In today’s tutorial We will walk you from beginning to end of the entire process of setting up and rendering a 3D . we will show how to flawlessly blend 3D renders with stock images using digital painting techniques to create a stunning sci-fi illustration. So don’t be anxious if your drawing skills are not you’re strongest quality – in fact, Poser was originally developed as a practical dummy to assist artists and comic book creators, so let’s get on track!

Step 1
Launch Poser, select the default figure in the main viewport and hit delete. Go to Library > Figures > Daz People > Michael 4, highlight the thumbnail and click the Create New Figure tick at the foot of the palette to load the model. At this stage were not concerned with textures, so select Smooth Shaded under Document Display Style.

Step 2
Select the Coalition Rapier library (found under Figures > Mestophales > Coalition > Rapier). Select the top Rapier icon and click the Create New Figure double-tick icon. Ensure the suit is selected, then choose Figure > Conform To and select Michael 4 in the following window to make the suit follow the figures movements.

Step 3
With the suit still selected, choose Pose > Mestophales > Coalition > Rapier and highlight the Mat-Armor-1 Olive thumbnail, then click the Apply Library Preset tick. Now to add the weapon. I found this pulse rifle in old library, but you can easily use something similar from DAZ3D such as these sci-fi rifles.
Load the weapon, mine is not a Smart Prop, so I had to use the Transform Parameter dials to rotate and position it just below the figures right arm.

Step 4
Select Four Ports from the bottom-left pull-down menu and use the Camera Controls to access the best position/angle to view the right hand and weapon. Now fine-tune the Transform Parameter dials to accurately position the weapon.

Select Michael’s right hand and apply the Grab preset pose (Library > Hands > P6 Male). Now select each individual finger/thumb mesh in turn and adjust them to grasp the trigger and handle.

"How can I gain a comprehensive road map for rigging props and clothes for DAZ Studio, so I can be a successful published artist?"

The hardest aspect of content creation is how to rig a prop or clothing item and is elusive to many artists (we've been asked about this many times).

If you are an existing content creator, you may have hit a growth ceiling because of rigging and you aren't sure how to break through in order to produce that next level quality content.

You may feel stuck and have that need to shake things up.

Perhaps you could benefit from a trusted road map for rigging DAZ Studio content? Imagine being exposed to shortcuts that would speed up your production and save you time?

We have just introduced the DAZ Studio Rigging Library and Forum where you can learn in depth how to rig 3D models for DAZ Studio content production.
