In the 80's I fronted an underground band called Crematory, which became a well known group in the Okanagan by the mid 90's, playing with "Who's on Bass" when they came into town.
Over the Holidays I got together with the surviving bandmates and we reminiced about the good old days and we pulled out the old box of 4-track demos.
The 20+ years were unkind to the tapes, migrating plasticizers leaves the tape brittle. Magnetization dies off... needless to say the recordings

Created this from V4 and the hair is an old Catgirl figure, but I doubled it up.
She had some extreme morph dialing, and a massive amount of Morph-brush work to get her all big and curvy like her Comic book counterpart. I'll most more pics in a bir showing more of her curves in action.

I'm currently rendering Illustrations for my next project, a Graphic Novel called "The Legend of the Magic Compass".
The First sketch draft is 32 pages (looks like scribbles and jotted down indesipherable glyphs), with a text script written in "Write it Now" Novel writing software.
I have gone into Poser 10 and created my characters from various older figures.
Gien (Jin), and The "slave-girl" are in the render.

I'm so glad I can finally post here in the Blogs.
I'm a 3D modeler that creates personal models for Illustrations for publishing.
I also use Poser, but not really for Rendering out poser-art. I use it for composition of my images for comic panels.
Once in a while I'll render out a poser scene and post it, but I'm not very serious about it.
I'll post more about what I'm doing as far as Illustrations and Graphic Novels. I'll be using
