==> MUSIC coming up - watch your volume!
This sensuous serpent-like swaying dance is something we all have to thank the Arabs for - belly dance! It's like her hips have a will of its own! I bet it takes years of practice to develop this coordination and muscle control. But here's the thing - I don't know Arab music, so I came up with this jazzy tune with a sexy sax solo that I think fits the occasion.
The base animation came from the belly dance AniMate motion pack I bought from DAZ last night. As usual, DAZ Studio was worthless for animation editing, so I had to export it to Poser to do the job there. Note how she *intensively* stares at you - that was something I just HAD to add for extra sexiness, along with facial expressions, hand animations, and overall customization. This was rendered in quick OpenGL preview mode, but she still looks cute!
Once done with the animation editing, I now had to create the music. This sounds nothing like the new age track I first intended to create, but in the end I like this one better because a sexy babe needs a sax solo. This is a 1 minute, 24 bars song in the key of "C" (my favorite).
When the music was finished, I thought the animation was missing something, so I've spent a few hours this afternoon writing this particle system to drop flower petals all over the girl as she dances. Note this is a dynamic system, and the petals never repeat the same pattern - every petal that falls is always unique! ^____^
Figure is V4. Base animation came from AniMate's belly dance pack, final visuals by me. Original music and flower petals particle system were created especially for this. Cramming all this into about 2Mb involved a *lot* of compression. Hope you like it and thanks for coming by!
