Just a small update to keep the page somewhat alive.
I have decided that some of my old stuff should be updated - either by just uploading higher resolution previews (600x600 used to be the standard size back when I started selling my models), or by updating the geometry (small modifications in some cases and complete remakes in others) along with materials and preview renders.
You can have a look at the first two updated models: Sennheiser HD25 and HD202 headphones.
And a few new food models:
Hey, just a quick update: I've uploaded the interior version of the first teardrop trailer model. Have a look:
Been a while since the last update, but you know me - I'm a slow modeler.
In any case, finished up on the exterior version of the first of 4 teardrop trailers. Why exterior? - you might ask, well, because the plan is to model a version with interior before moving on to teardrop trailer nr.2.
So here it is:
Just finished my 4th inflatable boat model and packed it with the previous three into a collection of 4. Check them out:
I have decided to get out of the3dstudio.com as the site was basically dead since they "upgraded" it to be a Gentle Giant figurine shop primarily and 3D models where pushed into the background as an add on.
What I've discovered immediately, though, was that the owners decided to get rid of the artist's right to delete his/her models from the site; only the options to edit/disable items were left.
"Not a problem", I figured, "will just delete the archives with model data, upload empty ones and then disable the products". Keep dreaming. The "upgrade" is so broken that it's not possible to add any new files to existing products: you upload something new (archives or images) and then can't do anything with the files, the only option is to click "save" after which the new data disapears.
Not only that, but new and improved version of the3dstudio.com only allows 7 preview images for each product, so there is no way to show detailed images of most of the models, let alone to show all of the models included in a collection (i.e. of 20 house models). Useless preview system.
Also, they did not bother to get rid of the "quantity" selection button for 3D models, as if anyone would buy multiple copies of the same model. It's just there to further confuse the people who are unable to understand that 3D model is not a real item.
The other thing I found out today, when some guy finally responded to my emails, is that they will not be paying royalties via PayPal (has a bit over $30 unpaid, which I will never receive now). Who cares that you have to enter your PayPal email in the "Profile Information" page, right? The geniuses decided, that in 2015 it's better to use good old checks for payments (costs ~$20 to cash) or some ACH system of which I've never even heard about in my life.
What I'm trying to say here is: get out of the garbage site as fast as you can and do not shop there under any circumstances.
My name is Ričardas Marozas, but I am better known in the digital world as 'Pumper' or 'rmpumper'.
I became interested in 3D modelling after seeing the first trailer for the game Mafia. It was so cool to see a realistic virtual city that I decided to create virtual worlds myself, but soon realized that it's not as easy as it might seem for someone without experience in the field. As a result I had to abandon the idea of creating virtual worlds of my own and moved on to making only separate elements of one instead.
I have published my first model on TurboSquid back in 2004 and have been making and selling 3D models ever since.
In order to sometimes take a break from 3D modeling but keep working on something I started producing After Effects project templates in 2013. Sadly, ran out of ideas and skills in the area quite fast.
Thank you for visiting my simple page.
