The guys over at the Blender Model Repository have been working on some new tools and resources for budding artists, and it’s finally finished.
Users have the ability to create their own (highly customisable) portfolio, share files online (complete with commenting system), manage their current projects as to easily show progress online, as well as keep up with their friends’ creations.
We believe these resources are vital towards getting any creative individual showcased on the web, without them spending loads on server space or learning complex programming. We’ve focused a lot on trying to give the user complete freedom in terms of how they want to display their creations, from a wide variety of file types to the size of the icon.
Another problem we aim to solve is the inability for users to easily showcase what they’re currently working on. The current preferred method is through Works-In-Progress forum threads, however we provide a standard and easily maintainable method of showing progress, which doesn’t confuse any newcomers to the project.
Of course, it’s still in its beta period, and we’d love to have all the feedback possible to create an excellent resource for all creative individuals!
