Speed Modelling Challenge #23 - Core
************************************************** *******
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 modelling 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 render of your model (min 800x600 pixels) in this thread with a wireframe.

3: LightWave should be used for modelling. 3rd party Plug ins are allowed.

**Please mention whether or not you would be happy to share the model.**

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.


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

Subject - Core. Supplied by R. Feeney (although I think he felt pressured into it :))
Be it apple, Earth's, LW etc, etc. Imagination welcome as always.

Time Limit - 60 minutes

Deadline - Wednesday 4th February 2200 GMT.

Very nice R.Feeney (Thor!).

Mine is not going to win me any prizes, but here it is. Modeling: 60 seconds (or less). Texturing about 5 minutes.
Now back to the core thread... ;)

I went minimalist again. And I reused my lighting rig and surfacing from another challenge. That's not cheating, right? :thumbsup:

Modeling time: 5 minutes. And that was because I had some SubD problems.

Unleash the Core......


Origional object Newtek.....
Ripping it open 15-20 mins
Texturemaping and lighting 30 mins
Render 12m 30s

Thought it was a cool idea, just wanted to do it, I'll think of something from scratch for my next one :D

THE DESK!
Well, not really, just the only desk I could look at for reference, but I needed one to make a Core avatar and it had to do.
Note: The actual desk is black.

I thought about doing a hand but we already had a full challenge just of hands.

Argh!! I don't use avatars! This feels so weird!!

Someone had already modeled Thor's hammer in a previous challenge (hmmm...suspicious) so I had to go for the second best alternative.

The "stand" was not modeled within the 60 minutes.

Lightwave 9.6 and RealFlow 4 demo.

Familiar territory here. Spent about 25 minutes modeling the button and the low poly version for the fluid simulation. Tweaked RealFlow settings for quite a while and spent about 25 minutes on the texture/lighting/render.

The old intarwebs around my part has been particularly awful lately so I'll be surprised if this even gets posted. Wires avail upon request due to woeful web issue. :thumbsup:

Thought I'd push something through on the button theme as well. (See what I did there..... 'push'..... 'button'....?!)

17-20 mins modelling, and about 40 mins all told for the layout and stuff. 10 mins to cook in fprime. No post on this one, unusual for me.

Model and scene available should anyone feel the need.

Well, it looks like I'm forced to miss out on the fun again this week, but there is something I would like to have seen...

I was going to do the outside metal part of the red button, but the actual button part be the top of a red apple. I figured I'd get brownie points for a "double core" lol. Oh well... but if someone else would like to do that one, I'd love to see it. (I was actually going to make a new avatar with it).

Hehe, im so happy to be continuing to keep u with these challenges. Though I was waaaayyyyy late on the last one, this one is a bit early. I still have some work to do on the texturing and stuff... Now that I know that 1hr doesn't include the setup, rendering or the scene layout, i can do it up real nice. These challenges are fun. Thanks for hosting them and thanks for welcoming me to the thread. I really enjoy it.

Like Core... More to Follow =)

THings left to do...
1. better deal with the lighting so the "core" is more prominant.
2. adjust the camera for the same effect
3. deal with the fog (or possibly hypervoxels) so it looks more smokey inside the missle tube.
4. Apply logos to the textures... ive got a cool idea i wanna get out in this one.
5. general texture updating for more realism.

Total modeling time (so far) : 45 minutes.

Nonsense! You've turned out some class entries in the past - at least a few that have made me go "oooooh", in a good way.


~ feel terrible I've not had chance to cast my net in the waters the last couple of challenges.
I know that feeling.
For me sometimes it is just finding the time, and for some subjects it has been sheer lack of quality ideas. I suppose it is natural that we won't all have an abundance of both time and ideas for every challenge.

Look forwards to seeing what you turn out for this one Colkai.

Got a little distracted from doing my second entry!
I'm going to have to wait till the next one.

A Yukon Denali decided it needed to be in the back seat of my car going about 55 mph while I was stopped. 8~ The guys comment was "I looked up and I didn't know you stopped for the other cars" MY question was "why the hell weren’t you looking up in the first place!"

Totaled my car, settled on the vehicle cost, still waiting on the medical. I was actually surprised, my Honda Fit only dropped 1K since driving it off the lot 2 ˝ years ago. Most cars drop 3K-4K as soon as you drive off the lot.

I seem to be in one piece, not bleeding out my ears or anything like that :D at least so far


EDIT: Sorry no wires :D

02-04-2009, 07:00 AM
Ouch, Sorry to hear that, at least you're in one piece.
Mind you, the lengths some folks will go to to find excuses eh? ;) :p

(Make sure you don't settle for too little medical wise, I speak from experience when I say the full effect of a crash may only show itself some time later).

The funny part about the whole thing is one of the things I do for work is accident reconstruction. So this was a little first hand experience :D

I am waiting on the medical for a few weeks to see if anything comes up. If anything does happen the partner in my company is a lawyer who specializes is these types of cases and he has a 98% win ratio. :D

But I think I will be ok, it was last Friday morning when it happened and most of the soreness is going away. I seem to have full mobility and nothing is popping when I move :D

Everything seems to be working out fine. Luckly for me they are really trying to sell cars no matter what. I bought a 07 Saturn Vue fully loaded V6 26k miles with everything except navigation and dvd player for almost half of the blue book value! Clean car history and 75k bumper to bumper warranty.

We have been looking for the last few days and all the delarships we called "just sold it" and "You just missed it" crap for the ones we liked. Stumbled on the one last night and it was listed at $17,500 the bluebook value is listed at $18,500. I told them I had listings of a newer model (which we didn't like the stylings on the new model) for less and we were looking at an 06 (which already sold) for $11,995 (fibbed a bit, it was 12,990 :devil:). I told him I would buy the 07 fully loaded for $11,995. He talked to the dealership manager and they said yes???? 8~

So I'm still walking around thinking WTF??

Oh well... right place....right time...really desperate sales guys :D

Hey guys... just a note... This thread is not in the main list of weekly challenges... i fianlly bookmarked but the other users may like to have easy access...

http://www.newtek.com/forums/showthread.php?t=89283

Oh, what is the cutoff for this.. like time wise...

shadowlock, really glad u r aok. I was in a really bad accident that caused the death of my best friend and girlfriend (drunk driver broadsided me at about 80-90 mph). Since then i bought big old mercedes benz and will continue to do so as a rule (got a mint condition 1998 wagon with 68,000 miles for 8,000 + 1,500 for 2 year wranty; ppl dont like wagons so they go for next to nothing)... stay away from small little cars that go smoosh. At least while 6,000lb SUV's are still the standard.

BTW, once u get a big mercedes you will have a hard time feeling safe in anything else.

That is basiclly what I did. I went from a Honda Fit (Jazz in Europe and Japan) about 2500 lbs to a SUV 4000 lbs..... I loose the gas mileage going from the fit (36 highway mpg) to the Vue (28 highway mpg).

I had just pulled my kids car seats out since I was going to a meeting. The back seats ended up half way between where they were suppose to and where they origionally were. The one on the passenger side being a rear facing seat would have pushed my friend who is 6'4" into the window or the dashboard.

The funny(?) or not :D part was my wife was pissed that I had just filled up the tank a the gas station. But they gave me a full tank when I got my new car.

In that SUV at that weight, the only way you can justify HyMPG, is on the freeway. My 08 Impala picked up 20mpg running without 2 PC's. This system is safe, as I've installed it in 2 different places, inside and outside the AirBox in front of the air cleaner.

FYI.... depending on speed = VaporVolume = FuelPressure

Since I work from home now I didn't need the mpg too high. I was looking more for safty now. My last job I drove 32 each direction and racked up 45k miles in 1 1/2 years. Since working at home I've only added about 10-12k this last year. It does have great mpg for its type, most of the other SUVs are 20 mpg highway and below. I'll take the 28 :D

Most of what I've had to do with cars is accident reconstruction. so adding objects would be a little more interesting then matching damage on a 3D object from a picture. especially when the lawyers want to be exact.

The officer and the firemen got a laught that I did accident reconstructions for a living. I guess Friday was field research :D

Last OT: on hympg. I want a Magnum Wagon V8 or whatever they are called. I have a new Pogue Re-invented box, twice the vapor chamber size that will be ready soon. Took 3~ 2K drives in the last 8mo. to ring out the physics. I did my R & D with safety. and just don't have the real money to finish it up. I'm using 210 degrees heater core water to the water jacket below the VaporChamber. Main thing is it never builds pressure, which is a good thing!

Will that work on my aging MB E-Class Wagon? I get terrible mileage (but i guess thats normal for a 11 year ol 6,000+ lb car) Currently I get about 18 local 22-24 highway. But, oh my goodness, its soooooo comfortable and nice to drive. Best car ive ever owned... period.

With the forums under such pressure last night, I think it only fair to allow up to 22.00 GMT tonight to get your entries posted.
just to be clear a render of at least 800x600 and a wireframe image are necessary for the entry.
Maximum of 60 Min of modeling and as much time as you want on surfacing lighting and rendering.
Good luck and I will pick a winner (no prize) later tonight :)

Ok what do we have here then.
First up Matt and his apple core :) not so much a model as a photo but well with in the time at zero minutes.

Next is one of mine which I will ignore

Then art and the earth core. Nice and simple but no with no render.

JeffrySG ? but no render either

Mark The Great has a very nice render of the core button, no wireframe though.

shadowlock Render and wireframe but its a pre-existing object rather than made for the modeling challenge. Good idea though.

Then me again, I will ignore

JCG Three dots! be sure and have a look at the wireframe on this one.

JCG The Desk took me a couple of minutes to recall what that was about. Wireframe and render, good stuff.

JCG again with Thor`s helmet. Great work with wires and render.

RollerJesus with a leaky core. wires and render all in one. looks good.

And me again, Ignore

flakester with a nice button model, I like the Core on top. render and wires

cresshead an apple core with some interesting blended textures, but no wireframe.

3DeeNut A missle with a glowing core nice work but again no wireframe shot.

shadowlock and his stunning renders of a car accident, no wires though :D Glad you came through OK

colkai Earth core under construction. Cool, render and wires.

_____________
And the Winner is...(this does not meen the three dots that JCG did has won)

I Like colkai and his earth core as the winner.

A close second goes to thors helmet from JCG.

Well done guys:thumbsup:

Well, here it is, not very adventurous I'm afraid but it is something I've fancied doing before.
Modelling took longer for the sing and lights than it did for the Earth, (unsurprisingly ;) ). All told, around 45 mins modelling for everything.

Trust me to try and upload it tonight of all nights. :D

excellent work well done!:thumbsup:

Congrats colkai! :thumbsup:

I had done a quick 5 min test for an object last Thursday, then I had to go to bed. It was going to be a bunch of widgets circling around a larger widget like a solar system.

This was the test that I did but had to go to bed for a meeting the next day, then I had my wreck Friday morning and never got back to it.

OK whats the next Challenge?????? :D

Wow guys,
I mean, I don't know what to say! :dance:
The fact that you folks are liking my work is really encouraging me, especially at the moment when other matters in life are causing worry and stress.
These challenges are really cool and you guys, well, GROUP HUG! :D

Thanks again. I'll put the scene up today, it's reliant on IFW2 for textures though.
