[DAO: QmeYkwq] Add Sebastian Valla to the Wearables Curation Committee

by 0x9982b469910c2ee2ea566dcfcc250cdd34056397 (MrEric)


While the wearables editor allows anyone to create wearables for Decentraland Avatars, all submissions must be reviewed and checked for technical issues or obvious infringements of Decentraland’s content policies before they may be minted on Polygon and distributed. The Wearables Curation Committee was formed to help with this process.

There are currently only three individuals sitting on the Curation Committee, and the time and effort required to review submissions is exceeding their capacity.

To help guarantee that new wearables are reviewed and passed through the publication process in a timely manner, we need additional curation committee members.

The candidate

After the call for nominations, Sebastian Valla was nominated:

"Sebastian is Wonderzone’s Art Lead and wearables designer. With a bachelor’s degree in 3D modeling and game design, Sebastian has been working as a professional 3D artist for the last 4 years. Since Decentraland’s launch in 2020, Sebastian has created over 10 different wearables collections for the Foundation and for Wonderzone. Notable examples include the Wonderbot, Outfit of Wonder, and the Materochaser collections.

Sebastian has also worked with numerous members in the community, helping to coach them through the creation and publication process. You can view Sebastian’s portfolio on Sketchfab."


On August 20th, 2021, the DAO approved a proposal to compensate each committee member with 50 MANA for every item they review.

Committee members are compensated per item reviewed (not hourly), and there are no hard time requirements. That being said, the current committee members are working between 10 and 20 hours per week. This workload is expected to change as the number of active committee members fluctuates.

Necessary qualifications

Curation Committee members must have previous experience that demonstrates their ability to provide high quality, technical feedback to creators. Specifically, committee members should have (at a minimum):

  • Practical experience with 3D modeling and animation
  • A full understanding of skin weighting
  • A full understanding of the 3D asset pipeline for Decentraland wearables as documented here
  • An understanding of the glTF asset pipeline
  • A general understanding of the Decentraland platform and Decentraland’s DAO
  • A general understanding of blockchain transactions and layer 2 solutions

Should Sebastian Valla be added to the Wearables Curation Committee?

  • Yes
  • No
  • Invalid question/options
