The Dominators Series
The Dominator Series - by Petipet
Petipet is one of the Daz 3d Premiere Artists who graciously contribute to the special savings received through the PC+ Membership service.
Through the years he's released some wonderful products in the form of cars, buildings and environments, motorcycles, aircraft and space ships.
I bought some of the very first products he's offered at Daz 3d, then under a different name, but only for a short time. The White Needle (now called Aircraft Needle) and Starship Harpoon were so amazing to me - both in how they looked and how wonderful they were to work with in my scenes, that I became an immediate fan!
Now I own a large majority of the products available in his Daz 3d store.
A few years ago he released a product called "Dominator".
It really grabbed me - how menacing it looked, and it's a space ship.
After a few quick render tests and playing with the many control morph dials, I immediately had to start animating this thing. The energy beam that this thing blasts is nothing short of extraordinary.
Little did I realize then that Petipet was going to continue with the series.
This short video only shows a glimpse of how terrifying these Dominator ships can be animated to look, but I think it at least gives an example of the main ship that comes with the product.
As if the ship itself wasn't enough, this thing (at the low PC+ price) also comes with crabs, drones and terrain!
These aren't at all the same horrifying Dominator Crabs that came as a later release, but get a swarm of these things coming after you with a cloud of those drones... yeah... it's scary!!!
The kit comes with a separate crater prop that goes with the terrain to help us make our scenes get Dominated!
Just take a look through the product pages and check out everything that comes with these things. It's amazing even if you aren't PC+
I'll be back to show more. In the meantime, check out those promos. Each of them contain more than what a single promo image can handle, and they're very fun and easy to work with in Daz Studio as well as Carrara!
Have a Question? Just Ask!
I love to help others as best I can. This is a rather broad topic: CG Filmmaking, so my articles on any particular topic may not answer your specific question.
Most of the questions directed to me are regarding Carrara or How did I do this?
For these sorts of things, post your question at the Carrara Discussion Forum (or another appropriate category) at Daz 3D.com forums, and if I don't see it right away, someone else might. They are such a friendly and helpful bunch! I've learned so much from that forum over the years!
