Question about model requests

Hi, I'm new here, and I'm wondering... Is there anyone here capable of modeling characters from scratch? If so, is it allowed to request such a model given references? or are requests are strictly for creating/modifying existing characters/models. The reason I ask, Is because I've been looking for someone to perhaps create a 3D Model of a character of mine, with the intention to use server-side it in several games. (Namely, Team Fortress 2, Unreal Tournament 2004, and CounterStrike: Source) I run a small community of about 120 members, with several adult-oriented servers. The general mentality of our community is that anyone is welcome. Furry, Non-Furry, Straight, Gay, Lesbian, Bi, etc.

There is second to no chance it will be done. Making a model from scratch is one hell of a undertaking.

Ah, well thanks for the reply. Got any recommendations for where to look, perhaps commission someone who doesn't mind doing nude models? Another thing I want to ask, how's the difficulty of morphing existing models, or rigging models produced from a sculpt? I've always wanted to get this guy done:

Well, I found someone who was willing to make a model of him, and I commissioned said person. It will be a while before the model is ready, but would anyone here be willing to get him into source once it's ready? On a side note: I know it's not erotic, but since there seems to be a lot of modeling talent here, would someone be willing to make headless(w/bloody stump) ragdoll versions of the different CS:GO player models? I'm working on a fancy gore mod for CS:GO using Sourcemod to swap the models on a headshot kill.

gory stuff is usually frowned on here you might be better asking for that sort of thing on http://facepunch.com/

Well Facepunch and Garry see decapitation as healthy entertainment for the kids since no such poses are ever banned. I got a 14 days ban because of this http://uppix.net/c/f/c/4f7f28fac427b6c4 ... 32e921.jpg Apparently a girls nipple is a greater threat to the youth than the totally innocent sprouting of blood from a headless neck. So ask there. I will not allow it here.

... Sorry. I wasn't trying to piss anyone off. Facepunch is a shithole anyway so I'm not surprised that you'd get banned for something as simple as that. (You can get banned for sneezing in the wrong direction there pretty much.) It's fine if nobody wants to do that, or if It's not going to be allowed here. I just didn't think there was any harm in asking... so that's why I asked while it was on my mind. Just for clarification: While I have been putting a gore mod together, the server it's being used in has a greater focus on silly dark humor, rather than taking itself seriously. (It's really over the top, and makes use of zany sound effects, makes references to other games, and whatnot. Think an adult swim cartoon in a way, Serious Sam, or the end of the Counterstrike for Kids video with crackbone reviewing a fictional CS: Extreme Gore Edition.) Anyhow, switching subject... what about my other question? ("Well, I found someone who was willing to make a model of him, and I commissioned said person. It will be a while before the model is ready, but would anyone here be willing to get him into source once it's ready?")

Thanks for offering. :3 Although, after giving it some more thought, I decided to turn away from CS:GO because Valve and HPE really half-assed it and broke a lot of the modding features and support. I went back to CS:Source which has models for what I need. :) Though, once I get that model of my character posted above from the person I had commissioned, I'll look forward to seeing if someone here could help me get him into the source engine. :3

It's not finished yet, but here's a preview of the model that's being put together: It doesn't have any textures yet, and some features need finishing, but the artist is doing a great job so far.

when this model is done and being brought to gmod, crash from crash game will have a brother.
