Second upload. Bear sculpture

Discussion started by StickSalesman

Hello, I'm new here. My name is Eugen I'm from Ukraine, and I'm self-taught 3D artist.

I've just uploaded my bear sculpt

This model is actually the first one I've made with actual intent to sell on CGtrader and I have few questions. First of all is it okay and alowed to sell both highpoly and lowpoly model in one slot and mark it as a lowpoly?

I'd also like to hear some feedback on topology, because I don't retopoligize a lot.

And in general what direction do you advice me to choose if I decide to do models full time? I'm mostly interested in stylized props, stylized characters and creatures (like this one) and miniatures for 3d print. Are people actually interested in handpainted stuff, or photorealistic/PBR models sell more?

The model looks ok to me. 9k polys is perfectly fine to be considered "low poly" these days, and should be relatively easy to rig with modern rigging tools in most software packages. Since you're offering the native .blend file, it would certainly help sales to include a rigged version if possible, and since it's a low poly model, optimizing it for the Eevee render engine might also help sales for many Blender clients. Eevee PBR materials usually convert quite well to Cycles, but not always so the other way around.

Offering the "high poly" version along with the low poly is also a good idea, and should also help sales, especially if the high poly version can be 3d printed. Even if it can not, it should be fine to include it and should not impact the low poly tag. You can offer it with the low poly model as a download option (STL), that's a good way to do it.
