Product Information

Whether your taste in statuary is elegant or tacky, you can't go wrong with Sculptural Genesis. This kit contains everything you need to turn Genesis into an art object, an imposing caryatid, a fine porcelain figure, a religious sculpture, a lamp, or a table.

First you'll find poses that will work for a wide range of Genesis shapes, based on a wide range of real sculpture. Top and bottom splits are included so you can mix and match.

Next there's a complete set of hand poses, including several designed for holding objects in order to make allegorical statues - hold skulls, swords, flowers, tables, and whatever else you find in your prop library, with minimal or no hand adjustment needed.

Several props are included for holding, including an orb, a scepter, a hammer, a sickle, and a tabletop. Three complete lamp tops with bulb, hardware, and shades are also included.

Multiple bases and column toppers finish off the props part of this kit.

A full set of shaders is included, ranging from lampshade fabrics you won't see anywhere else, to colored porcelain and cracked plaster.

Several utility poses and presets make it a snap to change figure scale, shader tiling, and other scene features.

Lastly, character presets for the classical male and female characters seen in these promos are included.

Additional Details

  • To use the Sculptural UV set, apply shaders to the figure's material zones, then apply the Sculptural UV preset from the materials folder, and it will switch the UV set for you.
  • For solid shaders, Genesis looks best with the eyelash and tear materials set invisible with specular set to black and 0%. For non-solid shaders, hiding the mouth parts and eyes is also best. There are presets in the materials folder for this.
  • The Sculptural UV set is optimized for tiling shaders, using a modified planar mapping with relaxed edges and a complete front/back overlap. This means it should not be used for traditional figure textures that require separate texture areas for the front and back of the figure.
  • Many of the poses are designed to hold a sword. If you don't have a suitable sword in your collection yet, I personally love Valandar's weapons.
  • Traditional Staffordshire figures often hold flowers; I recommend any of the flowers by Predatron for this.
  • Stonemason's Alcove of the Highlands and Jack Tomalin's Dimocrates work particularly well with Sculptural Genesis.
  • Because statues can do things that aren't strictly possible for humans, these poses are designed to be applied with limits turned off.

Resolved Issues

  • None

Known Issues

  • The Poser Companion Files DO NOT include shader presets. The Sculptural UV set can still be applied with the supplied preset and the texture maps manually applied.
