    Exclamation Speed Modelling Challenge #164 – Blow me!

    Speed Modelling Challenge #164 – Blow me!
    *************************************************
    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 wire-frame and a render at 800x600 or larger.
    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.
    *************************************************

    This week's topic is: Brass wind instruments. Was thinking along the lines of plumbing, pipes and valves, add them all together and you get a brass instrument. So bugles, trumpets, tubas etc, or even your own design.


    Time limit: 60min.
    Deadline: Wed. 28th march 2012. 22:00 G.M.T

    Sorry, XswampyX...

    The minute I saw "blow me," my mind went in a different direction. The kid in me wanted to play a bit. It ain't brass, but it definitely responds to being blown...

    15 minutes to model one-quarter of the pinwheel, another 20 minutes manipulating the fold with bones in layout and saving the transformed object, then making an array of 4 it in modeler.

    [EDIT] Added a bit of motion blur...

    Thanks man! Very enlightening.

    I actually started this challenge, my first one ever, and failed MISERABLY and UTTERLY. OTOH, it was very educational, so I recommend it to all.

    Learned a lot about extrusion. And remembered how I've never gotten anything useful out of Multiple Rail Extrude-- that's some serious Jedi modeling if you can use that tool.

    I'm over - but I thought I would try. Don't know if I'll have time to render this week.

    Cool models. These can be tricky, I made a bugle for one of the older challenges and I went over, couldn't see where the time went on it.

    oh boy....

    Well we all know how good I am at speed.
    This time, instead of "finishing" and saying I was X amount over, I decided to stop at 1 hr. This is how far I got. I'd say less than half way done.... And I didn't even get to use my "spit" valve joke - you started it XswampyX!!

    1 Hr?! I hate 1 hr!! Blow me.
