This info about the Rendering Settings come directly from a forum post by LuucEarth. I found it incredibly helpful and want to keep it bookmarked for myself as well. Do check out the rest of the thread though for other gems!
I’ve been using Daz3d daily for the past 30+ days and still very much consider myself a beginner. Here are the top things that I’ve learned and/or found extremely useful. In no real particular order of importance: Sales- There’s always another saleDaz is really good about putting out some discount sales so I’m finding if I want something that is either not on sale or is slightly discounted-just wait. I don’t know if they do some weird statistic voodoo but pretty much every time I’ve said I’ll just wait the item I wanted ended up on sale the next day or so. Wonderful but still kind of creepy- in a…
This is a really cool effect I’ve only mainly seen people do in Photoshop. Really cool to find an auto action that works in CSP too. Thanks Raikuki! https://assets.clip-studio.com/en-us/detail?id=1751433
Maybe this is the start of something useful? 🙂 I’ve been trying to put my Skillshare subscription to good use- aka actually watching and implementing techniques from all the classes I have bookmarked. So if Skillshare Saturday (sharing classes I have found particularly useful) is something you are into please let me know! The class I want to share today is- Adobe Photoshop CC by Daniel Scott. (https://skl.sh/2RrnIsD– using this link will also give you 2 free months of Skillshare (and me a referral bonus-thanx!) if you don’t already have an account and/ if you want to buy the course outright it’s also available at Udemy here ) So about…
One of the things I noticed about Insecure was how beautifully lit everything was all of the time. It was great to find this video that showed how intentional that was by Ava Berkofsky (Insecure’s Director of Photography). These days experimenting with color, skin tones, and lighting is something I’m having a lot of fun doing and even though the video linked is mainly about photography/cinematography I got a lot out of it as an artist. Another person that does an exceptional job of lighting darker skin is Eric Wilkerson.

I picked up a great Photoshop trick from Twitter user @Treatscraft. This is a quick and easy way to try out different color ideas based off of another image. Simply go to Image_>Adjustments> Match colors. From there choose the opened image you want to sample colors from. You can find the informative post here –> Tweet.
I’m getting a head start on my 2019 resolution to ‘master’ Photoshop. I feel like ‘master’ is perhaps an overly ambitious resolution but it sounds more goal worthy than ‘get to a point where I don’t rage quit in frustration because PS doesn’t do YY like app ZZ.’ With PS coming to iPad as well it seems a good time to put in the time to really get familiar with the software. So with that in mind I’m going to be posting frequently a condensed-ish post with tips and tricks I am picking up and sharing them here.
