So, I converted Karina from G2f to G8F. Which isn't as smooth a process as the script makes it out to be. Also, if you do this and notice that the eyelids look all wrong, let me save you some trouble: Add a smoothing modifier to the character. Fixes it right up.
I also needed to go in and tweak the lips and cheekbones just a bit.
Then what was left was to select a suitable skin. I didn't have any that really match Karina's skin tone, so I wound up using Evlin's skin, and adding some freckles. The end result isn't QUITE what I had with the G2 version, but I like it. And now I can dress her in anything I've got, mwahahahaha!
Which in this case, is the Verna Fae boots and neck piece and the Regal Captain pants, shirt, and jacket. I hid the neck piece on the Regal Captain shirt. So, while I like the outfit of the original, I figure a respectable sheriff should wear pants. I also found her a sheriff's star in the freebies, so... overall? I think it's an improvement! You can find the "original" in my gallery if you dig a little.

Fantastic work. For her sake, I hope that enormous gun doesn't kick too badly!

Nice character, really big gun! Maybe the steam will help with the recoil. Great work!

Very nice! But it must be annoying to have to carry that gun all the time in your hand.

Typical great work - yes converting had to have been a lot more work than usng a pose adaptor from G3 to G8....was worth it, though :)

Well, your efforts certainly paid off, good sir. She looks fantastic! And daaaaaamn! That's quite an artillery piece she's toting! Sweet work!
I might try some of those tricks someday - if I can ever get DAZ working again...

This is a technical and artistic success for sure. Where in the world did you find a tutorial on taking G2 to G?. Had i of been around DAZ that long, I am sure that I would have G2 char's just aching to get air-time in a G8 world. Well done.
