I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Within the sound of silence
Apologies to Simon & Garfunkel. Ever since I abandoned Daz and digital 3-D models for use in my comics and went back to dolls, I have installed and uninstalled Daz, Poser and much of my purchased content more times than I can count. I keep jettisoning it because it’s a huge space and memory hog, but then I keep recalling it because I wish to execute projects that I can only do in Daz/Poser. Most recently it was Jareth’s custom head that needed Daz/Poser. Previous projects include the Library of Intellectum and copious use of all the digital kinky accessories available for free online if you know where to look. >:}
Daz/Poser returns to my hard drive this time for a few reasons. 1) Therianthropes! I get on therianthrope kicks occasionally, and I’m on one now. I have all the tools required to make kick-ass therianthropes. 2) Make-up concepts. I still have the files that I developed for Jareth’s head, as well as a bunch of texture kits for doing custom make-up on characters. Since his make-up changes every single time I imagine him, it would be lots of fun to replicate this outside of my head, if only in digital. 3) Copious use of all the digital kinky accessories available for free online if you know where to look.
Some of my digital experiments might make the leap from digital to doll in the future. I’ve been thinking, for example, that it’s time to let Juniper out of my head, where she has been pacing restlessly for about 4 years, rolling her eyes, sticking out her tongue, fluttering her ears, sticking up her middle fingers and generally making an adorable nuisance of herself. Anyway, watch this space!
