What’s the hardest part about getting your first job as a Lighting Artist?
Finding good 3D models to light! After all, how can you demonstrate your ability to light if you don’t have a model to light!?!?
And let me guess...you’ve tried downloading models from other sites only to find the UVs out of whack or the normals all screwy. Now you are stuck spending days cleaning up someone else’s model before even beginning the lighting process.
That is where TDU comes in. We strive to provide you with the best models to practice all your lighting and texturing. We strive to provide you with fantastic, free assets to download and light right away!
Exclusive tdu assets ready for you to light!

What do I do after I light it?
Don’t be selfish with it...SHOW IT! Click the “Show It” link and you will be able to upload your image to our Work-In-Progress gallery.
Can I use it on my demo reel?
YES! That’s the whole point!!!
Because at the end of the day, our ultimate goal is to get you your dream job in VFX and Animation. That can only be achieved if you have a great reel. And you can only have a great lighting reel if you have great assets to light!
