Grimaces for Genesis 3 Male

Grimaces for Genesis 3 Male

Now they Grimaces!

Grimaces Expressions for Genesis 3 Male is my brand new release at DAZ3D.

This set of 30 original expressions is going to help you making funny faces and extreme expressions.

They are based on the many facial bones of Genesis 3. The expressions will work on other Genesis 3 Male based figures like Michael 7, Darius 7, Elijah 7, Dante 7.

They are One-Click and Morph Dial expressions. So you can adjust as you like, as well as you can mix them to create even more faces without altering your poses.

If you already have the Grimaces Expressions for Genesis 3 Female, some they may work well for males figures but not at all. This male set is optimized for the characters from Genesis 3 Male.

 

Free Alien morph for Victoria 4

Hello, People! To celebrate my new website, I did this free alien morph for Victoria 4 as a gift to all you.

I made this morph only with the Victoria 4.2 Morphs++ dials. There are no custom morphs.

All you need is the Victoria 4.2 Base and Victoria 4.2 Morphs++ available at DAZ3D.

There are no textures at all. Only basic shaders I set for the skin and the eyes.

For those who is not familiar with it, this character is for use in Poser and Daz Studio.

For Poser

It comes with Head and Body Injections and removes in .pz2 format.

You can find the MAT file¬†in the Poser’s Material Library for the Alien look.

Look at the ReadMe file for more info.

Download for Poser

 

For Daz Studio

alien-victoria4-daz-studio-iray

The Head and Body INJ and REM go into the Poser Formats directory (Runtime folder). The same directory you have installed the Victoria 4 files if you use the DIM (Daz Installer Manager).

The materials files go into your Daz Studio Library because they are .duf files. There is one material for 3Delight render and other for Iray render.

You can find them in the folder People > Victoria 4 > Materials > V4 Alien.

Again, look at the ReadMe file for more info.

This Alien is a basic morph for V4, I did not make any custom morphs, so you can make your own custom morphs and create your own textures as you like.

You can make a lot of other variations with just the dials. So have fun!

This is my Sci-Fi Christmas gift for you. Any doubts or suggestions, comment!

And don’t forget to subscribe for new stuff!

Merry Christmas!!!

PS: I’d like to see your creations with this base alien (new morphs, textures, artworks, etc). So send me the links. ūüėČ

Alien Lip Sync Animation Test

This is a lip sync animation test I’m working on as the animator for an independent Sci-Fi Comedy film called “Acordem Ovelhas” (Wake Up Sheep).

I animated it in Poser and then rendered in Carrara. I used the character¬†M4 Dragalien by RawArt¬†which I purchased at Daz3D. It’s another awesome character by RawArt!

Robson Bailarino, a Brazilian comedian, recorded¬†the voice for me and he also imitates a lot of famous voices. ūüôā

Ricardo Chacur, a friend of mine,  is the director of the film.

 

 

Ultraman

Looking at my old files, I found these pictures of the Ultraman I did a few years ago.
This hero was part of my childhood and I remember I ran out from school everyday to home to watch a new episode.

Ultraman

This is a 3D model for Poser made by Candy . For those who are a fan of the series, he also did several monsters.

I created the Ultraman X based on the Ultrawoman by Candy at the time I tried to do comics but it didn’t pass the second page. rs

I think he should not have screamed. 8 (

Finally, this animation is based on the original opening. It was brodcasted on the MTV Brazil in 2004.

Making Ratita

What I’m gonna show here is not a tutorial. Just a little step by step of how I did the site’s banner. Ratita is based on Victoria 4 from Daz3D model.
Normally I use Daz Studio to create the character and then open it in Carrara to compose the scene to render. But this was straight in Carrara. I like this software because it renders faster than others such as Poser and Daz Studio and in few minutes I have a great picture.
First of all, load Victoria 4 that comes with her basic texture.

Then I googled for textures and clothes that matched the visual that I had already drawn Ratita in 2d. There’re several sites like ShareCG, Renderosity, MOST Digital Creations, Content Paradise, Art Raiders, Evil Innocence where you can download clothes, skins texture (skin), hair, jewelry, poses, and even full characters for free use. In¬†Daz3D site, there’re some free too.

Victoria 4 customized to Ratita

In Texture tab in Carrara, I customized textures according to her and I added the logo¬†of my favorite band on the shirt. But you can’t always find everything, like mouse ears, so I had to model them in Hexagon, a Daz3D software really easy to model.

 

Modeling Ratita mouse ears in Hexagon

I exported V4 head to Hexagon only as a reference for modeling. And from a sphere, I could model the ears in a few minutes.
Back to Carrara, I imported the ears and I did some test renders with global illumination.

Finally, I added fur on the ears with Hair tool,¬†I posed her and adjusted the¬†camera’s frame to the size of the header and did the final render.

 

I love this character because she has a mix of cosplay, anime with a¬†Rock’n’Roll mood. All I like!
Later on, I intend to post some tutorials, tips, and tricks on how to start in 3D in a fun way, without so much frustration.
