    Ok, so I have had... a number of weeks of doing practically nothing, and I think it is about time I did something... about it.

    I am a 3D modeler, working in 3D for a few years now. I am wondering if any Mappers need models right now. I am aiming at mappers right now, not people wanting skins, 'cause there is an endless amount of people wanting skins, and I don't want the thread to be flooded with unusual requests.

    Got three models on hand, as most died with my last laptop... D:

    First one I submitted to valve

    As you see, I am not fantastic with texturing so far... but I know a good texture website, if that helps.

    Second... isn't complete, but I am making Manbearpig as a 3D model... from southpark

    That is just the head.

    Lastly, I got really irritated at some point, and made this pokemon:

    I... just hate that otter.

    Ok, so, if you want, please request a model for your map or map team. I work best off a reference, so I will actually refuse to work off a request without any references whatsoever... because those just get irritating. I also have a very good example of a BAD request if someone doesn't come to standards.

    Well i need a model of a piano like from Ocean's Eleven. Theres a vid if you search Ain't That A Kick In The Head - Dean Martin. Its a SAHARA. If anyone else wants a model you can just skip me, Im just going to put it on a stage.

    I'm a modeler too, and I was just gonna say that modeling high poly is really different from TF2 / game modeling where you really have to watch your polycount.

    They look OK though. Good luck with everything.

    Thankyou. and yes, I understand the polycount business... I can't have it excessive (meaning I should NOT use turbosmooth) as well as players want to look at it and not lag...

    Thanks for the thumbs up though :D

    There's almost always something to be done, if you check around. We have a request thread where people can post needs and have them filled, or jump in the chat room and ask around. There's a major contest deadline on the horizon, soon people will be asking for items.

    Alright, seems good to me. even an image done in paint is good enough really... personally, I have done models with pixel-ated sprites as references
    I will be posting some images of the work, all you need to do is judge it and guide me in the right path.

    And thanks Rexy, I will definately take a better look around the forums. I did see a request forum, and some of the requests there do look.... fun :D. I'll take a look in the chat room when I can.

    should mention, I can also do some rigging for anyone who needs. for ragdolls, players, etc.
    I go by the username TheRunningDafini, if anyone have seen either my big daddy charger (l4d2) or engie tails... note, those are not my own models, but I did rig them up for use as skins.
    only reason I do not use that username here is that it was one digit too long...

    EDIT:
    this what you were thinking Quake?

    You still here? I need a model, so if you could contact me that would be great. I don't really want to shout out the details here.

    You can see my steam identity, so feel free to add me.

    I've tried to learn to model, but I barely have time to follow the tutorials
