"Slonya" wanted to show off her pretty new spring dress and hat, so I agreed to take her portrait :-) ==AMY’S NOTES== Kelchris3 and I were trying to track down an old freebie dress for Slon when I got the idea to try putting Vila’s dress on Slon. I used the Fig-to-Prop script to turn the dress into a prop, scaled it a bit, used the morph brush to tighten the straps and arm hole areas, and then ran a dynamics simulation on it (with the dress parented to Slon’s chest). And it worked just fine! The whole process took about 5-6 minutes. In fact, for this pose, I didn’t even need to bother with the simulation. (I also tried using the Fitting Room, but that was not a good solution in this case.) On the freebie wiki page for the old dress, the image shows Slon also wearing a ladies hat with hair, so that prompted me to go searching through my V4 hair collection to see what might work. I was surprised that a search of my V4 Hair folder revealed only one item (out of 175+) that included a hat, but luckily that one worked out pretty well! Rendered in May 2022 using Firefly in Poser Pro 11.3 for Mac at 2500 × 3000 pixels. View full size on my blog. ==CREDITS== SCENE: Background from Unbroken Silence by Sveva. CHARACTER: Slon figure by Nursoda; Eloiny Hair and Hat for V4 by Goldtassel; Cute Bag by Elleque with materials by LittleDesign; Vila’s dress by Nursoda with materials from Poser - Gypsy by Atenais.

Am taking a little break from the 3D world and other hobbies because my mind is occupied by other things and inspiration has left the room, but I popped in tonight and saw this and it brought a really big smile to my face... so thank you for making my day <3

Thank you, RubyTuesday! I'm so glad it brought a smile to your face :-) I'm sorry to hear that you're taking a break from 3D and hobby stuff, but I understand that sometimes life is like that. The render I posted today should be dedicated to you :-)

I enjoy using Slon from time to time, love what you did with him on outfit to make him look female.

perpetualrevision 1:49PM | Thu, 12 May 2022

You've done some great scenes with Slon and other Nursoda characters! They never get old :-) Thanks so much for the comment!

Fun character and image.

She definitely looks gorgeous in her beautiful spring outfits. Wonderful composition, superb environment and lighting, brilliant render. Exquisite Artwork. I love it!

Thanks so much for the comment!

Very interesting image.

OmniFX 10:00PM | Mon, 09 May 2022

Did a really good job on the clothing for this character. Always nice when things work out the way you hope. Excellent work!

perpetualrevision 12:34PM | Wed, 18 May 2022

Thanks so much :-) The method I used helped the dress retain breast shapes, which of course don't really make any sense on a fantasy creature like Slon, but it does lend to the impression that this is a female version of the creature! (The Fitting Room method flattened the breasts into tiny little peaks, which was rather odd!)

Lookin good. Who says it's not easy being green?

perpetualrevision 12:36PM | Wed, 18 May 2022

I suppose it's easier being green when you have a pretty dress and hat to wear :-) Thanks for the comment!


A_Sunbeam 12:22AM | Tue, 10 May 2022

Splendid character, dress and background!

perpetualrevision 12:36PM | Wed, 18 May 2022

Thanks so much! How nice of Vila to share her wardrobe with Slonya :-)


Radar_rad-dude 2:22AM | Tue, 10 May 2022

Well how very nice of you to take her 'photo!' This turned out quite nicely! Bravo! Well imagined and realized!

perpetualrevision 12:37PM | Wed, 18 May 2022

Thanks so much for the comment! She was an easy photo subject to work with :-)

Fantastic stand-out work!


uncollared 6:47AM | Tue, 10 May 2022

Love her dress. Is she heading to brunch? Wonderful work

perpetualrevision 12:38PM | Wed, 18 May 2022

Thanks! How nice of Vila to share her wardrobe, eh? I love how the texture I chose compliments Slonya's skin color! Not every skin tone can wear bright yellow, but green certainly can :-)


misumu 7:10AM | Tue, 10 May 2022

She is a masterpiece. Kudos on your fine work.

perpetualrevision 12:39PM | Wed, 18 May 2022

Thanks so much for the kind comment!

Funny image,wonderful scene,love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Flint_Hawk 1:36PM | Tue, 10 May 2022

A great, unique character in the perfect outfit & setting! It was interesting to find out how you developed this!

perpetualrevision 12:44PM | Wed, 18 May 2022

Thanks, Flint_Hawk! I often think I'm going to use clothes made for one figure on another, but then various issues come up in the attempt to convert them. When I started thinking about a dress for Slon, I thought about which other figures might have a similar shape (and also what type of dress would be simplest to make dynamic). And Vila's dress came immediately to mind! It worked better than I expected in part b/c the breast shape didn't get lost in the process (although it is perhaps a bit silly to think that a creature like Slon/ya would have human female breast shapes!) One of these days I'd like to get Marvelous Designer or a similar add-on for Blender so I can make more clothes for Nursoda's folks, but until then, this method has its uses!

Slon looks great in her new dress and I like the color palette in this render. Well done!

perpetualrevision 12:45PM | Wed, 18 May 2022

Thanks so much for the comment! I was delighted to find that texture for her dress as it compliments her skin and provides a nice bright touch for a spring scene! I was also delighted to find a background that worked, as backdrops for portraits like this often flummox me :-)


Karth 3:56AM | Wed, 11 May 2022

Very well done . :) Love the coloring

perpetualrevision 12:47PM | Wed, 18 May 2022

Thanks so much, Karth! I was happy to find a solution that works, although it wouldn't work in a more extreme pose. I love that the texture on her dress compliments her skin tone pretty well!


MollyFootman 3:08PM | Thu, 12 May 2022

Slonya looks great here and I took some notes on your ingenious solution to putting her into a colorful Spring dress. XD Thank you for sharing, Amy!


perpetualrevision 12:53PM | Wed, 18 May 2022

Thanks, Molly! The solution I used does involve dynamics, which I know doesn't always work well for sequential storytelling. But after I did this render I experimented with another option, which was to parent the original figure dress to Slon's chest and then just use the dress's thigh bones to pose the skirt. That worked pretty well, too, esp. if I hid Slon's abdomen (or I could've used the morph brush to bring the dress out a bit).

I've converted other Nursoda clothing items from one of his figures to another using the Fitting Room, but they were closer in shape. In this case, the Fitting Room did strange things to Vila's dress, including shrinking the breast shapes into weird spiky points (which aren't on Slon's chest, so I don't know what that was about!) The Fitting Room is probably the better option for clothing you hope to use more than once, and in a variety of poses, but this was a "one off" :-)

OMG what a funny looking young Lady, she looks really pretty good in her new summerdress! I wish you a nice weekend and a great new week!

Thanks so much for the comment, Ute!

Slonya is so pretty!

perpetualrevision 12:54PM | Wed, 18 May 2022

Thanks so much, romangirl! I wouldn't have guessed Slon could look "pretty," until all of this came together :-)
