23 Megabytes Big!

I'm currently downloading a 23MB sized zip file that is supposed to include the inside of a medievil room!

I found out about this site from and it includes some great historical-looking buildings including houses.

You can also download this file because it is available as a free download! Just click here to go to the site to be able to download these objects!

I have to say that while these objects are big in size they are definitely worth it if you are looking for some medieval objects to go into your renders.

I find that I LOVE these types of objects and I feel drawn to going for a more "gothic" feel to my 3D renders. This is a very great download site and it has just the kind of 3d objects that I am looking for.

While I'm still working on making my own 3d objects having more of them gives me a lot more to be able to work with.

I love the way that this room looks and I have a feeling that I will be using it a lot in some of my renders. What is also cool is that I can experiment with the textures, changing them to look other ways as well!

If this is an .obj file it will work great with my Vue or my Bryce 3d programs.

Another Free Download! The Ivy Generator!

I can't take the credit for finding this little "gem" of a program! The credit goes to the folks at the Bryce Forum on Delphi.

The Ivy Generator is a program that create ivy that you can include in your 3D renders. Below you will see an example of how one person used the program.

Here is my own little creation that I made while playing around with the program:

The Ivy Generator program is available as a free download from Thomas Luft and it is very generous of him indeed in that he states that you can use your renders for commercial purposes.

I just downloaded this program myself yesterday and I'm learning the program now. It has quite a few settings for how you want your ivy to look and those are the settings that I am learning.

A Career In 3D Art? Here's One Person That Has It!

Since I am a member of I have had a chance to see the works of other 3D artists as well and some of their work is so good!

There is one artist there named Duo (who lives in Italy by the way) who has a website where they list the clients that they have had. This is a very impressive list and it brings hope to my own aspirations of having a 3D career as well!

Some of the work that they have done for clients include CD covers, magazine covers and providing online graphics for their websites.

I also have a Working From Home Blog where I talk about the endless possibilities there are out there for one to be able to work from home and being a 3D Artist is another great example of this.

So if you are a 3D artist or just beginning to get into 3D, please be sure to visit their site. It should provide great inspiration to those who are thinking about having a career in 3D design and it will show you the possibilities that are out there.

Their website also includes some 3D models that you can download and use in Bryce versions 4 - 5.
