  1. I've seen groups like these, and even individuals who sport this sort of badge on their products, and even belong to groups regarding this. What exactly is an 'original mesh'? I consider an original mesh to be a piece that is concepted by, modeled by, and presented by the artist himself, albeit 'their' style and finished piece inspired by everything around them and their life experience. However, these individuals and groups seem to want to apply "100% original mesh" to mesh pieces that simply replicate already existing products from the real-world, some even going so far as to put the actual brand names on the textures for the objects they create... Considering it is very easy for a '3D Artist' to simple 'trace' from a photograph, or even model directly from it.. where is the actual orginality? One day I opened up Illustrator and 'traced' a snapshot of my avatar, in a pose from in-game that I did not create myself, and saved the resultant product as a 'work'. Is it really original? Well the avatar design might be, the clothes I chose (even those aren't mine either)... Is the resultant vector file and 'original work', or just a reproduction into vector form of an existing artwork? The difference is, I wouldn't present it as an 'original work'. The awesome thing about SL, and the VALUE one offers to users of it will be, will be in your creativity in presenting an object. There are more than enough crates, barrels and park benches out there - one would think why bother modeling those again? Now modeling a park bench out of metal plumbing pipes, welded onto bicycle frames at either end, concepted (through sketches and scribblings) by the artist themselves, then modeled to that, could certainly qualify as "100% original mesh". I prefer using 'unique design' or 'innovative design' rather than '100% original" because as an artist, I am the sum of all the sights, sounds and experiences in my life, and everything goes into a big pot, gets stirred and churned and matured, and comes out in the form of a mental library in which I can create new works. Going to the IKEA catalogue and replicating all the trendy furniture in it, uploading the model and textures (sometimes with a brand name or gaming the system using brand-like names), then claiming it is an 'original mesh".. well that's a pretty loose definition... Perhaps instead of using 'badges' or icons or claims in your listings and telling us how original you are... How about SHOW us. Have a good day, hope you're inspired to go that one (or two) extra steps in your creations. PS. Other thoughts: Do most consumers care about creativity and originality? Or do they want products in VR that may not be able to get in RL? What's the line drawn when it comes to claiming work as your own or 'original' anyway?
