Speed Modeling Challenge #207 - The item to your right
******************************************
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.
The winner is judged by the challenge starter and the prize is to set up the challenge after next week's.
******************************************

My Wacom Intuos 5 9 x 6 Tablet. Nothing Fancy, used good ol' box, ball, boolean union, solid drill, multishift, and chamfer, about 20 minutes time.
Rendered with an insane amount of samples (100 Shading/Lighting) and a little AA (4 passes) @ 960 x 600.

An old floor lamp I don't actually like that much but it cost too much to get rid of it :hey:

Not very exciting, but this LED lamp is just to the right of my monitor, and saves me from having to burn 10 incandescent overhead lamps.

My favorite set of drawers with little compartments. I've had these for 15+ years.

My first entry into one of the speed modeling challenges. I've been needing a good reason to model this. I mainly used a lot of the new 11.5 tools -tweak, thicken, place mesh (for the eyes). Spline and Router tool for the legs and edges on them.

Modeling time was a very rushed 53 minutes. I didn't get time to do the tail. I couldn't decide if I wanted a UV mapped poly or try the new fiberfactory.

Over time. Tricky text and I'm having a bit of trouble getting modeler 11.5 to drop the selected tool and deselect the polys, points or edges.

Hey hey! This is my first speed challenge. 56 minutes. I wanted to keep going, but that's the rule, right? Stop before the hour's up?

Anyway, this is the Cobra HISS tank. I started with a box and eyeballed most of it, which is why its dimensions and shape are similar but not exactly right. This is based on a recent model in the toy line, but I think they changed it again since then.

I didn't finish a number of parts here. didn't have time for guns, aligning the wheels with the body properly, and there are some symmetry issues I was going to fix.

Then I spent about um... 30 minutes screwing around in Layout trying to make it render. I am *NOT* the guy to talk to when it comes to rendering!

Ok Time for a round up and to announce the winner. Lets see:

Kryslin: Nice model. Done it 20 Minutes! Would love to see how you would go with the full time.
akaracquel: As always unique and well modeled. Probably the only one I could picture having one of those nearby
Iain: Beautifully rendered, really nailed the inside glass look. Keep hoarding!
bellmore: Another 20 minute render. The things you guys could accomplish in 1 hour :O, Nice render.
bellmore: Another great render. Love the look of the lamp.
RudySchneider: Might not be very exciting but looks great. Love the wires looks nice and clean.
sublimationman: Looks amazing, straight out of an ikea magazine.
bellmore: Haha bellmore, a man after my own heart. Keep that close by. 10 minutes is pretty damn impressive.
Doctor49152: Haha that's awesome Doctor. Takes me back to the good old Simpsons days. "He's drinking the water!!!!" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQkSOcPLfP4)
JoePoe: That is amazing JoePoe. Can't believe you turned those simple wires into something that looks so real. I have much to learn.
VictoryX: Haha That is awesome. Not afraid to model it like it is.
XswampyX: Damn that looks impressive. To bad about the time limit. You can get compelled to continue touching it up until it's perfect.
ConjureBunny: First challenge and you tackle that. I'm impressed. With some more time on your hands I would have loved to see the final outcome.

Great models by everyone this week, but the winner has to go to....................JoePoe!!!! That render just blew my mind with what can be done at the render stage.

PS: Can't believe I didn't even find the time to model one myself :S

I'm totally amazed at JoePoe's render. Even the detail in the lid looks fantastic!

Yay! Congrats, JoePoe!

To answer Samoht's question... I would've included the stylus and cup with it. :) I had other, more important business to deal with at the time.

woohoo! thanks!! A LOT of good stuff this week. :thumbsup:

I feel a little guilty, it wasn't my intention to turn the modeling challenge into a surface render thing. :angel:
Ultimately, though, my unfair advantage was my familiarity with the object!! :D :beerchug:

Conjure, my favorite part is the cap! I've attached a close up of the wires since it was so small in the original.

XswampyX - I'd still love to see the wires. Looks awesome!! did you use the new chamfer?

And last but not least.... VictoryX, or should I say VictoryXXX! I've got just one thing to say... KEEP THAT THING AWAY FROM MY BOTTLE!! :ohmy:

Simon S.... ur up next.

Ha ha! I wondered if that's how you did the indentations. Awesome.

Well done everyone, some cool models.

Cool model and render there JoePoe, great stuff!

Here's the wires. I didn't use the chamfer tool. But I will! :D

XswampyX, how'd you do the letters? Was that by hand, or did you start with a font / subtract first?

XswampyX
03-04-2013, 05:13 PM
I used a font, removed the unnecessary points and then turned it into quads. I then joined the quads into a grid of quads. Not too difficult with practice. :D

ConjureBunny
03-04-2013, 07:18 PM
That's exactly what I would have done. I never use fonts though, and completely forget LightWave's roots as a flying logo maker ;-)
