Me Lord i was thinking about Tali. Is it possible to add some kind of a flex to her suit make her mouthpiece glow for simulate speech, while wearing the suit? Would be better, than if theres a bodyskin for it, because we wouldnt need to cut the shots to thousands of little pieces, when animating. You know what mean? What´s your thoughts on that in general?

LordAardvark

Honestly not at all a bad idea, and certainly easier to work with than the janky Bodygroup/Skingroup Slider tool.

Happy New Year, LordAardvark. This is not a question, simple say, your update Frozen ladies this is true new year's gift. They are wonderful, canon morphs and canon dresses are very nice. Waiting finished version with finished outfits. Pity other princesses your universe can't to join them... Good luck, creative success and new ideas.

LordAardvark

Well, I mean, nothing is technically stopping you from pairing them with Elizabeth, Sheva, and Lulu. Art style clash is a fuck, but that means nothing to anyone determined enough.

And thank you for the kind words. I have no idea how long finishing the outfits will take. Frankly, Elsa is on my shitlist for how terribly her canon outfit's bodygroups went. And Anna's been on my shitlist since day one, where just her headhack was a nightmare - to say nothing of building her faceposing.

To say I am reticent to work on them is an understatement. If I can come up with a compelling project with them, that'd certainly help. Easiest way to motivate me to get something done is to need it for an imminent project. Unfortunately, my projects are full up right now. Maybe once Overbreed Episode 1 is done, though, before I tackle Blue Star Episode 4.

Hello there, I've seen some of your models recently has a "canon" and "curvy" variants. Are you planning to continue this? I must admin it's pretty neat to put Lizzy in Zelda's pants and more combinantions would be great, but I know how timedevouring it will be, so just asking

LordAardvark

Characters that are put on non-canon bodies will. So for example, Elizabeth and Liara will. Moxxi and Lulu, I am considering the curvy bodies to be close enough to canon for them, since they are canonically buxom sex icons anyways. Similarly, all of the DOAFantasy ladies will have canon counterparts.

Hello L.A. Just checked the surprising stream on saturday. I have not the time of 6 hours to watch it whole, but i did looked a little bit into it and saw that jill had red cheeks O.O This is something new to me. Does the Jill model, that you had used, have such a skin group? is this a new thing for new releases? I think other characters you made do not have such a skin group or am I wrong on this on? Its actually a nice thing to have. Will you update other models with that feature?

LordAardvark

It is a feature that was first built into Zelda, using wrinklemaps to add a "blush" slider. We modified Jill expressly for the stream project to have it as well, since the story that our guest director Javi is telling has Jill as a shy, insecure futa. Blushing when she's embarrassed fits the tone of the piece.

Frankly I totally forgot that wasn't released to the public. I will look into doing that tomorrow.

As to whether other models will have it, honestly I'm not sure. Tamaki has it, too. It really doesn't take much effort to build, so... I mean, I guess why not, right?

I wonder how you can integrate patreon with your website. Any guides for this ?

LordAardvark

Painfully. Especially since the Patreon API is semi-abandoned. More detail would need to be filled in by my web developer.

Hey Happy new year lord aardvark. Kind of a noob question but how do I import Samus DazV5 into Daz for editing? Is there a process for Sfm lab models to daz?

LordAardvark

Fuck if I know, and good luck.

Hello. Happy New Year! I noticed that on the wheel you use for your streams, you have 2B. Is there a model of her that’s available to the public, or is she still a WIP?

LordAardvark

Neither. The Wheel is models yet to be built. That is the entire purpose of the Wheel.

And happy new year. Here's hoping it's better than whatever the fuck the past two years were.

What a surprise you had spinned the wheel twice yesterday! And even bigger that it choose liara! Thats why i want you to remember about my older question about including glyph to liara. Please help us with a good quality drone model for annoying liara while she´s busy with anything ... something ... i dont know. I just really love that little drone XD And also i´ve got a thought about the textures you were talking about on stream. Wolves makes not a casual asari skin, like i thought it was the plan, but a specific one for Liara, right? This is very ambitious and just wow if everythings going the way you want it. But what is about the other asari on the wheel? I mean samara and anywhere in a far far away future i think you wanted aria for your blue star project yourself? Did you discussed them with wolves? Are they getting unique skins themselves? I mean it sounds like a lot of fun, but also a lot of work and time. Thats why i was very much surprised to hear that on stream about liaras skin.

LordAardvark

Ah yes. I will have to look into finding Glyph's model. I can only imagine what his internal model would be called... I looked it up, and it seems someone already ported him to XNALara - and even included his bowtie! I'll have to double-check to see how he looks in-game, but I think that'll be a solid base.

As to the Asari skins, the goal is that the texture he builds for Liara will be (relatively) easily translated to any other Asari, be them specific Asari like Benezia and Samara, or generic Asari. Of course, whether or not that actually ends up being the case remains to be seen...

Want to ask about SFM, is there a way to easily port props models from other software like blender or mmd or xnalara to SFM ?

LordAardvark

Lucky for you, I've started writing a comprehensive guide about exactly that. It's gonna take me a while, since it is a low-priority project beside everything else I do. But it will answer exactly that!

Here's just a little sample of the tone of the writing, that was posted on Twitter.

The entire article is going to be written in that same cheeky style, while at the same time being so bogged down in technical information that you'll wish it was even cheekier than it already is.

Because by god technical writing is some of the most boring shit in existence, and I have to entertain myself as the author somehow.

Will be another anim using RE girls (Jill, Rebecca, Sheva, Helena, Claire, Sherry or Lady D)?

LordAardvark

A Rebecca one-off has already been assembled and is awaiting its release. Will probably be in February.

Similarly, Rebecca and Sherry have a large cinematic universe they share. As I am writing this out, brainstorming is being done on that front. Don't expect anything to come from it though. We've been brainstorming it for probably 6+ months now.
