I'm currently most interested in how to have 3D software produce non-photoreal renders (NPR). Renders that are 'believable' as 2D hand-made art, even to experienced comics-readers and fellow digital artists. Made using user-friendly and affordable software such as Poser - which gives an artist easy access to the vast amounts of low-cost royalty-free Poser/DAZ 3D content.
Over the years I haven't treated DeviantArt as any kind of comprehensive repository of my work, and nor have I regularly 'worked DA' (expect for my Favourites). Thus you don't see all my visual work here at DeviantArt, just the sort of thing that may interest the regular type of DA member.
Core frequently-used software on Windows:--
Poser 11.x Pro.
DAZ Studio 4.x (with Scene Optimizer for iRay).
PzDB (for Poser/DAZ content management).
3DXChange (3D file converter).
Meshlab 2016 (3D file wrangler).
Vue xStream 2016 R4.
PTGui 8 (panorama stitcher).
Krita 4 (2D digital paint).
Dynamic Auto-Painter 6.
Photoshop, mostly CS6 - plus a half dozen plugins.
