Sometimes, even over a holiday, you still have to keep the hands moving. As I get older, I’ve come to realize just how much of a physical act drawing really is, so even in some downtime, I try to sketch and study a little every day so that when I’m back at work, the hands haven’t started getting rusty. Here are some of the results of studies of my character “Apocalypse Girl”. -Les

Well, it’s been almost a year now that we’ve been working on our new human figures, Scarlet and Jonathan, if we don’t count the various preliminary builds of them we’ve done over the past three to four years previously. The work going into these has been exhaustive, changing with versions of Poser, incorporating the latest features and combining things in ways to create a set of human figures that are the best we’ve ever offered, and I would wager some of the strongest, most versatile and user friendly in the 3D content world. As we approach the announcement of our release date for Scarlet, the first of the two figures due out soon, you’ll see more images and info posted here and shared through Facebook and other sites showcasing various aspects of these new figures and the incredible array of support packages lined up for them.
Scarlet is on her way, and we couldn’t be more excited. I hope to see many new and old users alike adopting these figures, and reaping the benefits of the unprecedented level of up front development and post-release support we’ve dedicated to Scarlet and Jonathan. We chosen a select group of my personal favorite artists from the world of Poser users to have the opportunity to test, give feedback and create artwork with these figures in advance, and if the results are any indication, Scarlet and Jonathan should really spur some amazing creativity and art from the folks who add them to their runtime. In the coming weeks, we’ll be updating our site to add a special “S1M Choice Artists” gallery where we’ll be collecting the cream of the crop and giving special recognition to artists we feel particularly strongly about, starting with our select group of advance artists.
A lot of good things are coming… we’ll keep you posted… -Les
