iray Texture for Gothic Desk and Chair
I'm having problem uploading to ShareCG, but it's now sorted ! ! !

The original set that must be installed for the textures to work...…
Farscape iray material test
Just experimenting with custom iray maps in DAZ Studio... the bright green is emissive - I was trying to do alien rock/crystal but I would really need to refine it a lot more, as the shapes of the mesh are obscuring too much for my liking.
Zelata Test Canvas
This is the painted version of a DAZ render - I'm still very much in the "learning phase" using Painter - it's very easy to feel overwhelmed because the extensive range of painting tools are jaw-dropping and comprehensive.

The original render -
Naturally, I'm trying things out and I am in no way suggesting this is somehow better than the original render, but you gotta keep trying if you want to improve, hehe.
Zelata Test
I've had an interesting year, so haven't actually done much 3D rendering, and when I do, I usually use 3delight because I paint over it in Photoshop, so photoreal renders are not essential for that.

So here's a test render of Zelata 8 using iRay and Landay's dForce bob hair - it was for me to practice using Painter (take render into Painter and do a paint-over), but I really really love the DAZ render too, so posted it too.

The Painter version is here -


JV-Andrew's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United Kingdom
Born and raised in Scotland. Moved to London in 1995 when I was still a session musician, and have remained there since.

I used to do a bit of art in my school days, was pretty good with pastels. Started dabbling with digital art around 2006, and have (hopefully) been improving since then.

Looking to revive my musical side while keeping up with the digital art side.
V-Ray is one of those names that conjures up the word "expensive" in my head, and indeed, the quality we have on tap for free via DAZ Studio is something we often take for granted.  But even so, to get the photorealism as seen in many television commercials, then that standard is set by V-Ray.

But if you work in architecture and/or virtual reality, then the idea of having a manageable photoreal solution for real-time rendering is approaching in the form of V-Ray for Unreal.  When you import your scene from Autodesk to Unreal, V-Ray for Unreal automatically converts your materials and lights into real-time equivalents for UE workflows.  It's a conversion tool, turning your 3ds/Maya V-Ray scene into an Unreal Engine scene while retaining the photoreal quality.  

V-Ray for Unreal will open up the Unreal engine for presentations such as virtual tours by architects, and could take VR gaming into a whole new era of photorealism.…
