• Creating a scene in DAZ Studio for a Fantasy drawing 02

  • Part one of this project is here.

    This is the second part in the creation of my Fantasy Scene in DAZ Studio. When a fight is going on there is often going to be people around watching. Especially when the under dog, or the supposed underdog, the girl in this case is winning the fight. I have added a simple house front that is a stand in for a Ale House. I built it in SketchUp.

    When one is adding people to a scene, even if they are just background people, you have to think about what kind of people would be where the scene takes place. In this case I think loners, poor people, thieves, cut throats, outcast, warriors and the people who works there would fit in. Maybe one of them is just itching to be a part of the fight?

    This project is evolving and changing somewhat as I go. I still have some problems drawing more then two characters in a image, but now when I’m building the scene in 3D before I draw it, why not take all the advantage it gives?

    I’m going to take it real slow with this project so I don’t have to go back and fix a lot of mistakes. I might produce a few draw overs of the scene so I can see where I’m going.

  • I’m about to do a Fantasy drawing I have had in my head for a while that is based on a fast sketch I made a good while ago. To set this project up in a good way so everything gets into place I’m using Daz Studio 4.5 Pro to create the basic parts of the scene.

    Next I’m thinking about drawing a simple 2D background and setting it up on a 3D box to build a house in SketchUp and then add it into the scene in Daz Studio. When I have all the basic parts in the 3D scene I want to have, I will then render it again into a image and trace it with basic shapes (circles and so on) and then the real drawing begins. Tracing the details of the DAZ Studio bodies often leads to a anatomical mess and makes it harder to add to it in the drawing process. At least, that what I think. 🙂 With shapes I can draw the characters as I want them and use the shapes as guides so I know where everything is suppose to be.

    What is going on in the drawing?

    I think the girl is a master swordsman and the man is a brute that thinks he had a easy way with attacking her and doing whatever he wants. To bad for him. The story will probably evolve and change.

    Here is the drawing that got me the idea for this project:

    More updates hopefully soon!
