Beautiful Roundness

Postby Ricardo2020 » Sat Apr 09, 2022 9:34 pm

Greetings, fellow human makers.

Today, after a long hiatus, I have decided to share more of my work with MakeHuman.

As those who follow my work are aware, I say to those just coming here that my specialty is making big women. This is one of the most challenging aspects of sculpting digital human models which appear real, not cartoonish. I strive to give the female form the respect it deserves and go for a true image of the round woman as she would appear in real life. This means no items that are exaggerated or purposefully misrepresented.

To that end, there will be pictures of the lovely gals I am working on. A nudity advisory is prudent here, although my art is tasteful and erotic, not garish porn. It will, however, show just how beautiful curvy women can be.

A bit of background about this work is in order before I begin.

I use a custom workstation of more than adequate power to host Linux Mint running MakeHuman. I have created over 300 saved targets, each one a full body morph of a randomized base mesh which originated as a gender-less and race-less pink blob. It is the start point for the program, the default base.

I randomize the base to get a rough form. Then, using a collection of hundreds of custom targets downloaded from the community, I set about tweaking the sliders. I use the default tools as a rough gender, age and race assignment and then go for the custom targets to get at the final result.

Phoebe Minkell, Martian Botanist, Greenhouse Keeper

Some models are easy to build in just minutes while others take hours, even days. The one I am going to show below was made in about 30 minutes. Her name is Phoebe Minkell.

More about this wonderful woman from the Red Planet...

Phoebe loves plants. She knows the Latin names and life cycles of just about any green thing you have ever seen on Earth. She spends her spare time studying them. She also has a career as a caretaker of the greenhouses hosting them out on that far flung and hostile world.

When Phoebe dreams, she imagines what it would be like to sit on a rock, surrounded by cool water and greenery deep in the wilderness of Earth, a place she longs to go, having never been outside in her entire life of four decades plus.

Phoebe is gentle and kind, a true huggy bear. She sees a right to life in even the smallest creatures. In that regard, she is a genuine ranger, a steward of all that gives happiness, joy, and long life. She is a bundle of love, totally selfless and profoundly peaceful.

And so, I give you a frame from the Mind of this gifted gal, a moment in her dreams...

Mandy Minkell is a college student with aspirations of a degree in medicine. She is the eldest daughter of Phoebe Minkell, the loving mother of a native Martian family sans her husband who was killed in a shuttle accident at the lunar orbital station. Mandy was ten when her father died. He was her idol and could do no wrong nor tell a lie.

She remembers that time he took her Earth side not long before the tragedy and they visited a place called Appalachia. It was there where she put her feet into the cold mountain water for the first time, once she got used to the stronger gravity and learned to hop slippery rocks in remote wilderness streams.

Rest Stop on the trail

Rest Stop on the Trail


Two park rangers lead a group of ladies on a hike in the woods. They stop to take a brief rest and to ponder their surroundings as the organizer of the hike, a beautiful tall black lady by the name of Kaushagah Nugunu, a renowned tour guide from Ethiopia, talks with them about the local plant life of the deep forest.

This image is a composit of the background depicting the trees with the women, modeled in MakeHuman using custom materials for the clothing and hair, layered over using the GIMP running on Linux Mint. No postwork was done since the raw images needed no retouching to arrive at the result you see here.

The picture was resized to fit most 1080p computer screens. It is free to use as wallpaper for your desktop.

Deep Woods Hike

Postby Ricardo2020 » Sun Jun 05, 2022 5:12 pm

Delany MacCarter is a young lady from Knox County, Tennessee. She enjoys the great outdoors and likes to go hiking in the wilderness when free time allows during her university classes as a student working toward her degree in computer science.

In the image below, we see her dressed in black sport clothes, taking a leisurely stroll through a fogy forest in the early morning hours of a hot summer day.

Some facts about the model:

Name: Delany MacCarter
Age: 25, born April 19th, 1997
Birthplace: Park West Hospital, Knoxville, Tennessee
Race: Caucasian Human Female
Hair: auburn, long, straight, shiny and thick
Eyes: dark brown with deep pupils
Skin: bronze and creamy with moles
Height: 5 feet 4 inches, petite and fat
Weight: 269 pounds, size 26 petite plus
Intellect: genius, 132 IQ
Education: university student
Profession: none
Health: morbid obesity
Strength: average
Endurance: average
Constitution: low
Dexterity: right handed
Sight: 20/20
Medical Conditions: slow thyroid
Lifestyle: active

Manners: soft spoken and polite
Emotion: tender and kind
Religion: Methodist

How the model was created and rendered:

Delany was built using a custom full body target found here: http://www.makehumancommunity.org/target/ssbbw_256.html

This target was made using many other targets by the renowned MakeHuman Community developer known as Elvaerwyn.

Her profile page can be found here: http://www.makehumancommunity.org/forum/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=36894

Elv, as those of us in the community know her, has created dozens of custom targets as well as a set of plugins which give the artist an entire palette of new tools for creating models that depict women of size. Some of these affect small parts of the body while others work on the figure as a whole. They are located on the Targets page in the Assets here at the Community.

By loading a default base in MakeHuman and then randomizing this to get at a starting figure, Elv's targets were then applied in varying degrees to arrive at the final model shape. This was then saved as a complete target. MakeHuman was then closed and relaunched to load the starting default base, to which the custom saved target was applied. Finally, the model was equipped with geometries and materials to arrive at the lady you see in the image above.

Once the model was posed and rendered in MakeHuman, the resulting picture was loaded as a layer in the GIMP. A background layer was added and some filters were applied to get lens flare and color grading to create the finished image, which was scaled down in size and then exported as a PNG file with no compression, suitable for use as desktop wallpaper on a 1080p screen.
