World in Wireframe – BuggaBoo Practise

Even though I started out with this graphics hobby with DazStudio, that software has always been somewhat of a challenge for me and it remains a source of frustration to this day. It wasn’t untill I bought myself my first copy of Poser – version 6 if I can recall – that the whole world of 3D Computer Graphics started to make sense.
I’ve always wondered why. To me it’s MSDos vs Windows. I totally wrecked 3 PC’s trying to figure out MSDos but as soon as I started up a Windows computer I didn’t even have to read the manual. Its the interface, I can’t make heads or tails with that interface that DazStudio uses but since the two worlds merge in some areas I don’t wish to exclude any customer.

I do have DazStudio installed, not the latest-latest version/upgrade with Genesis number whatever but the latest enough. Genesis 8 is the limit for me and I stopped with Victoria 4 since I can’t keep track of the stampede of Victoria’s that are released every year. When it comes to DazStudio, I’ve lost interest in their figures – female, male or otherwise.
But all the Hivewire Figures are compatible with DazStudio and since animal poses are a bit more tricky I really need to learn how to use that UI and at least feel comfortable with it.

So I thought I’d treat myself to a cute little character that uses G8F as a base and start to create some poses for her. I don’t really like any of the grown Genesis 1 to 8 figures that much, I never had the urge to create anything for them and to be honest, browsing the Daz website there are more then enough pose-sets for them around.

And the Queen of cuteness – LadyLittlefox – released just the thing to keep me interested creating poses for DazStudio. BuggaBoo is a cute toon character that is not as versatile as a fullgrown human character so for me it’s a great character to pose with and learn to create some Artwork in DazStudio.

I’ve created 5 poses so far, also a Default and their mirrored version so a total or 10 poses. I’m basing them on other poses I have made in the past for various other characters and I’m not yet sure as to release them as a freebie or sell them.

As always I try to create the poses to be as realistic and as detailed as possible, though with Toon character that is not easy. Toons are – of course – caricatures of the human world. They exaggerate human charactaristics and personalities and BuggaBoo surely is cuteness personified.

Even though Boo has a slightly different bodystructure then your average human figure, it is difficult to created the same human poses but not impossible. I will just have to go about it with a different approach then I normally do and that is what I need to learn if I ever want to create more animal poses and render their promo’s in DazStudio.

In the meantime I’ll continue the poses I have started for Dawn, Dusk, L’Femme, L’Homme and all the others.

  1. Cute render of Boo!
    For me, Poser is Mac OS and Daz Studio is Windows OS. Poser was software for Mac OS in the first place. As a Mac user, I like Poser’s UI than Daz Studio’s. But, I’m not good at making poses, even with Poser.
