Content Creator's Guild members are putting together a promotional disk for SIGGRAPH 2008. All CCG independent vendors (free to join) can have 10 MB of space on this disk.

e-on software and Smith Micro are already sponsoring this, and Smith Micro will distribute the disk on the show floor.

This is a great chance to promote your commercial content. A part of this is a vendor link and description on the disk, so you can point right back to your store on Renderosity if you like.

 Its Like Giving Birth - Toon Santa 2007 - Toon Santa's Castle Kit
 0 comment(s)


My little team has been sweating, especially right after Halloween! Finally, we can start showing off our new Christmas releases - here is the first model in Toon Santa's Christmas Village 2007 - the Castle Kit!


This is a really handy container for Christmas scenes. Drop some buildings inside, and you have an instant "close" backdrop. The demo configuration is great because, if you are like me, you want an instant configuration. But there are excellent parts inside. When we shipped Medieval Ukraine Village, we heard back from customers who loved the "walkway" castle walls - that link right into the towers. We did this again with House of Nosferatu, and here again with Toon Santa's Castle Kit.

Meshbox Design News – the Week ending November 18

We cannot kid ourselves that its still fall – cold rain and morning fog here in Oregon herald the coming of December. Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Surprisingly, although most of our Christmas releases have already been released, Meshbox Design just keeps getting busier and busier!

In October, we finished the popular Haunted Village Series (both models and music) and began the City of Vampires series of buildings. There's a mythology built around the City of Vampires – a place you can reach by passing over the Plain of Nightmares to the resting place of the souls of vampires. We rounded off the month with a massive release of Toon Santa 2006, Mrs Toon Santa 2006, and Toon Santa's Christmas Village 2006.

In November, we began a new series called Nation of Toons. These are more or less realistic models or representative of an alternate America – there's some fun here – you will see! Our first two releases are budget releases: George for Poser, a little boy with a very light weight poly count – perfect for background characters; and Starship Valentina, a futuristic spin on the real world space shuttle. Our big release in Nation of Toons is a little fellow – Mister Puggles the Pug! You will adore him! We also continued releases of City of Vampires and restarted the Faerie Village Volume 1 series.

NEW RELEASES: MODELS

ORDER: http://www.meshbox.com/george.html
DESCRIPTION: George is a friendly little fellow and a citizen of the Nation of Toons! This young boy in t-shirt and jeans looks like he belongs anywhere an everywhere. He looks innocent but don’t let that fool you - George can find trouble with the best of them.

Starship Valentina (for Poser) -$9.95
REF: http://www.meshboxbb.com/viewforum.php?f=36
ORDER: http://www.meshbox.com/valentina.html

REF: http://www.meshboxbb.com/viewforum.php?f=6

City of Vampires: Martina the Poisener - $10 / Complete Edition $40
REF: http://www.meshboxbb.com/viewforum.php?f=32
ORDER: http://www.meshbox.com/COV1X100.html
DESCRIPTION: In life, Martina the Poisener was a wealthy noble woman who required great wealth to maintain her position in the court - a means to afford the most elegant of gowns, the most cunningly cut jewels and the newest of hairstyles. She married a total of six times and, each of her husbands died not long after entering her bed chambers. Her crimes in life were terrible yet she did not embrace the darkness - it embraced her when her seventh husband turned out to be a vampire.

City of Vampires: The Old Library - $10 / Complete Edition $40
REF: http://www.meshboxbb.com/viewforum.php?f=32
ORDER: http://www.meshbox.com/COV1X100.html
DESCRIPTION: The Old Library is thought to be the first library in the City of Vampires. Though the number of volumes are limited, borrowers are surprised to find works thought lost in ages past or tomes written by the Great Old Ones. Powerful, dark enchantments keep any volume from being removed from the Old Library without the express permission of the Librarian.

City of Vampires: The Observatory - $10 / Complete Edition $40
REF: http://www.meshboxbb.com/viewforum.php?f=32
ORDER: http://www.meshbox.com/COV1X100.html
DESCRIPTION: The Observatory is a recent addition to the City of Vampires - as recent as the appearance of gaslight. Those who enter the observatory can feel the presense of someone there, as if the others exist slightly out of phase with the rest of the city. Yet evidence there is of an occupant - of one studying the stars, and of something else that called the vat of living, viscous fluid from the outer darkness.

 Just Released Toon Santa's Christmas Village 2006
 3 comment(s)


It has taken weeks but we finally released Toon Santa's Christmas Village 2006,
a set of 8 models in a fun, classic style. We doubled our normal texture map
resolution to 2048x2048 and included a transparency map - as well as included
Bryce 5, Vue 4, Poser 5 Prop and 3DS formats.


Its funny by an artist friend - why Christmas stuff now? Its bad enough that
Christmas promotions start before Thanksgiving, but hey, its not even Halloween
yet? Lynn was the one who came up with this early release. He wanted this early
because, there are a lot of customers out there that already have Toon Santa
and feedback has been that they start working on their holiday art far in advance
of the actual holiday.



Order now...



The Story of Toon Santa

If you grew up in the 70's in North America, you probably spent some quality
hours in December watching the Rankin/Bass stop motion classics such as Santa
Claus is Coming to Town, Rudoph the Red Nosed Reindeer, and a Year without
a Santa Claus (and a selection of more religious programming). Rankin/Bass
vision
did not seem to translate well into the era of computer animation - the one
attempt to make an all computer animated sequel to Rudoph didnt capture the
warmth of
the old Rankin/Bass classics.


Toon Santa is our humble offering - a warm, friendly and uncomplicated holiday
character in the same spirit as those original stop motion characters - and
bring it to the world of Poser.


In 2005, the simple joy of Toon Santa found its way to the Norad
Santa website
- NORAD is the government agency that tracks Santa's route
each Christmas. We are happy to see that at the release of Toon Santa's Christmas
Village in 2006, Toon Santa is still waving in new friends to their website.
