I would like to create some Tiki images using 3d rendering software and I was wondering if anyone has any 3ds files etc that I can use.
If not, does anyone have any great tiki images I can create my own 3d files out of?

Talofa Lava,Kia Orana & Aloha!, I've been making 3D photos for about 10 years now, just using a regular 35mm camera. You simply take a picture of your subject with your camera on it's side (portrait) making a mental note of the framing, then take a small step (about the width of your face) to either the left or the right, match the framing of the previous shot & take the picture. When you've developed your photos, place them side by side & you should have a stereo image! - it does help if you are able to view 'Magic-Eye' type images for this method. Otherwise you'll need to reduce the size of your images by at least 50 percent to see them via a stereoscope. It all sounds a bit complicated, but I've since moved to digital photography which makes taking 3D Photos so much more fun & faster!!. Using Adobe PhotoShop Elements (& an ability to 'free-view' )I'm able to combine the two pictures & make a 3D image in just minutes after taking the shot!
The are a few downsides to taking stereo photos without a stereo camera - wind, water & any moving object in the background hinder the 3D effect, otherwise you can get some fantastic results. Good Luck

Thanks for your response.
Though stereo pictures are another of my hobbies, I am referring to the creation of images of tiki using 3d software such as 3ds Max, Lightwave, etc.
I might have to create my own 3d representations of tikis but I hoped somebody might have already done it, such as in this post:

Thanks again!
