing, somewhat like a jacuzzi I guess.

Nowadays most public baths are separated male/female, some are (still) mixed.





  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 9:32PM Sat, 16 November 2013  · @4117068

  1. and finally dry yourself with the aforementioned towel.

Note : you may be refused entrance to a public bath if you are wearing tattoos, as they are associated with Yakuza (sort of Japanese Mafia) members.





  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 9:34PM Sat, 16 November 2013  · @4117069


Of course, do clean up and leave the bath(room ) as you found it !

A new pose set will soonish be ready, working title is "workout for Roxie and Miki 4" It ain't exactly 1980s aerobics. 5 poses each.

And 3 months later we're back in business. How about a mid-1960s style European train station ? Not based on anything in particular but as there is so little feedback here I follow my own interests.  I present SCHADENFREUDE BAHNHOF.

 





  Ninja-G33k    ( ) ( posted at 11:03AM Thu, 17 July 2014  · @4163292

Very nicely done, DarthJ!


  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 1:39PM Thu, 17 July 2014  · @4163310


This is the platform side with a restaurant. A row of nailed-to-the-floor furniture is included (which can be made invisible if you want to).

  • All the writings on the signs "restaurant", "DR" etc... are removable loose props which can be coloured as you desire.

  • The shops have a panel behind the glass which can be used for a fake interior image. Or made invisble to provide a real interior.

  • Unfortunately the outer walls do not look good with heavier bump maps.

  • Only 1 texture is used (and not indispensable) : the mosaic (a picture made by Darthj himself).

  • Though this model uses mostly shaders many material zones are mapped to take textures.

Another "model kit" ready for kit-bashing ...





  shante    ( ) ( posted at 4:05PM Thu, 17 July 2014  · @4163338

Been fascinated with your posts and offerings. As much the props as the history behind them. Quite the deep passion you have and the generosity is wonderful too.

I Meant to ask, is ShareCG still asking to be paind a monthly fee for generous folks to offer their freebies there?

Though I  understand their need to be at least breaking even,I know it sucks  but though nothing is free it really will impact future offerings from gererous folks like yourself and broke retirees like me with nothing better to do except Poserize all day!

Hope it all works out.

 

Anxious about that lovely brass bed too!  :)


  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 10:54PM Thu, 17 July 2014 · edited on 10:55PM Thu, 17 July 2014 · @4163372

No, I don't pay. Those who pay get a publicity-free environment (no pop-ups). If I had to pay I would leave Sharecg.

If you mean the brass bed rendered above, it's not mine. A freebie probably still available somewhere.

Easter Egg Hint :

The workout M4+R1 poses ... if you check the file that nobody ever reads you may stumble upon something ... maybe it's a booby trap ... maybe not ... do not reveal the truth ...

 

 





  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 5:06AM Sat, 19 July 2014  · @4163514


The finishing touch ...





  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 10:58AM Tue, 22 July 2014  · @4163951

Schadenfreude Bahnhof has been released :

  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 11:00AM Tue, 22 July 2014  · @4163955

You'll have to copy-paste that link.

Anyway, up to my next freebie, which will be a ...

train station.

Ouch.

 





  DarthJ    ( ) ( posted at 1:16PM Sat, 26 July 2014  · @4164869


And here it is, in plastic by Vero. Bahnhof Domburg. Though I haven't found a real Domburg in East-Germany its features are so specific that I doubt it's all fantasy.

Unlike many other building kits from East-Germany this one has not been reissued after the "Wende".
