Hi, I am a new animator in 3D, and to add more stuff to my reel, i would like to create a small animation in a medieval word. Well, first i would like to know if there is anybody who would like to do me a free model, i have the picture i need. I want the model to be real so feel free to make some change in the muscle place, proportion or things like that. Im not the best drawer too :)
Oh and the hair can be more like dragonball style if its too much work hehe

Well here it is, juste send me a post, or email me at sylvainethier@gmail.com

Thx in advance !

I really, realy doubt that. In fact, there were free models by Christophe Desse a.k.a "xtrm3d" here on CGT (http://features.cgsociety.org/story_custom.php?story_id=1115&page=) . And speaking of professional - yes, putting some elses work on your reel is quite a definition of professionalism.

Lol, i don't care showing model of other people, i will even mention the name of the person in the end of the reel. My part is to animated and maybe rigged it !

Im an animator not a modeler...

Well on a serious note. If you look at the work of students that specialize in animation the models are usually very basic. The guys at animationmentor seem to use a standard model of sorts that lets the work shine through. Flashy models with a high level of detail wont do it for you. Not only that the higher the res the longer it will take you to animate and render unless you use a proxy.

Yes good work is not free. You will expect to be paid for your work also.

I'm actually in agreement with Kanga here. I currently have 1 colleague and 5 former students in AM right now. You really want a basic model, that is easily animatable, so your skills can show through. A complex model requires much more time to make believable animation, rig, and troubleshoot.

Many of my students that prep for AM, like to use 1 of the many free generi rigs out there.
Max one...

I kind of wonder if AM will start selling some of their older rigs as they update them. They would make a bundle. hehehe

scrimski: that was freaking awesome.

Nobunage: As all the other posters said, keep it simple for the model. There are plenty of free rigged models out there, so you can just focus on animation. People looking at your reel won't care how god the characters look. Honestly, since most animators use simple models, they will probably stop watching your reel the second they see that.

Good animators don't need a realistic model to make something look believable. And if you want "good work to put in your reel" make your own.
