Blank Boi to storybook Space Boy:
1. Load the Blank Boi base figure in Poser. To be found installed in Poser (totally counter-intiuitively) under Figures ..\3DZToonz\BlankBoi\BlankBoi.cr2
2. Load Elf Basics hood and clothing to head and body. Found under Figures ..\Elf Basics. Conform if needed.
3. Load Pose ..\BlankDolly\ Normal Shader | Dolly body gets you the eyes seen here.
4. Props | Blank Boi Features | Nose. Load to head.
5. Adjust DollyEars morphs on ears (from BlankDolly) for pointiness. Set ears slightly off-centre for added quirkiness. A little postwork clean-up will be needed re: the conjunction of the ears and the hood, when seen at at certain angles.
6. Hide (make ‘not visible’) the end of the elf boots. This makes him less obviously a generic fantasy figure. Set the “Feet swap” morph to “2” for the new ‘toon feet’ seen added below.
7. Props ..\Blank Boi In Space | BB Space Pack for an oxygen backpack. If the .OBJ is lost on loading, it’s to be found in ..\Runtime\Geometries\treasurechest\bboiclothes
8. Apply Aiko 3 poses. V3 also, but those poses will tend to reposition the figure somewhere else on the stage.
9. Change the material diffuse colours to a more space-y colour scheme.
10. Render in flat colour and lineart, and combine these two renders in Photoshop…
Not ideal. The ears are sometimes seen inside the hood. The neck-joint needs more of a spacesuit-like air-seal. The feet are ok, but not great. There are probably better figures with which to make a whimsical space-adventure storybook, but the Boi is fairly cute and it could be done. The lack of a mouth is a great advantage, since you wouldn’t have to be constantly tugging at that to get it to look right, or manually drawing it in.
