 No more requests.

I seem to be getting requests from Poser and daz users , that are ...well....let's just say that fulfilling those requests would be very challenging for me. I have talked about this earlier, but it seems to me that people just don't understand what the difference between a hobbyist and a professional 3d modeler is. So let me clarify:

There is a good reason why you have to pay money for content that Uzilite, Stonemason, Aerysoul and Pretty3d make (just to name a few professional content creators) and why my stuff is free. These people are professionals, they have time and skills that I don't have and they expect to be compensated for their hard work.

How ever, I am a hobbyist. People seem to be confused as to what that means; It means that I simply don't have the time model things like, Tali from Mass Effect. Even if I had the time, it would be quite impossible for me to put a price on that model. It would take me weeks, possibly longer (considering that I would have to rig, Uv map, make the mesh poser ready and create morphs as well) to model High quality characters from popular video games. I'm simply not experienced enough to do that sort of thing and I don't have the time either. And I couldn't put a price on a project like that either. Those people who are experienced and skilled enough to do that sort of thing, are usually professionals.

That leads me to my next point (that I keep making over and over again) ;If you want high quality content for poser and are not interested in creating it yourself, be prepared to pay for it. I am not interested in becoming a vendor, for me this is a hobby. I think it is quite unusual to ask a hobbyist to create rare niche items.

Lastly, I won't be listening to requests any more. I'm sorry that I can't be more helpful and I am sorry my freebies aren't enough, but I am not going to be able to fulfill people's Poser needs or wants. I simply haven't got the time for it. It's best that people understood this.
