    Cool Speed Modelling Challenge #242 - Alien Tech

    Speed Modelling Challenge #242 - Alien Tech

    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 modelling 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://http://www.artssphere.com/plu...oncoloring.php)
    3. LightWave must be used for modelling. 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: Alien technology.
    It can be any alien machinery, vehicle, building, robot, cow abduction device, weapon or it part. So more "alien " and weird - then better!

    Time Limit: 60 min.
    Deadline: Wednesday 25th December, 2013 23:59:59 GMT

    Enjoy!

    Hmmm, it appears some Doctor fellow left this lying around. Afraid to touch it, though...

    (According to my desktop stopwatch - 0:59:45.73. Lots of bevel, extend, and boolean union/subtract. Took longer to surface, though...)

    Did we want to extend and bevel this out to another week? or should I post a new one?

    I hope you all had a fantastic holiday!

    May extended... what do your guys think?
    Great model, Kryslin - and only modeling time counts. So texturing, lighting and scene setup- here your can spent as much time as your want.

    I vote for extruding an extra week. Too busy traveling and entertaining 4-year-olds over here ...

    I shall be magnanimous and graciously vote to extend this a week. What's the point of winning if you're the only one who entered...?

    And here I thought it was instancing, with the Y-scale being driven by noise... Hmm, something to try...
