So, casually browsing the internet today, I found myself straying into a google search of Pinup Poser, out of curiosity. I don’t remember where it was, but I ran into a comment relating to the PUPEX series detailing that there were more “sexy time” poses, but “still some useful poses”. I have to say that irked me. It’s funny how those little things can get to you. One off hand comment pulls the whole thing into question.
I got to thinking about the progress of Pinup Poser since those early pre-1.0 poses, and the earlier nexus releases. As time has gone on, the Pinup Poser series has sort of mutated. At the beginning the poses were so neutral, because I didn’t really understand the Skyrim skeleton yet.
As time has gone on the poses have become more and more varied. I didn’t really consider it a bad thing. Thw aforementioned “sexytime” poses came in simply as a result of reaching for new source material. I’ve always striven to keep my poses within a certain level of perversity, so as not to go too far to take the “art” out of “artistic nude”, as many people use them for that sort of thing, myself included.
Thinking about this, I started asking myself, can I actually consider taking pictures in Skyrim as “art”? I felt pretty damned silly when I realised that was how I was looking at it.
Talk about an attack of srsfaec. Letting random comments get to me and suddenly I’m wondering if my poses are artistic.
But hey, let’s face it, I’m never gonna get a fancy photographers studio, so there’s no reason I can’t get a little artsy once in a while!
A lot of the EX3 has been inspired by artistic nudes, pinups, artist’s drawings, so it’s much more geared toward that kind of shooting.
I hope you’re all enjoying the incremental updates, rather than having to wait and be teased for a month, and my apologies if you can do without the insights into my processes.
Once again, this WILL NOT WORK without the main package installed, and unless you’re just updating from yesterday’s alpha, don’t forget to run FNIS before use.
Lastly, PUPEX3 is now up to number 225. DPoser is only up to pose 7. Don’t start leaving comments about missing poses.
Enjoy your alpha!
