(a.k.a. "Jake Knows Where His Towel Is"
"Jake! You shaved?"
"Duh! It's part of the decontamination process. Organics only. Don't panic, you're safe."
Tyler scanned his partner from head to toe, sensors flashing almost erratically as he tried to integrate this new data. For a moment Jake worried he was going to start glitching again but then the TLR took a breath he didn't really need and blurted out what was foremost on his mind. "All over?"
"Yep. Turns out the Dz'onians have a taboo against body hair. Something to do with one of their fertility gods being scared by a Sasquatch and couldn't perform his duty so the harvest failed. Supposedly happened six thousand years ago but their Chief Prophet says time doesn't matter to an upset god so the taboo stays."
"That doesn't make any sense."
"Tell it to the Dz'onians. And if you think that's odd, wait till you find out what they consider to be proper public attire for an intimate companion bot. Which, for the sake of this assignment, is you."
"I'm going to regret this, aren't I?"
"Maybe," Jake grinned. "Maybe not." Winked. "I can't wait to see you in it."

Production Notes: Jake Baxter was created using both Daz Studio and Poser. This particular scene was done in Daz Studio and rendered with Iray, which I'm still figuring out. I learned about HDRIs and used a free one from http://www.hdrlabs.com/sibl/archive.html so hopefully my lighting no longer sucks ... much. Hey, it only took me 12 years to reach that point in Poser so I think I'm making progress. Who knows, maybe in another decade or so I'll have gone from "does not suck" to "not half bad". :grins: I live in hope.
Postwork is minor: sharpness and color boost in Photoshop, then a border, signature and a resize. I make big renders, it's the only way I can see what the heck I'm doing.
Oh dear. I asked Jake where that "Duh!" came from. "Makes you sound like a thirteen year old girl," I told him. Then he ups and tells me he got it from a thirteen year old girl. His daughter, Kelly Ann. "B-b-but you're gay!" I stammered. He glared. "Ever hear of adoption?" Well, that shut me up but not Tyler who had to hear the whole story and now the poor dear is heart broken. Processor broken. Whatever.
Nuts! Don't ya just hate it when your characters do things like that?
