So I have a scene that I want to produce of two people on a boat. I am relatively new to blender on the grand artists’ continuum. I have gone through many of Mr. Price’s tutorials and feel confident that I can render the surroundings (boat interior and such) but it is the characters I have no clue about. I can sketch out the scene fairly well on paper or in PS, but I need this to be as photorealistic as possible for the intended application.
Do I use prebuilt characters such as in Poser or daz3D, pose them and import? Do I model them myself (not sure I can)? Do I get a third party low-poly already rigged character (this will not be animated btw)? Also, how do I render the skin? I am lost, but I see such great artwork on this site and Artstation, so I know it is possible.
Is 3D rendering the best way to go? It seems to be the best way to get something photorealistic, but I am not sure.
Thanks in advance,
