As we’re always on the lookout for good uses of TurboSquid’s 3D models, we were thrilled at the most recent sighting. A blog post by Future Media Concepts of Orlando provides a detailed account of how 3D animator Jean Marco Ruesta not only brought four TurboSquid models to life, but also how he pushed them outside the YouTube player’s boundaries to swim onto visitors’ screens.
The lifelike aquatic life starring in these online promotions included:
Ruesta, who also teaches Maxon’s Cinema 4D at the New York School of the Arts, created the finished product using Cinema 4D and Adobe After Effects. Check out his work on River Monster’s YouTube Page as well as Shark Week on YouTube.
Once you’ve seen it in action, be sure to see the full blog post “How They Did It: Bringing Creatures to Life in Discovery Networks’ Online Promos” for all the details on how he made it happen.

The acclaimed HBO series Big Love aired its series finale in March 2011. As the series’ characters discuss their futures in the main house’s living room at the end of the episode, the camera backs out a window to gradually show the house’s exterior amid fall trees and parked cars.
Production studio Encore Hollywood created this final scene with the help of several TurboSquid models.
Here at TurboSquid, we were tickled to learn that one of our models is featured in the viral video Mr. Toots. A cute yet evil unicorn wreaks havoc in this hilarious video from the Freddie Wong channel. The skeleton that appears around 0:55 is a TurboSquid model.
In this companion video, the Freddie Wong team talks about how they got the unicorn model, and around the 4:45 mark their 3ds Max artist mentions TurboSquid by name.
These videos are rated DUB for Disturbing Unicorn Behavior. If you are offended by ill-mannered unicorns, we strongly advise you not to watch either of these videos.
The latest issue of 3D Artist magazine has a lot of goodies for stock 3D artists and users.

The magazine also includes an article called “TurboSquid’s Technical Tips: Standards to please any clients”. This article covers the 3D modeling standards we’ve been developing to improve the customer experience for not just TurboSquid shoppers, but also for custom work and the entire stock 3D industry as a whole.
