Speed Modeling Challenge #79
*************************************************
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.**

This week's topic: "The Old West"

This is posted on behalf of Kuzey who isn't around at the moment. (Shrox's idea too so I'm really just the middle man!)
The Old West-Stetsons, horses, saloons, guns, you get the idea.......

Time Limit - 60 minutes.

Longer deadline due to the late start:
Deadline - Wednesday 21st April 2010, 2200 GMT

Only the coin and the barrel were within the time limit so I'm not going to bother with wireframes considering the simplistic nature. I had hoped to at least get a little more stuff into the scene, but I'm posting a render anyway.

Cool topic! It's too late now, but I'll give it a go tomorrow.

Nice models btw! chco2, yours reminds me of a Counterstrike map I used to play with some of my co-workers.... ahhh good times :).

Cool-what did you get?
My computer packed up too and I got my first ever laptop. I'm a hobbyist now so a quad core portable jobby is just perfect. (Means I can play while nodding to the wife's comments as she watches telly.)

Alright, here's my model: a dusty pair of boots. Well they're not dusty yet, but ill see if I can solve that tomorrow.

I stopped modeling at 60 minutes.

Nice model, Traveler.

Personally I'd beef up that spur but maybe it's a Cowgirl's boot?

Deceptively simple, chco2.
How did you round the star if you don't mind me asking?

chco2
04-13-2010, 04:20 AM
Of course I don't mind, just embarrassed to say it was simply the rounder tool :)

Thanks Ian and JR_LW :)
I have no clue how big or small these spurs need to be. One image I found, also had pretty small ones. (link (http://home.att.ne.jp/orange/knights/Boot%20Spurs%20Fit%20Right.jpg))

Anyway, I've put the boots into 3dCoat for some texturing. I could not get the specularity right though. In 3dCoat its there, but LW pretty much ignores it, or so it seems...

What!? I grew up in Arizona, and I wear black cowboy boots everyday!

Actually, I never wore spurs, we owned a few horses. Working spurs are usually pretty short, Saturday night dancing spurs might be longer.

I like these challenge models, reminds me of Tombstone and Old Tucson.

So I think I bit off more then I could handle on this one. My attempt at a saloon was not how I was hoping it would turn out, if only I had 2 hrs. :)

Wasn't able to get the detail I wanted, and the texture was very kinda blah.

Atleast it gave me a chance to get a lil modeling in.

Wittywop, you should maybe just have concentrated on the entrance.

A lot of people maintain procedural textures are great but I usually steer clear of them, particularly for timber.
A good photo would kill the texturing for this in seconds.

I can send you some if you want.

Iain, why don't you put them on PresetCentral so everybody can benefit from them :)

I dont normally submit, and the quality of the entry should tell you why! But I always thought it would help improve my weak skills...so I am going to make an effort.
20 mins model, 15mins texture 20 mins render

Traveler
04-16-2010, 01:46 AM
But that's really not bad at all blindsided. I like it :thumbsup:

I was interrupted several times while making this so I don't know exactly how long it took, but I feel confident it was within the time limit.

The dial numbers and lines are the only thing I didn't get modeled and I think doing so might push me over the time limit.

Hopefully I can get some texturing done in the next couple of days to add to this.

Hi everyone!
I kinda liked the idea of these speedmodeling competitions so i decided to join in. This is my first try (and my first post to NT forums! :thumbsup:), i kinda missed "the point" with this one so i think im gonna do another model too.

I hope the images are showing up. Im bit lost how to add them (i used the insert image button).. :D

e: bit of hassle, now they should work! :help::help:

Hey, those are pretty good! A stick of dynamite is all thats missing, Shnoze Shmon :)

Welcome to the forums Wrshredder!

Good stuff guys!
I'll try to get another done before tomorrow.

Shrox-where's your entry?

I didn't think I could enter since it was my suggestion. Guess I'll try something.

You can always enter in fact as far as the (lack of) rules go, you could even win but awarding yourself victory is always a bit suspect!

Thanks mate!

Iain

Sorry for the late reply-it's a bit of a one man show here at the moment and I actually don't have any free time!

Anyway, despite many excellent entries (and its great to see some cool first time attempts,) Traveler's cowboy boot takes this one.

Excellent economical modelling there!
Well done!

Iain
