3D Art Made Butt-Simple

Yes, these days, even if you’re relatively computer-illiterate, if your good enough to use WordPress and Windows easily, you can make professional-looking 3D art. And it doesn’t necessarily even cost any money. You can find lots of free content on various sites like ShareCG.com. The program I use is even free.

The key is “presets”. Presets allow you to practically click a character into a scene, click a building into the scene, then click the character into place, place a whole light set (just like in a photography studio but using your mouse instead of lugging equipment around) with just one click, and clicking in any props you may want, such as a car or helicopter, then clicking the “make art” (“render” it is technically called) button which tells the computer to make the final image.

I sell certain kinds of presets. Mainly poses, the most recent of which you can find here. So without knowing anything except how to click on stuff, you can put your character into a pose like below with one double-click. I hope to get more people doing 3D art because really, if you suck at drawing but still want to “art” somehow, 3D could be your answer.

For more information, you can see this cheesy little demo I made while ago: http://takoyakida.webs.com/videos/RealityDemo.htm

So, if you want to make great 3D art but don’t want to get too into the technical side of things, just get a bunch of presets, whether from a free site like ShareCG.com, or from my publisher Daz 3D, or any another online marketplace.

Here’s to making your vision a reality.

My First Pic

Elf Girl

Suck at drawing? Try 3D and impress the crap out of your friends!

So I did my first real picture with Iray last night. Wtf is Iray you may ask? Iray was recently added to Daz Studio to create images using real-world physics (in other words, light behaves like it should in real life, which creates really cool effects.) Both Studio and Iray come free so if you are interested in doing what I do, it’s now easier than ever! I am quite impressed as a matter of fact with how easy this image was. Especially with all the presets Daz includes like “gold”, “wax” and so on to make surfaces look like they do in real life. Want to learn more? Check out http://www.daz3d.com/daz_studio
