    Speed Modeling Challenge #229 - Futuristic Travel and Transportation

    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: Futuristic Travel and Transportation

    In the news this week, Elon Musk's outlines his plans for a future underground rail system that uses only solar energy and can transport people across America in less than 45 minutes. The Hyperloop may just be a pipe dream, but I love this sort of design and the detail, including the hand-drawn artwork and 3d/cg shots.

    So, this week’s challenge is to model something to do with futuristic travel and transportation. It can be the method of transportation itself, e.g. rail, car, bike, aircraft, time travel pod. It can be a construction used to assist methods of futuristic transportation e.g. futuristic bridges, lifts, stations, docking ports, networks, washing/cleaning centres. Or, it can be something linked to futuristic transportation, something that accompanies travel e.g. sleep pod, pet pod, hyperchair, futuristic luggage, gadgets (futuristic alarm to get you up on time for your journey).

    Did I mention that it had to be ‘futuristic’, lol.

    Modeling time: 120 mins

    Deadline: Wednesday, August 21th, 2013, 22:00 G.M.T

    To kick us off, here are some ideas/designs:

    I watched Despicable Me the other day and was really impressed with the way they did cars and flyers.

    Must find a couple of hours..............

    Nice topic! And the perfect excuse to dust off my old Larry Shultz spline-modeling video. From what I can tell from those idea/design images, the future is looking quite curvy indeed.

    Another one of my favourites (sorry, bit of Pixar, Dreamworks, Illuminations fanboy - it's what comes with having kids and doing 3D/CG). If you get the chance to see Despicable Me 2, go see it.

    Spline-modeling - man, haven't touched that in ages, but yes, if you're going for futuristic it tends to be curvy!

    Great find Kuzey. Love the development of the minions. Would give my right testicle to work on a project like that, sit with your kids at the cinema and go 'I made that'. Yep, I see a 'despicable' future competition on the cards.

    I think I'm going to have to put a temporary ban on the use of Despicable Me models

    Nice pod car though Kuzey and little longer than usual of you bud.

    I thought I had configured all my menus & then realized I hadn't..spent 20mins looking for things like thicken etc.

    And re-did that car nose a few times, that's what happens when you don't plan things out before hand
