    Would anyone be interested, my 3D modelling skills are basic so thought I could do a daily model to exercise those skills.

    For example I modelled this today...

    [​IMG]

    It's basic but does look like a USB key.

    The Creative Commons License applies, you can use it but not resell them and must provide credits to me.

    Just drop your request on this thread and if selected I will try make a 3d model of it, and post a render on here.

    And what would you think about joining a team?
    You could improve your skills, work on your pace and even be part of a dev team.

    See project on my signature link.
    Let me know anything.

    Thank You,
    Sincerely,
    S.Siffel

    Thank you but I'm already working on my own games, this is just to improve my 3D modelling skills, and something I quite enjoy.

    Yes and Yes.

    I will have a go at all requests but I work on 1 model a day and it's a strict queueing system.

    See top post for current queue status.

    Please ensure you provide enough style info to get what you want in your request.

    Okies. Just so you have something to do.

    This is a small request and should give you some play time.

    Simple request for a Anime style character wearing a leather jacket and blue jeans. Keynotes are the big head, big eyes. It needs to be about 700 to 1k polygons. and should deform pretty smoothly. No facial expressions. The eyes, nose and mouth are painted on. He needs his index finger free, but the other should be combined, but deformable where he could hold a weapon.

    His hair is to be punkish and detachable. Other hair pieces will be crafted to fit on him. It should be no more than 100 polygons if possible.

    He needs to be UV'd, but not textured. His texture is square. His hair needs a seperate texture, but it will need a square texture as well.

    You do not need to texture anything. If it is acceptable, i will just simply rig it, texture it and give it to the community. It really is practice.

    Hints: Pay attention to the flow of faces on the joints. Try to make the UV's fit the same texture scale.

    I would like a viewing of your skills, I am a developer with Star Travel Gaming. I would like to see if you can create a bunker model. Basically just a foxhole with a roof and sandbag protection.

    The blender file is the Free 3D modelling package I use, all you need is the FBX file and the UV Texture Map.

    You should draw your own textures over the texture map, if you have Photoshop or GIMP and use layers you will be able to make it look much better paint on the colours and features you want.

    There are loads of good tutorials online about all aspects of blender, but loads to learn, I'm only just starting out. The trick is to just have a play with it and save often! ;)

    Anime Style Character, I've even had a go at painting the character.

    Original request sketch
    [​IMG]

    Final model
    [​IMG]

    Zipped Files: Blender, FBX, UV Textures.

    Hair 188 verts, 150 tris in unity.
    Body 1156 verts, 1456 tris in unity. (ouch that's way more than in Blender)

    The body is 405 faces in blender but I'm using mirror mode and most are quads so not too bad but a little bit over budget.

    Let me know how it rigs and animates.

    So far i like the design, the triangle count is a bit high as you specified, but overall a great job.

    First free Logos and now this? Arowx, you need a Tip Jar =P

    If you are willing to do organic modelling, a Pikachu model would be appreciated.

    Haha, how about a generic "space rock" for a different project then. Something that could double as a tiny asteroid or a rock on a moon, etc...

    hey, i would like a pistol - simplistic, a rifle - simplistic, and a machine gun, all simplistic, but you don't have to do all 3, if you have time, did all 3, you can do different models of those 3 types :3. the more the merrier, i don't expect it though, it would be nice.

    Hey can you do a stack of cash, not that thick?
    could also use a building that reads store in the front, would love a door that has a parent object on the side for a hinge effect.
