3D design, with Poser software
Poser is a 3d design and animation package to easily create lifelike human figures, and a few other body types, like animals and robots. The latest release of the software, Poser version 7, is published by E Frontier.
Ever since its initial release (the first version was published in 1995) erotic artists and the porn industry used the package to create erotic or pornographic content, both images and short movies.
The good thing about the Poser concept is that with the many build-in features, you can get result quickly. The drawback is that most poser figures tend to look very similar, and have that typical smooth Poser look. Quite logical if you realise that the system is based on just two human figures, in the latest version called Sydney and Simon. On top of these 2 figures you can use build-in modifications, or third party extensions/add-on's. The original concept is recently extended with Manga studio and Anime studio, currently version 3 and 5. So basically all 3d and 2D areas are nicely covered, when it comes to human representations within a computer generated environment.
Over the years I featured quite a few erotic poser artist on the Art of love, but it's time for an update. Did the launch of a new version, with improved base models, lead to better, more vivid and realistic 3D pictures? Are there any new artists and erotic websites that are worth mentioning? And where to look for Poser extensions and other related 3d software, especially for creating adult material. A small selection of links to some great 3d erotic art, artists and poser material.

The images in the gallery are from artists Sardo Numspa and Geoff Ridgway, previously featured on the Art of Love. In my opinion their work is still some of the best erotic art out there, created with Poser.
