Non-organic Things Look Better In 3D Than in Reality

Pumper, a great modeler of non organic things, uploaded 41 of his wonderful 3D objects and so enriched assortment with various non organic models: router, calculator, bilboard, clocks and many others.

I have exactly the same router at home and you can see the difference: Pumper's 3D model looks much better than the real one :)

Pumper sells his models in various 3D stocks but he highly recommends (thank You, Pumper!). According to him:

Product prices 15% lower at as they pay 100% royalties to the artists!

We really do as there're no any commissions at! We know the artist can never be sure speculators payed him/her all account they had to, so we developed the partnership model were transactions are based on P2P with no share with middlemen. Thus artist can set lower prices for their 3D models as they receive all the payment.

NONECG Shares 80 3D Models and Invites To Visit NYC in 3D

  • If you look at the 3D model of New York City shared by NONECG, don't believe your eyes. I'm just back from NYC and can point 5 things that are missing:
  • yellow cabs
  • hod dog vendors
  • people
  • people
  • people

This is why we love CG: it allows us to build our own exclusive world and show it to others!

If we miss something in NY, we just add it, right? For us, 3D artists, it is not necessary even to climb to the Empire State Building to do that.
