Questions about Ren'Py should go in the Ren'Py Questions and Announcements forum.
I have heard that you can make(render) graphics using DAZ3D.
I have never done anything like that before. Daz3D sell pre-made clothes and bodies etc
If I were to purchase some of those items how much should I expect to pay someone to put it together for me
or is this something that I who have no training and no knowledge could do myself.
If I am not asking the right question please Excuse me, I am very new too this and I am not even sure what I should be asking.
If you already have DAZ, you can download the free interactive lesson "Slaying the Dragon" bundle Link ->https://www.daz3d.com/slaying-the-dragon-bundle.
It includes characters and clothing and takes you step by step through the process of building a scene and rendering it.
Having said that, if your intention is to make a visual novel (versus a graphic novel), many people won't play a visual novel made with 3D graphics, unless the pictures are edited to the point where they look like they were hand-drawn. Examples of what I mean are works by donmai. Search the lemmasoft forums for examples of 3D images he's made to resemble hand-made drawings.
Some people might not read your post because it has the words "3D Graphics" in the subject.
I wish you success.

Let's add some lights, enable shadows, and render again. Not bad. There are still some very visible imperfections that could be removed with some postwork. Personally, I never look at a newly rendered image as an end product, but only as a starting point to get to the final image.
If you feel confident enough to edit the surface properties of the models or experiment with different surface shaders, you can achieve some very interesting effects. The following image shows the same scene rendered after applying the Manga Style shader, available in the DAZ Store. As I said, creating images with 3D software is not exactly easier than using traditional art. The learning curve isn't short and you will need to know how to deal with light, shadows, colors, atmospherics, anatomy, composition... Gee, that reminds me I still have so much to learn...
People who are wanting to experiment with 3d software should not feel discouraged by what I am saying. What I'm really trying to say is that 3D is not a way to create good images easily. It requires some study, dedication, and work, just like any other art.
