Speed Modeling Challenge #141 – Bookshelf stuff
************************************************** ***
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 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 wire-frame and a render at 800x600 or larger.
3. LightWave must 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 is: Bookshelf stuff.

Everybody has a bookshelf or a place with books/magazines on it. Well, what else do you place there? Show us those small gadgets, book-holders, clocks or even small art-pieces you have placed there. Books/magazines are allowed too, but not the obvious simple boxes with some texture maps :thumbsup:.

If you feel confident, design the whole bookshelf as well :).

Time Limit - 60 minutes.

Deadline: Wed. 12th October 2011. 22:00 G.M.T.

Well, funnily enough, in all my interior shots I now stock the bookshelves with old speed models :)

Its funny but I have spent a lot of time over the last few months pondering on bookcase design. Now that i have a place to call my own I have the space to put my unfeasibly large collection of books on display.

But I still haven't decided fully on what I want.
So in the meanwhile - art Deco inspired Bookends.

Nice work Richard!
Predictable I know but they're on everyone's bookshelf and I need a HQ 'coffee table' book. 30 minutes for far more detail than it will ever need...........

Keep your bookshelves empty!

Over time by about 30 mins, I had a lot of trouble with the buttons on the side. :bangwall:

I remembered seeing this stair somewhere after XSwampyX posted his funky design. No time for a render just now though

Some truly amazing work on here
A simple little model that I made a physical version of a few years ago. I needed some thing capable of supporting a large book like the inside Lightwave ones. Also works for holding up a laptop.

Wow, I have not been around in a while, but it is great to see these are still going strong! I am at the mid point of my current grad school quarter, but when I am done, expect my return :thumbsup:

Well, it's almost over for this challenge friends. I'll do the judging tomorrow if that's ok.

Richard, I think it's up to you to start the next challenge.

Great work folks :thumbsup:

Hi all,

We haven't got many entries this week, but we surely got some quality! Great work overall.

Without going into much detail due to lack of time (sorry):
3rd place: Richard with the sofa shelves, nice idea actually.
2nd place: XswampyX with the 'Lathe gone mad', a simple function, great results.
1st place: Iain with the detailed book. Very nice renders too. Congrats!

XswampyX: great job on the Kindle, although half an hour over time, I would spend hours on it and not even get close to this result!

Greetings,
Sigurd

Thanks for the comments COBRASoft, much appreciated!

Well done Iain, elegant modelling there and a terrific render. You have to be spot on with something so common as a book.

Thank you and thanks Sigurd for the win! I wasn't expecting that but yes after making sure I got the detail on the book right I looked at it and thought "Is that it?".

Problem with winning this one is that I'm away on holiday next week so I'll have to ask someone else to step in. Any volunteers?

Iain: Beauty in simplicity :D.

I'm sure you'll find a volunteer. If not, I can think of another challenge and step in if needed.

Nice work!

I'd really appreciate that-thanks :thumbsup:

Cheers Richard -I must get round to posting all of these on your excellent thread!
