Speed Modelling Challenge #153 Xmas presents. What did you get?
*************************************************
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 : Xmas presents. What did you get ....? I will allow socks. :-) Come on make us all envious with your fantastic xmas present (If you didn't get what you wanted you can post that instead, I won't tell, honest!).

Time Limit - 90 minutes, I'll give you an extra 30 mins of nap time if you're hung over, or you have a really intricate present.

Deadline: Wed. 4th January 2012. 22:00 G.M.T.

I only got books for xmas with this pretty basic coffeemug as the exception... Decided to do the packaging as well since it would have been pretty boring if I hadn't :)

the modeling took me 65 minutes

I get a foot long Toblerone every year (titter ye not!). This year's was almost gone by the 27th-that's a lot of chocolate :D
40 minutes modelling.

Love the texturing of the toblerone Iain, you have obviously studied it in depth. ;D

Yep, it's instances. Nothing we couldn't do before using DP's great plug-in, but it's too easy now. Expect multiple models for the foreseeable future!

Great work.

Thanks-I did look very closely. Not entirely happy with the results though.

Loving your tinnies :thumbsup:

Lightwave didn't really like the fosters texture, came out all right in Octane. Must be a in some strange colourspace.

All entries are remarkable. Nice box ArtGoblin. Nice can XswampyX. The modeling efficiency is very nice on both. I live close to the machinist who invented the pull top can (not sure if he's still alive.) A visiting relative thought his house was a hospital.

My present is the same as my wife's. We give each other "the moon and the stars". Maybe a star ornament or a card or a box of glitter...You get the idea. Ninety minutes appreciated.

My wife bought me a magic wand that you can train to operate your TV, Sky Box, etc.

Here's the wires, will see if I have time to texture her later (55 mins modelling time).

Oh, you can look at the wand here: http://www.thewandcompany.com/

stevenpalomino: Thanks. But, if I animate him, I'll half to work on the poly flow.:)

Waves of light: Very nice modeling. Very nice gift. I don't know about "Avada Kedavra" or "Cruccio" but I could go for "Stupify" for some shows on TV.

I know what you you mean. I have assigned the whip-flick to turn off the main TV, so I suppose that would do the trick :D

ArtGoblin - Mug Set - Love the wires, They look like they are printed in an old newspaper. Appreciate the extra effort with the packaging and tissue paper.
Iain - Toblerone - Great modelling on the tin foil there, it looks like you just ripped it open..... oh you did. Nice texturing for the render as well.
Bax33 - Big Money - A very large 100 Bill. Confident wires! Were you going for a hex shape on the door locks?
Rabbitpenny - The moon & the stars. - Nice idea. Both for Xmas and as a render. Very efficient on the poly count.
Waves of light - Magic wand. - Intricate modelling there and a very high poly count. Love the crispness of it all.

It's on to the winner, the 1st one of the year and that is ..... ArtGoblin for the mug, box and paper tissue. A simple cup done well.

Well done all!

Well played ArtGoblin for winning the first SMC of the year!! Love the unwrapped box and texture.

Nice foil Iain.

@XswampyX: Lol, hi-poly. I was going to try and model the folds on the fabric which cushions the inner box, so I SHIFT+D'd the cube a few times and started to move points around. I gave up and left the high-poly box in, with a half cylinder cut from it. LWCAD makes Booleans so easy and as for making hollow boxes I don't think there's anything quicker. For the wand I used 3DCoat to create the normal maps (mainly for the grip) and colour maps.

On with the next one....

XswampyX - no I was not going for the hex shape. Lightwave crashed during the process indicating my graphic driver stopped responding. I tried updating the driver and everything really went nuts then, so I had to do a system restore to a couple of days back. Just so happen that it caused me to lose my subpatch settings in modeler, so the settings were to low. This is more info than you probably wanted to know.

I just want to say congrats to ArtGoblin for a job well done. I thought the wand was well done as well. I really liked them all. After submitting mine and seeing others, I began reducing the poly count on my doors and drawers. I'm still learning but these speed challegenes give me a goal and I really enjoy the challenge. Great job all.

Woooohooo !!! I have to say I did not see this coming... probably becouse there were other models that I felt were soooo well done. Thanks for the kind comments as well fellas, stuff like this makes one want to do more :)
