My Bio

UPDATE 2020: AS of 2020, I am disabling all model downloads as people continue to misuse my work and disregard the rules. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I hope those that do have the model data do not redistribute it, and respect my wishes for the work I've created.

RULES:

-No edit

-No Redistribution

-No taking parts from the model

-No taking texture maps from the model

- No 'trading' the model

- MMD only

- Must remain as it's intended initial character at all times.

- No Derivative Works

- No R18+ / NSFW Useage of my models or associated data or imagery

- You are not allowed to use as your own OC. This includes renaming, or any kind of editing.

- Do not import into Other Softwares (Blender, VR Chat, Vroid, FaceRig, and all softwares other than MMD are NOT PERMITTED)

I am heartbroken that I even have to state these things or beg others to respect my work, as it should be fairly obvious that my models are meant to be unique individual pieces, most of which are PAID COMMISSION WORK, and that editing the model data is disrespectful to me as the artist, and to the client that paid for the work.

Please encourage others to be kind and respectful. And Please understand that 3D modeling should be treated with the same respect that Illustration and other artworks are given - not to be edited, stolen, recolored, altered or turned into derivatives. Thank you for your time, and I hope everyone can go on to have a good time despite 2020's difficult challenges.

If you have any questions about HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN 3D MODELS, or about rules of my work please check out my FAQ journal!

An amateur 3D model artist!


Hello, I am known as PolygonCount. I am a North american 3D modeling artist who creates models for use in MMD.I model in the program Metasequoia ver 3.16 and do my textures in Photoshop. Im always experimenting and trying to make newer and better models as I keep working.

Most of the work in my gallery are personal or commissioned models.


Lately I have been prone to reoccurring wrist pain, caused by working for prolonged hours of the day on models, or artwork. As such, my activity can be rather slow at times and commissions are often closed.

If you are interested in a commission, please keep an eye out on my Journals, as I always post one if I'm going to take commissions!

LMAO you would be totally fucked as of 2021 as EMM would let people rip anything you make. Making avatars as a business is officially done, and I'm kind of glad as it was a weird status thing for a long ass time.

Why can't people just follow the rules? Then developer won't have to take down the download links! I think people just ruins the experience for other people, so they can just laugh in our faces for not getting the models in time.

YOUR A SELFISH MOTHERFUCKER YOU DONT HAVE A COPYRIGHT SO YOU DONT OWN SHIT ; CHOKE ON YOUR OWN SHIT

Never claimed to own copyrighted material.

Meanwhile your main Meebo5000 account sure does have a lot of illegal model rips that blatantly go against any Video Game software's ToS.


On a side note, you will get E. Coli if you eat that and that's a very serious health risk. Please do not eat shit.

im not weebos dumb fuck nothing to do with that guy i was just sticking up for him because you came across as a whiny bitch !

uh...who's being the whiny bich? ...dude lol

I'm just suspending downloads of old models because people won't follow rules.

It's my work and I can suspend the download I choose to host at any time. It's not hurting you or anyone or anything. It's all just old polygons I spent weeks putting together nearly half a decade ago.


If you would take the time to read over my information and get yourself some context as to why, you would likely realize I'm not being just a whiny bitch. But trying to mitigate damage to private commission work, and exercising my rights as a creator.


Original models were paid for, Private commissions with real world money transactions paying for an artistic service.

The fact any Commissioned Model Data was publicly distributed at all was merely a courtesy to encourage creative works utilizing the character per the client's request. To alter it is disrespectful to the original paying client, and my rules.

People altered it. Multiple times over the past 3-5 Years. So I Pulled the downloads, as my readme files sent with the model data stated I would.

Licensed character models like VOCALOID Cyber Songman were freely distributed as derivative fan-work. Distributed freely, no money involved. If you know even a shred of anything about VOCALOID you would understand that the software developers and copyright holders of the character actively ENCOURAGE derivative fanworks to promote their own software.

If you dig into my old Commission ToS it states I would not create Fanart / Copyrighted characters on Commission due to grey area of copyright.


In the end it's old, outdated stuff that self-entitled teenagers in MMD would tear apart against my rules for I set for my own original content.

Not sure that merited as many comments as you went out of your way to make, is all.
