I am going to start a list to promote artists who are making great models but just aren't getting the views.
I am going to start a list to promote artists who are making great models but just aren't getting the views.
There is a lot of original brilliant content out there that never gets seen or goes on the main page of CGT.
Feel free to pitch in everyone!
If you like an artist on CGT who makes original work that is not copied exactly from something else and you want to help her / him get noticed
post a link to their work here thanks!
I accidentally voted this down and not up. Sorry mate, i think it fantastic that you do this!
Thanks hknoblauch! I really want the CGT community to get better and better and have as many artists pull together to help each other :)
Here is another great artist with very little views! https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/weapon-military/melee/sword-arador
I don't know how this happens but it needs to get fixed.
There is a lot of quality art out there that never makes it to the front page of CGT and it is still a mystery why that is but whenever I find something good I will put it up here.
If people want to help me that would be much appreciated!
Here is another artist worthy of notice! https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/vehicle/part/alloy-wheel-and-tire-concept
He makes some really cool car parts!
What a great idea here is one https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/plant-tree/other/handpainted-turntable-platforms
https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/character-people/fantasy/chinese-dragon-head#tab-comments This dragon is amazing!
Here is some great under water work:
Well done to"qqpt2084"

I really love this rigged cobra snake
Hey guys, check out these well built / modeled assets - great for quickly populating an urban scene

There's a good way to promote those works on pinterest, which also generates some traffic to models :)
Let me know if you'd like to be a part of it and I'll send you an invite to our Pinterest board which is dedicated on sharing great works by 3D artists - https://www.pinterest.com/cgtrader/3d-model-showcase/
Well, there's a "pin it button" extension, that works on Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari and Microsoft Edge.
Basically, once you install the button, you can actually pin any image you see on a webpage.
You can also create boards with different content you want to save. Whether it's 3D art, motorcycles or anything else.
I.e. I just went to the https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/plant-tree/flower/waterlily-with-leaf page you've posted earlier and pinned it on our Pinterest board. You can now see the image on this board: https://www.pinterest.com/cgtrader/3d-model-showcase/ - and if you click on the image, it will expand the details and can lead you to the link of the model.
The board I've showed is already joined by some 3D designers we've invited, and they also post any 3D models they like for everyone to see.
The button integration is explained here according to the browser you use:
I'm also planning on writing a blog post with CGTrader insights into Pinterest at the beginning of next week. :)
I will try it out thanks. Do you know if any CGT buyers look at the Pinterest page?
Well, some of the buyers definitely use it, since I can see some transactions (not too many yet, but not 'nothing' as well) come from Pinterest referrals.
My first guess would be that it's more for new buyers coming in looking for some 3D models rather than already existing buyers.
Cool! Good to know this way hopefully more people will get sales! I like it :)
https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-print-models/games-toys/other/lotus--4 I am trying to work out pinterest but for now here is one more.
I tried posting on pinterest... Does anyone know if the images showed up there? https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-print-models/house/accessories/turtle-shell-c702806a-8eb7-478f-ac35-95d2366d6bbc
Ok sounds good thanks :)
Here are some more! Enjoy! If all goes well they will show on Pinterest too;
Hey guys and girls, check out these cool soldier accessories:
Hey guys, check out this leather satchel bag, really nice work
Cool! Thanks :)
Another great little art piece! https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/various/various-models/toon-garden-game-props
https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/space/spacecraft-sci-fi/sci-filight-fighter-x6 They should make this into a toy
Never seen shoes like these https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-print-models/fashion/shoes/art-nouveau-shoe
I have been posting on Pinterest does anyone know if any of my posts are making it on there? I think it should be working now.
https://www.cgtrader.com/free-3d-models/architectural-exterior/landscape/lake-with-house-free This model should sell not sure why it is being given away for free...
Very interesting design on this character https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/character-people/other/knuckle-bear-toy
Does not get much better than a lion playing soccer! https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-print-models/art/sculptures/lion-sculpture--3
Do you know, I wish sometimes that when people link things in the forum, that a preview image would show up. I mean its great you guys have compiled this list... but now, as im reading it for the first time, i have no clue where to start if i wanted to check out things or w/e. But if every link had a preview image, then, i could just click on what im interested in personally and scroll past the rest. But me, obviously being a visually oriented person (as an artist) only see jumbles of letters in the forums sometimes, and so i just don't read things often. What you think?
These are very cool! Are they 3d models or scans?
I really like how they turned out! Do you guys also make them 3D printable?
I totally agree. Its a good idea.
https://www.cgtrader.com/jazzmanny I know it is a self-promoting plug to put you own link on here, but i think the work i have done should be shown to more people. I just created my site on here a few days and uploaded 22 models and counting so i hope people take the time to check it out. Some are full scenes made on there as well as low-poly models too.
Oh, really something unique? Can you be more specific? Any links to things to what you mean, then i could try to emulate them.
Here is an example.
Your every day boring typical couch. Now I am not saying it is bad but just does not fit this page.
Exciting couch that is unusual in design and fits this page.
Hope this helps explain things better.
Here is another.
Fun car concept fits this page.
Your typical 3d car. Technically well made but boring does not fit this page.
Thanks, i see i appreciate that
Thanks 3dartcritic! That's a really good way of explaining it!
Just wanted to give my friends a big shout out for working on some really cool projects with me over these past few weeks!
All of these are top notch artists who have helped me with different parts of my projects, Texturing, rigging, modeling, rendering, and preparing models for the
3D printing process.
If there are clients out there looking for great people, who are professional and get the work done well and fast then these are the guys you want!
Once again thanks guys for doing such a great job!!!
Adriano Sanna Helped with rigging and complex pose setup is also amazing with scripts and rendering
Devvan C. Sharp Helped with resizing and reconfiguration of 3D models for 3D printing and in the process of establishing final work ability for some of my 3D prints
Gurvinder Singh Sekhon Helped with resizing and reconfiguration of 3D models for 3D printing
Md Nesar Helped with vertex reconfiguration, hair modeling, texturing and rendering
Andrew Smith Helped with web design applications and rendering
Francesco Furneri Helped with rendering and texturing
https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-print-models/fashion/other/floral-swirls-comb-printable printable combs wow nice decortions.
I think you forgot me on that list...
https://www.cgtrader.com/yuuva heey me too! :D
I have been character modeling for 3 years now, but for some reason, I have had literally zero interest from game dev studios (applied to about 50) , zero freelance business even though I'm up and available on 5 of the most popular ones, and zero sales on stock asset sites like this (although I just started here lol) I am not asking for everyone to flock to me and give me business, I just wanna be on the cool kids list, and be noticed. This community and website is really a refreshingly nice and easy experience so far, I have a feeling I'll be spending a lot of time here
Nice job marvimation
I was also expecting to see my link but from here, I really understood that I will need to improve my models more ;)
Thanks for this topic
Some of your models are very good and others need better rendering. That is very common on cgt. Sellers tend to have a large variation in quality some really good ones and some not so.
Teşekkür ederim, silahlar konusunda çalışmalara devam edeceğim, özellikle Low-Poly silahlar yapmaya çalışıyorum. Tank ve Uçak konusunda denemeler yaptım ancak tankların ikisinde de low-poly formatını tutturmam mümkün olmadı. Uçak modellerimi de neredeyse hiç beğenmediğimden yayınlamaya değer bulmadım :) ancak şu an hedefimde 20 adet silah daha var, onların modelleri tamamlandıktan sonra tekrardan uçak denemesine girebilirim. :)
Değerlendirmen için tekrardan teşekkür ederim.
You are welcome ! By the way check out this creative artist https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/furniture/lamp-light/diy-cat-decorative-light-lamp

please check my models.
https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/space/spaceship/kob-r4-lt good models but should not give them away for free!
Interesting many good models with low views, do none generic models get priority?
Unconventional models get priority in this thread. Extra points for not being exact copies of some other artists work.
I think vdr0id is new, but I just stumbled on him. He only has 2 products up so far, but they are exceptionally good! Check out his modular game level set and his other game asset collection =)
mmm ok ^D

Just wanted to promote my good friend Denis! He has made some really good models for me https://www.instagram.com/p/BTTkuRIBFyU/
Wow I love the rendering!

I don't want to self promote but, I have a couple high quality models. I just don't have many models posted yet and I am working on making more pictures for them. Sorry for the ruthless self promo.
I like the rendering on your hat Pamela!
Serendipity lol! Art is funny that way. So many great things happen just like that :)
Wow! Flying tank but super cool! https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/vehicle/sci-fi/tempest-hover-tank
And more specifically this product listing: https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/various/various-models/protogenetic-subculture-lowpoly-gameready-cyberpunk-collection
Absolutely incredible asset collection for game makers.
Detailed sewing machine
It is hard to sell 3D models in general but I noticed that you do not include wireframes of your models. That is an important tool you have to show off your modeling skills and buyers like to see that. It is also good to include more then just one render of your models. Another few factors that may be slowing down your sales is that you need to have at least 1000 views on a model to be lucky enough for it to be seen and also if you only have 10 models that also decreases your chances of it being found.
My favourite one since I love animals
Some more amazing models! https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/electronics/other/digital-vintage-clock-radio-dreamliner-ii-3d-model Great creativity and craftmanship all around!
Great rendering game style art https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/various/various-models/rock-set-vol03-16-blocks
Can you see my profile? I dont have views
This is an important topic I wanted to share with all of you interested in 3D printing or buying a 3D printer.
I made all the mistakes and learned from them so you do not have to.
This robot is amazing... I really like it
can you check my projects :)
i dont have sells
hi everyone just join cgtrader recently, it's great to be here and hope i can make some passive income for the next years
This model is amazing!!!!!!!
see my project
Heres a link to one of my new photogrammetry models:
And a new pillow collection:
Example of a great detailed sword with the only problem that it has an extreme poly count. I really like the detail and the fact it bring backs memories of the sword in the stone. It is worth creating a low poly version of the sword for 3d printing... perhaps I will make a similar model inspired by this concept https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-print-models/games-toys/other/sword-of-king
We've uploaded 2 new barstool sets, all sets come in 3 sizes and various manufacturer colours which all included. We'll be releasing one more set and will then include them all into one collection, that is 4 sets in one collection with a reasonable discount.
Here's the first set we uploaded a while back:
All our texture sets are free too and we've also got some free models, please be sure it check it out. Enjoy!
Thank you very much 3dleader :)

Bookmarked! I'll be reading down this list. Thanks in advance to OP and to all who have made a contribution to the thread!
RIGGED CANNON to be used in games and animations
I was going to suggest they start a featured artist section. If not in the community section - at least in the forums. Also interviews with veteran industry pros (as part of that feature) is also interesting.
Hi there, i'm relatively new here. I also notice that i'm getting few views only. I've got almost 50 models now, most are highly optimized, full PBR 3d scans. Recently added viewer files, they look awesome in Marmoset (although i'm now getting black pages when trying to open the viewer files in the CGtrader frame, error?). I'd love to hear some feedback! https://www.cgtrader.com/hane3d
Example 3d scan: https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/scanned/various/india-tree-carving
Example self made (with Blender) model: https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/military/melee/roman-shield-scutum
Please take a look at my latest model, a set of 5 machetes for VR/GameReady, Thank you!
Hi, here other professional of 3D :D
Hey! This is a good idea!
It might look like self-promoting, but I share this account with my wife, and she is the one who made these cool 3d art. So I put it here, and you decide is it worth or not to include to your collection. ;)
Hello ! my Old Hammer
