Skin shaders can really enhance a character and provide a stunning look. But what happens when you need to swap a skin texture to another character? What are the best resources for skin shaders? How can you adapt or edit a shader to fine tune how your character looks?
In this community workshop, we’re bringing together the collective minds of DAZ Studio artists to share valuable experience on skin shaders. We’ve invited several shader vendors to attend and talk about their products. It’s also an opportunity to share your artwork demonstrating how effective some of these shaders can be, given the proper lighting of course!
DAZ Studio artists are invited to share their tips and artwork with respect to the topics below
If you have a useful tip to share, even if it’s just for a few minutes, then please get in touch!
This event is free entry. There’s also a premium ticket that includes a stack of value!
