Make a cross 2 box primitive
pose a figure in crux pose
(add hair)
move crux posed figure in position on cross
make a cilinder primitive and a cube primitive and a cone primitve
make a nail from it. group the 2/ together.
make duplicates of the nails. 3 or 4
place nails in the right position through the figure inot the cross.
First crux made.
Maybe add a plane primitive to act as gound plane
experiment from there.

Lots of Youtube video's and tutorial to be found on the web, google:p

With the primitives in DAZ you can make quite a lot of rough stuff in the beginning.
Scale/move and rotate. mix and match :)

Also, you can download or purchase premade assets for either Daz Studio or Poser for that:

And if you are really into creating your own assets, you may want to learn Blender, as it could be the best free tool to create such contents.

Creating simple things with primitives is a good start to get an idea what working in 3D is.
wouldn t advise the bought crux set at renderosity as it's made for an old figure version.
pose will not properly work for the newer figures

The one at shareCG is at least free:p
Lollame have you ever worked in 3D?

Here is a cross, in a .obj file, made by Ascanio some year ago.
Create a folder named Obj, copy the unzipped file into.
Copy the folder in your 'My Library' Daz folder.
Open Daz Studio.
Import the obj file in your working area: menu, files, import obj.
You have a cross.
You have now to apply a wood map.
Open the surface option and paste your preferred texture map into the basic texture thumb. (as this or any other 1584727108350.png rotate it by 90°)

After that you have to do the bump and displacement maps.
Turn to black and white the texture with any software.
Apply the map into the bump and into the displacement thumbs.
You now have to set the values of the bump and displacement with the cursors.

Here a crown and a nail in .obj file. (corona e chiodo)

You have to load it with the command 'import'.
attach the crown to the model's head and adjust the scales and position.
Apply the texture (the same as the cross or whatever you like)
For the nail apply the texture you find in the zip file.
Move it to the correct position, hands or wrists and feet.
attach them with your body part.

Making a realistic 3D character is a challenging task, and making it look like a real person is even more so. Fortunately, softwares like DAZ Studio come up with a generic model (called 'Genesis' if I recall correctly?) that you can morph into different characters. It's similar to the character creator in Skyrim. So if you know how to make a beautiful character in such games, you may have a chance to make a decent human character with DAZ too.

So, I think your best bet is learn how to morph the base model character and play around them until you get the hang of it. Having reference photographs taken from different angles of the person you want to depict can help greatly, so it is highly recommended.

To go beyond that, you will probably need to learn either 3D modelling or machine learning, both of which can require much more time and efforts than learning DAZ Studio.

As a beginner I would advise using the standard models, learn the program and its possibilities before attempting to make custom models.
DAZ has a steep learning curve.. dont rush it

ok installed all... but i have a question...
if i want draw for esemple a real actress or draw someone how i can do this?
If you have the latest release of Daz Studio, 4.12, you have also Genesis 8 Female character, and Genesis 8 Male.
You have to find the morphs add-on, if you will do a good real actress.

For free you can find some interesting preload shapes here: https://www.most-digital-creations.com/freestuff.htm
it's a freestuff from the same author. Not pirated.

the textures are very well done, and they are a clone of true celebrity.
