    Speed Modeling Challenge #224 - Flowers

    Speed Modeling Challenge #224 - Flowers
    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: Flowers.

    Real or fantasy flowers.


    Modeling time: 60 mins

    Deadline: Wednesday, July 17th, 2013, 22:00 G.M.T

    To start you off :-) This is a venus fly trap colored only with vertex coloring i modeler. MAN what a performancehit that has on modeler! It was like 1 FPS when rotating in perspective view.

    Decided to go with Orchids. Took me pretty much an hour exactly to model the orchid, stem and bud. UV map and texturing took considerably longer.

    I could do.... If I knew what all the buttons did!

    If you get a good shape to start with, they normally come out looking pretty good.

    Here you go.



    It's not really a tutorial, it's just me making another tree. I sort of go off tangent and create spheres for the leaves, just to show what's possible. I put the standard leaves back on later.

    Hope you like it.

    Cheers!

    Make a Smiley icon would be a cool challenge.
