Welcome to The3DSociety!

:bulletred: :bulletgreen: :bulletblue:
My god has it been a while since I last published a journal so today, I decided to get around to it. I didn't disappear of the face of the earth, I was always monitering the activity of this group and other big 3D groups and to be honest, not a lot has happened really, wouldn't you agree? Well I'd like to tell you about some news in this journal right now!

At the moment, there are currently no 3D competitions being held in the deviantart community or outside of the community (as far as I know, but if I'm wrong, please comment), but 3D-Artists I believe are planning a competition at the moment and as soon as it goes live, I'll be sure to inform you. Otherwise, I'll keep updating this journal as news comes in.

Comment on this journal if you're still alive and 3Ding!

A note from Cymae:

Several individuals and 3D groups here on DeviantArt have tried to launch their own chats, which have met with various degrees of success, staying active for a while then dying.

Chat by J-Works

Currently, there really aren't any active chatroom where you can discuss and get help on 3D work.

That's why The 3D Chat has been created.

This chatroom doesn't advertise any specific groups, and will hopefully become a hub for all 3D artists, and use members from many different groups to administrate and keep it active.

Loaded up the top are various useful articles, tutorials and resources so that you can still get help and inspiration even when there's nobody else there.

We're also looking to add mentors, experienced 3D artists willing to give critique and advice in real time chat!

Cymae's looking for some active people willing to join in the chat and help moderate it.

Come have a look!

Oops! I submitted my last image to "Featured" by accident. Can someone please move it to the proper category for me, or let me know and I will resubmit? Sorry guys! It's a character render in Lightwave.
lolatmyself23 Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Actually, I tried to resubmit to characters but it won't let me because it exceeds my 1 sub limit per day. So please someone move it to the right place for me? Thanks!
