Speed Modeling Challenge #43 - You are a CSI and you walk into a crime scene. The first piece of evidence you see is............
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

************************************************** *******
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.

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.

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

Interesting. The fingerprint is on the inside of the matchbox but there is not a single match missing. That means that the perpetrator went for the match but did not actually touch any of them. The murderer was a heavy smoker and is trying to quit. The murderer is committed enough on his resolution to stop smoking as to reject the impulse even after such a stressful event as a murder. The number was scribbled after the murder, since the killer moved the 0 over the bloody fingerprint. The killer is clearly not a professional but was also not too nervous since the fingerprint and the writing are quite steady.

Did I miss something?

or the killer went to read the number on the matchbook that the vic had and went to read the number and tossed it as to no consequence to him/her

I grew up in a really small town, and always wondered why there was a CSI Miami, New York, and Las Vegas but they never made CSI Middle of Nowhere. If there had, here's what the crime scene would look like.

guess big bird finally got axed off sesame street

JCG

Interesting. The axe and most of the blood are on the victim's left side, with the grip facing away from the victim. That indicates that the killer was right handed.

The blood stains above the head indicate that the killer was probably taller than the chicken. However, only the edge of the axe is stained so (s)he is probably not very strong.

The victim is between the axe and the house. Also, the pole of the axe is facing away from the house. That indicates that the killer is not from the house. Yet, the duck was not scared away so it was someone familiar, whom the duck trusted.

Did I miss something?

It was actually the duck. Remember 95% of criminals return to the scene. It was apart of a turf war that had been going on for years.

Not so much this week huh? I wish I could participate in this one. I have already thought of a few simple items to do, but I don't think I'll have the time. We have a release due out this week, and we're fighting to stay on schedule.

I won't have time, either, and I had a good plan. You know the old cliché of a knife made of ice? I had in mind a partially-melted revolver.

i've got an idea and it looks like i should have time to carry it out. expect something later this evening! :thumbsup:

Couldn't resist this one, just HAD to find the time once I had the idea!! :D

Just under 45 mins for the modelling, and about 35 mins for the rest of it.
Happy to share the model and scene if anyone wants them.

May even be able to scrape together some more minutes later on today for another one if I get lucky.

Come on guys, stay up a couple extra hours and whip something up. We cant let this contest die out.

Other than the age of the victim, I'm completely lost for clues on this one. :(
Look for someone with an exceedingly sharp knife?

.... and perhaps some sort of medical training; this murderer obviously 'nose' what they're doing!

Egads, sorry. I feel like I've just let myself down, along with everybody else. No more puns, I promise.

I had actually typed a similar pun in and then forced myself to delete it.

Sorry, chaos this week, will I have a job?
My entry would've been a shark with a person eaten in someone's living room.

I still plan on entering, but it may not be until next week.

alright, here we are. modeling time approximately 20 minutes. texture/lighting time about 1.5 hours.

Unfortunately I have had no chance to take part this week, Great subject matter though.

I will post this weeks challenge later tonight.

Maybe we need to find a sponsor to put up some kind of prize to get the enthusiasm back.
It would not have to be anything big, A t shirt, a license for one of the cheaper commercial plugins, a small sheet of paper with "you won!" printed on it.

Anything really.

AdamAvenali
06-24-2009, 12:38 PM
Unfortunately...really.

i was actually thinking it would be cool if maybe the next challenge was to model a trophy or something and we could make it into an avatar sized image and if you win you get to put it in your sig or something. i think i saw something like that over on game-artist.net or something. Feeney would get to put like 30 in his sig haha

I couldn't be part of the last challenges since I was on holidays in Spain :)

I'll do my best for the next challenge though.

Another reason for the low number of entrees could be the subjects. They are not so easy. Simple ideas like instruments of the doctor or furniture of the living room would be easier to get a model in the head. Not all of us are doing 3D all day, everyday...
