The program uses 3D models that you manipulate, like a digital version of an artist's wooden mannequin. You can pose the figure any way you want, attach clothing and hair (which are also 3D models), adjust your camera position, and add lighting to the scene. Take a look at the DAZ3D website, where they have lots of videos that show the process.
Yes, the rigging is already built into the models. All you need to do is pose them, either manually or using pre-built pose sets. I generally start with the latter and modify them as needed to get the precise positioning I want.
Here's a link to a page with a couple of videos, from where you can also download the software, which is free in its base form (they make their money off of selling the models): [link]
Great image. If only you had the time to put together a group of characters that could be in some sort of major fantasy epic. Better yet, have several images of the characters added to that sort of novel. That would be spectacular!!!
Actually very attractive plate The work of more than wonderful, and standing on the tree, she sees the far top as well as a stunning bass This is Kevin iconic as usual, Greetings to you from all my heart and send you big hugs
Wow. That's one awesome elf lookout. Great skin and the muscle structure on her left thigh is amazing. Drool.
One point that I'm not so sure about is the tree. The surface shading doesn't really have any texture (compare the bottom part, which is better, to the top), which puts it in contrast with the woman, so it kind of stands out. Also, not sure what's going on with her right lower leg. It's kind of inside the cut-off branch, but it looks like a toe is peaking out from behind it. This is minor stuff, the overall effect of this piece is awesomesauce.
