Turbosquid links will be forthcoming….

I’m currently in the process of extracting links to all my turbosquid files that exist prior to today and converting them in to html links that I can load up here in the blog. The next several posts will contain the links.

Why, you might ask am I doing this since people can currently go over to Turobsquid and just browse my stuff…

Simple answer to that is because I want to refer to some of that stuff in future posts here, and also maybe give more explicit commentary on the individual files then Turbosquid allows. For instance Turbosquid itself does not like artists to put ways for people to contact them inside of the descriptions of assets on Turbosquid… Turbosquid’s database system is neat, but a little dated… so tagging is not always done the best way over there as it’s limited to x amount of spaces, etc. Tagging here in the blog, I seem to be able to have a lot more abilities then over there.

I currently have over 9000 assets on Turbosquid, so this might take several postings to do. I do plan to put some commentary in to some of the postings giving a little more info about stuff then the turbosquid system itself does.

I’m also doing this because I ultimately want every one of my online assets to be linked to in this blog. Since there’s so many assets over there already, this helps me moving foward since I can cross reference stuff from my blog here, my future portfolio website, and other creative online endeavors I plan to undergo someday.

Some might call this spam, but I hope you understand that it’s not really. The idea here is to document what I have online already, and moving forward, create just as much comprehensive descriptions and links to new works… slowly building my own creative online empire of artwork more or less. It’s something that will take time to do, but this way of doing it is massively faster then the individual linking process I was planning to do a few days back that would have literatlly taken months instead of days…

I want to be able to cross reference stuff on Turbosquid to non-Turbosquid stuff that I have online, have the ability to have people that like my work contact me directly, and do a lot of other things that this will allow me to do in the future, which Turbosquid’s limited functionality cannot provide. I like TS, will continue to use it, and suggest others do likewise, but just feel it’s time to do a lot more then I have done over there, and am limited by what I can do there, so it’s time to bring the there over to here a lot more… Similarly, I’ll be doing likewise with Zazzle, my portfolio website, and maybe even other sites and projects I’ll be working on in the future… This blog is about re-creating MY online identy.

This sort of huge project is just one small part of doing that. I’m trying to take more control of what I create, and can do online. I’m trying to bring the various pieces of my scattered shatters of the online MY back together in to one ME, fully united… that’s what the links in the turbosquid urls that I”m going to post are about… That’s what almost all of my postings here are about… I want and need to be an individual artist not some random, unidentified person out there in cyberspace with millions of shattered pieces orbitting the earth, like space junk that has no purpose anymore… I want to be me, Jeff Thomann, and this is all what part of me trying to do that is about…
