hello, i have looked all over the internet, and quite a few conventions, but i have yet to find some of the things i am looking for, and i tried to create them myself with blender and z-brush and such, but i always get stuck at uv mapping, plus i want the amazing quality i see on the shop and such, so does anyone know someone or a website that takes commissions?——-p.s i may as well show some of the things i am trying to get, maybe someone knows of there location already—and yes i am a LotR fan.  i can’t help it. i obviously would use these for personal projects only, so no copyright problems.  also, i have never bought commissions before, i don’t really know the process, or usual price.—-thank you.

Might want to ask the mods to move this to the Commons where similar requests are made from time to time.

Yes, making copyrighted items for others for $ is most certainly a potential copyright problem.

Costs vary per artist.

You might very well find some free fanart items too. Or be able to ‘re-texture’ some of the Daz3d products to fill the bill.

I’m still searching for the armor, but on my way, I found this: http://www.sharecg.com/v/21642/related/11/Poser/Scrum-Base It lo.oks like a decent base for Gollum/Smeagol.

I gathered a few best items from the shop.

Noved123, it looks like DAZ apparently loves you and made a sale just for you: http://www.daz3d.com/armor-sale smile. I suppose there can be something for you. And considering how Genesis works, you should be able to conform some of them to you desired dwarf figure.

PS Could you be so kind and show us your renders with the results please? That would be cool. Should you find some thief stuff too, like Faramir’s outfit, I’d be eternally grateful for sending me a PM.

.

I donĀ“t see any sale. All items on the “Armor Sale” page except for DAZ originals (which have the usual 30% off for PC members) are full price.

this is what i mean, right here in this video go full screen and look closely. it is the mithril plate armor of durins folk/  (yes i have in depth tolkien knowledge, i wrote some of the wiki pages actually)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9REykZfdxc 

(i bought some stuff during that sale, thank you for alerting me there. its a good thing i had the thread set to email alerts.  here is a quick picture with something i bought . its cool, but not quite dwarfy enough.  sorry about hand clipping, and wrong materials on the steel, did not realize till posting.)

My pleasure! I’m glad if you found anything nice. Regarding mithril armor, you might want to try Supreme Armor for M4/H4/F4/Elite/Marv, Lord of Darkness Armor for M4 (it has some useful parts) or DreamQuest Armor for V4 - if you manage to conform the shoulder plates that come with DreamQuest Armor for V4, you’ll be set too.
