I first started in CGI more than 15 years ago with a used copy of Poser 3. The main supported figures were made by DAZ. Vendors cranked out skimpy wear for the female character. The male character was lucky if they made him pants. The stores were full of sexy poses of the female showing off her bits. The male's poses were mainly him standing for the female to lean against. A buyer had plenty of character morphs and textures to choose from, as long as they were skinny white women.

Ah, Progress.

Even with all the new applications, new figures, and new rendering engines, we are still at it. We still slap the female into clothes that a hooker would find ridiculous and drape her into a position not seen outside of a porno. We throw in a few lights and props and click Render. Instant gratification. Maybe I'm projecting. However, when I view the galleries of other DAZ and Poser artists, I may not be far off. I wonder if they bought Victoria 4 twenty bikinis.

Right now, I'm sure you're saying, "Hey, Willdial, have you seen YOUR gallery?" You are right in calling me a hypocrite. I'm tired. What I describe is about 90% of my gallery here at DeviantArt and about 100% of my gallery at Renderosity. Occasionally, I use Victoria 2 and Victoria 3. But, all I have for them is skimpy wear and pinup poses. That's what was available and what I purchased. This has been a 15 year demonstration that Sex Sells.

My very buying has helped to create a dangerous overspecialization in the marketplace. Several months ago, Zev0 posted that product sales numbers drop to zero within a few days after release. He also said items for the female figure sell better than the male's items, especially the sexy clothes. Vendors, in attempt to make any sort of profits, focused in on that.

Now we are left with stores that are full of skimpy female clothes. That's going to make it even harder for DAZ and Smith Micro to sell to the more profitable video game makers and professional animators. Unless they are making Attack of the Bikini Bimbos, most of the content is going to be useless.

Maybe, I'm having a mid-render crisis. But, I've found having scenes where the characters actually do something to be far more rewarding. In my recent uploads, I have Laura warning Melina to be careful and Melina showing off. I also have Elsa talking on her phone. Those scenes took far longer and more work to setup. But, I found them to be more rewarding. You will be seeing more scenes of life from me. I'll still post some pinups. I have huge back log of them.

Thanks for letting ramble.

Hi!  I really love your work!  Do U ever do requests?  I'd love it if U could show me as a topless pole dancer!  (Which I used 2 do years ago.)  I look a lot like the girl in this pic U made, except my hair is lighter, and my nipples are more pink.  This guy did a pic of me recently (other thumb), and it is SO AWESOME!  I'd be SOOOO honored if U would consider it! :)  THANK U 4 YOUR GR8 WORK!!!  :)
