84 Kung Fu Action Poses for Genesis 3 and 8

Posted on February 3, 2018 at 2:55 PM

These 84 poses work with Genesis 3 and Genesis 8 Males and Females. The promos use Michael 7, Michael 8 and Chiyo for Victoria 7 applied to Genesis 3 and 8. (I like to mix and match between generations.)

The poses where they are holding weapons are generic so you can use them with your weapons of choice!

Get them here!

They will work with a variety of body shapes!

Many hours spent on attention to detail!

They work just as nicely with Genesis 3 as seen below:

Free premium action pose for G3F

Posted on March 6, 2016 at 4:00 PM

Hello Folks,

I managed to squeeze in a little video to show off this awesome pose, along with a nice render demonstrating it in an actual artistic render. Only Genesis 3 Female for now but when I have some more time I hope to make it available for other Daz figures. Note that this pose does work with other Genesis 3 shapes. The shape of the clay figure in the video is Jenara from Silver available at Daz3d.

104 Explosive Poses, New Set for G2/G3 Male and Female

Posted on February 27, 2016 at 2:05 PM

So, after having been off adventuring in the world of the Corporateverse for a few years, things started shifting in the overall Multiverse which led me back to the Dazverse via a rather twisty and intricate rabbit hole. Oh, I still work full time for an ever-expaning international skin cream company, which would not even function without me, but due to various folds in space that I managed to squeeze through with ferret-like tenacity, I have managed to get my digital art production rolling again.

Upon closer inspection, I realized there were three generations of Genesis now. Well well cow bell, looks like Rip Van Winkel awakes to the future!

Thus, now that I realize how much of a fanbase Genesis 2 has gathered, and the fact that Genesis 3 is Daz's new baby, I decided to completely redo my original best-seller, Explosive Poses for Genesis, and bring it to a whole new level with Genesis 2 and 3, male and female.

Something tells me that supporting Genesis 2 as well as 3 with my new releases might help expand the usefulness of my pose sets. It may add a bit of time to the production portion of the evolution, but I think you will agree it is worth it.

So without further ado, here is my newest release: Explosive Poses for Genesis 2 and Genesis 3 Male(s) and Female(s)!!!!

104 Explosive Poses for Genesis 2 and Genesis 3: (.DUF)

  • 26 Explosive Poses for Genesis 2 Male(s)
  • 26 Explosive Poses for Genesis 2 Female(s)
  • 26 Explosive Poses for Genesis 3 Male(s)
  • 26 Explosive Poses for Genesis 3 Female(s)
