View Full Version : Volunteer for 3d modeling
01-26-2010, 05:35 AM
Well I'm not 3d artist. Just asking if anyone want to create model for creature or art for GD, would the dev accept it?
A 3d model could cost $2000-$3000. If somebody suddenly want to submit his boss model, i think that could be awesome.

As awesome as that would be for somebody like me (an aspiring game artist/designer)... hm... I'm not sure if that would ever happen.

We contract with people to produce art for us and even have some people working on a voluntary basis (with the idea that they'll eventually be compensated with a cut of royalty earnings - which is also what I work for since I can't afford to pay myself wages), so really this wouldn't be much different.
The problem is that models need to be build to certain specifications, match our visual style, fit into the game fiction, and meet a certain level of quality.
If someone has the level of talent and expertise necessary to make a character model of high enough quality that we'd want to use it, chances are they're already a professional 3d artist. But hey, you never know.

True. All art should be consistent with the concept, visual style. Only then GD could emerge as a big series in the future. Like how Metzen handle all the concept, visual, art and lore or Warcraft universe.
Yep, you never know :) maybe there are professional 3d artist among us.

One problem with volunteer work from the community is that even if you set up all the contracts and whatnot, you'll run a risk of people contributing copyrighted stuff, and even if you have all the disclaimers in order you will end up in a bit of a pickle and not to mention a bad light.
I've studied animation for a couple of years but it wouldn't be right of me to even suggest that I could contribute, as it wouldn't be feasable unless I committed a large amount of time to it. Hopefully my cash is enough for now!
