Welcome to 3d Noir! We aim to provide you with not only a place to show and discuss your 3d illustrations but also an encouraging place to get better at your chosen style of art.
Once upon a time, there was a very homey little forum on the DAZ 3D site called The Commons, where we could do all sorts of silly stuff related to Poser and DAZ Studio. At the time, the thread in Commons focused on women and especially curvacious women with huge bewbs. Render art with men as the subject was scarce! As was illustration that told a good story—and was not necessarily a comic or graphic novel. And there was but one lonely little beefcake thread. Eventually, the chap who hosted the beefcake threads (one after another as the post limit was reached) decided it was too much to look after.
Then your hosts here, LT Roberts and La Nanobot, both of whom have been professional illustrators to varying degrees, decided we wanted to broaden the focus from beefcake (which is still nice) to male-themed art with a focus on illustrations that tell a story. We both happen to be very fond of Film Noir and its offshoots, so we created the Virile Noir thread at DAZ 3D.
Virile Noir is still going strong! But we also recognize that forums change, and we wanted to provide a long-term home for like-minded artists.
In the interests of equality and dignity, we are not restricting subject matter to male-only. We still like it, but we're not going to make you do only guys.
The ground rules are few:
This place is publicly viewable. Don't put anything here that you wouldn't want someone important to you to see.
So, if you have issues or questions or want to invite someone in or just shoot the breeze, please see your friendly moderators!
