Re: The "Bride" of the "M'Ress Appreciation Thread"

If I ever resurrect my web-comic, there's a gag in a related vein I'd like to depict. Instead of rubbing her fur the wrong way, someone starts toying with her ear. Every so often that person just barely brushes her ear, causing it to flick. Finally about the fourth and fifth time, she spins her head to catch the annoying digit between her teeth, not breaking the skin, but a wicked gleam in her eye as though threatening to do so.

Sincerely,

Bill

Back when I had cats, I'd stroke their heads. I remember doing it to Whiskers, and she'd lower her ears each time. And because I was doing it rhythmically, she'd anticipate it. Then I stopped stroking her, but she still lowered hear hears. She didn't react, but I thought it was funny.

But I was very young...

Re: The "Bride" of the "M'Ress Appreciation Thread"

I've been away for a while. Had to make more time for my webcomic, Frankenstein Superstar- http://frankensteinsuperstar.com

I recently did a guest spot on another excellent comic, Mallville Rules. I think you guys might like to out how I made characters from both comics indulge in a little Trekkie cosplay...

Re: The "Bride" of the "M'Ress Appreciation Thread"

That's rather cool! "Franky" makes a great "old school" Klingon. Also, your comic is a hoot! That "flash-aside" to Dr. Smith and the Robot...Why did I view this at work?! (Good thing I'm in a secluded corner cubicle!)

Sincerely,

Bill

Re: The "Bride" of the "M'Ress Appreciation Thread"



I tested Achronicity's updated version of "Kasa for A3", a set that morphs Aiko's feet into paws, either plantigrade (flat footed) or digitigrade (standing upon the toes). This beta has more features, like morphs to scale the toes, spread them, or even "square" the knuckles. It even has morphs for built in claws, even one to retract them. It's not publicly available at this time. But if you contact him at Fur Affinity, he will probably negotiate a deal with you. I think he is selling his stuff on a "one on one" individual basis now rather than through an on-line store.

Anyway, in addition to the toes, I experimented with the fingers. There is no dedicated product to affect the fingers though Capsces' "Furries for...Melody" which uses A3's body has some dials to tweak them. However, I just toyed with them directly, making the last and middle segments of each digit shorter and "fatter". Messing with the innermost segments distorts the hand. Meh, the final effect is "passable". At least the fingers no longer look "elven".

That got me thinking about claws for the fingers. After I made this render, I got an idea. I loaded the "gloves" from the A3 CatGirl set (inspired by Felicia of the "DarkStalker" videogames). I turned the "gloves" material zone "invisible" which revealed the built in claws. I conformed them to M'ress and then adjusted all ten of the gloves' last finger segments making the claws poke through the tips of A3's now stubbier fingers. I applied a few subtle poses to M'ress' hhands and so far, the claws have followed and remained in their adjusted positions. I might convert the claws into "props" and simply "parent" them to A3's fingers. I'm not sure which might prove the more stable solution.

As usual, here are the credits.

Aiko 3...DAZ.com
Body textures...Daio and Verge Visible
Face and body morphs...Beth Capsces
"Paw" morphs...Achronicity
Tail prop...Little Dragon
Uniform...Oshikai
Mane...Ali

Sincerely,

Bill

She's continually a "work in progress". I think the current hair and uniform meshes have been the best enhancements.

Bill, any chance you can make another "vacation shot" (recently posted) with this original version?

Q2UnME
Looks like it took me forever to get around to it, but per your request, here's the A3 based M'Ress at the beach and wearing a bathing suit slightly fancier than the grass skirt in the original.



...and she still has that blasted Saurian Brandy bottle!

Sincerely,

Bill

Nice. Looks like you've just about nailed her.

Very artistic, too.

As for the bottle, she must like to party hard.

Re: The "Bride" of the "M'Ress Appreciation Thread"

Thanks for the kind words, guys. The longest part was trying to track down that distinctive side skirt. I just could not remeber where I stored it. And, as this often happen, it turned out to be stored in one of my most frequented folders. And I didn't see it for days! Funny who those things happen.

Sincerely,

Bill
