    Speed Modeling Challenge #122 Just a Box

    Speed Modeling Challenge #122 Just a Box
    *************************************************
    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 wireframe and a render at 800x600 or larger.
    3. LightWave should 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.

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

    This weeks topic is: Just a Box

    It can be as simple or complex as you like but it has to be a box.

    84% of points will be awarded for imagination .


    Time Limit - 60 minutes.
    Deadline - Wednesday 1st June 2011. 2200 GMT.

    I feel you are making a point out of having it a boxed shape just so I won't do another turd rendering... but on a more serious note, Nice challenge... now it'll be a question of thinking either inside or outside the box

    I can only imagine Pixar's reply: "I'm sorry but the position of the box modeler has already been taken"

    A wee experiment.
    I made the flat template then folded it using only Rotate to make the box.
    Almost worked..............

    Here it is. I personally like number three best, I would prefer that be the one that is judged. Modeling took 5 minutes. Scanning in my cover and texturing took about 20. Then deciding which render settings to use took about 10 minutes. I just decided to put up all of them, and see which looks best on your screens.

    That may well be, but your renders definitely make up for it.
