At some point, working to enhance a raw render by using postwork is inevitable. Much effort can be put into a render to help make it “pop” by adjusting and re-rendering – ending up with too many iterations and a high cost in time for your efforts.
Have you experienced hours waiting for a render, only to discover render artefacts? The frustration is palpable (I’ve felt this many times) and your intuition tells you that there are ways to fix it…but how?
What about the large heap of renders that you’ve cast upon the “discarded” pile? You may have artwork that’s too dark (or too light), or lacked a certain impact. What if you could add elements to that render, even if you no longer had the original scene?
There are a wide range of valuable opportunities to enrich your art by using postwork – different methods to fix, enhance, overpaint and style your renders. Artists may pick up a few techniques, but this new extensive 8 week course on “DEEP Postwork”, led by Drew Spence will add over 50 postwork techniques to your toolbox.
This first session is free entry, teaching a set of “fixing” techniques for problematic renders.

Session 1 : Course Overview and Fixing Techniques
Please note the start time is earlier than usual
Date : Saturday 27th March
Time : 16:00 GMT (London) / 09:00 PDT (Los Angeles) / 12:00 EDT (New York)
• Overcoming the pain of too much or too little lighting in your scene
• Composition power to rescue bad renders : re-framing / cropping
• Zap poke-through or intersections
• Identify and take care of a range of nasty render artefacts
Learning these techniques will be a powerful increase of your productivity; no need to wait for additional renders. No need to tweak or re-tweak a scene hoping that the next render won’t include the original artefacts.
This coaching group is specifically for :-
1) Artists using any 3D software that need a comprehensive toolkit to fix problematic renders
2) Artists that need to know how to speed up their workflow
3) Artists that want to explore styling and overpainting.
4) Artists that want to utilise older renders to the max.
We’ll be using Photoshop in the main, but will look at the equivalent actions in GIMP or other editing software depending on the make up of the group.
This is a trusted and safe place for you to get support, feedback, accountability, camaraderie and new perspectives from people you can trust and who have similar creative aspirations to you.
We promise to support you in every way we can by sharing knowledge, techniques, resources and mindsets to realise your creative goals.

Here’s what some of our students say about our coaching programs:-
“The DAZ Studio Mastery Group run by Paul and Drew is a great experience. The group is dynamic and interactive. The content is vast and covers a diverse area of the program. I learned a lot in a few short weeks. I have greatly enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend it for any artist who wishes to take their art to the next level or learn more about DAZ. The experience and knowledge I have gained from this group has improved my workflow and techniques. I learned things I didn’t even know existed in DAZ. Paul runs high quality groups worth every penny!”
“I am finding the classes thoroughly fun and engaging, even though I was sure the first couple weeks I was a dreadful noob with nothing useful at all to offer. I love that you are able to uplift everyone’s work and offer encouragement and instil a sense of pride in what each of us has accomplished.”
