As I understand it, he is offering money for these concept models (5) and then will offer money for an artist to take the chosen concept and make it into a high poly model.
I don’t particularly agree with this way of going about it. But people are participating on their own. And he is paying. There is not even a requirement that they post the ideas here.
Having said that, here is the sketch I made just for fun and sent to the OP already. I have not had time to model it. Just a fun thing really for me, if someone is willing to pay. And I am just learning Zbrush so I thought it might be fun to do.
If anyone wants to model a basic model it have at it. I do believe he said he liked it and was willing to pay for a model of it. I just have not had the time to play with it.
What I do suggest people do is take a few minutes to make a sketch and send it over, if he likes it, he’ll pay you do do the model. That is how I understand it. I don’t believe I read anything about a free for all of model submissions.
But honestly, if you doing this, it aint for the money.
Regardless, it is not a contest.
