In this video, I show you how I create a fantasy scene depicting an elf standing with a deer in a dense forest. Starting with Poser, I pose the V4 model and use the cloth room to do a couple of cloth simulations for her dress, then, also in poser, I add the deer. I’ll show you how to transfer poser characters to Vue. Then, in Vue, I construct a forest scene around the Poser Models. Finally, towards the end, I show you how to use GIMP to do a bit of post production work.
In this video, I show you how to rig a complex model using a Blender 3D armature to create and underlying skeleton of bones that you can use to pose 3D character models. I also show you how to use Blender’s weight paint mode to tweak the rigging so that all the parts of the model correctly move with the rig.
In this video, I give a digital art lesson that takes you from start to finish on how I created my artwork “The Leaving” using a variety of digital 3D rendering and painting techniques. Not only do I show you how I made it, but also, I touch on how to sell and market prints of it.
In this lesson/tutorial I’ll cover some of the following topics:
Creating a seascape in Vue
Posing a figure in Poser
Using the cloth room in Poser
Transferring Poser figures to Vue
Using Photomatix to enhance the colors of your digital art
