MRL Icons: Shamrocks by MorganRLewis
MRL Icons: Shamrocks
The first, but by no means the last, set of icons I'm creating for Daz Studio and Poser. The idea here is to provide some common icons that can be used in various ways. Put them on a wall as a sign or plaque, add a torus and use them as an earring, and so forth. It's long seemed to me that basic iconography was underrepresented in the available 3D objects, so here's my attempt at making up the lack. First up, in time for St. Patrick's Day, is a set of clovers / shamrocks.

Free for use in commercial or non-commercial renders and animations.

These are not to be redistributed or sold without my express written permission.

In this package is a set of icons in four different shapes. There are 3-leaf and 4-leaf clovers in both stemmed and stemless varieties. The stemless varities load in at approximately 6 inches in size, "north-south". (I.e., if a letter A is arranged north-south, the peak is at north, and the feet are at south). The stemmed varieties are sized so that the leaves are approximately the same size as the leaves on the stemless varieties.

Each icon loads at approximately 0.5 inches high (thick), and comes with an elevate morph that raises the top without distorting the rounded edge the way a vertical scale operation would.
Oh. Remove the troublesome edge from the bevel calculation. Then bevel it separately afterward. FIFTEEN YEARS PEOPLE. That's how long it took me to think up that trick. Fifteen years of trying increasingly complicated ways to approach it that didn't work. Sometimes it's just right under your nose.
I had somehow managed to forget what a pain in the neck sharp corners are when beveling.
Hmm... I know I said the icons would wait, but St. Patrick's Day is just a few weeks away. Perhaps I should push the shamrocks out quickly, and the rest could wait?
As mentioned yesterday, I've spent today working on updating all the existing positioning scripts so that there are both Daz Studio and Poser versions for everything involving my Superhero Rings. I've just uploaded the Victoria 4 positioning scripts, which was the last one. From here on out, it's all new stuff to work with, and while that may come a little slower (since I'll be starting from scratch), all of that will be both Poser and Daz Studio compatible to begin with.

Well, almost all. I do plan on attempting positioning scripts for Poser's Rex and Roxie figures, and since those figures don't work in Daz Studio, there's no sense in trying to make DS-compatible scripts for those. I'll probably tackle those two first, but we'll see. I anticipate them being difficult since my creation process involves Daz Studio... I'm sure you see the difficulty there.

Also on the way are position sets for other Poser content characters, such as Alyson, Simon, etc. When I started doing the rings and scripts, I'd never anticipated tackling these figures because I never anticipated owning a copy of Poser. I started out with Daz Studio because it was free, and never looked back. But I won a copy of Poser 10 in a forum contest, and so those figures are now on the table. I've also got just a couple non-human figures, as well as Hivewire's new Dusk figure, planned for ring positioning sets... and a new trio of rings on the way eventually, though they'll take some time to model.

It was. Celebrated a day early, and just took it easy on my actual birthday.
