Enter the world of 3D Pinups!
Greetings everyone!

Perhaps one of the most complex features of a human being is the face - there are so many subtle expressions that convey a million shades of emotion.

Often at CG Pin Ups we receive images that have an emotionless face attached to a beautiful pin up pose.  Thinking that just adding a little personality to that face would make that character leap off the screen and really "come alive!"  :)

How much more engaging a person who smiles at you, for instance, than someone who's face is flat and expressionless.  Even someone who's face has a quirky expression is more interesting than one that is deadpan.  I know that fashion glamor these days often (not always) push that kind of neutrality - but we have to remember that typically those models are only the "rack" to showcase the clothing Designer's latest work, they aren't encouraged to add personality.

Let's challenge ourselves to try adding a little something, a little personality to our characters, whether its drama, positivity, smoldering, haughty, flirtatious or quirky.  And help make our characters that much more interesting and engaging. :D  

One suggestion is to use an expression package and change it a little to make it something unique, something that is our own. You can also try mimicking your facial expression by holding up a mirror and then replicating it on screen.  ;)

CG PINUPS is dedicated to CG (computer generated) 3D PINUPS.

If you already use:

DazStudio, Poser, 3D MAX, MAYA, C4D, ZBRUSH and other 3d programs you are welcome to join us and post your best pin up work. We accept only 3D rendered character works with 3D programs. Please avoid posting "works in progress" images as they may be declined - instead we would like to see your best finished artwork.

What we're looking for in a pin up
All models should have a focused or highly suggestive allure or appeal to the viewer. Though eye contact is not mandatory, a coy turn of the head or sultry look will add to the appeal. Generally speaking and specific to this group, fight scenes, distraught or despairing expressions or looks of great hostility and violence are typically not alluring and will detract from an image being added to this group.


• Gigantic Muscle female (as in ridiculous proportions) and toned with some muscle definition is fine)
• Gigantic Breast female (as in ridiculous proportions)
.......those naturally well-endowed or busty are fine
• Porn (see or violence
• Racialist works
• Humiliating


• All Contributors must have 3D pin up works in their gallery.
Otherwise their Contributor request will decline.

• If you submit an image, you cannot vote for it yourself.

• If you don't have any or very few 3D works, you're welcome to still join us as a member.

Being a Contributor at CG Pinups is more than just submitting your work to our galleries, the hope is that you will also vote on others' works, leave helpful comments to help artists improve - be involved in promoting the group on the site, finding artwork on deviantart that fits the profile of the quality we're trying achieve. Otherwise, if you're only looking to submit artwork, we would suggest "member" status would be more appropriate.


• CGPINUPS is not a stock group. Please do not use our member's works in your works without permission.

• If you need help, feel free to write our admins.

• We are a community that is based on respect for each other as artists, *always* maintain kindness and respect in what and how we communicate with each other.

Inappropriate images may be removed at the Founder's discretion.

Happy rendering!
