Week 30 – w.c. pelon

“Hulk Smash!” — Widescreen Desktop Wallpaper (1920 x 1200)

Another desktop wallpaper created with Daz Studio 4 & Photoshop CS5.  I am definitely becoming much more comfortable with 3D rendering.  This week, I have posted screenshots to show some of the steps involved in the process from blank model to comic hero wallpaper.

"The Freak" - the base figure I used to build the Hulk - with no color or textures applied

After applying the "HD Comic Hero" morph injection, hairstyle and "Monster Pants", it's beginning to look a bit more like the big green meanie!

Body texture map & dynamic pose applied... almost there!

Postwork in Photoshop CS5: I zoomed/rotated the Hulk figure in Daz studio to create a portrait image that will be the base for the backdrop

  1. This is so Cool W.C! I am seriously going to try that, see if I can do my manga on that! I do wonder… do I NEED photoshop? That’s a bit out of my price range…Thanks!

      You don’t need to have Photoshop, but it certainly can help. Fortunately, there is an open source graphic editing program called “The Gimp” available for Linux, Windows and OS X. Gimp is completely free & uses a feature set very similar to the current versions of Adobe Photoshop.

    Yup. “Hulk Smash”. “Bill Rock.” *GUFFAW*
    This is amazing, and I know you must be having a blast. Keep up the great work!

    damn that’s awesome.. how much was the 3-d program?

    • w.c. pelon says:

      Daz Studio Standard is free (for the time being). The Advanced version runs around $200 and the Pro version around $400. You can also purchase individual figures, poses and textures (again, a few are free) directly from daz3d.com, but there are a number of repositories offering free content on the web.
