Welcome dear visitor,

My name is Thierry Cravatte, From Liège in Belgium.

I would describe myself as an enthusiastic 3D hobbyist.

My usual skills are Daz Studio, Octane Render and Gimp. I also use occasionally Vue and Blender.

My main interests in CG are sci-fi and fantasy.

Thank you for visiting my page, and please, feel free to take a look at my gallery

I wish you the best.
I had a fantastic surprise, today ! My friend Odile :iconodilicious: offered me a three month premium membership for my birthday !! :squee:
Odilicious is not only a great artist (check her gallery , It's a must see !!) but also a lovely person, very cultured !
I wish to thank her, not only for this gift but also for her art, for her inspired images. You have a place in my heart, Odile !
  • Mood: Optimism

Hopefully this isn't going to bug you or anything, but how good is DAZ Studio and how usefully is it?

Hi Keaton ! You're not bugging me at all !

I'm probably not the best person to give advice on daz Studio because I only use it for setting up my scenes , 'posing' my characters,  assembling and positioning the differents elements. This is certainly a very important part of the creation process, but ater that, I 'send' my scene in another program for setting the lights, adjusting the camera angles, creating materials, ... and finally rendering the final image.

I'd say that for the pros : Daz Studio is easy to learn (for the basic usage), It integrates la HUGE library of models (characters, architecture, vehicles, ...) and most of all, it is FREE.
On the other hand, the material system seems quite complicated and the renders are not easily realistics.

I hope this helps, but I really thing you should ask other advices ;)

Thanks mate, but I would be lying if I didn't say this scared me when it came out of the blue.  But that helps a lot, and I may like it depending on how easy it is to learn. But it looks like a very good tool for making art and everything, and I like having a lot of things at my fingertips.

Like with every software, you have to 'invest' a little bit of your time in learning the tool. But Daz Studio is rather easy to start with, even for beginners. You should watch some tutorials on youtube, just to get the basis. And after, the fun begins ... Try,try and try. You'll learn a lot by the trial and error method (well in my case it was the error and error method ;)). Don't hesitate to experiment new techniques, read documentations, ask people. But BEWARE, 3D is a highly addictive and time consuming hobby ;)
