I have recently finished a commissioned painting, which I have posted here. I also desire to do figure drawing, and think DAZ Studio will have a role to play in this. Unfortunately, no prop library will ever contain all that I would want, yet no google image/stock reference library would ever have all the poses I would want. Andrew Loomis in his book "Figure Drawing for All it's Worth" stresses the importance of drawing from a model, or at least from a wooden manikin, as do countless other art instructors. I will attempt to milk the technological capabilities of DAZ Studio for all their worth in this regard. After all, Microsmith first launched Poser in 1995 not to be art in and of itself but as a digital reference guide for traditional figure artists; essentially virtual manikins. It was only later that 3D figure art came into it's own as art. Therefore I will resurrect an old project that at one time I had up on here but later deleted.
That's right; the triplet sisters of Annabelle; Arianne, and Adria. They never actually did go away completely. The blonde haired Annabelle has been up in my 3D render entitled Home Protection Plan for some time. Arianne is the long haired Brunette posing in Off to War 1914 saying goodbye to her British soldier sweetheart. Adria is the young adult woman in the her jeans and bathing suit top supervising the little kids in Summertime Water Fun II ." Annabelle and Arianne are currently up in Mall Madness with the Christmas shopping bags. They will serve as models for various projects involving 3D rendered female figures. A host of male figures is also in the works. Arianne will be a fashion model demonstrating various clothing and fashion accessories for Genesis 2 Females, Genesis 1/Victoria 5, and Victoria 4. Adria will be an artistic nude/ anatomy model for figure drawing reference and anatomy notes. Annabelle will model firearms and act as a female gun pose reference, among other random things. All three will start out in jeans and turtleneck sweaters, an idea given to me by fellow deviant AL-818 al-818.deviantart.com/ some time back.
Arianne had never fashion modeled before and will be a bit shy to try the skimpier things at first and will not be a nude model. Adria has never done any nude modeling before and says she wants to keep her jeans on for as long as possible; she will not be doing any erotic themed nudity. Annabelle is very camera shy and says she wants to stay in her sweaters and jeans, no matter what she is posing for! All three may end up in drawings of mine, especially involving things or settings I do not have in DAZ Studio, such as outfits or weapons I don't have.
