Lol...no secrets here. I don't mind sharing my workflow.
I use Poser Pro 2012. It's the first version of Poser that uses subsurface scattering to get better looking skin. And absolutely love using SSS...no more plastic-looking characters, unless they're supposed to be.
I'll be looking forward to seeing your girl.
Thanks for the info..so intresting i didnt know you could render in poser ;)
i am working on the girl as we speak,but its a lot harder then i thought to get the curves right..i normaly make monsters :)
Ah, no worries. What you do produce, you do well with.
And you've done better than me...I've never modeled anything (don't really have the desire to, though). My female characters are built off of a pre-made base model.
So...at least you gave it a shot. Maybe after more studying, you'll get it. And if not, you're already great at monsters.
That is very kind of you! But even if you dont moddel ,the lighting and posses and skin color and overall comp are awesome ,something i hope to achieve to ;) ill just be following you arround and hope it rubs off :)
Aww, thanks. It's always nice to hear from a modeler that my artwork has worth. Sometimes I'm hesitant of telling modelers my artwork is created from pre-mades because there are so many who think that if it's not all modeled from scratch, it's not art. I have a broader more open-minded view that if the artist created any part of it and it brings feeling to the viewer (the artist included), then it's art.
So anyway...follow away! If you have any questions on my techniques or anything, I'll be happy to answer the best I can.
I use to be a purist when it came to 3D ,i wanted everything to come from my hands and mind..but i realized that its not the means ,but the outcome that counts,its much better to focus on the outcome. most modelers i know lose them self's in details and getting every right ,the lose the big picture and spend months creating something ugly and out of balance..yep me 2 ;)
Most 3d models are not artists just slightly autistic ;)
So never let them tell you what you make is not art,they wouldnt know art if it would rape them in the ass..(little harsh statement there )
