Renderosity has a very active marketplace with dozens and dozens of vendors creating poses, figures, clothing, props, VFX, background images, and entirely new characters. There are regular sales each week with discounts and specials. Explore the marketplace and find a favorite vendor to follow. Also, many of the vendors give away creations in the Free Stuff section of the Marketplace. Renderosity keeps track of all of your transactions and shows them on your own homepage along with download links in case you lose an item. 
And consider Prime Membership at Renderosity. For a low monthly fee, you get incredible benefits including credit back for every purchase, a special Prime members gallery and newsletter along with special sales. It's a really good deal.
Step 3 - Check Terms of Service (TOS) and use Sitemail
Renderosity, like any other site, has specific terms if you want to be part of the community. Rude and unacceptable behavior, copyright violations, and explicit sexual content are the main issues addressed in the TOS. Give it a read before you post or contribute to the forums. Also, Renderosity has a robust sitemail feature that allows you to communicate privately with other members. 
Step 4 - Upload Your Creations and use your file locker
Renderosity members upload hundreds of new works to the site every day. Why don't you upload some of your images or videos to the site? Find the gallery that fits the topic of your image/video and upload it to that gallery. You can choose to have other members comment on your work or not. You'll find an upload link on the gallery page of your profile and also on the main Renderosity galleries page. Just follow the instructions on your upload page to determine sizes and info. Note that Renderosity currently only accepts the JPEG format for images. 
Lastly, Renderosity gives you 5 GB of space in your File Locker to upload your personal files, etc. You have a 1 GB monthly bandwidth limit as well.
