Piet;
First and last posts for me so far.
My friends think I am nuts.
Don't know why. Can you save some for me?

Ha!! there are lots of nuts here - it is the place to be. But don't ever get stuck between two nuts - it can be claustrophobic!

my favorite part so far is the lacy looking brassiere...
I understand, the package is always better than the present!

some more warping and some pathetic shading. I now desperately need to find some kind of reference image where the light is coming from the left and the body is reclined in a similar fashion! b7.jpg
Will you now use this to enhance the figure of your latest female character in the Benedikt story? Then she could move from fortune teller to pole dancer!

no - she is enhanced enough. I will work on this a little more to see if I can achieve some form of realism and attractiveness. I am sorely tempted to run some filters on it and attempt to make it look cool, but better to see if I can identify problems and fix them. The warping was too extreme, it damaged the texture, but if I am lucky I can at least restore the shading to make it read right... fingers are still crossed, but I don't know, may have to step away from it for a few hours..

Well, keep us apprised of "her" progress. Boobs from nuts, who'd have thought it? :D

thank you so much everyone -- some further progress attempting to address background (body) shadow, blending, lightening the whole thing..

Two innocent acorns Piet found
While looking around on the ground.
Then he saw an curved leaf
Near his Chincoteague fief
And his Freudian brain came unwound.

I do love it.
