Speed Modeling Challenge #172 Everything AND the Kitchen Sink
*************************************************
http://i1049.photobucket.com/albums/s395/joepoe1/KitchenSampler.png

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.
6. The winner is judged by the challenge starter and the prize is to set up the challenge after next week's .
*************************************************

This week's topic is: Kitchen Stuff
Kitschy, retro, or high end style (or any style for that matter) the kitchen is filled with great gadgets.
Utensils, tools, machines, appliances... it's all fair game.
Let's get cookin'!


Time limit: 90 minutes
Deadline: Wed. 23th May 2012. 22:00 G.M.T.

This took me every bit of 90 minutes to model, but I didn't go over. The rendering on the other hand took as much or more than the model. I still didn't get the hood to appear as brushed metal as much as I wanted. At any rate, its all ready for the rest of the appliances. There is room for the double oven, stove top, and sink. The fridge goes next to either end and plenty of counter space.

Don't know about you guys - but this little doohickie features quite a bit in our house.

Classic helix and bar type corkscrew. 40 mins for the modeling - had to go back and redo a few things through lack of practice, and about half that again for the layout and set up.

Here's one I did for a previous speedmodeling challenge. It was then about the furness, but later added the other stuff as well.. so this one doesn't count, but perhaps gives someone some ideas :)

It's actually my kitchen :) (well not as big, but the same model :D)

Found time for a second go - A salt pig.

Model done in about 25 mins. Layout was another 25 or so after.

Looking good!

What's a salt pig? :question:

About an hour for the sink and taps. Then went a bit mental on the backdrop setting. :D

Some nice entries, if I can I'll try and get one done tomorrow, but I'm not sure I'll have the time. I think you should go 'a bit mental' on all your entries XswampyX. :)

I had no idea until the Missus moved in!
It's a wide-mouthed vessel used to store salt near to a cooking or food preparation space.

Well within the modelling time limit - but completed and submitted after 2200hrs GMT... I'd started so I'll finish!

Model is a basic Castor veg peeler, 50 mins modelling, with about 15 mins for setup.

@ XswampyX - cracking rendition of a sink and its neighbours. :thumbsup:
Great entries all.

Excellent work on the peeler, Flakester! Some great stuff all round.
I just dont have the time these days!

I threw this together after the deadline anyway. Same tap I have in my kitchen..............

Nice peeler, Flakester. Iain, you manage some really nice images for stuff you 'throw together'. I was going to try for a sink initially but XswampyX had that nicely covered.

Anyway, another to add post-deadline. Attempted one of these for a challenge a while back and wanted to have another crack at one. I tried yesterday but ran out of time, so I had another go today. And before anyone asks, it's an homage to 80's power dressing! ;D

Oedo, the wireframe for your corkscrew is awe inspiring! How'd you get those tight twists??

Alright, good job everyone.....let's see what's cookin'!

Rabbitpenny: Whisk & Bowl - Nice efficient bowl and handle. Excellent job taming the wire part. Don't care what you're mixing, that could have gotten messy.

Bax33: Kitchen - Kudos for taking on the kitchen itself!! Good sense of space. Clean model too. Not sure I understand the handles though (being VERY nit picky here),.. doesn't seem like much to grab onto. Modern aesthetic? Looks good nonetheless. Keep going... I'd like to see you fill it up!

flakester: Corkscrew (traditional) - Elegant job on a classic item. Love the detail on top. The screw itself looks kinda flat... maybe it's a style I've never seen?

chco2: Oven/Range - Nice model, and thanks for sharing.... but, as you point out, not made for this challenge.

flakester #2: Salt Pig?? - Salt pig:D... I just like saying it. Is there a Pepper Hog? Nice clean Sub-Ds... and I learned something.

XswampyX: The Kitchen Sink - Very very nice!! I'm assuming the entry is just the part in wires, so, awesome as everything else is in creating the environment/context, I'm going to have to try and block a lot of that out.

flakster #3: Peeler - Another classic well done. A "simple" object that has complexity. You did it justice. Interesting angle on the product shot too (taking it outside it's usual frame of reference). After deadline.

Iain: Kitchen Faucet/Tap - Excellent "throw together" tap. A lot going on in the sink model too. Well done. After deadline.

Oedo 808: Corkscrew (wing) - This holds a place close to my heart. It was one of the very first objects I ever modeled, so thanks for the memories. Good job too. Alas, after deadline so out of the running, but maybe I can try and get your sentence reduced by a couple of years!

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

Winner:
The clue was in the title. I was hoping somebody would do the kitchen sink!
But, really that's just a bonus. Taking wire parts only into account.... XswampyX! :king:

Another challenge down the drain. :)

Congrats XswampyX, very nice work,:thumbsup: as is to be expected from ye.

On the whole some nice work from this challenge.

Thanks Joe, I think a wine glass was one of my first models, and a corkscrew was my first or second Speed Challenge attempt. Seems like there is a recurring theme on these here forums. :beerchug:

Thanks Iain, very kind of you to say so :)

I can't be arsed to add text into the gif, so for the corkscrew I...:

Made a plane and divided it into eight horizontal polies.
Shifted the points on one side up by an amount equal to three divisions.
Divided vertically to make an eight by eight grid.
Wrapped it around 360 degrees.
Cloned it a few times (could have used a taller grid :P)
Removed an edgeloop (the second one to leave the narrow loop at the bottom).
Multishifted out the narrow loop.
Used right-click with Move Plus to shrink the stem a little.
And that was it I think.

Congrats xswampyx, I'm always amazed at your work. The render was awesome too, I can't get metal like that yet.

Everyone else had some great models as well. I agree, there has to be a pepper hog, it just makes sense. :D

I also agree with the comment about the handles, but it really wasn't my idea. I'm uploading the reference I used to show the handles. The drawback to this is that you'll now see how far off the reference I was. Oh well, I haven't got near the hours at this I will have in the future. :thumbsup:
