I've seen alot of good poser stuff and want to try it out I got my hands on a copy of poser 7 but don't know crap about modeling. Any key sites with tutorials? I wanna do stuff like Toxic Angel from renderosity below is a link to his gallery:

http://www.renderosity.com/mod/gallery/browse.php?user_id=17015

Oh and do the models and textures and props from previous versions work with Poser 7? Any help is appreciated.

I am a Poser 7 user, and love the program. I never had any problems importing content from P6 to P7, I couldn't tell you from earlier versions than P5. Bear in mind that some of the newest content is specifically made for P6 or above due to their material shaders. Toxic Angel does do some killer work, but he only uses Poser for the figure, everything else is postwork, a testament to his skills. If you're looking for 3D modeling, I'd use Carrera, Hexagon, or Shade. Poser isn't really made for modelling, more for human figures which it excels at.

Well I'm strictly a DAZ Studio 1.8 user myself although I do also have Poser7 eventhough I just use it for the content [I haven't gotten the hang of operating Poser yet]. Like Winter said, Daz 3D and Renderosity are great sites to acquire free content. But if you are serious about 3D I would suggest you join the Platunum Club at Daz. You get a year's membership for $100 and receive great discounts on top selling 3D stuff [as low as $0.89 during the sale they have going on now]. You can also try Animotions, they have a great download section with tons of stuff, the majority being for superheroes. Content Paradise also offers some cool freebies as well

Well like I said I want to do stuff kinda of like ToxicAngel but am unsure what to do render the body and postwork it? Or do I use props and the body? I tried to read the manual on the poser CD but it reads like a VCR manual LOL. I just wondered if theres a start to finish type tutorial somewhere of poser/photoshop figure art I guess is what you'd call it???

ToxicAngel uses several different techniques. Some of his stuff is 90% painted, others are about 50/50 painted/rendered. If you are just starting out, I'd try putting as much into the render as you can, so you have a digger base to work from when painting.

I can't add much else to this topic, its already been covered.

As to myself, I would love to learn Photoshop more, since postworked images can make an image look much better.

However, that requires actual artistic skill (and that's the entire reason I use Poser; because I have a creative urge but no skill at drawing :) ).

There is a lot more to being an artist than the ability to create on paper what you see in your head. Some people are great at drawing, but have no artistic sense whatsoever. Don't feel bad about yourself, feel bad for them. The will never know the sometimes painful joy of sudden inspiration, or the driving passion that makes you forget to eat and sleep.

Poser takes a long time to learn to be proficient at. Most every old Poser figure or prop will work in Poser 7 (at least Poser 3-7). Hints. Download all the free stuff that you can find that you might possibly use (Renderosity, Renderotica, Content Paradise, DAZ3D, Poser World, Poser Pros, Runtime DNA [the list goes on]). Pose using the dials, don't try to tug on body parts. If you want to do hero stuff, download the characters you find at places like Heromorph and Animotions (I have a few things at my site). Warning: Poser is always hungry and likes it when you spend money on figures, props and environments.

As for an Archer pose, which figure do you need the pose for? What works for one figure, say James or P4 Dork, may not work for Michael.

I have Poser 7 and even Carrara 6 Pro. But I find myself using Daz Studio more and more. I just can't seem to get the hang of the other two. I am trying, though.

I have to say that I like Poser's renders a lot more than Daz Studio's.

That's not entirely true. More or less it's the other way around that you have problems. Not every pose designed for one particular character will work for another but most times it comes so close that just a push or pull this way or that will get the results you want.
As for your problem Hub. If you indeed have Poser content there is a pose that may help you along the path to acheiving what you want. Follow this path...Poses/Poser 1-5/Sculpture Sets, use the Hercules Archer pose. This is pretty good for an archery scene...his lower torso and legs are bent different than what you like but it'll be easier posing them for you than adjusting the upper arms and hands. It'll work well with M3.
