    Speed Modeling Challenge #77 - The Moon or bust!

    Speed Modeling Challenge #77
    *************************************************
    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.**

    This week's topic: "The Moon or bust!"

    We're not talking sophisticated sci-fi ships here, but more grounded "Will it get there?" kind of thing.
    You can do real life space vehicles or home made Wallace and Grommit style rockets, Jules Verne inspired Victoriana, Steampunk, whatever.

    Time Limit - 90 minutes.


    Deadline - Wednesday 31st March 2010, 2200 GMT

    hmmmm this actually sounds like I have no idea what to do -___-
    does it have to be man made or can it be alien (like from movies or similar) ?

    It doesn't have to be but I can't really imagine aliens having to deal with how to get to the moon.

    Your imagination is the limit.

    Hmmm... By the title of the challenge, a bosom would be an appropriate subject...

    Well we usually have boobs mentioned at some point!

    This was all done very quickly but I wanted to get something in. 25 minutes modelling.

    My entry for the speed modeling challenge

    Hi all, this is my first entry for the speed modeling challenge. I've been meaning to get more into the Lightwave work lately and I thought this would be one of the best ways to do it.

    So without further ado I present the Martian Maggot from Duck Dodgers original cartoon by Chuck Jones. It took about 40 minutes to model and 20 minutes to texture.

    I hope to get better at using lightwave as my primary skills focus on motion graphics in After Effects.
