It’s time for another survey and picks of the new goodies, released this month for use with DAZ Studio and Poser.
Ancient Atmospheric Diving Suit by Cybertenko.
AS Nocturne luxury airship.
Steam Powered Dirigible for DAZ Studio.
Xigbar for Genesis 8 Male, a freebie with eyepatch and hair. Seems to suit the steampunk airship-captain style. Perhaps a freebie because he resembles a game character? Check that if you want to use him in a commercial comic.
Project Eden for DAZ Studio. Shown here without textures so you can see what’s going on…
Lunar Hotel for DAZ Studio.
A free British Commando for M3. Since the British Army have ‘prior art’ on this outfit, I doubt even commercial use would be infringing, even if it is from a game — as the uploader’s other Wolfenstein uploads seem to suggest it may be. The saved .ZIP needs to be re-named to the .RAR type.
Oxford Classroom for DAZ Studio. A pre-1945 English classroom in the University of Oxford style.
A free ramshackle 17th-19th century Raft with barrels.
Goddess Braids For Genesis 3 And 8 Female, in the ancient Mediterranean style.
Ancient building thatched. Northern Iron Age, and low-poly so one could probably build a village of them in the same scene. The modern-looking square brick chimney would need to be removed for authenticity.
Gruesome Ghoul for Genesis 8 Male. With a nice ‘Frank Frazetta paperback cover’ look, but also a nod to the H.P. Lovecraft of “Pickman’s Model” and the Dreamlands. The body looks to have had as much design attention as the head.
Medieval River Quarry, a freebie, with a hefty 123Mb download due to “detailed UV-Mapping up to 4096×4096 to allow quality textures”. Would probably look good looming up in a Vue atmosphere.
Also, the flagship Poser figure La Femme is now at version 1.1 with a variety of updates and tweaks.
Clothing and poses:
Blisstopia dForce Cloak and Bodysuit for G3F/G8F. Looks useful for a wide range of scenes and genres.
A free Genesis 8 Male Hawking Pose for the ancient sport of hawking. Not something you see every day.
Toon Hero for Genesis 8 Male with matching ‘airbrushed toony’ body texture.
Animations for Nursoda’s Kelm and Bong. Given that poses for one Nursoda character also often fit another, I’m guessing these may also more-or-less work on his other characters too, such as Dr. Pitterbill?
Flying car/boat, albeit low-poly. Possibly too good to be true, at just $5 on CG Trader. Do some research before you use it in a commercial storybook.
More believable Genesis 8 Young Child Poses from BBarbs, such as this…
A free Duck Buoy for V4, K4, A4.
Hedgehog Rigged. I’m pretty sure DAZ Studio already has something very like this. But it may be of interest to some.
European Otter in HD. A ridiculous price of $249, but I’m including this here in the hope someone might be inspired to make a DAZ otter to showcase the new dForce strand hair, perhaps even give it wet/dry looks (it swims underwater).
Songbird ReMix Ostriches, all five species. “Completely updated in June 2019 to include a new file structure with native versions for both Daz Studio and Poser.”
A prehistoric underwater Drepanasis.
3D Tropical Holiday beach for Vue 7 or higher.
Mountain Set by ShaaraMuse3D. HD micro-landscapes resembling what you’d see on the rocky floor at an old iron foundry, or in the scree of a high volcanic mountain landscape.
RSSY Hair Converter from Victoria 4 to Genesis 8 Female. Appears to be fairly easy and semi-automatic.
How to Make Amazing PBR Materials for DAZ, using Substance Alchemist.
That’s all my picks for this month. More in July!
Carrara 8 is DAZ Studio's official 'big sister' software.
Carrara loads all DAZ and Poser characters and scenes,
and supports LuxRender for top-quality realistic rendering.
