|The Goddess Strykana Bathing|
I consider myself a muse driven storyteller, and the 3D art is the vehicle of my story. Most of my stories are simple scenes of "Slice of Life Moments", and many are erotically focused, but certainly not all. My favorite (Socially acceptable) kink is probably Feminine Nude in Public (NiP) scenes. Women boldly displaying themselves, unashamed. My tastes are kinda scattered, but are usually focused around SciFi and Superhero genres. I often change tracks or direction, bouncing back and forth between genres and story lines, following my muse where it leads me, it is not unusual for the characters to change my mind and take charge of their own stories, sometimes swerving completely away from my original plot. As a result, I sometimes beat a theme to death, while leaving dozens of other plots and stories dangling.
As an art fan, I joined DA in Aug of 2008 and as a Daz Studio hobbyist I posted my first images in Oct 2014. I have messed with Poser 10 with very little success. I am having fun learning Daz though and I love Iray though it often trips me up. Doing a bit of prop creation in Hexagon and I tried, without much success, to learn Bryce (Money wasted I think) then I finally gave up on it. GIMP and Comic Life are my go-to support programs for most postwork. I have created and produced a graphical story, "Ginger Allen, All American Girl" in several installments and it will continue when my muse leads me back. My older work here is displaying my baby steps in learning 3D art, leading up to producing this story. Since then I have added many other graphical stories and concept art.
I have made a few clothing items and props in Hexagon and I am looking forward to learning more. It can only get better from here right?

Comic Strip TextIn a recent private conversation with one of my commissioners, I pointed out how important it is to plan an image for comic book text such as word balloons, thought bubbles, and text boxes. I've been reading comic books since I was a kid so I picked up on a lot of their logic long ago. I don't pretend to be a flawless practitioner, but I like to think I have learned a few ways to make comic strip text work. Maybe you'll find this interesting or even useful...
The first thing to do, as much as possible, is to write the text out in advance. This helps you figure out not just how much space you might need around the main figures, but also how many images you'll likely need. If there's too much text stuffed into a panel it threatens to overwhelm the image. You're telling a good part of the story through images, so less is almost always more when it comes to comic strip dialogue and narration. Also, the image will show your characters in a certain position, (implied) motion, and emot
The 'Belleverse' - Notable Places
London - Situated in the South East of England, the capital city is home to various eclectic individuals, both good and evil, super-powered and not. It, of course, has some important magical significance yet, especially in more modern times, hoasts various intelligence, espionage, and mercenary agencies.
Wyrton - An old town in Northumberland, in the North of England, that has relatively recently become a city (a large period of growth kicked off in the late 50s that has been continuous until modern day), Wyrton is a hybrid of old brick townhouses, limestone churches, high-rises, and futuristic glass spires. A tide of crime and corruption has blossomed since the turn of the century, and only recently has one superheroine (Swift-Jill) taken it upon hers
[Tutorial] Transferring Character Morphs G1G2G3G8The first version of this workflow came from Kattey on the DAZ forum, for which I acknowledge credit.
Here is that (lengthy) thread: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/24093/
Here's another thread with a method that might be better on eye distortion, I haven't tried yet: https://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/comment/2539831/#Comment_2539831
Here's what I've been doing myself.
First of all, however: there are two ways to recreate a character. There is the easy way, which is not redistributable, and the hard way, which is. We'll discuss the easy way first. I'm sorry, but I can't do anything for those of you who absolutely can't learn from text. This is what I have time for right now.
PART 1: CREATE A SINGLE DIAL
Load Genesis 1. Dial in your character morph. There cannot be anything in the scene except the single figure while we do this. No hair, no clothes, no props. Or if they are there, you must hide them by c
