I keep getting requests for customized fashion figure templates: heads, men, different body types, etc. I would love to provide those kinds of templates, but there’s a problem. I don’t have the time. Between my day job and other committments, I just haven’t had the time to give this site the attention it (and you!) deserve. So let me show you how I’ve been creating the templates on this site. With a bit of practice, you’ll be able to use it to create your own templates.
The software use is called Daz Studio. It is free, and you can find it here:
When you download Daz Studio, you’ll get some content (ie, the 3D models) for free. But Daz basically gives away the software so they can sell you the models. The model I used for many of my figures is called “Victoria 5.” Here’s a link: http://www.daz3d.com/victoria-5. However, since I started working on these models, Daz has a new version called Victoria 6. You can find that model here. https://www.daz3d.com/
Now, the basic Victoria figure is not going to look like a 9 head fashion model. It will look more like a real woman. Not that that’s a bad thing, but it’s not quite what we are looking for. So you’ll need to download (buy) a set of ”morphs” that will let you change the shape of the figure, including the length of her legs. Here are the ones I use: http://www.daz3d.com/genesis-evolution-morph-bundle/
And finally, you can easily pose the figure yourself, but it’s a lot faster to simply buy some premade poses and use those. Of course, you can modify the poses as well to suit your specific needs. There are a ton of them out there, but these two should get you started.
Using Daz Studio takes some effort, but I think you’ll find it worth it. Imagine being able to create fashion figure templates to suit any body type. With a bit of work, you’ll be able to do it!
