I was thinking of the saying “Sleep tight do not let the bed bugs bite.”  Guess they are like little vampires.  I was thinking of some of my characters having problems with bed bugs.  How do I show this in my renders?  How can I show bed bug bites on Genesis or M4 or V4 or K4 or ect?  Is there anything I need to know about them to add them to my stories or comics?

Also is there any low rez figures of roaches, adult or young?

Hmmm are there any 3d models of bed bugs?
I need some sleep. I do not know how to get rid of bed bugs though.

Technically bed bugs don’t bite. They suck blood much like mosquitos do. You would have to zoom in extremely close really see them in a render as adults are no more than 5mm x 1.5mm in size. It would be easier to just add a few brown dots in post work. Just like mosquitos they cause itching and redness where they suck so you could add a reddish skin spots on characters.

Here is a link for you to explain all about bed bugs. I do not know of any models for bed bugs or cockroaches unfortunately.

Must be the ‘Pro’ bundle although the gens would probably be too tiny to notice anyway. LOL

And that’s what the rest of the 3d world expects to pay for models.  I think that more people need to look at places like turbosquid to understand just how much of a bargain DAZ content really is.  No one else *expects* rigged models, and textures… well, *maybe* you’ll get a texture.

At least we can shop at Turbosquid,

although it seems you have to have bank like

10,000 shares in Apple,

own a few hundred oil rigs,

own several casinos and

hit Power Ball a couple of times.

Other than that I bet the shopping experience is phenomenal.

That is too much for me.  It does not look like it comes with textures either.

You can’t really draw a comparison. DAZ caters to a limited product market and content is optimised only for Poser/DS. Here we get hundreds of different versions of the same thing be it human shapes, hair, clothing or backdrops. It’s basic economics based on the principle of supply and demand. Even at Turbo Squid you’ll find that common models usually sells for much less than say medical models or in this case a bed bug. I mean, how many studios are ever going to have a project involving bed bugs? And that’s also the other major difference. Turbo Squid’s market is aimed at professionals and studios. DAZ market is aimed at hobbyists.

If you don’t have to be exact, there’s the Buggy Ride from Ant Farm.  At $14.95, it’s a bargain compared to others.  http://www.daz3d.com/shop/buggy-ride
