I may do some more work on this manticore to add more impressive claws. My campaign's manticores have no wings.
I love these so much. These figures you make are awesome.

Now those are some really uncanny-looking monsters. Great work, Damman. I think I agree about the manticore claws. They could use some work to put them on the same level as the teeth, but the rest is pretty much perfect.

So, I know there's a bunch of people who've worked with poser on this list, which I've never done, but I had a sudden weird idea, and I'm wondering how challenging it would be to do, and whether people have actually tried anything of the sort.

The basic idea is to put together hit location images (similar to what Millennium's End used) -- you have a graphic that shows a human body from various poses and angles, and you have a scatter table so you can figure out where you hit on the graphic (one problem with ME was a rather weird scatter table). However, rather than using a simple silhouette, use a graphic that actually shows internal organs, and you could then code damage values to organs, and so on. daz3d has the tools do do this -- this is very much like the kind of image you'd want -- probably based on the anatomy starter bundle or something similar -- but I'm wondering how ridiculous an amount of effort that is.

I don't remember now if I've ever posted to this thread nor not. I must have. But in case I haven't, here are a few pieces of my own:

Fala and Dent -- from an old D&D campaign
Savage Land -- Magneto, Beast and my wife's original character from a Marvel Supers campaign that I called "The Uncannonical X-Pals"
Doomed Slayers -- the cover I did for Jurgen's suppliment about dungeon-delving.
You All Meet In A Tavern -- interior illustration from "Doomed Slayers"
Paperwork -- another "Doomed Slayers" illustration
The Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughter -- from a series of character portraits I did for Brett to go with a gaslight fantasy game he will be running this spring.

And my wife will bug me if I do not mention that I am available for commissions.

You are an excellent artist mate, kudos.

I some how completely missed this post.

Short answer: "it depends" :D

What variety of poses/angles are you looking for? Setting up the basic figure ("Dude with glass skin, skeleton, and organs") would be done once, and then after that it's a different render for each pose. The rendering itself can be set up as a batch job to go overnight, so the real question is how much time is required for defining what poses and setting the poses up and the batch render up.

propos, I'd like to say that I'm very pleased with the results, and happy with Quarkstomper's ability to draw characters to match descriptions.

Pretty much what Bruno said. Also, what resolution do you want them at?
