It’s once again near the end of the month, and thus time for me to survey the new releases for DAZ Studio and Poser. Another bumper month of releases. Here’s what I noticed in among the May 2019 releases.
A free Klingon Head Morph for La Femme, the new flagship Poser figure. Star Trek, so for fan-art only, obviously.
A futuristic candygirl, Emiko for La Femme, for Poser 11. I’m not keen on the jelly-hair, but it could be replaced. Shows how flexible the new La Femme can be, in terms of getting away from the default ‘Princess Di’ look.
Planet Irida, an unusual ice-planet and flora, for DAZ Studio.
ATLAS Armored Suit for Genesis 8 by Herschel Hoffmeyer.
A new fan-art freebie Deepcore – Abyss Rig v2.0 is the deep-sea exploration rig from the pretty-good James Cameron movie The Abyss. Obviously not for commercial use.
CS01: Everyday Army Poses for Genesis 8. Ensemble poses, especially useful for storytellers doing things like team superhero or Carthargo-type exploration comics. See other packs in the CS01 series, for more.
A free spaceship bedroom/corridor which is mildly unusual in terms of taking into account the need for low-gravity weightlessness rungs. I like details like that, which make me think, “yes, that’s what they’d have…”.
A slicker and more far-future SF Corridor for DAZ Studio, with viewing windows.
SC20 Gym, a modern gym interior that could probably fairly easily be adapted to be an underground hangar for the above War Mantas.
Chronos for Genesis 8 Male. At first I thought meh!, but actually it has a nice retro late-1950s Jack Kirby monster-comic vibe to it.
When the tentacles attack, your characters might need to dive into the Post-apocalyptic Survival Bunker!
You’ve surely got airships in your runtime. But what about the control decks? The new Steampunk Airship Cabin and control deck. This may also interest Vue users, as an export.
Your airship is probably headed to the new Epic Environments – Floating Sky Island. Again, this may also interest Vue users, exported as an .OBJ file.
The airship crew might be in the dForce Anchors Aweigh Outfit for Genesis 8 Female outfits, perhaps with a more Navy-like makeover that throws overboard the lace. And your airship engineers might be in the new X-Fashion Uniform 02.
Your airship captain might look like the new Gustave HD for Genesis 8 Male.
And the airship’s Attack Squadron leader might wear the Myrna 1920’s Vaudeville Showgirl Tuxedo Hat for G8F, in DAZ Studio.
The airship’s enemies might be helmeted with the new Space Spartan Helmet for Poser and M4, by Cybertenko.
… and possibly also be rather amusingly piloting a fleet made up of the cute little Miyazaki-ish Desert Tram for DAZ Studio. This could probably be kit-bashed with the base from some of Cybertenko’s models, to give you an electro-hover-tram with levitation coils underneath.
At CG Trader, a reasonably-priced Owl Skeleton Handpainted, in .OBJ and .FBX. Slap on a pair of goggles and some boots and it could be something for a steampunk museum or laboratory.
Also, some nicely designed low-poly guns, done in 20k, at $9 each at Sketchfab, one and two and three. They’re not going to look great next to a photoreal G8F, but if you’re doing comic-book work with Poser 11’s comic book inking mode then these may appeal.
Second World War Roadsigns. Could probably also be adapted for a Fallout / Mad Max setting. Also a new set of Airstrip Accessories and Base/tunnel entrance with guard-hut and barrier, from the same time period.
GWR Fruit D Van by DryJack, specialist in British railways.
A free 1960s Bubble Chair Set for DAZ Studio.
dForce Bliaut for Genesis 8 Female, a medieval outfit which at a guess looks about the 11th century, Northern France?
And a realistic ancient castle ruin and mound, possibly more suitable for backgrounds than closer framing.
Watchmaker house for Poser. Nice work, as always, from 1971s. It looks like it could use a set of material makeovers for the four seasons, plus a Christmas-colours set.
Secret Garden Door by 1971s, for Poser.
Yana for Genesis 3. Looks like she would be a characterful candidate for a storybook heroine.
BBarbs continues to add to her fine set of realistic poses for G8 Young Child.
dForce H&C Pajamas Set for Genesis 8, classic old-style pajamas.
Five Birdhouses in .OBJ format. Nicely designed.
Candy-stripes for the HiveWire Horse, for Poser.
Summer series, Inflatable fun for Poser. Back-garden and beach inflatables.
Macro Worlds: Sand Castle Construction Set by HD terrain specialist ShaaraMuse3D.
Lola Free Bundle, a new self-contained/standalone free toon figure for DAZ Studio. Genuinely free. Also free, a set of four Lola Bodies morphs and Hair Colors for Lola. You’ll also want the free More Expressions for Lola set and the Action Actress clothing set for Toon Grrl Lola.
I’ve yet to try to get her over to / into Poser 11, for the Comic Book mode, but I assume she’ll go.
Mr. Spock for Pitterbill, for Poser. Requires the well-known Dr. Pitterbill from Nursoda. Star Trek, so for non-commercial use. Pretty good. ‘Live Long, and Prosper’, little freebie!
Alioramus altai DR, a new and somewhat feathery dinosaur from Dinoraul.
A new set of Animations for the HiveWire Big Cat. I guess you might also get something from these if you tried them on the Housecat, too.
Songbird Remix Shorebirds Vol 4. Including a scarlet Ibis.
Also Songbird ReMix Flock Formations, for rapid setup of flocking flight for your ReMix birds.
3Dream’s Freestuff now includes a big range of SuperFly MATs for older Poser hair.
A new La Femme Business Suit, for Poser 11.
Need somewhere to stash your fab dForce garments? The new FG Closet for DAZ Studio.
Interiors and exteriors:
Cloakroom Clutter for DAZ Studio.
Arabic Living Room for DAZ Studio.
Iray SurfaceWorx. Easily add dust and grime layers, but keep most of the underlying textures.
MF Content Bookmarks. Add a Bookmarks feature to your DAZ Studio Content Library.
Karina’s EasyPose to Normal Pose, for Poser characters.
Soft Body Morphs for G8F in DAZ Studio. Makes G8F squish-able in small ways.
