Pinterest is the fastest growing social media site reporting over 11 million unique users since its launch in 2010. What is Pinterest, exactly? It is a pin board-styled photo sharing website, allowing users to create and manage theme-based image collections. The site's mission is to "connect everyone in the world through the 'things' they find interesting."

3D is a growing interest to the pin board site with queries specific to a wide range of 3D related topics. Some queries have a large array of results and others are just catching on, but users can count on Pinterest to share artwork that is interesting and creative related to 3D gaming, animation, and software.

For example, take a look at the collection of artwork listed under the keyword 3D Character:

Collection of Pinterest 3D artwork

Pinterest already has a full page of 3D related information and Pinners continue to add new items to share their likes and interests. An even larger collection of pins can be found under the keyword 3D Design. 3D Models is another growing category, and there is a complete collection of 3d content listed under the keyword 3D animation.

What is incredibly great about sharing 3D work on Pinterest is that a specific design can be a part of many different categories. So, a Pin could be picked up by users outside of the animation community, and really start a trend. With so many Pinners interested in 3D, putting ideas and artwork on the board allows other pinners to enjoy and share the same 3D designs. Everyone has different variations of a common interest and Pinterest is an excellent platform to showcase it all.

Rango - Best Animated Feature Film in 2012

A 3D animated children’s film, Rango, recently won the 2012 Academy Awards for the best Animated Feature Film, this kind of news shouldn’t take long to become ‘Pintastic.’ I anticipate that the animation categories will become as viral as the Do It Yourself (DYI) categories. Pinners that are connoisseurs of DYI never hesitate to show off their hard work and 3D artists should be no different.

As mentioned earlier, options are endless with Pinterest and 3D artwork. Take a look at some of the possibilities and see if you can expand on them by sharing your work and ideas.
