The Dawn of A New Era

Dawn is the latest in a long line of historically significant figures developed by Chris Creek, creator of the original Poser figures, Dork and Posette, as well as the original Michael and Victoria figures. Created with both Poser and DAZ Studio users in mind, Dawn will be available in two versions: one with native Poser files compatible with Poser 9 and above, and another with native DAZ Studio files compatible with DAZ Studio 4.5 and above.

In a collaborative approach like never before - Renderosity, RuntimeDNA, Poser World, YURdigital and HiveWire 3D are working with merchants across the community to create supporting content for Dawn. All are welcome to join this effort.


"It's very exciting to see a new wealth of creativity and community wide collaboration on the horizon with the release of Dawn. This is a very unique opportunity to come together and celebrate the talent and passion for art we all share across each of these communities". - Tommy Lemon, Vice President of Renderosity

"Through the combined efforts of this wonderful community at large, we will achieve great things with Dawn. But perhaps a more important outcome will be the unity we can realize". - Chris Creek, Founder of HiveWire 3D

"We are extremely excited about the new Dawn figure and the opportunity to create content for such an excellent 3D figure. We think this could finally be the perfect Poser character to work with". ~ Allen Harkleroad of

"I am awake and dreaming. Today four communities stand together shoulder to shoulder with someone who developed the most widely used figures in the history of our industry. How wonderful an opportunity it is to combine efforts with such historically vibrant and successful communities. This like minded group of innovators put their heads together, took a deep breath and walked across the bridge to a brand new future". - Syyd Raven, Founder of Runtime DNA

"The highly anticipated release of the new female figure, Dawn, from the extremely talented team at HiveWire3D will be a breath of fresh air for the Poser and DAZ Studio communities". - Clint Hawkins / YURdigital, LLC CEO & Co-founder

She looks fantastic. She bends so naturally. And her arms and shoulders (always tough areas for Poser figures) look great. She's got the right number of polys, too. She splits the difference between Genesis and V4, which is perfect, IMO. With both Poser and DS having SubD now, there's no need for a V4 sized geometry any more. But I do like the better definition you get with more polys than Genesis has.

Looks really good you could make it even better by allowing us to use v4 stuff on it but hey if you cant I am still going to support it daz has got to big for its boots now.

Stand-alone figures for Poser/Daz haven't had the best track record. However, the overwhelming support from artist and vendors alike, may just tip the scales in Dawn's favor. Wishing the entire group of talented artists behind the project much success. I am eager to get my hands on her!

I'm so excited, and I just can't hide it! Best of luck and success for the new Dawn!!

A landmark achievement, in the making. Two, really -- a re-unified community and the creation of a fantastic new figure. Congratulations, HiveWire, and thank you.

This looks really exciting. If any nice kind person will be making tutorials I'm quite happy to purchase these.

Exciting times indeed. This community effort is so valuable for us all. Dawn will have a great chance to have legs now to run fast and long.

Darkworld ( posted at 3:29PM Mon, 08 July 2013

I'm excited! from the pics Dawn looks to be the same resolution as V4, is there more detail associated with this figure?

MarianneR ( posted at 3:36PM Mon, 08 July 2013

Very exciting news! She is very well-proportioned in my opinion.

FaeMoon ( posted at 3:49PM Mon, 08 July 2013

I'm hoping to see tons of stuff for Dawn. She is a gorgeous girl, and I can't wait to throw some of the $$$ her way to buy the extras.

JohnMichael ( posted at 4:04PM Mon, 08 July 2013

If Dawn doesn't work with V4 clothes, hair and poses, she won't get too far. We see the same thing happening with Poser stock characters and others, even though they are awesome models.

cedarwolf ( posted at 4:04PM Mon, 08 July 2013

Looking forward to her release. Now I just have to see how expensive she is.

AetherDream ( posted at 4:09PM Mon, 08 July 2013

I love the fact that so many people have come together in a positive way for this project. I eagerly await the great content that our wonderful creators are making.

July 8: is currently down. Not a good omen if they are the one's rolling out Dawn.

Is PhilC in the loop to create a module to convert clothes to fit Dawn?

Elcet ( posted at 4:23PM Mon, 08 July 2013

Sorry to be critical, but it's not a good point that she isn't compatible with Poser 6, 7 and 8. She should be! So, sorry, but I am negative!

tempest967 ( posted at 4:25PM Mon, 08 July 2013

The talented creative render & promotion teams at Elite Models 3D & Digital Stardust on Facebook are eagerly awaiting Dawn's release and look forward to supporting this new endeavor.

snowlambs ( posted at 4:39PM Mon, 08 July 2013

Well, I don't make clothes or hair etc but, can't wait to purchase Dawn and in that way I feel like I am contributing as Will be waiting for you to give us a link to her. TY snowlambs

So... will Dawn give Vicky significant amounts of competition?

aproctor ( posted at 5:09PM Mon, 08 July 2013

Very exciting that so many parts of the community are coming together for this!! Just to help, with some info that's been posted elsewhere. cedarwolf - Dawn will be free initially JohnMichael - isn't "down", the site has not yet launched :) PhilC is aware of things. Elcet-she is weightmapped, so unfortunately can't be compatible with earlier versions of Poser that don't support that :( There's a HUGE thread here with TONS of info:
