March Madness: Day 26

March 26 Selection of 3d ModelsHere we are at day 26. And I have good news: the $10 off a $50 spend discount has returned this evening! With a DAZ Original Category sale, this is a perfect time to stock up.

But before you stock up on wishlist items, first take a look at today’s new round of deals and see if anything grabs you. Post-apocalyptic with a sci-fi twist is one of today’s themes, with a choice of exciting releases.

Mec4D has your women kitted out with Apocalipsa – not just with an outfit and helmet to fit the Genesis 2 girls, but also a bladed mace and a bike. To complete this fantastic bundle, you get a selection of fight poses.

To create a worthy male companion for this warrior, look to Design Anvil’s new products. The Justiciar Armored Suit is tech armour for Genesis 2 males, and has an impressive number of component parts plus 14 textures. To make him fully battle-ready, just add one of the 3 futuristic weapon choices: photon blaster, shark shock cannon or bolt thrower grenade. As a separate add-on, you can get a pose pack with 20 combat poses custom-designed to work with this suit.

That’s not all. While it might seem expensive, the Portals of Power release is something special. More on that below, plus a tutorial and some new poses. Or, if you can’t wait to see preview images, just jump on over to the DAZ3D March Sale page.

IgnisSerpentus has one of the most eye-catching styles, and her new releases is no exception. Her Serpentum Portae (Serpent of the Gate) is the first in a series of Portals of Power. The Serpent of the Gate collection combines the 4 elements with 4 distinctive cultures: a Grecian Wind portal, an Aztec Fire portal complete with flames, an arch shaped Celtic one (entwined with snakes) for Earth, and a magnificent circular pool with floating flowers for Egypt. All include their own special effect lighting that IgnisSerpentus does so impressively.

I admit, this is one of those 3d model collections that I would normally glance at and move on, because it’s not my usual genre. That would be my loss, because the minute you take a closer look you can tell it’s a unique product that’s packed with options. It’s the kind of thing any digital artist would be inspired by.

Finally, if you want to improve your art, Khory’s sharing secrets today in the Introduction to Character Surface tutorial. You can also breathe life into Vicky and Mike and rescue them from the T-Pose with blondie9999’s Exuberance Poses. These 16 poses are full of movement and I challenge you not to smile at Michael jumping for joy or Victoria punching the air!

The ‘still punch-worthy’ items on the promotion page don’t currently show everything from yesterday, but since that often sorts itself out later in the day I’ve listed here those that should be there.

Today Only Discounts on Selected Items

I had so much to say about today’s new 3d launches that I’ll let the ‘Other Featured Items’ speak for themselves. You might notice a continuation of the post-apocalyptic theme, with and without zombies.

Currently there are a couple of products that have the wrong discount and will probably disappear later in the day, so I haven’t included them. Some new items may appear when these are fixed.

Artist Store Sales: Save 40% Today

Along with today’s artists, there’s another category sale, and it’s a big one. Yes, today’s the day to complete your collection of DAZ Original People. (A great use of ‘punches’ collected during the sale or your monthly PC voucher – my own is long gone, sadly.) With 611 products to choose from including characters, bundles and morphs, there’s surely something for everyone today.

Remember Platinum Club members can save even more on anything that’s a DAZ Original – so your discounts on this entire category (newest releases excepted) start from 58% for one or 65% off for 2. In other words, buy any 2 products and you only pay 35% of their original price!

Also make time to explore the stores of Khory, Blondie9999 and IgnisSerpentus, all new to this section today.

Khory has shaders and dynamic clothing, and more recently a nice selection of poses for your generation 6 characters.

Blondie9999 is my go-to for tutorials on mastering the hidden secrets of DAZ Studio, and like Khory also has pose collections for the newest DAZ Original figures.

IgnisSerpentus has a wonderland of a store, full of strange beings and amazing effects. I like her texture tiles too. All who enter, prepare to be dazzled!
