A nice summertime scene that’s in testing right now. This image is part of the add-on texture and props set. So it’ll eventually come in a bundle with a base set, more textures and a collection of poses for both Genesis Male and Female. This was great to work on and finally do some decent ArchViz renders in DAZ Studio with Iray. A lot of the texturing was done in Substance Painter as well. Diane helped out with some cushions and throws, and some clean-up on the poses.
Here’s look at the Italian Scooter Extra set which includes props, poses and textures. Had fun putting this together. I used the Genesis 3 Female from DAZ, this is one of the poses that’s included. It’s all now in testing
Having such a love for all things to do with Italy I’ve finally got to trying to finish off my Italian Scooter that’s been laying around on my hard drive for so long. I can now start thinking about doing some classic Italian looking scenes using Iray in DAZ Studio. This is a test of the basic shaders at the moment. I need to add some more textures and set up the rigging. There’s also a nice little add-on of a few props and poses. Not far off from being finished now.
Here’s a free simple little utility prop for DAZ Studio and Iray to help test your lighting and tonal values. Download link at foot of page. There are 4 spheres and a gizmo to show direction of your HDR map. The first sphere is set up to take the default HDR map that is loaded when DAZ Studio first loads. When you look at it you can quickly see where the map will be position on the Iray scene dome. You will also see at a glance just where the main bright spot of the map will be located. This is useful when adding any additional lights such as a…
The Giant Fantasy Snake is a 3D model for DAZ Studio that I’ve been wanting to make for quite some time and I finally finished it and got it uploaded into testing last week. It will be a great addition for some of the other fantasy styled figures I’ve already made including the LoREZ Skeleton you can see in the image below. We have a few adder snakes down here in Cornwall just glad they don’t grow to this size!! Hopefully this won’t be too long before it’s in the store. You can check out some of my other fantasy figures by going to DAZ3D
With the latest release of a well anticipated sci-fi blockbuster I was really inspired to produce something that would fit the genre. So I’ve added to my ever popular 14MU range of science fiction styled products by coming up with the 14MU Space Dock. It’s a classic looking scene that is pretty huge in terms of your standard looking DAZ Studio product. It should have quite enough space to park a certain iconic spaceship if ever it was to drop by for a visit, I think you might know which one I’m making an inference to! This scene has been built in essentially 3 parts with a front and back half along with a…
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.
