Speed Modeling Challenge #57 - Camping.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

************************************************** *******
Rules:
1: Every week there will be a subject for you to model along with a time limit. You should spend no longer than the allocated time, then post a render of your model. As in most challenges like this, your honesty on modelling times is essential.
How you interpret the brief is up to you as long as the final model conforms to what is asked for.

2: Post a render of your model (min 800x600 pixels) in this thread with a wireframe.

3: LightWave should be used for modelling. 3rd party Plug ins are allowed.

4: You can enter as many times as you like, posting each in this thread. If you run over the time, the model can still be posted but won't be subject to the judging.

5: Time spent on texturing, setting up a scene for a render and rendering is not included in the allocated period.

**Please mention whether or not you would be happy to share the model.**

************************************************** *******
Lightwave Speed Modeling Group

Interpret as you will; tents, feather boas, guy-ropes, gold lamé jumpsuits, favourite fire-poking stick... you get the idea!

Time Limit - 60 minutes.

Aaaah, Buckfast: L.A. takedown in a bottle. And apparently good for you too... if the label is to be believed! ~8-S

Ace start Richard; awesome detail in there. :thumbsup:

I never go camping without this essential. Almost as important as the booze and the sausages!

30 minutes modelling. Ages on the render!

I'm not going to have time for this, but if I did, I'd attempt a fishing rod.
Or maybe a sausage on a stick.

Great models, btw.

I had been thinking of a marshmallow on a stick :D

that's too easy for you ;)

R.Feeney
09-29-2009, 12:09 PM
Could be :D

AdamAvenali
09-29-2009, 12:19 PM
yes mr. feeney. if you want to do anything related to a marshmallow it must either be an entire marshmallow factory or the marshmallow man from ghostbusters cooking a marshmallow on a stick :D

R.Feeney
09-29-2009, 12:23 PM
Yes The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man impaled on a stick, not really camping but maybe a little camp :D

Well I've found some reference, but I'm not sure I can get it done in 1 hr.
Going to tackle summat at lunch break tomorrow, but I may have to resort to a non-textured object, maybe even a half-finished one at that! :p

Here's my entry.

Every camping venture has got to have at least one of these.

A can of Pork and Beans - NewTek Brand!!

I know it's simple, but I enjoyed thinking up and doing it.

Just about 20 minutes modeling, and an hour or so tweaking the surfaces, creating the label.

Render - about 1 minute.

colkai

Arrghh, ran over by 10 mins and still not complete, serves me right I suppose, should of done a pup tent. ;)
Still, once I surface it, it may look better :p

This is a Dandy folding camper, many a good time had when we went camping in this. :)

Apologies for my lateness folks; been a little tied up with a few things.

Not many entries this week, but very decent quality in what was entered - grand stuff! :thumbsup:

This weeks winner is going to have to be R. Feeney, for his folding shovel. Efficient modelling, with different angles and sharpnesses in what appears to be an all sub-d gig with no pinching; lovely stuff there Richard. :thumbsup:

Honourable mentions:
Adam A for his bottles - efficient lines and great technique for the crimping on the caps.

Colkai, for the camper - ace effort, good mix of modelling disciplines.

And also to JamesCurtis and Iain, for thinking of the essentials!

So congrats to Richard, and well done all.

Thanks Flakester.
The shovel (http://www.newtek.com/forums/showpost.php?p=931482&postcount=192) is available for download in the free models thread (http://www.newtek.com/forums/showthread.php?t=101465)
The Newtek beans made me smile and colkai`s folding camper looks great.
So who wants to run this weeks challenge, I don't think there was a winner picked in the comics one.

Congrats Richard-well deserved again. That is a really nice looking little model, simple but efficient.

I'll do the next one if no-one minds:

I'm going back to scratch now and build a "proper" version of the Dandy, should be fun, in a masochistic kinda way. :p

a little update on the cap surface and a little less saturation overall. it was really bothering me in the original render haha
