Speed Modeling Challenge #94 - Toy story

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 modeling 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 modeling. 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: Toy story

Since Toy story 3 is hiting the silverscreen I thought it could work as a topic for this challange.

Andy have his favourite toy Woody, I had my black Lotus F-1 "John Player Special" driven by the swede Ronnie Pettersson.
It still sitts in my parants garage, 35 years later.

What was your favorite toy, and what does it do?
So of and create your favorite childhood toy or perhaps you have a better one that sitts in your livingroom or garage?

Time Limit - 60 minutes

Deadline - Sunday 12 September 2010, 2200 GMT

Oh man, my favorite toy as a kid will suck for this. On the bright side its still my favorite toy. Books can be classified as toys right?

Hmm, other toys, chemistry set, telescope, refrigerator boxes made into spaceships. First computer, a home made PET, complete with a keyboard in a plywood box made with a handsaw and nails. Man I was a demented, but not sad kid. No wonder I never had any friends.

Hehe, I can use the same one of some challenges ago: LEGO. The other thing was a Commodore 128 :D.

My favorite toy when I was a kid was Mister Machine!!

You see, I'm in my mid 50's that's how far back I go as a kid. Anyway, I'd love to be able to model it, but it's definitely more than an hours work.

It's ironic that about six months ago I was checking web page links and images for references to it. I don't have the toy anymore. My grandmother gave it away to someone. Pity too, because the toy would have been worth a couple hundred dollars or more now as a collectible.

looks very nice

09-07-2010, 01:05 PM
Thanks guys :)
I had one that looked vaguely like that many years ago, nothing but a mangled rusting pile of metal now though

09-07-2010, 02:59 PM
Nice one Richard!

This was my first (and only) skateboard.
It was made of fibreglass and the board itself was really narrow. A bugger to stay on all in all, but I loved it.
An hour to model, aaaages to texture............

09-07-2010, 03:06 PM
Ooooooh...that is sexy :thumbsup:


09-07-2010, 03:10 PM
Thats freaking sweet!!

09-07-2010, 03:20 PM
My favorite toys were always in the form of a rectangular box :P

09-07-2010, 03:23 PM
Thanks Kuzey/Richard.:thumbsup:

I had to go all out to make it look interesting :D

09-07-2010, 04:21 PM
looks more than interesting pal
looks brilliant :)

09-07-2010, 05:09 PM
Iain: this is my last call for a tut on textures (not)! Impressive work.

I had 3 skateboards in total. The last one was really great with customized grip and all :).

09-08-2010, 12:13 PM
Thanks! Another view...........

09-08-2010, 01:50 PM
That is one sweet texture work ian.

Totally amazing.

09-08-2010, 02:46 PM
I 2nd that. Mr. Feeney and he should team up and share some of their texturing gifts ;)

on the side:
Dunno if you've seen "Kat" Meyers video tuts ? He puts his practical knowledge in a tut.. amazing stuff! Just got the 2nd Adv.SpaceScene vol.
Looking forward to dive into that..

Iain: this is my last call for a tut on textures (not)! Impressive work.

09-08-2010, 04:01 PM
Well.. I guess this is it then... I would have to say that Ian and R.Feeney are the ones that have manage to capture the iron fisted judge Salv8orīs eyes the most.

But from where I sit I think that although the skateboard is awesome and I owned one just like that but it was black, the winner would have to be..............

Mr. R.Feeney for his well executed tricycle.

Congrats m8.

09-08-2010, 04:18 PM
congratulations Richard well done :)

09-08-2010, 04:22 PM
Well done Richard..that's two in a row..haha :thumbsup:

I just don't know what Iain has to do to win one...maybe a texturing/lighting tutorial on the skateboard :hey:

Amazing work all around!


09-08-2010, 04:59 PM
Cheers guys, I didnt think I had a chance against Iains Skateboard :)

Next challenge is up (http://www.newtek.com/forums/showthread.php?t=112195)

09-08-2010, 06:17 PM
Congrats to both. I'm very happy that I don't have to chose the winner here between them.

Iain... Tut (yes, again)!

09-09-2010, 09:13 AM
My skateboard is quite a simple model and having made a trike like that before, I know how difficult it is!

Congrats Richard :thumbsup:
