Speed Modeling Challenge #81 - What's hiding under the bed?

*************************************************
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.

*************************************************

This week's topic: "What's hiding under the bed?"

It's time to show your monster! Big or small, tentacles instead of arms, three or more eyes? Does it walk on two legs, 6, 8 or perhaps none at all? Lot's of possibilities here :) Good luck!

Time Limit - 90 minutes.

Deadline - Wednesday 12th May 2010, 2200 GMT

Hm, has been a long time since I've joined in one of these, so figured I'd have a play.. Went the old-fashioned monster under the bed route.

Dunno about you people, but I have nightmares about spiders...

No proper render yet - texture and lighting will come soon.
Modelling time approx 75mins..

I wish I could model this week. This one sounds like fun.

But for what it's worth ... This is what I have hiding under my bed... I just hope the monster doesn't get it first.

Wow... that came out great! I actually like the render like this but I'm sure it would look slick with realistic textures too! :thumbsup:

Pretty cool. I was toying with the idea of getting one of these (in black):

But I never owned a firearm and not sure how I feel about having one in the house with children, etc. It does look friggin' cool though. :D

It's a 115 lumen light attached to the mag extender (8 shots total). Lasers are for sissies ;-) Plus, lasers are pointless when you can't see the bastard walking around your house at night in the dark.

I use only slugs. If I have to pull the trigger, I want to make sure there's only one side of the story when the cops get here.

Benelli's are tough as nails, last a lifetime, and worth every penny. I actually didn't have any firearms in the house until my two boys were old enough to know better (14 and 17 yrs.) And they have now both taken gun safety courses. If you have young ones, I wouldn't recommend having them. Even under lock and key - they're smart and curious, and that's all it takes to have an accident.

Anyway - sorry to derail the thread.. On with the show!

Thanks :)
I started with a flat 8 sided disk, beveled it out for a tentacle copied that for all the rest of them, welded the points to join them together then capped the center hole and extruded the outer edges to continue up the "body".

ooof Richard, that is nightmarish! It's maybe a bit aquatic but the eyes and the teeth are a striking combination.

R.Feeney
05-07-2010, 09:50 AM
Cheers Iain, there was going to be a set of bat-like wings on there too but time ruled that out, I think that might have reduced the aquatic look a wee bit.

Do it, make it creepy, not logical.

Aye when it comes to the things that crawl out from the dark corners of the room on the edge of sleep logic really has little influence.
But this one is done as is, for now at lest :sleeping:

I love this topic! it reminded me of Monsters & co, one of my favorite movies!
anyway, modeling time bout 80 minutes and another hour to texture. Still have loads of ideas I already sketched out..
oh and great entries Voriax and Richard, very nightmarish indeed :thumbsup:

Kinda cute but I still wouldn't want to find it under my bed

thanks! I was hoping for more entries though, with such a cool idea...I'll see if I can do a little something tonight :D

It often happens that way with the more organic challenges, I think some find it a bit harder to do.

I had to jump in. I've been out of the challenges for too long.

I saw this challenge as two areas of creativity: Monsters, and normal, under-bed items. With a possible perverted joke in there.

I did a mashup.

It would be very disturbing indeed to discover a copy of Playglorb magazine under the bed, particularly with a glowing blob of discharge on the centerfold page...

Nangleator
05-12-2010, 08:37 AM
Oh, about 15 minutes modeling the centerfold, and about 30 minutes modeling the bedroom scene.

Nangleator
05-12-2010, 08:51 AM
Oh, and wires for the other part.

Check out the Snorgles on her. She's totally ready to blimpf!

Great stuff Nangleator! Loving the imagination :thumbsup:

Nice idea Nangleator! I never thought something like that would appear as an entry.

I've tried to come up with something, but I'm afraid it turned out less creative than what I had in mind. Also, after I had modeled the room, bed and tentacle (just one, the others are clones) I pretty much spent the rest of the evening getting the lighting right :D. And that's no easy task at all :bangwall:

Here's what I have after 3 hours toying with settings.

I've misbehaved before. 3 or so entries (http://www.newtek.com/forums/showthread.php?t=101824) in the Back to School challenge...

I like your lighting and your set decoration. Could be a touch brighter, but it's got a really good cartoon feel to it.

Wonderful entries this week. The first, with the spider legs creeped me out the most.

So I am not sure where the week went but here is my entry.

I tried to get the light under the bed not to shine out as far. but for some reason the fall off didn't work right. still pretty happy how everything came out.

Any comments would be appreciated.

Good job Wittywop! The light under the bed really adds to the scene.
The cover on the bed, has a bit too many poly's imo, while the tentacles could perhaps benefit from a bit more detail. Still, :thumbsup: job.

And yes, if I could choose, voriax' entry would be my pick too.

Still waiting for this though :D
