Some people here sell. It seems to make beer money. Not enough to make a living on, I believe.

turbosquid is the most popular, but they do take a massive 50% of anything you sell... i have a few models on there that sell from time to time, only about one or two a month for about $10-20 each, so its bearly pocket change.... still better than a kick in the teeth, there was a thread in the forum talking about it, give it a search, most people were saying they dont make enough to shout about.

I know I have a vested interest in this, but it sounds like you guys could benefit considerably too if it all works out. Build a 3D website, nothing too complicated or too time consuming, show it around, get clients, build more, keep 100%. Profit. 50% commission to TS is shafting yourself. Cut out the middle man. I know there is a reasonably large *if* in there, but it's reducing by the day ... or go build Second Life content ... there's money in that too, apparently.
