The cool mist of dawn settles on the grass and stones. A rustling is heard in the nearby underbrush, coupled with the faintest hint of playful laughter. Trickling water shimmers down the stream that gently glides through this place where kami both virtuous and vile play out their mystic drama.
This is Miwaku No Mori: The Enchanted Forest, a new product line for Poser users* from Sixus1 Media. The creative vision of Rebekah and Killian Garner, The Enchanted Forest ushers in a new style, tone and sense of whimsical, Asian themed fantasy to the Sixus1 catalog. The first installment in the line, “Kirin” and currently available in our store (www.sixus1.com/store) and Renderosity (http://www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/enchanted-forest-kirin/102983/) with new entries in the line showing up soon, including “Sakura: Lady of the Woods” and “Kodama: The Spirit in the Trees”.
*Products are not tested in Daz Studio. However, based on user feedback it is our understanding that a large amount of our content including the original figures themselves should have a high degree of functionality in Daz Studio, while not officially supported. Contents of this product line are compatible with versions of Poser from 7.2 forward. Due to varying degrees of compatibility between various versions and feature sets of Poser and Daz Studio, a large portion of this content is compatible with both programs, however some content such as material collections are Poser only.
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
