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.

For Daz Studio

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. 😉

Burning Babes Gang – WIP

Making the cover art

Carrara is really handy. It can support a bunch of characters and props in a scene without slow down your computer. These scenes below have more than 1 million polygons.

I like these camera angles, so now I have to tweak some lights to render. Normally I render the characters and background separated to do a postwork in Photoshop.

Burning Babes Gang cover

It’s been a long time since my last post here, because of my new comic project, Burning Babes Gang. I’m really enjoying doing this webcomic in 3D.
This is the webcomic cover rendered in Carrara. Carrara is a great 3D software which makes the production of comics fast and easy. Without Carrara it would take more time to do it.

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.
