The top 3d stage-set this month is undoubtedly Stonemason’s The Streets Of Old London 3d environment, made with Stonemason’s usual professional attention to detail. Suitable for everything from Sherlock Holmes through steampunk to Edwardian-era intrigue and mystery. (By the way, if Stonemason is reading this, 3D Art Direct magazine would like to interview you, please).
Need some crazy swivel-eyed Cthulhu cultists running around the streets of Stonemason’s Old London? There are new Monks Robes for Genesis 2 Males.
Secluded Shoreline looks like a potentially useful stage set / environment. Good to see the old Poser Dog getting an outing in the promo pictures, too!
Western Town also looks like a nicely detailed setting. A complete town, but all the samples images appear to have been rendered using Reality 4 rather than DAZ.
Fitting in well with the Wild West theme is the new Old Gold Mine…
Another lovely fantasy/sci-fi building at Renderosity, Swamp house…
Below is a 100% geometry landscape “in OBJ”, a classic fantasy lane in the Morrowind etc style, called Northern Soul. Complete with a demo scene for Poser with lighting and render settings already set up. Octane render material files are included. Would probably also look good in Vue / Keyshot / Reality etc…
Liquid Lab looks very detailed and useful for a wide variety of “oh, no, the experiment went wrong and released the Deadly Triffids!” scenarios…
Definitely not an olde scurvy dogg, there’s a complete Pirate Booty outfit for STAR!.
Bubbles, a charming new semi-toon character from CHK2033. Poser 10+ only.
Valandar’s Jabberwock II looks like a nice new body, but the face seems lacking compared to Valandar’s previous version of it — which stuck more to Tenniel’s famous original vision. I do hope the change isn’t due to some spurious copyright claim by the Dodgson or Tenniel heirs.
Droid Kit is a near-future humanoid sci-fi droid with lots of swop-out power tools.
Also for Vue, the interesting Lonely Rocks setting.
Finally, the Bat Bike is free on Renderosity, for Poser and DAZ Studio. For non-commercial use only, as it’s Batman fanart.
That’s it! More next month.
Carrara 8 is DAZ Studio's official 'big sister' software.
