Hello there!
I am Margo Putzeys, a student Game- and Digital Design and I am currently doing my internship with Tale of Tales. I am still studying but I will be entering my Master year next schoolyear.
For my internship Auriea Harvey and Michael Samyn asked me if I wanted to work with the players and make models and concept art together. And with great pleasure I accepted this of course! This means you will be able to add art to the game!

But there are some 'rules' attached to this: If you make a 3D model, pleas send it as an .OBJ file to me. But a .Blender file ( Blender's file extension ) would be even better! But a .OBJ is good as well! As for the concept art you can send a photoshop file, PNG of JPEG.

So what can you make? Well it's like a set that the deers can wear in the game! This set includes: a mask, antlers and a pelt. Both made for the adult deer AND the baby deer. You can (if some of you know how and want to) texture these models by using a UV map. If you do texture them, send texture files as a PNG. ( PNG supports transparancy )
But of course you are never obligated to making more than you like. The meaning of this task is also for me to make stuff, so if you only would like to make the adult deer's models, that's fine by me. I can always texture them, add models, etc.

So if any of you are interested in putting your art or 3D models in the game. Send them to me and I can adjust them if necessary or take a look if something needs to be changed and so on.
You can of course also send your concept art to me and I can realise that concept art into a 3D model which may have a chance to be put in the actual game: The Endless Forest!

My e-mail adres is : Margo.Putzeys@gmail.com. I hope I will be hearing soon from you guys!!

Greetings,
Margo

Interesting.

I'd love to try to do textures, this is something to think about.

I may not play TEF like I used to, but I still love retexturing.

You can find retextures I've done here (not for TEF): http://rasiris.deviantart.com/gallery/41479270 More are here: http://kito.forum.com.bz/t93-draak-s-retextures Note that I DID NOT make the models, just the textures.

Hello Raz!

This topic is currently more active at: http://endlessforest.org/community/fan-art-game
If you want to texture pelts for example, I will be sharing the models of the adult and baby deer soon if M&A agree to it. After that you can texture the pelts for the deers if you like. There are a lot of examples on TEF community, so you can try those out :)

For now I suggest you chat with me on the link I just gave you because on this forum it's not really active.

Ah, I see. I have to apologise but I don't feel comfortable posting on the Community site due to personal reasons. But it is definately something I'll keep an eye on.

I can't wait until the models and uvs are released :D

It's no problem :) If the models and UV's are released you can see it on the community site tho. You don't have to reply. And if you create something feel free to send it to my e-mail adres : Margo.Putzeys@gmail.com :)

EDIT:
The meaning of this internship is that I do ALL the modeling and ALL of the texturing. I won't be giving the UV's or the models to players since I only request concept art of players! You can also point me towards already existing concept art. I pick which concepts I model and texture but in the end Auriea and MichaŽl decide which ones go into the actual game !!

If I remember correctly there was a large list of concept art in the old forums that had some pretty and creative sets, some of which were eventually put into the Forest.. Perhaps Raz could move it here for your viewing?

I think I've already seen those. But I don't mind if you post it here :)

Although I probably can't move it because I'm not a mod on this forum. All I can do is edit posts on the old forum and copy paste into here.

So I was looking through that old concept thread and yet again I found my favourite design:
