    Speed Modeling Challenge #211 - Easter!

    Speed Modeling Challenge #211 - Easter!



    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. (For wireframe help go to: http://www.artssphere.com/plugins/polygoncoloring.php)
    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: Easter.

    Yeah I know, but it is Easter and all that. So get into mood and model some Easter things... eggs, bunnies, chicks, erm ... and anything chocolate. Can you model the box, egg and sweets in less than an hour? Bonus point for making me hungry.

    Modeling time: 60mins

    Deadline: Wednesday, April, 3rd, 2013, 22:00 G.M.T

    Have fun!

    I'm unable to upload images (takes forever). Perhaps other people are having an issue with this too - hence the silence?

    Those are both eggcellent XswampyX (sorry-its mandatory!)
    Your Smarties egg render is first class but I think a touch of DOF and a blurred backdrop would lift it even more.

    Thanks Iain. I was so chuffed with the smarties I didn't look at the rest of the composition.

    Hope this is better, or is the DOF overdone?

    Cheers!

    Felt I had to take part even though all my free time is currently taken up with (bloody) work.
    An egg I wanted but told everyone not to get me as I just bought 30" waist jeans for the first time in 20 years.

    A few months ago, John Lewis had a sample tray of Charbonnel and Walker Salted Caramel Truffles and I adjusted my hairstyle three times to go back for more.

    Nice one Iain, Did you draw the box wires freehand?

    Some wires.... Pretty basic shapes.

    Nothing to crazy, just a simple lil egg. Modeling time 5 minutes.

    Was fun to play with the FiberFX to make grass. texture on the egg could be better

    Yes, I know there are weave textures/shaders (pretty good ones too)....., but it's a modeling challenge right?

    Pretty much done in the hr, but have been pushing some points around for a bit (still ain't right), so I have to say I'm over.

    Nice basket Joe looks great! Looking forward to the wires on it.

    Side note, How to you add an image so it shows up full in your post and isn't a lil thumbnail pic?

    First time FiberFX. Never new it even existed but I'm glad I know now, so powerful.
    I can't find any decent settings for good looking grass though. Tips?
    Also do you really need as many polys for my floor as I do. I was following a tutorial and it was the only way I could get more density and to get clump to work :S
    Took about 30-40 for the model.
    Stole your egg style Swampy though don't think I did it justice :P
