    Smile Speed Modeling Challenge #199 - Bender.

    Speed Modeling Challenge #199 - Bender.
    *************************************************


    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: It's bender from Futurama - Pretty simple to do in an hour I think? Bonus points for extra modelling on his accessories. Enjoy. If you don't... well you can bite my shiny, metal a..

    Time limit: 60 minutes

    Deadline: Thursday, December, 13th, 2012, 22:00 G.M.T

    I felt sooooo dreadful about the lacklustre progress towards 60 minutes, that the tacky accessory for Bender was a last minute attempt to cheer myself up ..but I'm glad it worked, because it made me laugh all night, so i'm feeling OK now!

    Bender the "lover model"

    I like how you tastefully put the leaf right the way out there at the end... not much hiding the modesty there is there lol. That made me laugh.

    The tune "Metal fingers in my body" by Add N to (x) came to mind when I saw your pic... all far too rude for such a reputable forum lol.



    p.s. What is a doona? (asks a pom)

    …and there I was, wondering what on earth was so rude about that song, until I realised you did the fig leaf manoeuvre yourself. Well played, Kaptive! LMAOOO

    Sorry about the inadvertent use of slang with doona - also known as a duvet, quilt/blanket/bedding

    Great.... .... so I guess my reference picture is now completely inappropriate!

    Back to the drawing board.

    None-entry

    Hey Guys,

    Nice topic.

    Been saying to myself that I need to enter these again (I did one, ages ago (medical topic)) but I need to brush up on my skills, or lack of modelling skills, and lack of speed!

    Anyway, as it happens, before I did the Robotochan piece for the Siggraph 2008 contest, I modelled Bender for fun. Don't think I showed him. Please don't take this as an entry as it was done bit by bit with spare time over a few days a back in April 2008, as I said. But just thought I could share him for the fun of it.

    Cheers,
    Dom

    Well here is my Bender. I would hope that fans of the show know this little guy. If not there is a refernce below.

    I would have to admit it is not within the time limit. I got carried away trying to perfect it. But I guess it will go well with my portfolio (Fresh outta uni wooh, lookin for a job ).

    While I am here i have to ask because I have no idea how and would love to know...
    You can see in my wireframe my teeth are set-up and look like the reference but I got to rendering and realized I have no idea how to 'bold' the wireframe to make the teeth. I eventually made a texture grid but it surely must be possible the other way right?

    EDIT: I also have to know another thing.
    I have a cylinder head right, then i have a box to border his eyes, How can I wrap the box around the same curve as the head? none of those drag magnet things seem to work.

    Thanks peeps

    So officially I went way over the timer
