Speed Modeling Challenge #88 - July 4

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: July 4

To some, this means fireworks and flags and parades and barbecues. To others, there are other holidays and birthdays. Show us your ideas, explosive or otherwise!

Time Limit - 60 minutes.

Deadline - Wednesday 7th July 2010, 2200 GMT

Heh. Lamest contest ever!

But the entries were good.

oliversimonnet, that rocket just has so much personality for something built out of simple shapes!

Iain, excellent concept and render. The modeling showed some subtle artistry, in the imperfect way such paper rolls.

I'll throw it to Iain, for making the paper with thickness. It really helped in the render.

Heh. Lamest contest ever!

Even you didn't enter! :D
It happens, especially at summer/xmas holiday times etc.

I'll throw it to Iain, for making the paper with thickness. It really helped in the render.

Thanks-I deserve it for the detail on that quill alone! (ok it's a clip map.) Not as easy a subject as you would think for inspiration but I enjoyed making my scrolls.

Anyway, nice work Iain...I wonder what idea you'll come up with next :D
