One of the wonderful things about the Daz store artists is that there’s something for just about every need. Everything from characters, to sets, to props. Even if the star of your show is a six foot talking rabbit in leather pants saving the world from a ticking nuclear detonation, you can bet there’s a store for that.
As a 3D Studio modeller, I know how much effort really goes into these things and rarely is it as simple as it appears. So, I’d like to join in thanks to the artists who share their creations with us. This goes double for all you wonderful Genesis designers out there! Never before have I had so much versatility and, to borrow a phrase, I’m loving it.
I had considered adding a shortlist of some of the artists whose work I use regularly, but felt it would deter from the original point of the thread. That said, thanks for sharing your marvellous creations.
I will add my thank you’s to all the artists creating products.
I know very well how much work and how many frustrations there are to making these products, So I fully appreciate all the different products I am able to buy to use in my art.
And I will also add my thank you as a product maker for this thread.
We really do love what we do, and try hard to make everything as interesting and creative as we possibly can…and even though my products can be all over the place in what I make, I am always glad there is a market for them.
This is a great thread! To the OP, I am a modeler myself that creates quite a bit of what i use in addition to what I buy and know first hand much of what it is involved in creation of the items in the MP, so sometimes I often wonder if the general public actually understands and appreciates what goes into their plug and play items that they purchase from DAZ or any other marketplace and what a great deal they are getting considering the time and effort involved in producing these rendering assets. So kudos for the post, as evidenced by the vendor responses, you did a good thing!
Sometimes i purchase a big scale scene and think to myself, man i am glad i didn’t have to UVmap that thing, LOL.
Wow… nonsequiter… but then again, that smile does kinda resemble Danny!
But I have to add something to this thread. I want to thank every single artist who has created content for GENESIS! Not just the PAs but the DAZ guys as well. But especially the PAs, because I have found, and I won’t mention names, that there are people who are so violently opposed to Genesis… well, it’s kinda ugly when you run into it. In any event, I love Genesis, I love what I can do with this figure. And those of you out there who support this figure by creating content for it… I’m very, very appreciative!

Ditto’ng this, and thanks to the PAs who’ve made anything I’ve ever rendered — my art relies on yours, and the care and quality workmanship show through.
Thanks for the kind words, everyone! It’s always encouraging to hear people say they like our products. Most of us fought hard to get into DAZ, and we’re proud of being here, and of what we produce for you.
Creating content is a bit of a lonely occupation. Hardly anyone, family or friends, actually understand what you do, unless they sit down and watch for a month or so. So it’s nice to be appreciated by the one group of people who do have some idea of what’s involved.
And not singling out any one PA for praise is good. That way, we can all pretend it’s meant for us personally. LOL.
Thanks for all the nice words everyone. It’s great to see we are appreciated for the hard work we put into our stuff. We hear this so very little. This type of thread make me feel like I’m not wasting my time.
