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.



Troubled Take 2 by ItiseyeMeeSzark
Troubled Take 2
I always wanted to redo <da:thumb id="376950515"> but the scene file was lost a while ago due to my only slave drive going pop. So I had to rebuild the whole scene. After looking at all my Skin texture sets I settled on Amy… as to me it had the most detail.

This is half of an exercise in testing Uber Surface 2 and AOA SSS Shader base. The AOA one is rendering. Both take about 20 hours to render given I have thrown everything at it. AOA Advanced Spots (x3) set to Squared Light Fall Off, AOA Advanced Ambient Light and Uber Environment 2 GI (Global Illumination) Also Gamma Correction enabled set to 2.20. Yes some postwork was done but to be honest only minor things like the Stretched Freckles on the arm/shoulder, adding a background and a little sharpening with a High Pass filter set to 1 pixel and blended via the Overlay blend mode.

I added the tattoos to the texture maps in Photoshop. Uber Hair shader for the hair. The clothing is Dynamic Tee, Frozen and set to collide with a geometry shell (hidden). The eyes are maps for Actual Eyes for Genesis using Uber Surface 2 also. I found it the better option. The sclera maps comes from Dimension Theory's Reinterject for Genesis 2 Female(s) cut out and put on a different Genesis eye map from Actual Eyes so it wouldn't have a problem with different UV's. I also added the V4/M4 ageing displacement maps just to give a little extra detail in the face. If I had Zev0 aging maps I would have used those instead.

I will post the AOA one when it is done. Should finish rendering about this time tomorrow. Provisionally I am liking Uber Surface 2 better as IMHO it is easier to set up the SSS Scattering and Absorption colours than trying to figure out the split RGB values of AOA's SSS Shader Base. Also specular in AOA's shader seems more fiddly than US2. But one thing I have noticed AOA does backlighting so much better than US2 but I must admit I didn't adjust the Back Scatter Boost setting in US2, my bad. I might have a play with that over the weekend.

Vista by ItiseyeMeeSzark
After watching Vladimir Chopine's Distant Mountains tutorial Parts 1-3… I came up with this in Vue. Used The AntFarm's Vista Viewer

 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! :)
