Product Information

New from Handspan Studios, Sandy for Teen Josie 8. A fresh face for your Genesis 8 collection, she is the essence of a California girl. She is athletic and at home in the forest or on the beach. Her emotions are changeable as the ocean. She has youthful skin that glows with the touch of warm sun. She has three translucency options which range from paler to the deepest tan. Her brows are made with diffuse overlay in combination with bump and glossy color. They are optimized to look natural and fine with a gentle arch, in several color options. She comes with No Brow map versions for use with fiber mesh brows and a bonus 3 mat presets for Victoria 8 fiber mesh brows to make them lighter and finer to match her textures. While she prefers the natural look she has 4 full makeup options, 5 nail and 10 lip colors, 5 blushers and mascara with a carefully made lash transparency that will render well, even in closeups. Her soulful eyes have 9 color options as well. Includes easy to apply Shaping and MAT poses for all her maps and other options. Sandy also has an additional face shape for Fantasy art with a shade more of the animal about her and that ellusive forest magic.

Teen Josie 8 and Daz Genesis 8 Female Head Morphs are required for the character shape. (Daz G8F Head Morphs is required for part of the Sandy Fae Head morph only, Sandy Human head and Sandy Body work without it.) The maps and MAT poses can be used with any Genesis 8 or Genesis 3 Female based character. The MAT poses are for Daz Studio Iray only.

Sandy has separate morphs for her 2 head and body shapes and sliders for each so you can use just the face or just the body easily with your other favorite shapes. There are Shaping dials for each as well, both for the plain morphs and CTRL dials that will apply all the morphs and figure shapes for you.

Additional Details

  • Be sure to restore the figure morph before adding a second shaping pose on. For instance Sandy Human and Sandy Fae will not overwrite one another, they double, best use one or the other (or mix them to a combined value of 1.0).
  • When applying lip, nail and brow colors due to the use of shader parameters rather than maps they may not appear to have changed in preview mode or until fully rendered.
  • Brows: “All Maps” pose will apply the brows, colors can be fine tuned by applying the closest color preset (red, blonde etc) and further adjusted with the diffuse overlay color and glossy color parameters. Once you select “No Brows” pose (for use with mesh brows) the brow colors won't work right again unless you select “Brows On” first which will re apply the brows version of the texture, bump and specular maps. You don't need to use it if you never use “Brows Off”. If you select a makeup with “Brows On” it will apply the default light brown brow color, adjust to another color using the brow color MATs.
  • Brow colors and Sandy Blush 01-04 MATs both use the face diffuse overlay channel so you can only use one or the other. The default brow that you get when you apply All Maps does not use Diffuse Overlay so it can be used with the blush. You can use No Brow and a mesh brow from another character set, included are 3 mats for the Victoria 8 mesh brow which is a good match for the shape and the mats will make it match. Another option is to render in layers. The makeup maps include the blush on the painted texture maps so those will not interfere with the brow colors diffuse overlay.
  • Lashes: Before applying MAT pose preset make sure to select the Genesis 8 Female Eyelashes figure in both the scene hierarchy or parameters *drop down list* and eyelashes in the surfaces tab as well. You can adjust the lash colors with base color parameter. The character presets will apply the Lashes Natural version automatically.
  • Render Settings: Optimized for good detail, fairly fast. This will not overwrite anything in the environment part of the render settings (no effect on lighting). Promos were made using these settings and Dimension Theory lights.
