Speed Modeling Challenge #234 - Put a Lid on It



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. (For wireframe help go to: http://www.artssphere.com/plugins/polygoncoloring.php)
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: Put a Lid on It

Yes very nice JoePoe. :)

I don't wear this very often.... It annoys the peasants.

Great models you two.

Here's my hi-hat ren-oh.... well that makes more sense...

About 10-15 minutes modeling and about 30 surfacing.

Steven - nice take on "hat" :)

With all do respect for the nice comments above....

W.W. would expect nothing less than 92% purity. Not saying I'm there.... but, it's better!

A couple of small changes make a big (imho) difference.
My challenge, my rules..... "I AM the danger". :hey:
This is much MUCH more Heisenberg.

Yes! I have a BIG lab. :hey:


With a tip of my hat......

XswampyX: Crown: Befitting with all the work and amazing problem solving you do here. I see, however, that the peasants did not get around to making the wires. OFF WITH THEIR HEADS, or at least.... "Let them eat cake!" :D

stevenpalomino: Hi-Hat. Nice take on the challenge. You're going to need a strap or something to keep that on your head! :ohmy:

JoePoe: (W.W.) "Say my name."......"Say......My......Name!!".......... (response) "Heisenberg"............ (W.W) "DAMN RIGHT!" http://i1049.photobucket.com/albums/s395/joepoe1/sticker375x360u1copy2_zps9e3da4e3.png
