MakeHuman is a completely free, open source; innovative and professional software for the modelling of 3-Dimensional humanoid characters.
Open source software is software where the source code (the language programmers use to make computers do their jobs) is available to everyone. Anyone can see how the code works and can change it if they want to make it work differently. The opposite of open source is closed source, where the source is not available to everyone.
Open Source is better than Freeware, because freeware is closed source, and can be easily moved to commercial software, Open Source software will be free forever.
I use Photoscape, also free, and their PNG based directory to paste ready to add characters on book covers.
Some book covers I created using PNG characters
When I began I also used characters from PixAbay.com which has thousands of pre-built characters you can use royalty free. But what if you need a certain clothing style? Or pose? With this software you can create characters or modify existing characters and then render them. By using Photoscape’s PNG feature I can then add them directly to my book covers with a few clicks. I can also browse through all of the characters I have created easily with Photoscape.
