What are Artisans?

Starting with this year's cycle, every artist whose works have been selected as one of our Images of the Month can be promoted to Artisan of the Guild if he/she agrees.

It will not only be a title that shows your standing in the Guild, of course. But don't be afraid, we do not ask you to become more active than you like, it's totally up to you.

:bulletred:You can accept the promotion or remain a member, your decision. We totally accept should you wish to remain a member.

:bulletred:In the near future all Artisans will get a higher submission level to our galleries. we will keep you updated on this.

:bulletred:All Artisans will be involved in the process of suggesting the next IOM's. Artisans will be asked to suggest one artwork every month. There is no guarantee this suggestions will finally make it but all suggestions will be taken into consideration! Once again, this is up to the Artisan to decide if he wants to participate or not!

:bulletred:All Artisans will be able to send invitations to their friends or other artists to join the Guild!

:bulletred:In the future Artisans might get asked for their input regarding Guild concerns, if they want to!

So, if your image has been chosen as one of our Images of the Month, expect to get a promotion request soon and accept it, should you wish to.
Looking forward to welcome you as an Artisan soon.

Submission Guidelines!!!

Gallery Guidelines

The Daz-Artists-Guild likes to thank you all for the great art you are submitting to our galleries!
Please see our submission guidelines below before you submit your works to ensure your works will go to the correct folder :

*Fantasy – For fantasy scenes and content. Steampunk, Surreal, Magical, Mystical, Fairie/Fae/Pixie and Anthro may be submitted here. For images where there is a suspension of the accepted rules of nature and physics. For scenes depicting an alternate or fantastic world. For example, referential works would include the work by/or the like of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Terry Brooks, George R. R. Martin, Le Morte d’Arthur, Jacek Yerka, Frank Frazetta, Brom, Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell, Howl’s Moving Castle, Beowulf, or Alice in Wonderland.

*Science Fiction and Utopia – For science fiction and utopia (also dystopian images) scenes and content. This folder is for depictions of the near or far future; including ultra-tech, cyperpunk, and sci-fantasy (i.e. Star Wars or Dune). For example, referential works would include the work by/or the like of Frank Herbert, Philip K. Dick, Authur C. Clarke, Andreas Eschbach, William Gibson, Jules Verne, Jean-Claude Dunyach, Metropolis, Brazil, Dark City, Blade Runner, Night Watch (Ночной дозор), Halo, Starcraft, or Deus Ex.

*Romantic – Historical Romantic or any other images where emotion and mood is presented in a romantic way. Images that would also fit in other categories, like Fantasy, Every Day Life and such can be posted in Romantic, as long as Romance is the main theme of the image.

*Action and Suspense - For scenes depicting action and suspense. This is a broad category, including contemporary, historical, or near-future (i.e. cyberpunk), alternate history (i.e. Steampunk), or fantastic action scenes. This can involve gunplay, sword fights, hand-to-hand combat, fangs, spaceship, aircraft, etc. . The focus of the scene must be either action or impending action. This is another folder that may overlap with multiple folders.

*Dark Themes and Horror – For images containing violence, dark supernatural themes, gothic, or vampire. Please note that images of extreme violence or torture are not included in D.A.G galleries. For example, referential works would include the work by/or the like of Poe, Lovecraft, Poppy Z. Brite, Stephen King, Koontz, Anne Rice, Wes Craven, Silent Hill, Le Pacte des loups, Nosferatu, H.R. Giger, or Rob Zombie.

*Mythology and Myths – For mythological scenes and characters. This folder may overlap with Fantasy, Horror, or Action from time to time; however, the central focus should be a depiction of a mythological event (Saturn eating his children) or character (Aphrodite).

*Pin Up and Glamour – For Pin up and Glamour images. Pin up is broadly defined as consisting of a tempting look and/or a sexy pose to inspire desire in the viewer. Pin up can run the gambit of modern pin up to the classic pin-up of the early 20th century and late 19th Century (think Alberto Vargas or the posters of Henri Toulouse-Latrec) Glamour images are similar to pin up in that they are both artistic images; however, glamour has less emphasis on overt allure and more emphasis on the aesthetic nature of the human form. This folder accepts both; if you are uncertain of whether or not your image fits into this folder perhaps, the Mature folder is the best option. The TOS still applies; NO exposed genitalia.

*Everyday Life – For scenes made with realistic content. In other words, this folder is not for fantasy or science fiction. Examples may be still life, depictions of contemporary life, or historical depictions of life (Medieval, Colonial North American, Victorian England, or cavemen trading stories over a camp fire).

*Portraits – For head and shoulder images; strictly held to waist/hip up images. NOT full figures.

*Scenic – For scenes where the focus is upon the landscape, terrain, architecture or scene setting. Starscapes and Outerspace scenes may be included in this folder.

*Animals – For images with an animal (nonhuman and nonhumanoid) as the central focus. Prehistoric and contemporary species would go into this folder. Fantastic or alien (including dragons, robotic, etc.) creatures would go in their respective folders, Fantasy or Science Fiction or even Mythology and Myths.

*Comic Art And Visual Stories – For one page or multipage comics and multirender visual stories; however, we also accept tribute or fan art renders of comic characters.

*Marketplace and Promotions – For morphs, objects, skins, clear-cut images for post-work, brushes, and fonts. We like to see DAZ compatible products; however, that is not a restriction for this folder. (We recognize that our members use a diversity of tools in their work.) ALL obvious promo pieces containing "Artistic License", "Elite 3D Models", etc. monikers go here; NO exceptions.

*WIP Section – For works in progress or exploring experimental artistic concepts.

*Tutorials – For tutorials on digital art techniques. This is not exclusive to just DAZ software; but may also include post-work tutorials.

*Mature Content – For anything mature themed; images must have a filter. This includes images with exposed breasts (insuffciently occluded) and certain artistic nudes; however, the TOS regarding exposure of genitalia still applies. NO EXPOSED genitalia. (see excerpt from our TOS on lower section of this page!)

*Artistic Full Nudity – For all images showing either male or female full nudity and/or having visible genitalia. We will decline any material which is defamatory, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually explicit, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy. No rapescenes, no sexual acts, no masturbation.

Thank you!

The original Daz Artists Guild was founded in 2007 by a group of fellow Daz Studio users and friends. At that time I made a video as a thank you to these guys and our members for the overwhelming starting success of our web-community. It featured my images at that time. Now that we started this group here on DeviantArt, this is more like a sentimental memory....but who knows? Once this group is getting bigger I might make a new promo vid.......

Watch it here!

Now that you enjoyed my "thank you" video, are you ready for the first offical Daz Artists Guild Video, created by our very talented Guild Master Evoluzione.

8-) Watch it here... 8-)

and here is another Fan Video made for our guild :…

I am looking for some info as to resources such as books, vids, pdfs..., whether free or not, as to poser and/or daz scripting methodologies and attendant apis. Included in what I am looking for is info regarding the modding of .pz2 (straight inline code; have done some already) & .duf (use of function calls which look like DS api calls) files.  I have already found some info via Google but am hoping for something more insightful from those in the know. I have a basic knowledge of Python (have looked at some poser scripts where some function calls seem to be poser api calls). I am fairly adept at Java/C++ and fluent in other more archaic languages and packages (e.g. C, Powerbuilder). If you think you can help, please note me/leave a reply/ or leave a comment on my profile. I will only contact you directly with your approval. Thank you in advance.

I have a question myself. I do daz studio renders, but my rig is pretty limited meaning my work isn't 'top quality' in that I can't render images that are darn near photo realistic. Could I still join and submit work?
tman300 Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2017
Yes. Just do the best that you can and submit to the correct folder and all should be just fine. Even with an average rig good lighting and material settings yield quite good 3Delight renders. Invite sent so look for it.

I have a question that perhaps someone in the group can answer. I cannot get the DAZ Vicky 4 morphs to work in my Poser configuration, I have tried morphing my V4 model in both Poser 7 and Poser 9, but the morphs don't activate. Does anyone have any suggestions to get the V4 morphs to work?
