Who is that Guy and What is he doing Over there?

This is suppose to be 3D model of a Sword.
“Swords” is the endless theme for content criticism. To make such a sword what you need is to know how to create a cylinder/sphere/box, and how to use ‘extrude’ and ‘bend’ modifiers. And obveously you have to have standard Poser library to export the guy who will later be used to spruce up sword’s blade. Anyways, all together is for $30.

Idea: Maybe it’s time to develop a software similar to FaceGen which generates swords?

3D Model of a Woman with possible Down Syndrome

This model is available at two stores: Turbosquid and The3DStudio. Prices are varying from ‘$0.00’ (left image) at The3DStudio to ‘$30.00’ (right image) at Turbosquid.

Comparing two items I came to conclusion that this character has nothing to hide even been nude, so black stripes at the left image are useless. The one for $30 could also be used as a ‘man’ (as the model name says: ‘MAN_WOMAN’).

I think the author could increase the model sales by including ‘Down Syndrome’ and ‘Hermaphrodite’ into ‘keywords’.

Here is zoomed view of the model:

Model Author: ‘Giorgio Bogoni’.

$200 for the FaceGen model? You gotta be kidding!

$200 for the model made in FaceGen? Hmm, too pricey I think. And too heavy: 3DStudio MAX model weights 1.1Mb.

The Real Saturn look

The real planet Saturn should look like a teapot made of bricks with flat cooper coil around it.
There is no need for NASA to spend billions of bucks to send space probe up there to take Saturn pictures. Just spend $10 for the model and you are done.

Fine Jewelry: See You local Hardware Store

Model Name: ‘Women Ring’
Price: $40.75
Format: 3DStudio MAX, file size: 182Kb;

I think it’s a great idea: the model could fit several categories: jewelry, hardware, heavy machinery, electronics, vehicle parts, etc. Switching between 3DStudio MAX materials from brass to platinum will increase the model’s value: up to 40 bucks for sure.
As for me, I used to use one to repair my fishing rod. Inner thread is missing though. Otherwise nice washer!

What happened to this wreck?

Looks like this model was meshsmoothed a couple of times which definitely increases its market value up to $20. The model comes in 3DStudio MAX format, file size: 374Kb. Polygon count info is n/a but I assume it is about 100K..200K easily.
