Paul Teall Featured Artists

I’ve been meaning to do this for a few weeks, and it’s something we plan on doing on a regular basis.  When I saw this model, I figured now was a good time to start.  I was flipping through some of our newly published models, and saw this incredible aircraft carrier from exclusive TurboSquid seller FraP:

Everything about this product screams quality.  FraP has done a tremendous job not only on the model, but also with the publishing process.  He’s got detailed thumbs that show every possible angle of the ship, shots of both the untextured version and wire frames (buyers love wire frames!), and a nice description and use of keywords.  If any new sellers are out there and are looking for examples of a nicely published product, this is a great one to look at.

Beau Perschall 3D Modeling

This time out, we’re going to look at another crucial aspect of publishing that may seem obvious to some of you: the naming of the parts of your 3D model logically. Now, I’m not trying to force any of you to adopt some sort of draconian method or system to name your models, but our Member Services team has dealt with their fair share of clients who need help in trying to decipher a complex 3D model and figure out how it works simply because everything within it is named “Box209”, “Box210”, “pSphere75”, “CV_Curve26”, etc. Read More
