I’ve been entrenched in the Predatron bunker for around 4 weeks putting together a new product called Step Van: Zombie Hunter. Rather than doing an add-on to my popular Step Van I decided to make this completely standalone and I went way over the top with adding extra detailing and props. I must admit it was a real joy to work on this and had a blast. I was itching to use the Iray renderer in DAZ Studio. You can get pretty amazing results although it can take a little time to iron out the grain from the final render, but the wait can be worth it. Hopefully this won’t…
All packed up and waiting for a release date. This is a highly detailed Wasteground Vignette scene, a perfect backdrop to add your 3D character models for use in DAZ Studio.
Here’s a look at something both Diane and myself are putting together for the Genesis 3 Female, this is due to be released for the PA Sale in September. This one is called Private May and she’s a sexy stylised soldier with echoes of World War Two and Vietnam. It’ll include vest, pants, helmet, bracers, belt and boots, along with props such as a M1 Garand Rifle, water bottles and magazine clip. There will also be a texture add-on set which has a whole host of exciting textures.
Here’s another set that’s just gone into testing. I’m calling this one Beach Barricade, it’s a war-time style vignette with quite few individual props added. I tried not to scrimp too much on the details. Once again I’ve been getting use to the new Iray renderer in DAZ Studio which has certainly catapulted the software into the big leagues. It’s given me lots of new ideas so that I can take advantage of the near flawless rendering capabilities it can offer. This set should hopefully be ready towards the end of the month, just hope the testing goes smoothly and the guys at DAZ can get it out soon.
A sneak peak at something that’s due out in the next week in the DAZ3D store, a Barbed Wire set. I’m always wanting to create a variety of props for various projects. This one grew out of another set I’m developing for the new Genesis 3 female recently released at DAZ3D. I needed some war style props so I came up with this set.
Well I’ve finally managed to put together another project called Classical Morphing Bust HD, it’s now live in the DAZ3D store www.daz3d.com/classical-morphing-bust-hd This was fun to put building and I really enjoyed the process of sculpting all the details in ZBrush. A perfect little prop to give a little bit of classical culture to any scene.
I’ve been busy working on another addition to my popular LoREZ figure range, this time it’s a Skeleton. This has been sitting on my hard drive for I don’t know how long, but I finished the base set which is already ready to go at DAZ, but I need to finish up on a LoREZ Skeleton Army add-on, which is a big set. It gives plenty of scope to mix and match armour pieces to create different versions and I’ve included several props to make up a soldier, archer and spearman. Each armour piece comes with 3 texture versions, there 3 face paint textures in 3 colours. More poses are…
My Japanese Walled Temple along with a separate Japanese Pine Tree set is out at DAZ3D on the 2 March 2015. It was fun making these.
Here’s a little look at something I’ve just about completed the modelling stage, still to add the tiling to the walls and a few other minor additions. This is quite a large Japanese inspired scene and it was a real learning curve researching Japanese architecture. So not too far away now until texturing and I’m dying to do some nice renders. I know this is supposed to be a scene of peace and tranquillity but I can’t help feeling the Ninja rising up inside of me!
