Product Information

Dramatically expand your asset library for male characters! There are a huge amount of female assets for the various DAZ Studio figures, but there is a limited amount of content for male characters, resulting in far fewer choices for artists.

The problem is seen across all the categories of assets in terms of skin, hair, clothing and more. Thus, finding ways to utilize female figure assets for males in DAZ Studio, or vice-versa can vastly expand the possibilities available to you.

Parminder Baddhan shows comprehensive solutions to this challenge, helping you to utilize your existing content library, create unique looking characters AND save money in the process using this unique form of kitbashing.

About the Presenter: Parminder Baddhan

“I’m Parmy Baddhan, founder of Mastery Grit Comics and I tell compelling superhero stories through the graphic novel medium using DAZ Studio.

I started my journey with DAZ Studio in December 2018 to express my creativity. I realized very early that lighting was the biggest element to create good renders and I focused my efforts there!

About 2 months into my DAZ Studio journey, I decided to tell superhero stories that I grew up watching and reading as a kid in the 1980’s.

In March 2019, I created a short story called Assassins, helping me to realize that I had a gap on some skills and knowledge to take things further. As a result I turned to Digital Art Live to help me achieve my storytelling goals with DAZ Studio!

I created my YouTube channel in May 2019, where I share my knowledge helping DAZ Studio beginners create quality renders and understand the specifics of 3D Digital Art.

In December 2019 I decided to create my first professional graphic novel called Tiger Dragon: The Rebirth. The story follows the journey of Ayame Ozaki who realizes that normal life is not for her and the universe had a greater purpose in store . The graphic novel is available to pre-order from my website.

To help me achieve my goals I created my motto, #commit2mastery. The #commit2mastery motto is a reminder to always-be-learning (ABL) and progress is all that matters. This also includes transforming my mindset to create the belief that I can achieve my goals and learn any skill.

If you want to live your dream life #commit2mastery”
