    Speed Modeling Challenge #187 - The Great Escape

    Speed Modeling Challenge #187 - The Great Escape

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

    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.
    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: The Great Escape
    Escapism: mental diversion by means of entertainment or recreation
    Escapology: the study and practice of escaping from physical restraints
    Prison escape the act of breaking out of prison

    From Rocketships to popping pills its all a form of escape.
    After the last challenge I half expect to see a set of divorce papers or two
    Have fun
    Time limit: 60 minutes

    Deadline: Wednesday, 05 September 2012, 22:00 G.M.T

    Here's my entry. I made some shapes for tunnel and pipes with LWCad and extruded. Modeled the clamps and applied Vector Clone, then bent all together. For the mud I used Textured Point to create a weight map and Move tool with falloff set to weight map. This all took about 35 minutes. For the hole I separated a piece of the wall, sliced and extruded the bricks, copied some of them into a new layer and used Fracture. In Layout I used Bullet to let them fall to ground and saved transformed, after that time was over.

    Cool start

    It's good to see polished entries. While often it's not difficult to find an hour to put something together, you can be squeezed to get time to do it justice. You've certainly done well there.

    Definitely high up on the list of my favourite escapes - music.

    46 minutes for the modeling, probably a sniff over the same amount for the render set-up.

    The model is attached in case anyone wants a closer look - though it's by no means a graceful object.

    Dee: great modeling and beautiful render. Could be a movie still. It tells a great story. And Flakester: Looks Photographic!

    One hour, not counting sand. Tried to set up a "windy flapping umbrella morph" with motion blur. Didn't quite work out. Maybe later.
