USEFUL WWW LINKS

  • DAZ 3D Logo DAZ–The Digital Art Zone–The foremost site for high quality 3D graphics on the web. Their flagship products are: Carrara, Bryce, DAZ Studio and Hexagon. On the DAZ site you'll also find all sorts of characters, objects, textures, and poses for your 3D scenes, plus many tutorials on various aspects of digital art. Be sure to pick up their DAZ Studio product–it's very powerful . . . and free. Also check out their Platinum Club; it's the best way to pick up software and other products very inexpensively Very Highly Recommended.
  •  Smith Micro–One of the premiere sites for graphic software on the web. Their flagship products are Poser, Shade, Manga Studio, Amapi, Motion Artist and Anime Studio. Periodically, they run various promotions which significantly reduce the price of these products. Also check out their tutorial library. Very Highly Recommended.
  • e-on Software–Home of Vue, a major competitor to Bryce. Since I started with Bryce and find it easy to use, I don't have any experience with Vue, but others speak very highly of it. Check out both products and check out their interfaces and features to see which one will fit your needs better. e-on Software has a personal learning edition you can download for free.
  • Content Paradise–In my estimation this is the best digital art site after DAZ. Check out their "Passport" membership program; it's similar to DAZ's Platinum Club. They have forums. If your main interest is anime or manga, this site is for you. Site is associated with e-Frontier; official forums for all their products are found here..
  • Renderosity–Lots of free and commercial products for many of the major graphics tools. Has forums and a tutorial section.
