Okay maybe someone here can answer my question, but do people using DazStudio or Poser actually make their models or do they all use prem-made bases other people made then make montages with those, render them and call them their artworks??? I'm pretty confused because at first I was like woah, all these amazing pin-ups everywhere, but then I noticed 99% of the artworks are made in either Poser or DazStudio and after looking it up, it seems like those softwares do all the job for you?? :o I'm not judging anyone or saying these people didn't work to get their results, I actually would really like to understand since I'v been studying 3D for quite a while now, but never saw that side of the 3D world before now...

I never understood why people looked down on us Poser users. There are a few Purist groups out there that don't think the work we do has any effort behind it. Granted I've spoken out against many groups. Because I don't like the way they always make assumptions and don't understand the Poser/Daz community. To them they look at the term and that is what they think of us "Posers." Because we're buying the work of others rather than working entirely from scratch. I've gone into these wars against purist groups alone because I know I wanted my voice to be heard. I've been working with poser for at least about 5 years now and I know that it's a fun community. People enjoy doing things the easy way because working from scratch such as rigging, etc. That's a lot of work and it's difficult if you're learning by yourself. 

I know we live in this "Don't care what anyone think" phase of life, but not caring doesn't mean that you should just accept purist and their BS if they give it to you. After all, we're artists in our own way. For many of us, we do what we do as a means to enjoy ourselves. I wouldn't be caught dead spending hours and hours working on a model or a scene just for comments and approval from groups. Most of the artists in my favorites gallery are professionals, they make money doing what they do. Their not creating that difficult sh*t for fun, and their certainly not doing it for purist approval either. 

I have always thought of myself as the voice of the Poser Community. Debating and going at it with Purist. At one point they tried to convince DA that what we were doing with Poser models was similar to copy right infringement and that we shouldn't be allowed to use Poser/Daz figures unless we completely did everything 100% no short cuts.  When I found out about this in one of the forums some years ago. I joined in and defended. I was not the only one there defending, but I played a very major role in it regardless. I was at least the most aggressive. Purist are the worse kind of critics. They would rather someone struggle than to have fun, which is the whole point behind poser/daz to have fun and experiment. Then if you wish to move on to something more challenging, that is the choice of the artist not the purist.
