Good day to all!
I posted this in General Support, but didn't get a reply. Guess that may have been the wrong forum.
I'm looking for a well detailed flea - yup, a flea. Will need to be near-photo-realistic, but I don't have lots of money - of course.
I found one on TurboSquid, but it was without maps and for 3ds.
I've checked TS, Flay and 3D Cafe.
Are there any other places where one might purchase Lightwave models? Thanks for all advice and ideas! -mjr

I don't have one, but wouldn't the TS 3ds one do - after all, you can use .3ds files into modeler. Or do you mean it was a .max file?

I can't imagine it would need much in the way of texture maps. I'd have thought a bit of a dk brown shading with maybe some fractal noise would do the job.

TS is probably going to be the cheapest source, otherwise you might want to look at the digimation site. But that is likely to be expensive.

xtrm3d: No budget. It's not even a spec project yet. Just an idea that I had that might make some money for me way down the line.
I still have you in mind to help model a few upcoming projects, though.
mkiii: You are probably right. I could use it. But I kind of thing that for photo-real fleas, I may need pro-made maps. But if I can't find anything better, I may go with the TS model.
Basically, I was looking for a site that I haven't heard about yet. Just looking for another sourse for quality models.

Thanks much! - mjr

There is a flea like model in the LW8 content if you have it, called bug.lwo I believe. It's pretty detailed, not a flea I don't think but close.

I think you are refering to the dustmite model proton did right. a flea is more like thishttp://www.buf.fr/IMG_WORK/1994.Feature/LaCitdesEnfantsPerdus_d/IMAGES/CITE/puce.3.jpg
