You could also use Photoshop Elements and get Nvida mods on it for making 3d models. Its a lot cheaper and easier than photoshop.

Right now I'm using my moms.

BiggAdd could you please remove the Archive 3D as it looks like they have identical models to ones that Evermotion are selling,

http://archive3d.net/?category=1380 is the same as http://www.evermotion.org/modelshop/show_product/archmodels-vol-44/109/0/0/
and im pretty sure ive seen others on there too.

http://cg.tutsplus.com/

this site is amazing they have a decent amount of tutorials all video. they also pay people that submit video tutorials to their site.

they have tutorials for programs such as autodesk(maya and 3ds max), cinema 4D, blender, zbrush, mudbox. and they have very good quality tutorials. i followed a cinema 4D tutorial on there that covered Modeling Uv mapping and Textureing a Grenade. and am AMAZED! that it was free. the tutorial was 2 hrs 30 mins total the grenade was a Type 97 hand grenade, the standard fragmentation grenade that was used by the Imperial Japanese Army in WWII.

they also have a remarkable Zbrush tutorial 3 part that covers the modeling of a Demon-like ‘Lok Warrior’ that i intend to follow as soon as possible.

i also noticed that they have some tutorials that cover next gen modeling.

over all this site is a must for ANY one looking into tutorials.

lol well i just noticed that it had already been posted about*tear*(there i thought i had an amazing discovery)

Filter Forge. Great program for making textures, There are presets (Wood and stuff) With sliders you move about to create a unique texture. Has a seamless option and can make normal maps. Comes as a program and a plugin for photoshop.

no i certanly wont, ive tried it,, its only flaw in my opinion is that it uses tris, which can cause flaws when poly reducing... but other than that it works great! i absolutly LOVE IT... definitly the best introduction to sculpting out there

http://www.mapzoneeditor.com/?PAGE=HOME MaPZone: Not sure if anyone posted this one yet, but this one is pretty good. Uses nodes and all that to make textures, check out the gallery and see some pretty awesome stuff there. Downloaded it, and I have to say it looks impressive (the pictures contain example files from the program once you download it). BTW I just discovered it today, I haven't used it much, but it looks promising.

Well I always forget to post this up lol,

http://kuler.adobe.com/

This is a web palette that allows you to create a pretty decent colour set for characters and whatever else your texturing. I always use this when im lost or stuck in a blue/grey rut.

Its good to steal some other peoples palletes aswell. I just knick the top guys one now and then

CB Model pro is a decent free modelling program, can be fun to use even if the tools are slightly limited. It's a bit like playing with digital clay. The project producing it is no longer active but it's a useful little resource I've found:

FACEWORX - just what I need. Unfortunately, it now appears to a service, not software.

Anyone any ideas for an alternative?

EDIT: I found it! (the original link was to a non existant page - in German). It is here;

There is a good free renderer called Kerkythea, it is available for Windows, MacOSX and Linux and has loads of free extras available such as trees, plants, surfaces, skies etc..

Here is a model of an old book I made in wings3d and rendered in kerkythea:

I use 3D Coat, its very Similar to Zbrush and Mudbox, You can sculpt a high poly mesh out of voxils and retopologize it to a low poly mesh using the repo tool and bake your ambient occlusion map and normal map and paint in displacement and color, texture, its nice because it uses layers just like photo shop, when your done you can export out your low poly mesh all textured ready for your game or rigging and animation in Max.

http://www.3d-coat.com/




High Poly Voxil Mesh



Low Poly Retopo Mesh, you can UV map your model at the same time as you retopologizing it



Low poly Mesh, textured, with ambient occlusion map, normal map,specular map, using Direct X9 Shader in viewport

I found a nice place, which isn't on list, to sell or buy 3d models. CGTrader 3D models offers a lot models, also there you can find free models. And easy filters to find what you need.

I wanted to mention that there is a Photoshop CS6 beta out right now that's free for people to use.

http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/photoshopcs6.html

I've downloaded, but haven't used it yet. From some videos I watched of it, it seems they have changed to UI to resemble 3ds Max's. It's got a couple nice new features such as Perspective Cropping and Tiltshift blurring.
