I All the anime guys on SL looked like dykes and kids with strap on beards or girly looking pretty boys, but no one has made an anime man head.

– A nice start –

This is so great, when i was doing the skins for the new Venus head, i wondered if people will mod of this head like they did with the normal M3 and can this head be turned into something great. And as soon as it got released, modders pounced on it, there were day 1 mods created within 2 hours of its release.

Nothing makes me more happy than to see peoples creativity and what they can turn my products into, i love the modding community and all the amazing things they do on sl.

 

 

– M3 Venus Anime Head –

The long awaited M3 Venus(Mature) Anime Head is here!

Things to note:

The regular M3 appliers will work with this but if the skin texture isnt created for this head specifically, it will be misaligned, eyes will work just fine tho.
Eyebrows and eyelashes made for the regular M3 or the Kemono M3 will be misaligned too so make sure the mods you are getting are made for this head specifically.

Okay so heres some more progress on the new M3 head. Im done with all the modeling and almost done texturing.

Since this head will be more realistic and just different in general than the other 2 M3 heads, not everything made for the other 2 M3 heads will work. Originally i tried to make the eyelashes and eyebrows compatible with eyelash and eyebrow textures made for the other 2 heads, but by doing so, the result was rather ugly, and on top of that, half of the eyelashes made for the other M3 heads would look distorted and weird, so fuck it.

Things that will work are the eye textures, tears and blush textures. All the UVs and texture layouts will be done in pretty much the same way as the other 2 heads, with the exception of the eyebrows, the eyebrows on this head will move like on a real human head, instead of the traditional 3 different drawn positions. Also this head will use the same paint bucket appliers, so from now on, content creators will need to specify witch head their mods are made for, to avoid confusion.

head2

All that remains now is to make all the face expressions and the rest of the skin tones.

BTW to make things clear, when i say other 2 M3 heads, i mean the original M3 anime head and the M3 kemono head.

– so does anyone actualy use this feature? –

Okay so, back when the M3 head was still in the planing stage, the preset creation window seamed like a good idea, while i still like the idea in theory, it doesnt really work in practice, due to how the whole SL character and outfits thing works. Or well, at least the way im playing SL myself, i never actually got to use the damn thing. When im creating a new character/outfit thing, i normally just make copies of the head so that i wouldnt have to spend hours fiddling around with it every time i change my char, and while the presets window makes things more streamlined, its still a bunch of extra mouse clicks that im too lazy to do, i want my avatar to look right instantly without me having to additionally click some stuff.

So anyway, i was wondering if anyone else thinks that the presets window is just a stupid waste of script memory. this is related to some upcoming changes to the M3 system, im planing to replace the SET button with a hide/show HUD button

BTW, if you voted yes, it would be helpful if you explained your reasoning in the comments.

Also, The new avatar im working on, im at the part where i rig it, im gonna show some more stuff soon.
