Heroes wearing imaginary costumes ... yep, that's classical fantasy!

As promised, here's a closer look at the costume our wannabe escapee is almost wearing. These renders spring off two series on the main blog:

They plan their escape
Room with a view

...and because I knoooow you've been wanting to see the other side of the guy's costume, here's a couple more renders which don't keep secrets.

These shots really did start out as a study of interiors and exteriors -- literally, a room with a highly-detailed outside. The rest just happened ... and where these last ideas came from, well, search me. She is absolutely fuming, and she's armed. You can hear the spitting, "Just you wait till I get outta-freakin'-here! Hell hath no fury, you understand. And he looks like he's in considerable trouble ... and I'm not even going to speculate about what's going on!

(Halfway through the renders of the furious lady here, I switched hairstyles. Had to. I was using one which looked fantastic, and then it got itself into a knot, and when I deleted it and tried reloading it, wham! It wouldn't "parent" to the model for love or money. So I said words along the lines of "Oh, bother" (actually, the air was sizzling...) and dumped it, and loaded up the Spartacos Hair. Spartacos looks a little rougher, less like a mane of velvet, but that actually makes it more realistic, and -- better! -- the model does as it's told!

All dressed up ... if you can call it that!

It took a little while longer than anticipated, but here's the adults only renders spinning off the posts on t'other blog. You've seen Jesse here before. You might have seen the tutorial where we turned "a colonial Army brat" into an uptown party boy" ... or, "The M4 Bodysuit -- now you see it, now you don't." That was more of a tutorial, telling how you start with something that looks like a scuba diver's wetsuit, and wind up with a flimsy iridescent costume which barely covers anything, and certainly doesn't conceal anything, uh, major!

So here's the dramatization. In these scenes, Jesse has finished the job of "grooming" Jarrat for then deep-cover assignment. Jarrat looks the part ... but Jesse is less worried than terrified that Jarrat is going to go out and get himself killed. If you've read Aphelion, you know what actually happened. It's the fourth of the NARC books by Mel Keegan, and a bit of research will put you in the picture. Whooooo!

If you're on this page somehow without seeing the other posts, here they are:

Midnight in the city under the green gas giant

Rhapsody in blue: male nude in the science fiction context

As promised ... the Companion in all his considerable glory! Jesse Lawrence is the prince of Companions in an age -- four centuries from now -- when human beings have been genetically "tweaked" for strength or smartness or beauty. This ain't Star Trek, guys. There are no taboos about nudity or sexuality. This is the chic look of the midnight party crowd in the city of Elysium, on a world called Avalon which orbits a green gas giant known as Zeus.

The book? Mel Keegan's Equinox, which is the second of the NARC novels. For more info on this acid-hot, razor's-edge SF series, see the main post from which these AO renders spun off -- I give the link and the caveat right here. Enjoy!

Yaoi fantasy ... whoa!

As promised, here's the Full Monty version of the story which began on the main blog earlier today. A bit of Yaoi fantasy ... which could get dramatic! In fact, if you're interested in the story that goes with the images (not to mention another half dozen renders like these, but a tad-bit less explicit, let me give you the link:

Dream Sequence -- Yaoi fantasy come alive

From the looks of this, it's all gone pear-shaped for the lad. Now what we need is a hero to come riding to the rescue, right?

Stay tuned for the next episode...
