Stella The Sexy Teacher

This is another image of Stella, a character I sculpted from G8F with Imogen’s skin textures.

Stella is a school teacher for a comic project I was commissioned to create a couple characters for. The comic probably won’t launch for a few months still, but I got permission to show Stella off a little bit.

Let me know what you think!

Total Rendering Time: Around 20 minutes. 95% of image converged.

Software used for scene compilation: Daz Studio 4.9.
Rendered with NVIDIA Iray.
Sculpting done with ZBrush 4R7

Daz Studio: Mastering the Fundamentals of Iray Lighting and Rendering Webinar Released!

Mastering the Fundamentals of Iray Lighting and Rendering

My first webinar, Daz Studio: Mastering the Fundamentals of Iray Lighting and Rendering was just released recently!

I’m extra excited about it’s release because it’s my first ever webinar! Plus, I snuck in a few treasures I discovered recently like render canvases and how to improve viewport performance with the NVIDIA Iray drawstyle by setting it up so it doesn’t have to reload the textures every time you make an adjustment!

So, if you weren’t able to join the live session you can now purchase the recorded version!

For more information and to see what all I cover check out the product description in my store.

Thanks for checking it out!

It seems like it’s been a minute since my last leisurely render. I’m looking forward to doing more soon.

I’m super excited, this image features my latest commissioned custom sculpted character “Stella” who is on the right. She is supposed to be Latina, does she look like it? I’m not at liberty to reveal all the details yet, but Stella is one of two characters I was commissioned to sculpt for an upcoming comic project. I won’t be creating custom skin textures for them, but Imogen’s skin textures seem to be a good fit for her. Read More »

Now that my summer busyness is coming to an end I’m looking forward to having more time to render and work on my website. This winter I want to spend more time creating renders, tutorials, YouTube videos, and products.

With that being said, I put together this short 5 question survey to get a better idea of how I can best serve you.

I would really appreciate it if you would take a minute or two and answer the following questions. Read More »

Unlock the power… One render, unlimited lighting possibilities – My Webinar, this Sunday

September 21, 2017 Leave a comment

I’ve been polishing my webinar over the last couple of weeks and I have to say I’m super excited. I’m kind of thinking that titling it as “Mastering the Fundamentals” might have been a bit of an under statement… I have a tendency to get “carried away” and this webinar is definitely not the exception.

In my mind the objective of this course has always been to empower Daz Studio users to “know what tools are available, have a basic understanding of how to use them, and have the confidence to play with some features you didn’t know existed or were convoluted.” Read More »
