I am a freelance 3d modeller. I've been spending the past several weeks working on a 3d model of the Sacred 2 Seraphim set outfit "The Revelation of the Seraphim". From the beginning I've hoped to release this as a free model in Poser/OBJ format for any fans of the game and character to enjoy. I've been in touch with Carolyn Hacker since the start and requested permission from Ascaron to allow this - since Ascaron holds the copyright for the design of this costume, I can't distribute it in any form unless Ascaron permits me to. I am finished with the model, and I am still conferring with Carolyn about whether this will be allowed. If you want to help me make this fairly massive amount of work available to all of you, free of charge, then show your enthusiasm here!
Important note: This is NOT a modification of any Sacred/Sacred 2 game files! This is a standalone model, by fans for fans!
UPDATE: Ascaron has granted permission for me to distribute this model. Please note the responsibilities of downloading a copy of this model, these are LEGAL REQUIREMENTS:
- This model may be used for NON-COMMERCIAL USE ONLY
- Ascaron retains the copyright to this design
. © Ascaron 2009, this Poser model is based on the original Seraphim character design from the game "Sacred 2 - Fallen Angel".
- This model may not be redistributed by any means. If you modify this model or any part of it, you may not redistribute the result.

First, a little information about Poser for any who don't already know - Poser is a hobbyist-level 3D application aimed at producing human figure 3d images.
It is not free - it is not even cheap, unfortunately - but it is very popular, and it's how I make my meager living. There is a similar application that can read most files in Poser format that IS free, called DAZ|Studio:
This isn't intended to be a commercial for these applications, or a detailed discussion of what they do and a bunch of boring nonsense along those lines, I just want to provide some background for any who want to make use of this costume. There are many off-the-shelf human character figures available for these programs; the one that I chose to work with for this project was DAZ 3D's Victoria 4 figure, since she is extremely popular - not a value judgement on the merits of this or any figure, it was just a framework to build on that many other people are also likely to have access to.
OKAY, now that the dull stuff is out of the way! The first thing to do when beginning any project like this, whether 3d modelling or painting or whatever, is to collect a few reference images to work from, in the hope that your finished piece will bear at least some resemblance to the original.
