Speed Modeling Challenge #187 - The Great Escape

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

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: The Great Escape
Escapism: mental diversion by means of entertainment or recreation
Escapology: the study and practice of escaping from physical restraints
Prison escape the act of breaking out of prison

From Rocketships to popping pills its all a form of escape.
After the last challenge I half expect to see a set of divorce papers or two:hey:
Have fun
Time limit: 60 minutes

Deadline: Wednesday, 05 September 2012, 22:00 G.M.T

Here's my entry. I made some shapes for tunnel and pipes with LWCad and extruded. Modeled the clamps and applied Vector Clone, then bent all together. For the mud I used Textured Point to create a weight map and Move tool with falloff set to weight map. This all took about 35 minutes. For the hole I separated a piece of the wall, sliced and extruded the bricks, copied some of them into a new layer and used Fracture. In Layout I used Bullet to let them fall to ground and saved transformed, after that time was over.

Cool start :thumbsup:

It's good to see polished entries. While often it's not difficult to find an hour to put something together, you can be squeezed to get time to do it justice. You've certainly done well there.

Definitely high up on the list of my favourite escapes - music.

46 minutes for the modeling, probably a sniff over the same amount for the render set-up.

The model is attached in case anyone wants a closer look - though it's by no means a graceful object.

Nice one flakester, and thanks for sharing the model

Dee: great modeling and beautiful render. Could be a movie still. It tells a great story. And Flakester: Looks Photographic!

One hour, not counting sand. Tried to set up a "windy flapping umbrella morph" with motion blur. Didn't quite work out. Maybe later.

I used up every bit of he 60 minutes. Still missed the detail pieces and originally I was going to have bent bobby pin sticking out of key hole, but this was as far as I got.

Some wires.

A chain ladder. Just what you need to make good your escape. I just love the way bullet handles chains. :lightwave

Ok, this one didn't get done in under a hour... It took Quad Panels that long to detail the model...! (And the wires aren't worth showing, either...)

If you're going to escape, you need something to escape from, and The Empire is a good a villian as any...
(Everything here was done in Lightwave - the planet, the starfield, the star destroyer... All of it.)

A Fire escape, only took a little over half an hour, lots of repeating parts.

There are some really nice looking models and renders here. Great job everybody!!!

Here is my entry. All modeling within the hour if you don't count the duplicating and arranging of the furniture.

This is an escape, be it an expensive one from time to time.:D

@dee Lovely modeling work and a gorgeous render

@flakester some fairly complex shapes done well

@Rabbitpenny good work, reminds me of one I did for a previous challenge

@XswampyX I imagine that all the moisture wouldn't do your couch much good

@VictoryX Nice work on the handcuffs, I would try framing the shot a bit differently to show them off better

@XswampyX your bullet chain ladder makes me wish I could afford the upgrade too 11

@Kryslin A stardestroyer !! are ya mad? big points for even thinking to try it

@R.Feeney A gloomy brown mess try harder next time:hammer:

@bax A whole club well done


And the winner is......

dee, well done:thumbsup:

apologies for the delay in getting the results up, between my own stuff and the forum disappearing for a time it couldn't be helped.

Congrats, Dee! Now you get to torture us in a week! :)

@RFeeny : The basic shape wasn't hard, and LWCAD helped make short work of that... It's when I had to start slicing up things into quads (Quad panels doesn't work on anything else) and then using Quadpanels to detail things is when I went over in a major way...
