I decided to try my hand at creating the Marvel Comic character Daken: Dark Wolverine in Daz Studio 3D.
I’ve been using Daz Studio 3 for a couple of years now, mostly because I’ve been too lazy to learn Blender like I should -but I think I’m finally done. There’s just too much wrong with it and I don’t think it’s ever going to be fixed. Most of the art of my online novel […]
Here’s part 2 of my 3D character walkthrough using Daz Studio 3. Parts 3 and 4 are up on my YouTube Channel as well. In this one I go through changing the materials and colors on your props and models. I had to move kind of quick to get in under YouTube’s 15 min time […]
This is the first part of a walkthrough showing how I design a character for True Tales of the Soryan Order in Daz Studio 3, then complete the job in Photoshop. I show the props/clothes/model I use, plus a little on installing on the Mac. Part 2 will be on posing and setting the materials, […]
This is a shot of Marie from my upcoming comic The Bill Collectors: Someone Must Pay. It’s an espionage/action tale I’ve written about before on this site. I’m still working on the sequential art, so this is another promo piece. I render the characters in Daz Studio, then use Photoshop to add the look and […]
This won’t be a true tutorial but rather an overview of my attempt to create this piece. I’ve been working on modeling the helmet of the Marvel Comics character Nova for awhile now, but between my laziness and problems I was having (some similar to those within the Blender Planning Issues article I wrote a […]
Normally I have some kind of story behind the work I do, but this one just started with me playing around with the Greeble City Blocks available for sale on the Daz site.
I didn’t even know this book existed until I saw it in one of the weekly emails Daz sends out. Apparently this official guide was written last March (2009) and it covers DazStudio 2.3. Even back then I was probably a little beyond the basics of the book. I spent many frustrating hours in the […]
This piece is a shot of the main character in The Bill Collectors, named Jackknife Jenkins. The woman with him is Marie, another Bill Collector who is usually around when Jackknife needs someone to get his back.
The Bill Collectors were the greatest cause of chaos the world had ever known…until they disappeared. One day, five years later, one of them came back.
This is a piece I did in DazStudio 3 of The Bill Collectors. A piece like this ends up taking multiple renders to get everything the way I want it.
A few years ago I had an idea for an espionage-style comic book featuring a group of characters that I called “The Bill Collectors”. I drew up a 5-page preview of it, but I wasn’t really happy with my work, and so I never pursued it further. I didn’t think that my particular style of […]
I’ve written some before on <a href=”http://www.fantasybookbanner.com/my-projects/53-my-3d-artwork/87-daz-studiojust-too-damn-slow-progress-bar-goes-backwards-and-20-minutes-to-save.html” title=”Daz Studio…just too damn slow. Progress bar goes BACKWARDS, and 20 minutes(!) to save!”>using the free 3D program DazStudio 2</a> on my other site, but now I’ve upgraded to DazStudio 3 and I thought I would write up a guide to how I install into Daz 3.
