I’m new to the Daz forum. Years ago I was heavily into graphic design using programs like Vue Infinite, Bryce and Poser but then I had kids and became a stay at home Mom and that sorta took over any free time I had. Now my twin girls are in school full-time and I’d like to get back into it. I’m just not entirely sure where to start. I found this forum while searching for Bryce again. Boy have things sure changed…lol.
I would like to create characters and then build environments around them. I plan to do a ton of reading and a lot of experimenting. I just wanted to say hi to all you folks.
Please forgive me if this is posted somewhere, but there is so much in here to navigate. I guess this would be one way to introduce myself! I’m trying to create an image for my online book cover, but can’t figure out how to get the software to work. So confusing. Is there a way to give someone specs (paid for, of course) to put together the artwork? If not, I’ll just trudge along and see if I can eventually figure this out. Thanks - Susan
Welcome Susan. Take a deep breath and relax. Not a one of us got this when we started. This is a nice friendly place and we will all help you learn as you go. We will help you get it all working if you can’t. We will gladly join a contest and do covers if that is what you decide to do. By We I’m talking about the other users here who all want to see you enjoy 3D Art as much as we do.
Welcome to the forums Scott. If you have any questions please feel free to go to the New User’s forum and ask away. You may also want to visit the Bryce forum to get your app specific questions answered.
Hello. My name is Jim, or Gerobluejim. I’m going to try and get back here and learn Bryce and DAZ 3D.
I have upgraded my video card slightly to 512 meg. I’ll be installing a GeForce 210 1 gig card this weekend. Maybe next year I’ll build a better computer with a bigger PSU in it so it can support a better video card. The 220 watt power supply in this one probably doesn’t do these new video cards justice.
As for music, I’ve been on youtube looking and listening to Night Flight, 1960s and 1940s music. Along with several Anime amvs: Ghost in the Shell, Black Lagoon, and Bleach. I think I prefer parts of Bleach. Been playing lots of Everquest.
And so far I like the new forums.
edit: I should probably put what I want to eventually learn to do. Castles and starships, villages, and associated items and people. Eventually. Of course, I have to learn how to use the software first.
I’m Steve from Ottawa, Canada. Been using D|S first as a tool to help a client who sent me some totally ugly 3D models that they wanted to have 3D printed, but once I accomplished my task for my client, my employer suggested that I explore my artistic side. As I told my boss, I am not an artist. A few months ago, someone at the Royal Canadian Mint saw my website and asked me to come in for a job competition. I didn’t get the job - they were looking for ZBrush artists - but this has spurred me on to develop whatever talent I may have.
I am into just about any type of subject matter - fantasy and science fiction, Steampunk, historical, contemporary, horror, Anime - just about anything can be appealing. I wish I could find other D|S users in Ottawa, as there is a local geek/artist group called Artengine, and I am sure we could form a subgroup of this fledgling movement.
You can check out my site at www . 3DArtwork . ca (without spaces of course).
Now I just gotta get me a faster ‘puter - the i7 875K is just a bit slow on the rendering!
Hey there, my name is Dan. I am an artist of very limited experience, foolishly posting on an expert board… I have just heard of DAZ, and have just downloaded the free Beta. Looking at content, though, I’m flummoxed by the abbreviated info presented in the “people” product names, and I wonder if anyone can help me with that (like: where to go for that info).
Is Genesis just a body product, or an entire plug-in, or something else entirely? Does it jive with Poser, as well as DAZ 3D? etc…
