Meshbox Design and partner Mirye Software announce the immediate availability of the ultimate Christmas character compatible with Smith Micro Poser and DAZ 3D’s DAZ Studio – Toon Santa. Each year, Meshbox Design releases a new version of this popular character, based on a new theme.
Introducing Young Santa
Toon Santa 16’s theme is Young Santa. Before he was Santa Claus, Kris Kringle (or Young Santa) had many adventures in his youth. Young Santa is a free adventurer who travels through the Many Worlds that Are, where he made new friends and learned much about himself along the way – and he also picked up a great deal of knowledge of the natural world, and a little magic that would help him later in life after he establishes himself at the North Pole.
Young Santa is younger and thinner than his future self, so the base character utilizes the free 3D character Norm 3D, which you can download at no cost from the Mirye Software website.
Young Santa includes special clothing, props and poses that reflect his adventurous nature. For best compatibility, we recommend Smith Micro Poser 11.
