WillowRaven's latest model/product requests: A dragon sword (offering compensation)
*EDIT: It came to my attention that some believe if an item is made according to my specs, that I hold ownership of said product. I state here now, any prop, figure, character, pose, or texture created for me, by request in this forum, whether I pay to have it created or whether it is given freely, the CREATOR of the item retains ownership. I am only ever asking for usage rights. I am an artist myself and rarely sign over ownership rights and I don't expect anyone else to, either. Feel free to sell or give away anything I ask to be made unless I specifically request otherwise in advance. And trust me, I will charge the author or publisher for those ownership rights on your behalf and make sure you get paid handsomely. Back to the thread ...
Since I am forever asking for some special object or model for the books I illustrate and create covers for, and we are all starting fresh in the forum anyway, I figured I'd create one thread for them all, which would kill several birds with one stone.
One bird: I can have one place to easily find the people that have done for me before or wish to be added to my "I bow to DAZ modelers" list.
Second bird: I can show those samplers what they are helping me to create (showing off the characters &/or settings and then the finalized book cover or illustration) , since so many of them do this for free, although I have always offered to pay.
Third bird: I won't be filling up the forum with multiple requests just because they are for different projects.
Fourth bird: I have noticed my requests turn into learning ground for many of the co-modelers. I don't want them to feel they have to go all private if info in being shared for the betterment of other, just because it happens to be for a request I made. So, having a thread that they can discover new techniques in about the stuff I request may be easier to follow if I only have one of them.
Fifth and major bird: I won't forget where my crap is ... lol.
Hopefully this will work. Maybe someone who knows more about how for forums work can tell me when a fresh thread needs started and how I go about doing that ... lol.
I am so glad the forums are back!
Having said all of that, the projects people were working on for me when the forums went down look great. Luckily, a couple of you already had my email and could continue to work with me while we were on the dark side of the moon.
I'd like to show those now and thank everybody who helped, even if I didn't get to use your particular version this time around (there tend to be several really cool interpretations to my requests). I do keep them all for future projects, though. I may still have to tweak positioning of the dragonfly, at at the distance it will be, it may not matter. Knowing me, I'll still do it ... lol.
