Realistic looking skin in DAZ - FAQSo many times I am asked about the skins I make for my characters and how I get those to look realistic, especially for the fantasy races. I am a lazy person and don´t want to write the same answers again and again , so I might as well write a little journal about it. This is no tutorial and does not claim to be a complete collection of all the useful things when creating skin for DAZ... but it might help a few people to get the extra little something into their skin maps and shaders.
Look around when you are among people!
Yup, this is where it all starts. Look at people, look at different skin colors around you, look at all the details, look at reference pictures and close ups of peoples skin. Like this you can get an idea of what you want to achieve. I ALWAYS look at peoples skin (and hair) so I can learn what happens with different lights, where there is bumbs and color differences. Haha, I bet people think I am a scary weird lady who stares at
To depression, for creating days without endWake up to the realization that you've been awake
for seconds, minutes, hours.
You've been awake in this warm, dark room
and you don't know how long it's been
but now you're conscious
and it starts again--
the pain, strong and steady, in your chest.
You gain consciousness in this too warm morning
and your thoughts whir in endless loops
because it's either that or face the weight in your chest.
Light breaks though the window, soft and unwelcome
but you take it as a reluctant gift--
a new distraction from the feelings awake in your chest.
Awake, but not conscious.
So you think yourself in circles a little while longer
waiting for those quiet pains
(the constant reminder)
to gain consciousness.
