I honestly don't know a thing about Daz3D. But, if it's got decent modelling tools and some sculpting tools, you could theoretically do this. But, I know that if you want to get your head into 3D for free, Blender is an insanely powerful (often frowned upon) program, which I think you'd benefit more from learning.
Been spending time today making some Alphas, since the whole "random Squiggly Lines" approach is a helluvalot reduntant, and not giving the visual 'pow' this character deserves.
So, Here´s a test (I know I have to fix the 0 position of them, but I'm too lazy to do it now).
I have more alphas to do though, but, I am having fun with it
