***PLEASE READ & REQUESTS***
Hey All

To everyone that posts here, please keep the links, photo references or any other type of resources posted here topical to this forum and website, and please report anything that is considered or you consider immaterial or otherwise to Site Admin or Moderator.

Also if you do answer a post, try and add a link as you go it will then save on wasting the threads with 'thank you's' all the time, your 'resource' is your 'thank you'

to keep the resource lounge under control, please put all your requested resource thread ideas in here, so if theres a subject matter that you feel we could do with then pop it in here and we'll see what we can do....

Cheers
Jay

Ah a tute so I gues you'd better put that in the DVd area. This is the resources lounges which is basically for links to textures, photos etc, not really to advertise other peoples tutes otherwise its pointless having this site. It does say under the resource lounge header what this particular lounge is for.

Perhaps you should post in the Members lounge or the comments and suggestions area

Cheers
Jay

hey jay - i'm wondering if it would be worth making the some of the threads sticky - such as textures, shaders, blueprints - so they don't get lost after 30 days. just a thought.

Hi,

looking for head refs for a japanese male, checked all the links and loads of refs but none that can be used for an oriental character.

cheers

Thanks Jay,

spent most of yesterday looking, no luck... googled for ages on various Japanese celebrities but still no luck. Looking for someone in the age range of 40-60 preferably.

cheers

did you try www.3d.sk ? I just went over there and typed in Asian and it came up with loads of stuff. I know you have to pay a small price for the juicy stuff but it may be worth it.

Hi Jay,

my subscription expired about 2 months ago and I'm pretty broke at the moment so won't be renewing for a while. Got a load of stuff I saved when I was a member - but none that fit the bill unfortunately.

cheers

ahaaaa!! I just got 3d world this month and it has a ton of 3d sk refs on the disc, including a male and female asian type on there (I kid you not) and in their 30 -40 years. Just for the record the front cover is by the legendary character artist Francisco Cortina so you cant miss it!!

hope that one helps for sure
Jay
