I started up my shop and designing items yesterday (yes, I work fast- only 1 model was from a previous project I did)

I'd like to know, honestly and truthfully what people think of the stuff I have made so far- the quality, the sizes, And various tips on bettering future uploads. I am restricted in what I can use (Wings 3d and Blender), due to financial constraints, so please keep those 2 programs in mind.

My shop is:

I'll check back every so often and take all constructive criticism and work as best I can with it. Smile

Welcome fellow starving artist Smile

Your models look cool ! Although I guess they are solid ?
If so, hollowing out cheapen things up (mind material specific wall-thicknesses though)

Other than that, pick your own favorite and order it, there is nothing comparable to holding your own digital designs in your hands, to get a good feel for the possibilities !

Looking forward to see more of your work !

Cheers,

Stijn

Yeah, they look very solid. (by the price)


I would get some good renders (and real photos of the ones you really like) and maybe spruce up the shop a tad. Add a banner, logo, description etc.

Need help hollowing objects? I know there are a bunch of tutorials on it and I can try to help a little. I use Alibre, so if you can export STP/STEP or IGES/IGS I can probably do something.

Otherwise, Good luck!
