I discourage the use of these programs in introductory 3D classes; it’s a much better idea to learn to build your own characters, even if they are very simple. Or better yet, start out with an interior or exterior architectural project and not with the daunting task of creating lifelike people. But tucking a human next to a towering building makes it clear that this is no ordinary hut. By the way, Daz 3D also sells a relatively inexpensive, full-blown modeling, texturing, animating, and rendering application called Carrara.
