Mel's Fantasy Places Backgrounds
There are 10 backgrounds.
--------------------------------------

If you want to match an atmosphere in the background, you can either activate the atmosphere in Poser or use one of my shortcuts.

 

My method:

I save my render as a psd file and overlay the background image in a separate layer below the render in photoshop.

I take my color picker and choose one of the lightest shades in the background image.

Then I use my layer styles and add that color as a color overlay layer onto the render, and set the layer style to soft light.

I used 100% for the image example enclosed.

You can set the opacity to your preference.

I deepen the color as one of my final steps in the post work.

Bar fight Poses for Genesis 2 Males

$9.95

 

When a fight breaks out in your favorite drinking establishment, your instincts tell you that your only two choices are fight or flight; which will you choose?

Flight could mean cowering behind the bar and peeking over, or just cowardly crawling towards the nearest exit.  Fight means to make your best moves to become the victor of the skirmish. 

Designed for the Genesis-2-Male (G2M) figure, this set of 24 paired and 3 single poses should work with all of the Genesis 2 Male based Characters* for a total of 54 poses. 

Each set of paired poses and single poses have been saved as individual pose presets for maximum flexibility and include these two versions: 1. World Centered in scene, and 2. Neutral to use anywhere.

*World Centered Poses include:
01-Block        01-Swing     02-Block       02-Chair     03-Crawl      04-Fallback     04-Shove
