    Cool Speed Modeling Challenge #215 - Cluedo - there's been a murder!

    Speed Modeling Challenge #215 - Cluedo - there's been a murder!

    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: CLUEDO - there's been a murder!

    I found this to be a really boring game when I was younger. I don't think it kept my attention because there weren't that many characters and the choice of weapons were rubbish. So, let's bring the game up to date by modeling some new weapons. You can be as crazy as you like e.g. Mr Peacock, in the toilet, with the sink plunger and so on.

    Here's a link to a predesigned 'Cluedo-like' backdrop graphic (in psd format and also as a blank png for those without Photoshop). So if you want to, you can render out your weapon and then add it to the backdrop, along with your Forum name and where the murder happened. You don't have to do this if you don't want to and standard renders will, as always, be accepted.

    I believe the game is called "Clue" in the US, and I had fun playing it when I was a kid. Anyway, let's start this thing rolling...

    I blame Chuck Jones and too many Looney Tunes cartoons for my weapon of choice. Wires later. Modeling time, 30 minutes, and all SubD geometry. Need more practice compositing images, though.

    Brilliant, love it. and there's nothing wrong with having those two as influences. All sub-d as well, kudos. Don't worry about the comp side if it, that's just for fun and I think your final image is fine.

    Modelling time 25 min. Texturing the eye took longer but was good learning.

    Fun challenge Waves of Light! Loved the compositing spin/opp.
    Was busy cooking and went overtime on an ornamental Ginosaji ---O spoon.
    Can anyone guess which movie soundtrack I chose to get in the right mood for modelling it?

    So sorry I haven't been able to reply until now guys and girls, been away from my PC for ages. Back now and I have to say some excellent entries from Slartibartfast and Akaraquel, especially as both are all sub-d and look equally painful ways to be brought to ones death.

    I couldn't guess the soundtrack Akaraquel, but at least I knew it wasn't a shot from a village people video

    Yer, and sub-d text is a devil to do quickly. Nice wires Kryslin.
