    Talking Speed Modeling Challenge #183 - Stereoscopic Caterpillars

    Speed Modeling Challenge #183 - Stereoscopic Caterpillars
    *************************************************

    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 wire-frame and a render at 800x600 or larger.
    3. LightWave must 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.
    6. The winner is judged by the challenge starter and the prize is to set up the challenge after next week's .
    *************************************************

    This week's topic is: Stereoscopic Caterpillars



    Time limit: 60 minutes
    Deadline: Wed. 9th of August 2012. 22:00 G.M.T.

    I think the 3d looks better with the wires.

    Was looking forward to the wires XswampyX ^_^ Went through the same thing on my one until hubby pointed out he preferred the non wireframe version, saying it enables you to see the details on the surface which gets lost in the wireframe. I can clearly see what he was talking about now so I'm undecided. The glossy surface wrinkling on the skin in the first one looks awesome, while the wireframe accentuates other intriguing features look at. It'd be interesting to see what happens to the first one in black/white - without colour

    Nice work you two, it seems that the neutral colour on the wires not diluting the stereoscopic colours makes quite a difference. It's great for depth on these stills but I wonder if it'd be a little too much for animation. I wish the glasses I have weren't so poxy, I'm sure that doesn't help much.

    I'd like to try for this topic but I won't have time tomorrow, hopefully before Wednesday I'll get something in. If 'Inner Space' becomes a reality, I want to explore the brain cortexes (cortices?) of the Costa del akaracquel, musn't forget to shrink me down some shades for the journey though, I have a feeling it could be quite a trippy trip.

    Yes. But of course I lost them :S If my dongle wasn't attached I'd probably lose that too. Where can I buy some glasses?

    Although I have heard that some cheaper places may not get the color on the lens exactly right. No idea about the place above of course.

    Ack, ran over... (I think - honestly, I got interrupted 4 times modeling this, so I can't give an honest estimate on how long it took...)



    What? I can't model organics. Besides, you didn't say what kind of caterpillar...

    It was interesting, modeling the tracks. Used lots of bevels, LWCAD's realtime booleans, mass round, and Lightwave's Booleans as well.

    I'll post 'em, but I honestly can't say that I was under the time limit with this...

    (Sorry, anaglyphic 3D gives me a headache, as does the newer technique used in theatres today...)

    Here's a cool Stereoscopic 3D short. Made in lightwave 9.6 and comped in Nuke.
