If so, I really really want to know where you found the werewolf :o
Actually, I'm using DAZ|Studio 1.5.1.0. It's free. And it's compatable with about 90% of stuff for Poser. It doesn't do dynamic cloth yet (they say that'll be in Daz 2.0) or true shader-based surfaces. I have both Bryce and Hexagon, but I'm scared of them and haven't worked up the courage to try messing with them too much.

As for the werewolf, he's the Lycanthrope from Sixus1. He's $2.49, but requires the Behemoth, which is linked to from the lycantrhope page, and he's apparantly free now. Needless to say, when I discovered that (Sunday night), I snatched him up.

I'm just not as good with them as MonkeyFist is. He's one of those people that if you give them four Lego bricks, he'll made a sphere and I'm one of those people who has a hard time getting them to make a stick.

He did, however, just finish the Akashic Destroyer. (belly, side, back) And this AT-PT.

I'm a latecomer, and one without drawing talent to boot, but dang, there's some nice-looking art in this thread! I'm very impressed with you folks. Mark Skarr, you've made me wish I weren't such a Luddite so I could fiddle around with some 3d art software.

JoelS., if you're still paying attention to this thread, you ought to post your picture of Jasinder Singh Barra. All due props to the excellent fantasy characters, but the Jasinder pic really amazed me.

Oh, Kirby, I have absolutley no drawing talent . . . here's a recent example. I like DAZ because it's an order of magnitude or two easier to use than Poser (I tried Poser 5 and Poser 6) and it's free. All you have to do is register and then you can download it, and some "basic" content. There is a lot of free stuff out there (I personally recommend Vanishing Point for some good free stuff).

I don't think it's a matter of skill. I feel the nature of DAZ lends itself better to machines than to people. But this is a purely personal and subjective opinion.

I just posted Obsidian's stats over in the 400-point character's thread. But, here's her picture in this thread as well.

Does it count as bumping when you post new pictures?

Here's Virtual.

I liked the sword from Virtual and I wanted to use it again. So I made this picture.

I almost called the picture: "So, you and your friends are drinking in this tavern and in walks this woman . . .."

MonkeyFist made both this version of the RV for my Road Trip thread as well as the actual version.

Mark, your artwork is awesome, but I must ask: why are all the women so skinny?
