The Name Of My Happy-Christmas-Character

It's decided: The name of my »Happy-Christmas-Character« is now set to


Thank you very much to all who participated.

Here's the outcome of the poll as of today around 12:15 CEST:

Poll: Name My Happy-Christmas-Character by TheInflater

I have to admit »Chloe« was not my own preferred name. I would have loved to see her named »Cleo« or »Daria« ... the names which are on the last places in the poll. Well, well, you do not always get what you want.

Anyway: I am going to produce some new pictures with her in the near future. Pictures of »Chloe«. :)

modo 601 Once Again And Hair Rendering

Last week I was going to create a new scene for a story I have in my head. This involves not only the creation of the place - living room with chairs and lamps - but also a new doll-character who plays a »prominent« (*cough* *cough*) role in this scene.

I was looking through the various hair models which I bought over the years (up until now roughly 80 for »Victoria 4«) and went for very classy hair which resembles the feeling of the 50's. Then I started rendering in modo ... and the hair looked AWFUL: You can clearly see every strain and the hairline looked so very bad. As opposed to like the hair looked in Poser renders.

I had this problem with a lot of hairs which were transferred from Poser to modo. But I wasn't able to nail the problem. So I decided to investigate very deeply into the problem. And I spent - now it comes - two whole work days in investigating. Yes, two days with rendering, refining, re-rendering and re-re-rendering again and again and again and again.

But I was able to nail down the problem to two factors: »Global Illumination« in modo and bad transparency maps in the hair model. Don't get me wrong: I love the hair model. But it turned out a model designed good enough to render in Poser is BY FAR not good enough to render in modo. So by using PhotoShop I made a new transmap and it instantly looked way better. Problem #2 solved.

Problem #1 was a bit harder to solve: The bad flat look of a all hair strains. A posting in the modo-forum over at »TheFoundry« (the guys who make modo) directed me to the right way: Skip Global Illumination for the hair and light the hair - and only the hair - using direct light sources. Yes, it is possible to »group« elements in a scene to be lighted completely independently. This is a big advantage to Poser and for example Carrara. Using this »trick« I was able to get a descent looking hair. Not as good as I liked it to be, but good looking for making my twisted little images again.

Did I say I LOVE modo once before? ;P

This Is Me
Coming from the good old age of the BEArchive in 1996 - which still exist - as a humble so called »artist« making photo manipulation in PhotoShop I soon discovered everything inflatable has a strong influence on me. After some pictures at the BEArchive I dropped my interest but soon came back to 3D rendering which let me better express what I have in my head. As a side effect my pictures are now original artworks (as far as you judge using Poser as creating »original art«) rather than relaying on real life photos. My pictures usually circles around inflatable woman, mostly made of rubber like balloons, sometimes plastic but always in love of being inflated up to the point of bursting. So beware: Sometimes I also show the results or the moment when this happens.

I created the term »Living Lovedoll« for this type of moving and speaking inflatable dolls and the virtual company »Cyberflating Inc.« who manufactures them (last one is also my own website).

I prefer to keep the ladies in proportion while they inflate, so you will hardly see any belly or butt inflation in my pictures. Instead you can expect lots and lots of breast inflation and/or expanding the whole body.

Last words: This is just my private own twisted fantasy! I am far from being a sick nerd (hopefully). But this type of inflatable dolls which closely resembles BDSM practices - which I am not a fan in real life - really creates a strong feeling in me.

So: Have fun looking at my pictures. :)

No RPing (Role Playing)
Update: 16-Feb-2017
I do not RP. Please respect this and do not use the comments function of my pictures for RPing. If you insist in doing so I am going to ban you. I express my little twisted universe solely in my pictures and the art style I developed. And moreover I simply do not have time to RP.

Uhm ... I usually credit those where I got some inspiration. Which one of your renders do you mean (and probably forgot to mention, sorry for this)?
