I hate Posermade models!
It crossed my mind several time. Why not start an organization in the same spirit as Ban ComicSans about Poser.
The poser-models are about to take over the world, and it will hurt us true modeller’s and artists.
Here comes two scary examples.
The front of a quite new album by the swedish metalband In Flames. It’s fairly obvious that the models at the bottom are Poser-models. Some of them are even in their standardpose!
The “artist” haven’t textured the models at all and there seems to be no proper lighting to them either. The “artist” probably rendered them directly from inside Poser.
While the cover itself is not that bad as a whole, the posermodels does make this image look worse than it could.
As you can see, this is probably one of the worlds ugliest album-covers (and CG-render) ever made! And it made the album-frontcover for one of the world’s biggest rockbands ever. Can you believe it?..I simply cannot and will not accept it.
Where’s the lighting?..Where are the textures?..Where are the shadows?..Where’s the composition?
The “artist” were so glad he could “make” such nice models in Poser that he decided, or more likely didn’t have the skill to even make them look good!
There is nothing good in this image…at all!
Thanks for listening.
