:bulletblue: :bulletgreen: :bulletred:

Welcome to The3DSociety!

:bulletred: :bulletgreen: :bulletblue:
My god has it been a while since I last published a journal so today, I decided to get around to it. I didn't disappear of the face of the earth, I was always monitering the activity of this group and other big 3D groups and to be honest, not a lot has happened really, wouldn't you agree? Well I'd like to tell you about some news in this journal right now!

At the moment, there are currently no 3D competitions being held in the deviantart community or outside of the community (as far as I know, but if I'm wrong, please comment), but 3D-Artists I believe are planning a competition at the moment and as soon as it goes live, I'll be sure to inform you. Otherwise, I'll keep updating this journal as news comes in.

Comment on this journal if you're still alive and 3Ding!

A note from Cymae:

Several individuals and 3D groups here on DeviantArt have tried to launch their own chats, which have met with various degrees of success, staying active for a while then dying.

Currently, there really aren't any active chatroom where you can discuss and get help on 3D work.

That's why The 3D Chat has been created.

This chatroom doesn't advertise any specific groups, and will hopefully become a hub for all 3D artists, and use members from many different groups to administrate and keep it active.

Loaded up the top are various useful articles, tutorials and resources so that you can still get help and inspiration even when there's nobody else there.

We're also looking to add mentors, experienced 3D artists willing to give critique and advice in real time chat!

Cymae's looking for some active people willing to join in the chat and help moderate it.

Come have a look!

! --- FREE ART FOR ALL --- !

COMMISSIONS OPEN!INDEXSlots / Places AvailableCommission TypesRequesting Commissions and payment methodsLimitationsTerms Of Service (TOS)Delivery / Production timeQuestions and answers (FAQ)1. Slots / Places AvailableCurrently, I can offer my services to 2 people. The first to arrive will be served first. I will be giving discounts for the first two.FREE: Put your name here (8% discount)FREE: Put your name here (5% discount)This topic will be kept up to date over time. Therefore, if you are interested in knowing when spaces will be available, feel free to note me or send an email to, or simply leave a comment here. As soon as a vacancy becomes available I will send you a notification.2. Commission TypesAs a 3D digital artist, I can offer different types of services to meet more specific or diverse needs. For example, like other artists, I can produce images of scenes with characters, but I can as well create 3D models to be used in games, for 3D printing, etc. You can customize your order, and get interesting discounts depending on your choice. The following table shows the services I offer, and their respective prices (I only work with US dollars).OBS 1: When I say Human, characters with any humanoid appearance are included.For the first service offered (ID 1), you will receive not only one, but many HD images (it can be 3, 5, 10, 15, but no more than 20) taken from different angles, and without adding anything to the final price. The final resolution of the image can have the desired aspect ratio (any width and height), but no greater than 4000 pixels in height or width.So, for example, if you want a scene to be created with a full-body human character, the price to be paid will only be $ 35, and you will receive several images (files) of the created scene. If you want to get the 3D files (obj, fbx, etc.) to open in a 3D program, then the amount will be added with another $ 35. In this case, you will get an 18% discount (see the discount table), and the final price will be $ 57.40 (35+35=70, 18% of 70=12.6, 70-12.6=57.40).If you want an image of a scene with some kind of background:Discounts types (for further clarification, see the Question and answers FAQ topic):If you want some kind of exclusivity when receiving the content produced by me. This type of feature is completely optional (that is, if you want me to not post anything publicly):3. Requesting Commissions and payment methodsThe process itself can be summarized in the following steps:Send me a Note, or email to with the desired commission information. Please try to leave the title with the name Commission.All the work that will be done by me will take into account what is written in the Note or email content, therefore, the present content must specify exactly what will be done, and which character will be created. Ideally (as this will make my job easier), the content should contain images of references that demonstrate the result expected by you, the customer. The more references, the easier and faster I can complete your project.With the request/order sent, I must give a reply saying whether or not I accept the job. If I accept, I'll immediately send you a payment link with a invoice. Payment will be mediated through the PayPal platform, but you can pay either with a PayPal account, or just with a credit/debit card (no need for a PayPal account if you don't want to or don't have one). Please do not send me a payment, instead I will be sending you an invoice. Every day I check my email and enter my DeviantArt page. I will work with commissions as I receive them, that is, commissions with older dates will have priority to be accepted first.If you have any questions, you can add a comment here, send an email to , or just send me a Note.4. LimitationsDue to current hardware limitations, I can only create scenes with a maximum of 3 to 4 creatures, or 2 to 3 full-body humans. Likewise, open world scenes, or very complex ones cannot be produced. I am planning to improve my workstation, aiming to produce better, faster, and bigger works. Also:Arts I do only for triple the price:NSFW / Sex / Porn / Nude / suggestive sexual, mature, lewd, fetish contentArts I do not do in any way:Mecha / MechRealismExtreme violenceOvercomplicated/Complex armorsOvercomplicated/Complex clothesAny idea of racial, religious, political offense or discrimination, or anything that disrespects an individual's citizenshipOBS: For items listed at triple the price (above), I will in NO way involve minors.5. Terms Of Service (TOS)Submitting a commission request means that you have read and agreed to the following:All prices listed are in USD and must be payed through PayPal. You do not necessarily need to have a PayPal account. Please do not send me payment directly, I'll send you an invoice.Full payment must be made before I start to work on your project.If you want to cancel your project after payment has been made, and before I start working on it, I can make you a 80% refund of the original amount agreed.If you want to cancel your project after payment has been made, and I have already started working on it, no refunds will be made.I undertake to exchange progress images of your project, so that you can keep track of the work being done, and that it remains as desired, described mainly in the commission request.Making changes, or adding new elements to your project that have not been requested in the original commission request, can be done with or without the need to pay an additional amount, something that will depend entirely on the complexity of what will be added / changed, as well as my schedule.I reserve the right to publicly post any artwork created by me on commission requests. Except only with the Payment for Exclusivity.I reserve the right to refuse any commission requests before they are accepted, but I undertake to provide justification.6. Delivery / Production timeThe average time for the production of any 3D model varies greatly between each case. Sometimes it may take less time, sometimes more. It does not usually take the maximum estimated time.For the values seen with the + sign in front, it will first be necessary to produce the model first, which will take the respective time to complete. Once ready, the days after the + sign will be added. For cases where a 3D model is already ready / finished / completed, and it is only required to obtain its files, this will certainly not take more than a day.7. Questions and answers (FAQ)01 - Do you only make Pokemons or Pokemon related art/commissions?No! I do any art commissions related to any anime, manga and/or cartoons (like Disney, for example). In the future I will be open to make art related to comics, like DC and Marvel and etc.For creatures, I make any type of creature, as long as it is not overly complex, just like in Pokemon series, for example.02 - Do I need to have a Paypal account to make the payment?No. Paypal is just the platform (vehicle / medium) used for money transfer. You can pay with a credit or a debit card. You can also pay with a Paypal account, if you have one, or know someone who does. It is up to you to decide.03 - Why NSFW arts, porn, etc. have triple the price? And why you do it? Look at my gallery for example, or my other social medias. The idea of my work is to produce something that can be seen by any type of person, and/or that brings joy to everyone's life. This type of content could not be displayed publicly in my gallery, and honestly, it is not something I like. However, if it returns some good financial value, I am willing to do it.04 - Why do you charge for exclusivity?Every art I post on the internet gives me some kind of feedback. To create a art and not showing it hinders my career development. As a way to compensate for this and allow exclusivity for anyone who wants to, I do charge an additional fee. I must remind you that this feature is optional, and should be of interest only to those who want to obtain some kind of exclusivity.05 - What is the difference between a simple creature and a creature?I consider simple creatures to be those who:Do not have many geometric shapesDo not have complex geometric shapesDo not have paintings, and if they do, they are not complexHave no hair, and if they do, they are very fewThis factor must be taken into account, as it creates a big difference when modeling and delivering the final result. Depending on the type of creature, I can complete it in a single day.Taking Pokemons as an example, here is a brief list of Pokemons that I consider to be simple creatures:Azurill, Oddish, Diglett, Poliwag, Bellsprout, Ditto, Igglybuff, Seedot, Trapinch, WeedleVoltorb, Luvdisc, Solosis,06 - Can I request a character with more than one outfit?Yes you can, but an additional amount will be charged, which will depend a lot on the clothes that will be made.07 - How many images will I get with the first service (ID 1), and what will each look like?In short, imagine that we create a scene, and we freeze it in time. With the scene frozen, we can take several pictures of it, and from different angles. Taking photos from different angles will not alter the value of the final price to be paid. This is one of the wonders of working with 3D art. In addition, the entire rendering process will be the same, that is, each rendering made will have the same final quality. You can request any desired number of images from the same scene, but with a limit of up to a maximum of 20.08 - If I ask for the production of a 3D background (ID 8), can I reuse it with other characters?Of course! You can reuse a 3D background in previous projects that I have done with you. In this case, I will not charge you any additional fees for using the 3D background. This type of option is very useful when you want to add more characters to the scene, or to change one that has already been present. This is another one of the wonders of the 3D world!Also, you can use 3D backgrounds from other commissions requested by other people, but in this case you will have to pay for the use of the 3D background, and the amount will remain the same.For additional questions, please leave a comment, send me a Note, or send an email to . As soon as I can I will be answering you. Some good news and the next projectINTROHey guys! I hope you all had a great week! After 4 months using DeviantArt, I was able to see and meet amazing people here. People with fantastic talents in the most diverse areas. But beyond that, I was able to meet people who believe in my work and me. I can only thank you for how important you all have been in my life. Thank you! You know, every day Iím producing something to share with you. Like any other artist, I always try to challenge myself, expose my skills, and at the same time create things that are interesting. But more than that, my main goal is to be able to bring something that brings a moment of joy, peace or inspiration. My intention is to be able to add something good, positive to everyone.A NEW PROJECTAlthough I am often out of time due to work, I would like to be able to repay a little bit of the support I receive. Iím thinking of making a new scene (like any other project that I have already put in my gallery) based on your opinion/idea.The goal is to make a kind of popular vote so that the next project that I will do is chosen by you all. Everyone can collaborate by giving an idea. If you've always wanted to see a scene with a character or something, that's your moment! This is more than ideal space to do this.In order for it to work properly without ending up in a mess, and so that the voting lasts long enough for it to be fair, I will be defining some rules:I will be putting a featured comment on this post. In this comment you can give ideas for the next project that will be done. Ideas for the next project will be accepted only if given in this featured comment.If you liked the idea given by another user/person, please leave a like in the comment for the given idea.If you want to comment something that is not an idea, make your comment out of my featured comment. If you comment on anything other than an idea in the featured comment, your comment will be deleted. Please do not take this as a rude attitude, but only as a way of keeping everything well organized.You can give as many ideas as you want! Don't be afraid to express your creativity and add ideas, as this will not be seen as spam. However, please try not to give ideas that are too similar, okay? Before giving one, try to keep in mind exactly the scene you want to see.The voting will end when I reach 200 watchers.Don't be afraid to ask a friend to vote on your idea. I even encourage you to do that.At the end, the idea comment with the most likes will be chosen for the next project.THE FINAL RESULTRegarding what can or cannot be done for the next project, I will be able to create a scene with up to a maximum of 2 characters, and a 3D scenario if desired (it can also be just one character, or no 3D background, but that is up to you). Everything must be chosen and defined by you. The position of the characters, their faces, clothes, the background with their elements, etc., all of this should be chosen by you.When the next project is chosen, during its production I will be placing here in my gallery the WIP images for everyone to follow the development, as this will not be my project, but ours. In the end, I will produce maybe not one, but some high resolution images and at different angles of the created scene. You can use them as wallpaper on your computer, on your cell phone, or as and where you want. The images will belong to everyone. The only thing I will be doing is placing my signature, but it will be put in a way that does not hinder the vision of what has been done.The characters that will be created can come from any anime, cartoons, games, Original Characters (OC), characters fusions, and so on. They just need to exist (I need images as references to work).LIMITATIONSUnfortunately, I can't do everything, so there are certain limits. If your idea is something that goes beyond my abilities or my computer's ability to render polygons, I'm sorry, but I will not consider it, even if it is good and I think it is phenomenal, or that it ends up with many votes.Additionally, I will not be producing any NSFW, pornographic, nudity, fetish, extreme violence, mecha / mech work. Likewise, I will not be able to produce anything that goes out of my art style, for example, something super realistic.MORE GOOD NEWSAnyone who has known me for some time knows that, in addition to showing my work, I also offer courses, tutorials, and videos (on my Youtube channel and in my gallery), all for those who are curious or interested in working with 3D digital art. I not only expose my art, but I also show the step by step.A great news for anyone who wants to obtain any of my materials is that the prices of my online store on Gumroad are all being revised, and will drop dramatically, offering much more access. My 3D Fanart Production Course, for example, had its price cut in half (Misty's, remember?). Other previous contents has been removed to be redesigned with new prices, and will be re added shortly. In addition, my future projects will also be in my store following the same price line, always in a more accessible way.Another interesting news is that my Commissions Page has been updated. Now it is a little more organized and less bureaucratic, without 2 types of optional charges. In addition, the commission delivery estimate is also slightly faster, providing greater satisfaction for those who want to get their orders faster.Before today ends (22, August, 2020) or, at the latest tomorrow (23, August, 2020), I will be posting new content! You will find news here on my DeviantArt page, on my Instagram, on my Ko-fi, on my Gumroad page, and on my Youtube channel.I'm very happy to be able to bring you new and interesting content. I wish you all a great weekend, and may all the best happen in your life. Thank you!...
