I am a 47 year old British woman who combines my lifelong love of horses with digital art. Since discovering Bryce 2 and Poser 3 way back in the late 90's I work mainly with Daz Studio, Poser, Carrara, Hexagon, Photoshop and Cinema 4d, but I also love web design (particularly working with Wordpress) and photography. Due to health problems I can no longer ride but along with my daughter and fiance we own several horses, two dogs, a pair of ferrets all of which help keep me going! I was born in the Chinese year of the horse (fire horse) and my western zodiac sign, Sagittarius is also part horse, maybe that explains a lot! I am an avid reader of sci fi and fantasy novels, Peter F. Hamilton, Greg Bear and George R. R. Martin being my current favourite authors. My secret guilty pleasure is re watching my Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Sarah Connor Chronicles back to back once every few months or so whilst working on my 3d and wordpress projects and studying for my science degree!

3d Horse model evolution for Poser & Daz studio

The 3d digital horse models for Poser and Daz Studio

There have been many different 3d horse models over the years (since 1999) that I have been using Poser. In terms of realism and posability they have come a long way yet some of the older models still have a place in your runtime. This is a series of articles discussing all of the ones that I have owned and their pros and cons from the old P4 horse to the Hivewire 3d Horse.

Hivewire Horse Remap to Take Millennium Horse Textures

Remapping the gorgeous Hivewire 3d horse to the Millennium horse UVs so I can use my own textures.

A little bit if time on my hands and I had been really missing being able to use my huge library of textures that I’ve created over the years so instead of retrofitting around 60 textures I thought it would be quicker to remap the HWHorse obj UVs instead.

After several different versions I’ve just finished a new digital art image, Herald. The figures (Genesis and Sub Dragon) were rendered in Daz Studio 4.6 and heavy postwork done in Photoshop and Flame Painter.
