Ever since the release of the extremely popular Animesh series, some requests have reached me time and again for a few other features pertaining to the canine. With our recent big avatar overhaul out of the way, I decided to take a bit of time and create something catering to both those requests as well as to some of my own thoughts.
This is why I’ve brought back the natural canine, which some people may remember from the older days, as an alternate canine model, with some noticeable design changes as well as new features.
Most notably, the sheath now has a proper upward angle and is longer, compared to the stubby, front-facing version of the original. The shaft also is less stylized, and features a different shape profile altogether, with a somewhat blunter tip. Textures also have seen improvements, still offering the three usual flavors of regular, detailed, as well as smooth, to fit with any avatar style, though details overall have improved and shading has been made more subtle compared to the harsher lines on the classic canine animesh.
A new feature also has been added, allowing an extra level of mess, which will be present on all animesh bits going forward – the messy sheath option. This will add dangling cum strands to the sheath, fitting with all ball size options and animating along with the rest of the bits.
As with the current animesh canine, the natural version will come in long, medium and short options, and will be sold in the same way, either separately per size, or as a fat pack for some bigger savings. Also do keep in mind that this is a different product than the current, classic canine animesh, the intention is very much to keep offering both and allow people a choice of which style they prefer for their avatar!
