Sherman for Genesis 2 Male
Daz Celebrity 3D Model
Sherman for Genesis 2 Male is a photorealistic character created by Rpublishing and Blacksmith3D. We haven’t reviewed any of their characters before so we are excited to take a look at their work. Please read on to learn more about Sherman.
The artists have taken a lot of time and effort to add extra maps for photo realism. For poser users they can take advantage of the SSS (subsurface scattering) map to add an extra layer of realism. For those new to 3D art and animation, SSS simulates the effect of light scattering and penetrating through objects. An example of this is when light hits skin, some of it will be absorbed into the top layers as it is semi transparent. Also Daz Studio users are in no way left out! There are bump, specular, transparency maps included as well as SSS maps. If you would like to learn more about the finer details of using these maps in your digital art, you can find more learning over at our tutorials page.
Sherman includes seperate head and body morphs as well as four custom expressions. Furthermore, a lot of effort has been made to ensure that this character looks great when posed, and that the face does not distort. This has been done by using a feature called ERC (Enhanced Remote Control), that adjust the facial features to keep them looking natural in all poses. As you can see from the promo images, the results are very good.
