Project Description:
Hello, Illume Studio is looking for an exceptional 3D Modeler and Texture Artist who specializes in hard surface modeling. If you match our requirements and perform well in this initial project, then there is possibility for long term relationship. We are a CG studio based in Houston, TX, US. The core of our studio is producing high-end 3D animations for films, television, advertisements, and video games. However, we are expanding our services in 2010 which requires outside help. The nature of the job requires the service provider to sign legal agreements which releases . Details will be provided through PM. Please send us a PM along with your bid. Below are the requirements that you must meet. Sorry, we are looking for experience professionals, not amateurs. So, if you cannot meet the following requirements or match the quality of the sample images provided, please do not bid.

1). Must be an expert in 3D hard surface modeling and in texturing your models. Your work must be on the same level or surpasses these examples.

You must also be able to setup your own scene with effective lighting for rendering.

2). We can only accept models created in Maya and Max, but Maya is preferred.

3). You must, and this is a must, create original materials. Meaning you must build the models from scratch. You cannot just go purchase or worse, illegally download a model and give it to us. Also, you cannot purchase a model and modify it, hoping we do not find out. We are professionals in the CG industry. We have been monitoring and participating in websites such as Turbosquid, The3DStudio, 3D02, Falling Pixel, Exchange 3D, Flat Pyramid, etc. for years. So more than likely, we will spot something we've seen before. With that said, you are required to show work in progress frequently.

4). You must be able to provide samples of your previous work. A strong portfolio is very important to us.

5). You must be able to understand English well. We may have voice communications from time to time. So, it is a plus if you can speak fluent English.

For our first collaboration, we would like for you to create a gothic cathedral. We want this to be visually stunning from in and out. Meaning, the interior and exterior has to be modeled and textured to the highest quality that the freelancer can provide. I encourage you to treat this project as a tryout to secure more modeling projects from us in the near future. Also, please google some reference images and get a feel of the work involved before bidding. We will provide the final reference images to the chosen provider.

Thank you and we look forward on seeing your work!
