Garden Set for DAZ Studio and Poser

After a very long time I’m again selling a props set for DAZ Studio and Poser users. 🙂 The garden set is available at DeviantART (separate for DAZ Studio and Poser), at Renderhub (for DAZ Studio only) and at Renderosity (for both in one product).

Arch vis with twinmotion

Blender Tutorials on UV Mapping
