Created by me, using Sculptris, Shade 14, and Poser Pro 2014 Game Dev SR5.
This is an articulated prop (PP2) with Dynamic Hair. Therefore, it can only be used with versions of Poser which can support dynamic hair.
Free only for commercial renders and non-commercial renders.
Do not use inside Second Life.
Do not use inside gaming platforms as an imported geometry.
Do not convert the geometry into another 3D format.
The Merlion is a fantastical creature; it was created to represent the Republic of Singapore as a tourism icon, there is no deeper cultural meaning to it. My version of the Merlion is a deformed or Chibi version, to borrow the descriptor from Japanese manga and anime pop culture.
You can rotate the head along the x,y and z axes to achieve some expression of overall posing, but that's about it. This is not a rigged character. In fact, the head can pop right off for horror effects. Make the Chibi Merlion more transparent, and you have an even more scarey effect. But cute scarey, not terrifying scarey.
I may release a version with fishtail, spouting water, and lazer-beam eyes, which is what the various Merlion statues in Singapore actually have. Look out for it.
