Hi Guys.

Normally I do my illustrations, painted in the traditional way, with gouache on paper. Or I make a good design, a good scanner, and painting in Photoshop.

In this work order, Editora Saraiva - Brazil - For didactic books, I decided to make the in job 3D illustrations.

Share this adventure with you all. I hope you all enjoy. :)

I'm open and free to every question, critique, and help you to realize all your illustrations.

    Here began my problem! I had to have at least nine people, plants and a statue on the scene.

    I ran out of time. I only had 3 days to relizar it. And do not Daz Studio not make the Render. With nine people, plants and statue.

    Asked Daz3D help.

    They responded very quickly, saying that my PC was very weak memory.

    I redid everything in Daz Studio 3, and rendering was done in 6000 pixels.

    The domus looks really great! How long did it take to make the model to be ready to use?

    If you observe the work, there are huge mistakes at all. But as I said, it was the least I could do. :S

    Medieval System - The Feud - took work. First I discovered that my computer does not support Render, high resolution, and Daz Studio 4, requires a lot of memory, plenty of memory, Microsoft Windows you close, Daz Studio 4, and freezes.

    Since I have to produce a rendering of 300 DPI or Pixels for it. There are more than 6000 pixels quality TIF. The only way and make several Renders that seram Multiple layers, and mount it in Photoshop later. The result is very good, but you have to have patience. Or a lot of money to buy a super computer.

    This illustration was not approved. 4 days of lost work. But publisher asked another version.

    My dear friend! I just want to prove that Daz Studio, and Hexagon, allies, are powerful tools. And for those who want these tools, not only for fun, but if you want you can make a profession. Earn money to survive. I did nothing fantastic, all in a hurry, the publisher did not give me time, but I did with the time it would take to do in gouache on paper. There were 16 days long and hard work, I earned 8,500 Reais (Brazilian currency), which is a lot of money in Brazil. En something is about U.S. $ 4,250 dólares. I do not know what money is good?? For a worker American. in 16 days, and this, with fun.

    'm getting old. I have a responsibility to create new generations of illustrators. I see a lot of talent here with Daz Studio. These talents have to realize that they can make a living and a porfissão, beautiful, fantastic, if they wish, with Daz Studio. :)

    I do believe you have proven your point very well. $4250 US for 16 days of work would make anyone I know very happy. I will watch this thread and your other threads very close. To me 3D is a hobby to help fill my time. I'm 100% disabled from my health problems but my life is good due to planning ahead during my long carrier in Retail. I'm comfortable was far as money goes, luckily, but I love my 3D hobby. Your work is very inspiring and I will enjoy anything you share here. I'm looking forward to seeing your work and I'm very happy you wish to help others who may wish to do 3D for more than a hobby.

    Now I know that the only way to do Render high resolution is in pieces, layers. So was faster.
