Ok, so here's my dilemma. I used to use Google Sketchup as my main 3D modeling software for things like Airships, & other machine/ mechanisms. However, I've stopped using it because current versions require a license to use. & those can cost $500 USD to get. I don't want to spend that kind of money for a 3d program. Now, I'm not trying to be a mainstream 3d modeler or anything, or even if I was I wouldn't be selling my content to major distributors. But I do want to be able to use them in, say, my youtube videos & not have to worry about ANY potential legal/ financial disputes. Yesterday, I downloaded Sculptris, which is a great program but it's not what I'm looking for currently. I need a software that functions similarly to Sketchup, is free to download, & free to use the content I create in it for commercial use. Are there any softwares like this I could look into?

P.S. If nothing else, can you use the program 3DVIA Shape for commercial use? It doesn't say on the website, & I can't find anything that says you can/cannot. But if you can, it's exactly what I'm looking for.

Thank you for taking time to read this. Be sure to leave a response, if you can, in the comments bellow.

Thanks again

Tarkaria: Sengine of Riverport by vcubestudios
Tarkaria: Sengine of Riverport
Arguably one of the most famous, & charismatic figures in Hollow Earth lore. Sengine is a Jarl from the town of Riverport, a city roughly the size of Saint Louis, deep in the Hyperborean region of the main continent. Currently, she is 1256 years old, as of 2014, and is still going strong. (In a later post, I'll explain how the Hyperboreans accomplished biological immortality, converted every neuron in their body to have the additional ability to store memories, & other wonders in Hyperborean genetic engineering)

Now the story of Sengine starts in the year 753 AD. It was about 3 years after the Hyperboreans (elves) & Hypabeiatans (dwarves) engaged in conflict that took 100 years to get started. Shortly after the war ended, 750 AD, Theiodeth, Queen of Hyperborea, had been spending a large portion of time with Arenbal, son of the King of Hypabeiata who took power as Prince after Theiodeth killed his father in battle. They mostly spent time together aiding in rebuilding Hypabeiata, which had been ravaged in war time. Long story short, he claimed his place as King by marrying the now admitted love of his life, Theiodeth. & their bonding would soon join Hyperborea & Hypabeiata.

Naturally, some were upset by this union. The bulk of which was a group of Hyperborean women, who sought to distance themselves from this new order. Now Hyperboreans are notorious for modifying their genes to get certain points across. & so, through Advance Stage Genetic Modification (think a more radical version of Gene therapy), a new race was born, characterized by green/blue eyes, blonde hair, & freckled skin. They became known as the Agotherians.

Sengine, though born into a clan of Agotherians in the 5th Generation, did not share any of the "races" ideals. After living amongst them for twenty-six years, she was sent into exile. Presumably because of false abuse allegations made up by members of her original camp. Though we may never know for sure, she was on her own & settled down in a small cabin deep in the swamps just along the Hyperborea/ Hypabeiata border.

She remained there for about two years, before she was visited, unexpectedly, by a man named Oriah, a lawyer from the town of Riverport many miles away. He told her that he, & a small collection of Hyperborean & Hypabeiatan travelers were on their way to a location where supposedly the Black Blade anarchy party had hidden a vast wealth of Hyperborean treasure stolen from Hyperborea just before the war. Hoping to get it circulating into the economy once again, the government stated that whoever found it could use it & spend it as they pleased. It should come as no surprise that Sengine jumped on Oriah's offer to join them.

After finding the treasure, the two were married & bought the run-down village of Riverport, only to turn it into a thriving metropolis rivaled only by the Hyperborean Capitol itself. But it also became a focal point for Agotherian protesters. After all, how could an Agotherian, of all people, build an economic stronghold that supported savage, war hungry dwarves? It was a mess that lead to many riots, & discussions on the true meaning of equality. But through years of pacifistic approach, well chosen words, & a demeanor that could only be described by some as "motherly with a bit of bite to it" (Jerry Baltimore), Sengine was successful at calming the riots down, & getting dwarves & Agotherians to see each other as equals once again.  

Today, Sengine & Oriah are still together, living happily as Jarls over Riverport, now a gem in the crown of Hyperborea & Hypabeiata alike. To date, they have had well over 35 children, & recent reports as of 2011 states that she is pregnant with her  36th. May she be as happy as here brothers & sisters before her.

Tarkaria: Ornithosapian Former by vcubestudios
Tarkaria: Ornithosapian Former
Ornithosapians (AKA Dinosauroids) are creatures inspired by the Dinosauroid Hypothesis proposed by Paleontologist Dale Russell in the late 70's. As a kid I was always intrigued by this & decided to add them to my mythos. Now I would like to point out that because the Hollow Earth is not a "perfect" science fiction world, naturally these creatures have become subjected to anthropomorphism, as I refer to it. I don't consider them "furries",  but I wouldn't be shocked if people began calling them that. So in that regard, I have a quote that you can take for what you will. "Though it is a piece of art, and you are free to interpret it in anyway you like, understand that that view point may not be what I, the creator, had intended". So, now that that's all done, on to the bio.

Ornithosapians are the sole surviving relics of the age of dinosaurs in the Cenozoic Era. They evolved in North America from a small species of theropod dinosaur called a Troodon. It survived the KT catastrophe that killed off the dinosaurs, and began pursuing mammals in the forests of Paleocene & Eocene North America. Because of this, certain features began to appear. The inner, sickle shaped claw has started to shrink. In order to hunt prey in the trees, as large birds & crocodiles dominated the ground at this time, they evolved more maneuverable shoulder and hip girdles. & elongated fingers better designed for grabbing prey & branches.

What we see in the image above is a creature brought about by the earth's changing climate. The up-right posture had evolved as a means of looking over grass & shrub-like vegetation taking over the continent at this time, but may have been carried over from their life in the trees. The feathers have mostly gone away, if not completely in some regions. This species may be from the south western portion of the continent.

Despite being a transitional form from the primitive members of the Ornithosapians & the more advanced species that came later, this particular variety are already capable of complex social structures, language, & even conceptual thinking.

Tarkaria: Aroura Jarl of Ahi by vcubestudios
Tarkaria: Aroura Jarl of Ahi
The Ahi-Bay is a major port that which enables trade in Northern Hyperborea. & the chief of such a port is Jarl Aroura. Now, just so you know, Jarls in the Hollow Earth fulfill a similar to a mayor here on the surface. Except one may has control over as many as ten to fifteen towns as opposed to just one. At any case, Aroura is the best candidate for such a position. Although very friendly & welcome to newcomers in her parts, she has been known to be extremely persuasive to incoming business & tradesmen. Her incredible powers of negotiation, deception to some, may be due to her Serian heritage, who are also known for being persuasive maritime traders. She often boasts of her mother's Serian (former Atlantean) bloodline, yet her hair doesn't seem to fit the typical colors of Serian hair, which is usually either brown or black. But it's likely a trait from her father, who was a Neanderthal.

Tarkaria: Brachiosaurus by vcubestudios
Tarkaria: Brachiosaurus
Got a little bored, so I drew this up. I don't know if I should call this accurate or not, though. I did kinda rush through the sketch process, but I DID have an accurate reference to look at. So, I don't know. I'll let you decide. Regardless, I think this came out pretty good for just a quick doodle.
