So, every person who works on this site has certain fetishes or sexual turn-ons. In miro’s case, you have girls with big racks and even bigger cocks. With The Dude, there’s girls gussied up in pink. Marie has a love for the hard dick. While I have mentioned a desire for exhibitionism and public sex, it’s not as strong as one other fetish, one that’s also as…risky as it is risqué.
Let’s talk about monster sex and monster 3DX, shall we?
Yesterday, 3DX artist Dizzydills dropped a trailer of sorts for his next project, an animated continuation of his Secrets of the Pharaoh series. You can find the trailer here. From a technical standpoint, both miro and I agreed that it was quality animation at work.
It brings up the larger question: Why isn’t there more monster 3DX out there?
The Great Potential of 3DX
I was drawn to 3DX not because of dickgirls, but because of monsters. As I’ve said in the past, my gateway to 3DX was from the Stormbringer era, particularly the likes of Drone447 and Gonzo. I’m fond of the classic animation The Princess Comes of Age. It’s hard to explain what makes monster appealing to me. But perhaps it’s just the mere sight of a girl enthralled while in the embrace of a bizarre creature or smattering of tentacles that is extremely arousing, showing she can enjoy sex with whatever she wants.
Moreover, there’s a greater artistic potential that comes with creating monster 3DX. It’s one thing to make a male or even somewhat humanoid male using current assets from Daz. But to create a monster or an alien or other creature, you often have to build something from scratch, including its skeleton (so that it can move properly). That takes talent and creativity, the likes of which we don’t usually see in more vanilla forms of 3DX. I admire great efforts that go into creating these fine creatures, developing something unique for the girls to play with and enjoy. In essence, you can be very stylish without having to lose realism in the process. You can also afford to be very artistic, regardless of your style.
Of course, with my favorite fetish comes…issues. For one, a lot of monster porn is non-consensual, which is a big turn-off in my book. There’s also another problem with the monster scene in general that we’ll get to in a moment. Still, there are a lot of artists who are phenomenal at providing quality 3DX artists of girls fucking aliens or other creatures and having fun while doing so.
Dizzydills in particular I’m fond of. One of his old archived sets, Consentacle with Sylvia, was based on an idea I pitched to him. That he continues to do prominent work and builds many of his creatures from scratch shows the passion and creativity he has in the field. And it is rare to see girls having this much fun with it. It’s part of the reason I started posting free stories in his forums based on his characters.
There are others in the field who do great work. Jessica Anner, a skilled animator, primarily focuses on monster dickgirls. While unusual, the combination of monster and dickgirl actually works really well in this situation, and there’s a liveliness to the work that even miro can appreciate. On top of that, you have regulars on our site such as Jared999D, 3DZen, and others who at least partly partake in monstrous activities.
Creating is the Hardest Thing To Do
So why is there less monster 3DX? And why – in our case – is it rather…tame?
The first and second question have a lot of different answers that explain both. One is the limitations of 3DX itself. Unlike 2D art, where you don’t have to worry about anatomy even at a human level, 3D art faces the issue of posing. As The Dude mentions in his tutorials, every model in 3D posing must have a rigging, which is basically a skeleton. That’s what helps it move.
Given most models are human or humanoid, you often have to build your tentacle creatures or abominations from scratch. Most artists don’t have the time or patience to do that, so they buy models or related assets…except not many people are willing to make those assets, and those that do tend to be not the best. I’ve had more than one 3DX artist tell me they would do monster or tentacle. Of course, they also say there’s little in the way of good assets on those fronts. So you have a paradox here.
The Animal in the Room
Then there’s the Z word, one that is an issue in regular monster porn as well. I’m talking about zoophilia. On a very very technical standpoint, monster porn as a whole qualifies as this; for “any sex between a human and non-human” is the standard definition of this term. That means elves, robots, aliens, and other creatures are in the same league as regular animals. The law is very messy in this regard; as I have no legal expertise, I cannot say what is or isn’t true. What I can say is, from a business standpoint, it’s hard for us to even sell “tame” stuff because banks and financial institutions that dictate whether we can accept money from their customers tend to err on the side of caution a little intensely.
Of course, it’s not just us that has to deal with this. It’s any artist who takes a business stance by setting up a subscription site or something similar. One prominent 2D artist who runs a subscription site got told by her payment processor that she was conditionally allowed to post tentacle stuff. That meant they could revoke that ability at any time for any reason.
It doesn’t help that many artists who do monster skirt the line or straight-up do this sort of thing regardless. That we cannot defend, even for those we like. Some artists will take an attitude to this, but all they’re doing is being unhelpful.
Some will point to crowdfunding sites such as Patreon and mini-stores such as Gumroad or Sendowl; they turn a blind eye to such things. Perhaps that is good for artists who maintain a small operation. But if they want to go big, they’ll hit a brick wall.
All of this, of course, doesn’t change my love for monster 3DX. If I had choice between, say, writing a sequel to Girlfriends 4 Ever and an animation that involves a beautiful girl embracing the company of various monsters, I would choose the latter. That would probably surprise miro, but I know where I stand. It would be wonderful if we had more monster 3DX, for it would greatly demonstrate the potential of the medium. Moreover, such diversity strengthens 3DX as a whole.
As said, our hands are tied. If I had it my way, we’d have a far more prominent selection of monster products alongside our fine dickgirl porn. We’d also promote artists in the field more frequently. But we play the hand we have. Perhaps someday soon, monster 3DX will be something for everyone to enjoy.
