PLease see the link http://www.spookybookstore.com/samplepictures.htm.

Can anyone tell me how these pictures were done? I know I've seen this style somewhere before, but it escapes me. Anyone who has some insight into the process, please give input. Thanks in advance.

It looks like they were created using a 3D program such as Daz3d, Poser or Maya.





Actually, I just read at the bottom of the page and it tells you what they used:

"A special Thanks to my great programs: Poser 7 - PSP x3 - Renderosity - Daz 3D - Expression Web 3

Very sharp observer! Do these programs require a great deal of artistic talent or does much of it come from knowledge of the software?

There are all kinds of support and products available.  Renderosity is a great source for free/fee models, clothes, textures, props, backgrounds and more. They offer tutorials on how to do things as well.

Depending on what all you want to do here is a breakdown of the three products IMHO.

DAZ 3d - least expensive, easiest to work with but has limitations. Doesn't need a real strong system to run.

Poser 3d - somewhat expensive, a little harder to work with but much more capabilities. Pretty high system requirements however I was able to use an older version for several years on a laptop and only found it mildly sluggish especially when rendering a very "busy" project.

Maya 3d - very expensive, much harder to work with but is used for professional work in movies. Also very high system requirements to really do anything with.

Glad I could help.  I have used all three programs myself.  I like DAZ for quick projects and Poser for more involved.  I have been looking at that site a little more and DAZ would work well for something like that without breaking the bank.   :)

When you want to get into animation or more complex work then I would suggest looking at Poser.

Best of luck and thank you for the points.
