I hope Easter brought some beautiful weather to your part of the world. However, I know that digital artists are always happy to stay indoors when there are new 3-d models and products to play with!
This weekly update will alert you to all the best deals, so that your art budget can stretch a little further. You can also get hold of all the 3d model giveaways that happen each week on DAZ3D. This week there’s an extra Easter basket set full of edible goodies including a chocolate bunny, eggs, and a jar of jellybeans! You even get a side table to display it on. Thanks go to the ARTCollab duo for this Easter treat!
Man of the moment Gianni 6 is still heavily featured on the site, but the week has also seen some exciting releases from Stonemason, deviney, Dreamlight, and many other popular artists. (JoeQuick and Bluebird 3D get a special mention further down…)
Over on Hivewire3D, you do not want to miss the new bird release. The Dabbling Ducks by Ken Gilliland are here! If you haven’t rushed out to buy them, I hope to soon give you a little extra preview right here. Ken’s birds are now on sale in the 8th Annual SBRM Audubon Birthday sale, so head on over and pick up a great deal.
The Freebies includes all current free and ‘free with purchase’ 3D models. These include the weekly model, the month’s special freebie for Platinum Club members, and any additional giveaways to mark holidays and special occasions. HiveWire3D has also featured free products lately so I’ll alert you to those too. Currently you can grab yourself a wonderfully weathered garden statue with ivy options.
You can find the current Fast Grab selection on this page. The general rule here is that items will be discounted by 70%. There is no additional discount for PC members (let’s face it, paying just 30% of the full price is a sweet deal in any case) but you can use your monthly $6 off voucher on these items if DAZ3D is listed as a vendor or co-vendor.

I’ve started including the multi-buy discounts on new releases. These can be complex and I won’t always include them all — some are just too complicated to unravel here and others don’t give a big enough discount (50% or more). However, if it’s a single artist or, even better, a single product, I’ll list the discounts for you. Then you just need to head on over to the store homepage and click the promotion banner to see what products you can match it with for extra money off.
This week, for instance, there’s a promotion where you can buy a Pretty3D outfit or ShanasSoulmate texture and get a hefty discount on other items from the associated vendor’s store. Plus OziChick’s new character and clothing releases can be combined with certain other new releases to get up to 60% off each if you buy 3.
Now that I’m finally feeling healthy again, I hope to start telling you more about the New Releases too, as I did during March Madness. Today (Wednesday) there are some great new additions to the store. Along with OziChick’s gorgeous girls, there are some nice new sets. Quiet Nook by Bluebird 3d especially caught my eye with all its intricate detail and classy texture work.
I also can’t resist one of Friday’s new releases — Mr Turtle and the Conspicuous Interloper, by JoeQuick. It’s such a creative idea. Not only do you get a fantastically done Mr. Turtle, but the adorable ‘hand-stitched’ turtle costume will perfectly fit Genesis Child.
