Artist Feature: BlackAdder (Exclusive Images)
I came across Blackadder’s work based on a recommendation of an affect3d reader and was I glad I did, BlackAdder immediately entered my busty girls favorite artist list. Rarely do you get to see girls with breasts this large rendered to perfection. But there’s a lot more to BlackAdder than girls with big boobs, in fact his girls come in all shapes and sizes and they all have a natural look and a very realistic feel to them. He’s got a few things brewing in the kitching which I quetioned him about, let’s hear what he had to say.

Blackadder a nack for British comedy?
That series is to me the best TV comedy ever made! I love the dark humour in it. I have been using that name ever since.
Tell us about where you’re from and your journey to the shores of 3DX?
I’m from Denmark and started with 3D 4 years ago. I didn’t know anything at first. A friend of mine pointed me to Daz 3D, and I tried their free software. Moved quickly to Poser which became my main program, as I didn’t like the GUI in Daz Studio at all. After a year or so I got Vue Infinite, and from there it was a long learning curve to where I am now.
Which you do you prefer erotica or hardcore? Do you think there’s a place for 3DX alongside regular porn?
I think it’s 50/50 now. When I started I was more into erotica.
Of course there’s a place for 3D porn 🙂 It’s growing every day and becomes better and better. Can’t say that about regular porn.
So let’s talk about your girls. Your style is valuptous and natural? Would that be a good way to describe them?
Yeah, that sounds about right. But personally I’m a fan of big butts. I like curvy figures.
The standard V4 model I started on is far from standard now. I have made a ton of sculped full body morphs I can use on my models now, which can make them quite unique.
Who is your favorite girl? Tell us about her and her story? What makes her special?
I think it must be Gisella. Nice curvy figure. Not too much tits’n ass. Just the right amount for my taste 🙂 She was going to be a clone of the real Lara Croft when I first made her (small ass and breast). But after I finished her, I looked at the picture and said “Hmm, she is missing something”. So she got bigger ass and hips – and a breast job 🙂 I updated her with my home grown morphs, and will be the star in my upcoming comic.
Do you add girls regularly? What does it take to become one of Blackadders’ girls? Do you manage to create updates for all your girls or intend to?
I wouldn’t say I add girls on a regulary basis. Only if I think I need a new model or if someone commissioned one. Right now I’m working on a girl who would be in her 40’s, as I don’t have one of those MILF yet 🙂
The most challenging one was making the girls for SweGabe’s game “The Legend of Queen Opala II”. The tits on Farah was very hard to make, as there are not many polygons to work with when the tits are so big. I redid the tits 3 times before I was happy with the results. She will not be updated more aswell as Miriam as these two models can’t handle my default morphs.
There’s one girl I’d like to single out her name is Gisella and there’s an uncanny resemblance with Lara Croft 🙂 As I understand it you’ve changed the name for the purpose of a particular project your working on. Tell us about the story surrounding and this and what can you tell us about the project itself? When were you planning to release it?
Lara Croft and Gisella are the same. But Gisella has a different outfit and hair – and a lot of new morph features I can play with for more realistic bendings and movements.
It’s my first comic I’ve ever worked on, and I have learned a lot in the process. I started on this 5 months ago and the plan was to make about 100 images for the story I had in mind. It’s about 85% done now. I use 2 rendering programs which are Vue and Octane to make the images look as real as I can get them within my skill level – which could be better.
The comic is called “Gisella Moretti”. It’s about a rich girl who, among other things, hunts rare objects (just like Lara Croft).
It will be released soon.
You also pay a lot of attention to your male characters. How imporant are they in your story lines?
Not as important as the females 🙂 But their genitals do get some extra attention sometimes.
Do you have any specific fetishes you like in particular or wish to explore in future?
Hmm, maybe explore curvy women a bit more 🙂 Did have a thing for shiny tight clothes, but it seems to have faded out a bit.
Any big influences/ inspirations in terms of your art from within or outside of the 3DX genre?
I can’t say there was one single person who inspired me. It was many artists. But if I had just half of the skills of those artists at CGtalk, I would be very happy! They are extremly talented! I wish I could do what they do.
What tools do you use and what would be your typical work flow in creating one of your renders?
I use many tools! The main ones are PoserPro2012, Sculptris, Hexagon – and for rendering, Octane and Vue.
Setting up the scene in Poser. Export every character to OBJ. Fix them in Sculptris or Hexagon. Add the fixes back to Poser. Removing unwanted textures as Octane can only handle max 64 textures (that’s a real problem!). Export the scene out to Octane. Render in Octane.
That was the short version. It usually takes about 3 times longere per image, than it would take to render it in Poser. And I haven’t even included the time I spent on clothes and morphs.
What do you have coming up? What are your future plans?
Next I hope to finish my comic Gisella Moretti. Next it would be a follow up on her adventures from the first comic. I plan to make more comics in the future.
