I'm a 3d animator (currently contracting at DICE on Battlefield 3) and I also own a 1955 Chevy. Right now it's in primer and I'm trying to figure out what color to paint it. That's when I stumbled upon your great '55 convertible thread.
What I am wondering is how much would you charge to let me use your model to try out some different paint schemes before I paint the real car. It'd be personal, no profit use only and I wouldn't re-distribute the model or ever take credit for it.
I'd only share renders with full credit given and make the small modification of adding a roof (mine is a 2 door hardtop). I've been working as an animator in games for almost 10 years so I understand good portfolio etiquette. I'd just really love to be able to render out some different concepts before I commit a bunch of money to a real paint job. You can look me up on MobyGames.com or LinkedIn to see I'm legit. I can also send pictures of the real car, if you like.
