Gosh, is it that time of the month again? Here’s my personal pick of the most interesting new DAZ Studio and Poser 3d content that has appeared in May 2015.
The top 3d stage-set this month is undoubtedly Stonemason’s The Streets Of Old London 3d environment, made with Stonemason’s usual professional attention to detail. Suitable for everything from Sherlock Holmes through steampunk to Edwardian-era intrigue and mystery. (By the way, if Stonemason is reading this, 3D Art Direct magazine would like to interview you, please).
Need male attire for Streets of Old London? New is the Grantham Hall Suit and Bon Vivant textures addon.
Need some crazy swivel-eyed Cthulhu cultists running around the streets of Stonemason’s Old London? There are new Monks Robes for Genesis 2 Males.
From the early Edwardian era as Old London is the very detailed Desert Pathfinders for Genesis 2 Males and Desert Pathfinder Textures set.
Secluded Shoreline looks like a potentially useful stage set / environment. Good to see the old Poser Dog getting an outing in the promo pictures, too!
Western Town also looks like a nicely detailed setting. A complete town, but all the samples images appear to have been rendered using Reality 4 rather than DAZ.
Fitting in well with the Wild West theme is the new Old Gold Mine…
Another lovely fantasy/sci-fi building at Renderosity, Swamp house…
Below is a 100% geometry landscape “in OBJ”, a classic fantasy lane in the Morrowind etc style, called Northern Soul. Complete with a demo scene for Poser with lighting and render settings already set up. Octane render material files are included. Would probably also look good in Vue / Keyshot / Reality etc…
Liquid Lab looks very detailed and useful for a wide variety of “oh, no, the experiment went wrong and released the Deadly Triffids!” scenarios…
Definitely not an olde scurvy dogg, there’s a complete Pirate Booty outfit for STAR!.
Bubbles, a charming new semi-toon character from CHK2033. Poser 10+ only.
Valandar’s Jabberwock II looks like a nice new body, but the face seems lacking compared to Valandar’s previous version of it — which stuck more to Tenniel’s famous original vision. I do hope the change isn’t due to some spurious copyright claim by the Dodgson or Tenniel heirs.
Droid Kit is a near-future humanoid sci-fi droid with lots of swop-out power tools.
I note that Geeksatplay are now on the Concucopia (Vue) store. Their new Light Up Screen tutorial shows how to create glowing holo-screen effects in Vue.
Also for Vue, the interesting Lonely Rocks setting.
Finally, the Bat Bike is free on Renderosity, for Poser and DAZ Studio. For non-commercial use only, as it’s Batman fanart.
That’s it! More next month.
