Your Favourite piece of work so far this year

So what’s everyones favourite non risqué piece of work they have done this year so far.

This has to be one of mine.


Oh my god that’s a tall order considering my normal renders. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

It would probably be this one:

Which is a panel from a story I’m working on.

I just really liked how the character turned out. There’s an innocence I think I pretty effectively achieved. He’s in a real bad pickle right here and all he wants (and needs) is some help.

It was fun to do but drove me batshit crazy insane because it’s kitbashed so much with so many geografts, custom surfaces and custom materials that it brings my system to a crawl every time I load it.

But the results are worth it.

So yeah, this is about the only non X-rated render I’ve done this year. :slight_smile: :rofl:


It’s been a very risque year for me, but I use this one as the home screen on my phone and watch. And if she looks familiar, she’s also the same character in the risque series I posted. A modified Charlotte 8.


Since I’ve jumped over to Poser I’m still getting a handle on the lighting. I really liked this one I did of Andy, playing around with some of the shader nodes in the Material room!


That’s pretty superfly:wink:

So, I’m a novelist. I got into Daz with the intention of being able to create character studies and covers. I think my favorite picture this year was an initial draft of a character. But I decided to go a different direction with her. So. I’ll use this for some other character later on.


Excellent job, Love the POV & Lighting

I love this. Very nice. I’m assuming you write fantasy fiction? Are you published? Curious if you use KDP or Smashwords or something else.

one im especially proud of everything worked the way i wanted it to ( unusual for me lol ) direct and unforgiving with still an air of mystery about it hope you all like


Fantastic job, Superb work on the lighting

Wonderful image @renderscot! Welcome to the forums!

Incredible detail. Love the texture lighting and details! Fantastic!

I love this. This is stunning.

I write fantasy and science fiction, but with all the insane stuff happening in the world recently, I’ll probably stay off the sci-fi for a while. I’m self-published on Amazon, Kobo, B&N, and Apple.

Although… I kinda thought you knew that from FB… but obviously not.

Nope! Had no idea. I use Smashwords to publish all my books to the 'zon, Apple, etc. that’s why I was asking. Was just curious. :slight_smile: I’m always on the lookout for a better mousetrap!

I use Draft2Digital to post to the non-Zon outlets and for the initial pass at formatting the eBook versions. I even use it to format the ePub version that I upload to Zon, but Zon has some hardcoding to detect prologues and epilogues that strips off formatting and graphics (which is a pita.)

Good to see I’m not the only writer here. I am also an author. I almost solely use KDP. I have some of my early stuff on smashwords, but that’s always just free stuff. My usual fare is crappy vampire fiction - more modern vampire urban fantasy than horror and certainly not vampmances. I’ve lose count of the number of books and it’s too early in the day to try to count, but it’s between 12 and 15 novels. plus a bunch of traditionally published shorts I’ve been a hobbyist with rendering software since the days of Poser 2 and been writing since a decade before that, but I never tried to do my own cover art until 2012. I haven’t really put any effort or money into marketing lately so my sales haven’t been covering my expenses lately, since I get professional editing. I only use MS Word for formatting my books and only publish through amazon. I do also have a RPG manual published, where I used Daz to create all of the art. - I used a very simplified comicish style of coloring so it worked out pretty well.
