    Then you have a suprisingly attractive teacher Mirc!

    I'm waiting for the file, I wonder to see the actual animations. But between this and Grandream's skeletons, I think I'll have to abstain from the leaderhead of the month poll again.

    The ancient era.

    These are the happy/neutral/angry poses, just to give you an idea of the animation:

    The perspective is absolutely fine, Goldflash. Please don't forget that picking out 3 frames from 121 doesn't properly show the animation. At least in this leaderhead there actually is some animation, not just the head going from happy to angry.

    I like the angry "I'm gonna knock out your lights" pose. :D

    Umm... How does she look Japanese? Since when were Japanese people European? :confused: :confused:

    Thanks for all the comments, guys!!

    I've now had the details to upload the files - but there's a slight problem: I double-checked the flcs prior to uploading and noticed a small glitch in the animation that my tired eyes didn't see last night :twitch: :blush: . I've now corrected that, but the downside is that I need to re-render all four eras through Poser before I can upload :sad: . It took around 90-120 mins per era first time round, so we're looking at around 6-8 hours before I upload. Sorry about that, but I feel it's worth waiting a short time if the end product is going to be glitch-free :cooool: .

    At least it doesn't affect the pcxs ;) !!

    She's Germanic!! I honestly don't see how you view her as Chinese or Japanese.

    :confused: to me it looks typically European clothings from the second half of 19th century..

    I don't see where people reconignize anything asian in her.

    @ R8XFT: Very good job on her!!! :goodjob: I especially like the medieval era one. Although I prefered your version with curly red hairs... But that's my personnal tastes...

    The download is, at last, available in the first post. It would have been there over twelve hours ago, but Thunderfall pm'd me five minutes after I signed off to leave for work this morning ;) .

    It's called foreshortening. Any object closer to you looks larger. It looks okay. Try looking in a mirror with your fist out. You'll see.
