For me, summer layoff from my current factory job in Fort Madison will probably be between May and early July, but that's not really the subject of this post.
The subject is someone else's layoff, or reduction in working hours. My DAZ Studio 4.6 model "Lacy" is being replaced by "Annabelle," another young blonde-haired lady having many of Lacy's personality quirks, hobbies, and personal preferences. You see, I have made a switch to largely use genesis 2 (Victoria 6) as opposed to the original Genesis 1 (Victoria 5). Lacy, of course is V5/Genesis 1 and I have no really practical way of switching her over to Genesis 2, at least for the time being. So, most of her modeling work is being cut. I see DAZ Studio as mainly an art reference for 2D drawings and comic poses, and I want the latest rigged figures, so unlike some people so sentimentally attached to the old Victoria 4.2, I want to upgrade so I can get the latest advancements and morphs so I am drawing more of a person and than a doll. You will still see Lacy around, as I am having her be the "pretty blonde" in my upcoming comic "Poachers."
