Speed Modeling Challenge #186 - Punishment.
*************************************************

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: Punishment. Any type of device or equipment used for punishment in the past, present or even future (if you have an idea). There is a wide range of things to choose from such as paddle, prison cell, stocks, gallows, and many more. Here's a link to help http://www.localhistories.org/pun.html
Good luck.

Time limit: 60 minutes

Deadline: Wednesday, 29 August 2012, 22:00 G.M.T

Here you go, my first time ever entering. Total time, about 50minutes. Tight confinement is a form of punishment.

Of course, someone's going to have to go for the joke. I'll see what I can come up with... :) Actually, I've a couple of ideas, I'll have to see how they work out.

You rang?

Has to be a modelling record. 3mins total. 10mins texture and light. :D

1. Create 48 side disc 2cm width
2. Select upper and lower poly, bevel, bridge
3. Select outer row of ring, Connect, select points and pull out
4. hit tab
5. Select inner ring, UVmap (for official marks)

Done.

Looks good. :)

I would have gone for an inscription in the ring reading "One Ring to Rule him All..." though. :)

Edit : This is the joke I was aiming for (might be offensive, it's crass humor...)

I purposely left this option out of the list of punishments and you guys still went there immediately! Unbelieveable. :D

By the way, nice renders. I like those pearl rings.

@bax33: yer, with the purple/pink cover it does give the rings a pearl look.

Ok, I will promise to do something that actually relates to the topic.

I didn't like this show as a child. But I watched it because we only got one TV channel. To have to watch this show now would be torture for me. If you don't know about "I Love Lucy", then there is hope that humanity has progressed. Full hour, a bit sloppy on the antenna.

As noted earlier, here's the wires for the ring above, to make it an official entry. I'll try to have something more on topic before the deadline wednesday.

Actually, all of these are 'on topic'. When I came up with the topic, the first thing I thought of was marriage, but I didn't want to suggest it. I was just surprised how quickly it came to surface.

Continuing along a similar theme - pregnancy tests.

40 mins modeling, somewhere around the same for the render setup.
Grand efforts from everyone so far. :thumbsup:

A hanging cage or Gibbet. Popular for a time for dealing with pirates and sheep stealers.
Just about the hour modeling. The render may be far too dark but I just cant tell, my monitor is on its way out and its brightness is becoming rather unreliable.

Great entries by everyone and this being my first time entering, I'm having a lot of fun too. But just want to say, this entry by R.Fenney, I love it. The scene is so isolated. Imagine being locked in there and left alone! Yikes!! Good stuff indeed :thumbsup:!!

So, I'm here feeling good about the fact that I've modelled something nobody else has for this challenge, and inside the time limit. Just finished texturing the base and I look at my emails and see your glorious guillotine .. thunder well and truly stolen :grumpy:

All I have to say is UGH. Took Many Curves and Corners. And LW's Connect tool is kinda sucky. Still, it works... It would work nicer if it would connect more then 2 points...

Wires get kind of dense around the keyholes.

Very nice, good modelling.

Explain? I ask because I can select more than two points and use connect to cut through all connected points? It maybe something else you're after. Let the group know, I'm sure there's a solution.

Kryslin

A bit of an explanation...

CC Subd's don't like concave turns, like the inside jaw of the hand cuffs. I had sketched out the outline of the piece using the pen tool, then extruded it to make the arm. I then boolean'd the hole for the bolt at the end of the arm. In order to keep it's shape without doing some weird things, I started connected pairs of points to make edges. When I got to the end of the jaw with the hole, I needed triangles, and tried to select 4-5 points in the order I wanted them connected... and only wound up with the first pair of points connected. Grrr. It's also annoying that connect doesn't drop deselect the points when it's done, but the deselect key is close by.

Connect does work with multiple edges - and I use it frequently - but the same functionality doesn't appear to work with points... At least, I've gotten pretty quick at select, connect, deselect.

Hmm, time for some lscript...

Ok, I don't want to go off topic, as this is a competition thread, but check this quick video out and let me know if what you're trying to do is the same as in the first 8 secs (whereby I'm connecting points and creating cuts using the 'connect' tool or the latter, where I'm selecting three or more points and using 'p' to create a poly?

Ok,

I'm having one of the those days (client's site got hacked - been cleaning that mess up all morning). So here is my guillotine. All inside the time limit, thanks to LWCAD and a nice trick I remember for creating rope with the lathe tool.

Wires and a stock render from 3DCoat are also attached.

Cheers,

Ricky.

OnlineReader – no wires of your better half disqualifies you, sorry – but I enjoyed the humor
Paul Boland – Tight confinement is definitely a form of punishment and you’re within the time limit. It’s great to see you make this your first speed challenge entry! Hope to see many more from you. Wires look straight forward and clean.
Waves of light – Wedding rings – love the sense of humor and the render – simple clean wires
Kryslin – Gold Wedding Band (with inscription!) – wires are straight forward – this doesn’t happen to modeled after your ring does it?
Rabbitpenny – The “I Love Lucy” show as punishment. I didn’t think the show was that bad as a kid, but make me use this TV with no remote, that’s punishment! The modeling looks great.
flakester – Pregnancy test – wires look sharp and within the time limit – not sure I follow the punishment aspect though, doesn’t the render show a negative result? A positive result can be punishment for life.
R.Feeney – Gibbet - nicely done – I always learn something from your models – I like the details of the cage, especially the top eyelets and rope. The render is looks great as well.
XswampyX – Thumbscrew – no wires, but a nasty little device and wonderful render as well
Oliversimonnet – cuffs and paddle – nice render and wires – funny I couldn’t find this on Google, hmmm
Chco2 – thanks for sharing your guillotine – I love guillotines. I don’t know why, it just makes me feel better to look at one. Awesome render.
Chco2 – Branding stick – good entry, I hadn’t thought of that as a form of punishment, but it has certainly been used for this. Good LW logo wire too
Kryslin – Handcuffs – very nice render and wires – great detail
Waves of light – Guillotine – render is bloody, very bloody and the wires are great.

So many good entries to choose from, but after all the slicing, thumb tightening, caging, and branding, I’m locking in the winner and throwing away the key – the winner is…… Kryslin:thumbsup:

Great job everyone!! The new challenge is already posted.

I... Won? <THUD>

Bax33 : Nope, I'm single. I have a geeky sense of humor, though. The actual punishment for my second entry was modeling that... thing. Ugh. I'm still learning SubD's, and it shows.

Waves of Light : Hit a bit of a snag, trying to lscript my idea - no access to the connect command. So, time to learn python and the ways of the SDK...

Whhhoooohoo... Congrats to Kryslin, great model of the cuffs, especially with the time limit and the craziness of 'connect' on non-tris or non-quad polys.

Good look with python... There's a dedicated section on it here : http://forums.newtek.com/forumdisplay.php?f=308

Good comp Bax33, really enjoyed that one.

After I completed the model, I found a faster way to do it - Triangulate the offending poly, and then use a lscript I wrote called "FusePolyPairs", after selecting triangles in the order I want to join them together (FPP does a shift Z operation on polygon pairs, two at a time. It's a little slow, but I just though of an optimization...).

Still, I want to get a 'connect the points" script written, because it'd be useful to a lot of people...
