3D Content Deals for You: 12th May 2014

May 12th DealsThe countdown to Giselle 6 begins… A preview pic suggests she’s a wide-eyed fairy character, so if you love fantasy art and all that’s adorable, get ready! While I’m not a fan of infantile faces when the character is a fully-grown women, it definitely suits a ‘fae’ or faerie. Plus she’ll be a perfect fit for all those lovely sparkly dresses and wings that are scattered through the store. I think we’re going to have some fun with her.

That Adventure’s Jacket for your Genesis 2 males is going to fly off the shelves so fast that I predict it will be in the Top 30 in no time. Created by the duo Gravity Studios and Jr. PupN’Such, at first glance it has the realism of Stonemason‘s Streetwear brand or clothing by smay.

The AntFarm is one of the artists I admire for his skill and innovation, even though his(?) work isn’t in my genres so I own much less than I’d like from him. He does it again with The Colony, which looks like a superb set of buildings and other modular props. It comes complete with snow and sand environmental texture options, so will work great not just for adventurers and explorers on Earth but also for sci-fi renders on other planets.

Speaking of sci-fi and futurism, get yourself an Atmospheric Scrubber from Nightshift3D to instantly create a setting worthy of your most creative post-apocalyptic and other-worldly renders. Ron’s Light Fusion by the amazing deviney has 130 brushes to add stunning professional effects to those scenes. I’ve found that Ron’s brushes work well in GIMP (just drop the .abr in your GIMP brushes folder) but the Photoshop layer styles won’t. Normally, there are way more brushes than layer styles (this pack has 18 of those) so most of these brush packs are worth buying if you too are a GIMP user.

Sci-fi women still love to dress well, so take a look at the Retro SciFi Bodysuit and its add-on texture pack. Those armour panels look cleverly done! As for your evil mastermind or uber-villain, well you need to get them an Imperial Throne. Not just a chair, this is a small set by Nathy and has 2 different styles included.

Finally, I’ve heard so much (and all of it good) abut Filter Forge. Now this useful bit of texture-creating software is being sold through DAZ3D. Although not cheap, if you are serious about creating content for 3D or postworking your digital art, I suspect it will soon pay for itself. Finally, from Dimension3D came 2 late entries to the day’s new releases: the Morph Organizer for DAZ Studio (sounds useful, I’ll need to check this one out) and a GenX Add-On for Luke, Laura, Maddie and Matt — the child figures from generation 3.

Buy one of today’s new releases and you will get discounts on related items (visit the store for details), plus on The AntFarm, Nathy, deviney and Nightshift3D’s stores. You’ll also get extra money off Giselle6 later this week.

New Today on Hivewire 3D: Monday 12th

If you like birds anywhere near as much as I do, don’t miss Ken Gilliland‘s new products. Over the last fortnight he has released the 3 packs in his Songbird ReMix Waterfowl line. These are Dabbling Ducks (vol 1), Diving and Sea Ducks (vol 2), and Swans of the World (vol 3). You can also get the new Duck Pond from Ken for free if you buy Swans of the World. His birds and other sets are always top quality and I can recommend them to other digital artists.

Hivewire 3D has some other recent releases but they are Poser only. As a DAZ Studio user writing for similar people, I can’t give much insight into these, but if you are a Poser fan you should definitely stop by and have a look.
