Ok I post an image to the internet exposing it to be downloaded without a watermark so I can't expect people not to download the image and I am fine with that but please don't make money on the back of my hard work, which granted is highly unlikely but still don't abuse my trust or I WILL HAVE TO SEND THE BOYS AROUND for compensation. Seriously though don’t; just enjoy them for what they are.

Laticis Imagery FREE Object - Gargoyle Statue by Laticis by Laticis I used the Diffuse, Spec and Normal maps that came wit the model and added a metallic twist using the Iray shader. The Buddha I gave a Sliver shader and for the Treasure of Egypt prop I gave a Gold shader changing the diffuse colour to White and kept the diffuse maps in place. The Table is an ArtColab prop and I put the diffuse map in to the Gloss colour channel setting roughness to 0.80. I then used the Top Coat function at 100% Weight to simulate a clear varnish.

Iray again. Given that the HDRI's don't react to the camera DOF I choose a better HDRI as a light source and background and left DOF OFF.

Iray again. No material adjustments, lit with a high res HDRI, 5000 samples HDRI Environment Lighting Resolution set to 2048. I figured this was the same as Blender Cycles Multiple Importance setting. Took 50 mins to render as that size. I deformed the back tyre to show a little weight.

Another DS/Iray test Not happy with the light glasses, the textures are bad with highlights and even sky reflections on the main head light. Had to take the textures into Photoshop and try and remove them. But what do you expect from a Weekly DAZ3D freebie. Rendered at 5000 samples and took 10 hours on i7 3.4 ghz quad CPU only. Not bad could never get that from Lux.

 I am happy to report the Bald Wizards Co-operative's (division of the Bald Wizards Club) first tutorial, well Quick tip really, "How to make a Mapless Shader" is on page 32 of Issue 5. You can get the latest issue here

There will be more to come, possibly in this ezine, the Daz 3D Store and some freebies we have nearly completed. Initially these will be aimed at newcomers to Daz Studio and when they are complete we will continue with Intermediate level tutorials. Well got to learn to walk first.

 Watch this page for future developments and release dates.

 Thank you for your support

 On a personal note I would like to apologise for my absence in commenting on many of the galleries I watch. I just don't have enough hours in the day after writing tutorials, taking screenshots and adjusting them in Photoshop, learning more about DS and Vue and life in general.

back at you Hoz. Have you just started with Poser and Daz Studio?
Hoz3DArt Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I've been using Daz Studio and Poser for about 9 years on and off. I took a long break from 3D the other year but I'm getting back into it with Poser 10 and the latest DAZ Studio. I'm feeling inspired to make images again which is good! :)
