Just a picture of Paul and Liam at the hot springs.
Haru continues his demonstration.
I got a few requests for more images of the boys in fundoshi on my “Happy New Year”-set. Since I love those garments as well, I gladly oblige.
Allow me to take you behind the scenes and let Haru explain how to actually put on a fundoshi! This let me play with the new(-ish) dforce clothing simulation in daz. Turns out the simulation doesn’t seem to like distorting the clothes too much, so the “fundoshi” doesn’t have the right dimensions, sorry about that. (I already shortened the scarf I used for it by half.) I also found no way to simulate Haru pulling at the fabric and tighten it. If anyone has some tips on how to do that in the clothing simulation, I’d love to hear about it! So if Haru’s demonstration looks a bit inept, that is actually my fault, not his.
Anyway, here is Haru:
Congratulations! You managed to survive yet another year. You win an all new year!
Gaara from the anime “Naruto”. Got asked for him some time ago.
I usually don’t do adaptions of other artists’ characters (and I certainly won’t create models of real people), and I don’t think I’m very good at it anyway. However, for some reason I liked this request, so I gave it a try.
Modelling his face wasn’t easy. To begin with his original manga look is very different from the realistic one I went for. Except for the general shape his face is very featureless in the anime, so I mostly had to wing it.
My options for hair and clothing were quite limited, too, this is the closest I could find.
It is a long time since I last saw “Naruto”. I seem to remember that Gaara’s skin might actually be armour made of sand and that I should have textured it like that, but I’m not sure any more if he wore it all the time or not. In the end, I went with pale skin. Other characters from the series sprout eyebrows, so I assume Gaara’s lack thereof wasn’t an artistic choice but that he actually has none. I decided the same was likely true for any other body hair. The character on his forehead was referenced to as both a scar and a tattoo in different places on the internet. I decided to go with tattoo, might be wrong.
