|Looking for somebody to do Robotech/Macross Designs [message #86548] Fri, 21 March 2014 21:28 UTC
I am looking for somebody who can do 3D models of existing Robotech/Macross stuff, FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY. I understand the whole copyright thing and these will only be used by myself and never be sold anywhere.|
Basically, there are a lot of various Robotech/Macross mecha that have never been fully fleshed out. Most of the fighters sure, but not many others. Robotech RPG Tactics is due out soon, and I was a big investor, but that was 1 part of many of the Robotech franchise.
So I was looking to see if somebody could take various designs of ships, mecha, etc, most of which have 2D art in a single view, but most not detailed out a lot. Most don't have a lot of fine details and that is cool, and won't matter with a 1-2" 3d printed unit anyway.
I'm not real sure what I should pay for these, as I haven't hired a 3D modeler before, but I'm sure we can come to some agreement. I'm thinking whatever value would be like 20% up front, 50% once the model is completed, and the rest once it is 3D printed successfully, but that is open for discussion.
So, let me know if you can do it, want to do it, and what you would charge per model.
Texturing would be a plus as well, as I'm a decent developer and if I had all these models, I could write up some simple games as well. The ability to have things like animations (usually transformations) and damaged textures would be even more useful, and of course I'd pay more for them.
With reasonable rates, and pretty quick turn around, we could go into the Centurion/Renegade Legion, Battletech, Rifts, and other universes as well.
I'm just tired of waiting for somebody else to do it :(

Thanks, also, just FYI since I've had a few people ask, this would be a typical model I'd want made:|
Not all would be 3 modes, but they should be much of the same model. Not a huge amount of surface detail, just proper shapes and the minor surface details. Textures in most cases would be quite simple if applicable.
Any understanding of what you are making would help a bit, as like the pic above, many I may only have 1-2 images of and not full coverage.
All would be in 1/285 scale exactly, so none real big.
Here is an example of 4 printed models in this scale of varying quality:
I may have to find a super simple one and give it to a few of ya'll to see who I go with.
I'g guess there would be 50, and probably no more than 100, total models that I'd need done, over the period of potentially a couple years, It could grow, but I'd want somebody who can also commit to that so the styles don't change.
