The village scene (which includes train) is called Amethyst Hill.  I got the original model from SketchUp Warehouse made by Demuline.  I have included the original model to show what it looks like with 2D trees!!  I had removed almost all the trees and used 3D trees from Bryce 7.1 to give a more realistic feel to the scene.  The train model, bakkie with horse trailer and vintage car are free models I have downloaded separately.

The 2nd town scene consists of only SketchUp models.  The mountain is part of Bryce 7.1.

The donut mini shop model is from SketchUp Warehouse.  The characters are Genesis 2 Male/Female from Daz Studio 4.8.

The shop interior is from the shop I have built in SketchUp.  All interior parts are from SketchUp Warehouse.  The character is Genesis 2 Female (DS Studio 4.8).

The attached image is done in Bryce 7.  The "Burger Shot" model is from Google SketchUp Warehouse.  The old car is also from the same site.  The customers are the Genesis 2 male/female from Daz Studio 4.

A Bryce render of a ventriloquest puppet.  The body part I got from SketchUp Warehouse and the head freebie here.  I have to add that I am surprised with the quality of head as appearing in Bryce. The original model look quite strange and also have very bad parts at the back of the head.  I have turned the head in such a way one can not see it! And it can't be morphed, well I haven't tried it out yet. The head expression is too scary for my liking!  The body are in 2 parts and can't be morphed properly.  The arms are fixed to body and can't be moved.

The character is Genesis male figure from Daz Studio.  I need to work more with exporting from DS to Bryce.  Genesis has a strange body texture! The puppet colours are quite nice though.


Here is the 1st building I have attempted in SketchUp which is quite user friendly and has a much easier interface than for instance Blender!  The other buildings, shop interior and vehicle are from SketchUp Warehouse.  The characters are  Daz Studio's G2 male and G2 female and K4 (Kids4).  K4 is dressed with a paperboy set by Cybertenko which is a freebie at Renderosity.

The 1905 Circa Perambulator 3D model made by Hypnagogia which I have used in the "High Society" scene further down here, I have modified into a stroller style pram with umbrella and footrest.  Unfortunately some parts of the model can't be ungrouped and therefore not be textured the way I would love to! The umbrella and handle are models I got over at the Google Sketchup Warehouse.  For the modification I had to take the model into Hexagon 2.5.  The scene as seen here is done in Bryce 7.

Pram to the left is the original from Hypnagogia which textures beautifully!  You can download his model at

Done in Hexagon 2.5:

For the "High Society" render I have used SketchUp building models from (1) here and (2) here .

Both the prams, 1905 Circa Perambulator (Pram) by Hypnagogia and "very old pram" by Jacky Tessier are available from (currently there are problems to log in to ShareCG, hopefully the site will be back on again soon!). Both the Genesis 2 Females are dressed in "Roaring Twenties" clothing by Wilmap available on her site here .  These clothing originally made to fit Genesis.  The streets are from a product called "City Roads" from Daz3D.

I have struggled quite a bit to add more lighting inside of the tea room as originally it was too dark to see anything inside!  It is a fully furnished building which make this a wonderful model to work with as one can do interiors as well. :)

I have quickly done a test render today with a lovely vintage perambulator (pram) done by Mark aka Hypnagogia he shares at  The scene is done in Bryce 7.  Some strange reflections in the windows but this is only a test render.  Even Genesis female is not dressed correctly, needs some vintage clothing to go with the scene but all in good time! :)

The street scene is part of a product called "Le Faubourg".

After seeking for help in the Daz3D Forums I have managed to start learning to do clothing.  The people who have helped me are Patience55 (Catherine), Roygee (Roy) and Ben.  Catherine and Roy helped me with Hexagon 2 and Ben with Daz Studio.  Roy made the helmet and taught me how to make the glasses screen part. Roy also made a zipper but not really noticeable on the images and also taught me on how to make a zipper myself! Catherine taught me how to cut the mesh (model) to form the cyclist style jersey and wetsuit. Ben taught me how to add wind blow morphs to the jersey with the d-form plugin in Daz Studio. The gloves, socks and shoes are made by Wilmap (Wendy) for another cyclist clothing outfit.  The bicycle is a freebie I got on the web.  The road is made by Fictionalromance called "Dirt Road" with paved road texture add-on, both available for free at

I still have to work on the "poke-through" which appears on the jersey.  The scene render is done in Bryce 7.
