dA Points Commissions

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 25, 2013, 8:11 AM
I decided to add dA's commission widget to my page for render and model/prop commissions to see how it works. In case you were not aware of the widget here is the link
www.deviantart.com/commissions… .

I will still be accepting commissions using Paypal direct but for those that would like to use dA points the option is available.

I have added a widget below for the status of the commissions/requests.

Note: The cost to use dA points will be a little more than using Paypal direct because of the 20% transaction fee dA charges to convert the points to Paypal.

A SciFi geek at heart, my love of modeling started with plastic model kits, but when that became too expensive I stopped. After tech school I got a job as a drafter at an electrical engineering office which turned into being a CADD operator. For those curious AutoCAD 2.17 was the first real CADD program I used. Using AutoCAD I transitioned into 3D modeling and animation using 3D Studio and later Carrara. Now I am hoping to land a job that I can use my 3D modeling/graphic abilities.

Amiras Lightsaber by RisiaVyle by Ironcore33
Whipbird Bow, A Commission for Dimitian by JamesVillanueva
What is needed from you is:

:bulletgreen: A design of your own making. Designs (parts or complete) from other artist used without permission will be declined. Also if you need a model for your 3D class homework, forget it - do your own rendering.
:bulletgreen: If describing the model, please note materials, color, size, shape, etc. Make sure you note ALL design elements before submitting your commission, this will ensure that I don't have to modify/rebuild completed parts. I stopped reading minds a long time ago, so be detailed.
:bulletgreen: I have placed Carrara's base material libraries in my Scrapbook Library if you need to look at materials. jamesvillanueva.deviantart.com…
:bulletgreen: Your have your choice of the following scenes 1 through 15 fav.me/d3dldvz . Scene 1 will be the default scene if not specified.
:bulletgreen: Payment accepted though deviantART points or PayPal direct (Note: Cost via Paypal direct would be $20.00 US).
:bulletgreen: If you want the 3D models that is a separate cost. You are only paying for a render of the model not the original 3D model.
:bulletgreen: Have any questions? Please feel free to ask before submitting your commission via Note.

What you get is:
:bulletgreen: A couple test renders will be done to make any  adjustments prior to final render.
:bulletgreen: The final rendered image can contain up to two close up views of the same model.
:bulletgreen: Final image size will be from 4096x3072 to 6400x3600 in the format or your choice (.jpg .png etc.) with no watermarks. The final render will not be posted on my dA page or website but will be e-mailed or posted for pickup in a non-public directory.
:bulletgreen: Any additional renders will be $5 per render.

I am thinking about making a gear that can relate to Sith Emperor's robes like the one from the game, but dont know what pieces I need to make it. But black and black dye was the color choice like the one here. Trying to look similar from his robes.

Here's an image lifted from the January 1986 issues of American Radio History Magazine that I was hoping you'd recreate:
