Bring On Your Undead

DAZ Monstrosities: Undead Fiend

Zombies For DAZ Studio

What can I say? As a lover of the undead (no, not in the literal sense) DAZ Monstrosities: Undead Fiend is more than tempting. For a long time now I’ve held off on buying undead character/texture sets because, frankly, many of them just didn’t look all that good. This beauty (yes undead hideous beauty – but not literal love) is a show stopper! Personally, I would like to see character textures starting to come out in sizes larger than the current 4096 x 4096, but as someone who rarely does huge renders this is little more than a wishlist upgrade for the market’s consideration.

Of course that would mean more work for the artists, and therefore a probable rise in product price. I only feel compelled to mention this here as the texture details are amazing (beautiful-undead-amazing), and I hate to think of the detail loss/warping on the torso when rendered at large sizes with serious morphing thrown on top. So, that is too say I’m worrying too much about stuff I really don’t need to be worried about.

Undead Fiend MorphsI’m also quite fond of the Wicked Undead Fiend Morphs too with all those gnarled, mutated and wasted details. A huge plus here is that these morphs can be combined with all other Genesis morphs so you can zombify all your custom characters and favourites. The related items like the weapons pack and poses look handy too, but I’m a traditionalist in so far as to say my zombies don’t wield weapons. Of course all zombies are undead, but not all undead are zombies so… extenuating circumstances. Character posing has been something of an undeveloped skill since I started out with DAZ, and a bit of a serial tweaker of stock poses, so I see a lot of value in pose packs.
