    Speed Modelling Challenge #244 - 3D Typography

    Speed Modelling Challenge #244 - 3D Typography

    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://www.artssphere.com/plugins/polygoncoloring.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: 3D Typography.
    It can be logotype, any text, tag etc. - it can also contain elements that is not text, like ornaments or so.

    Ok, I think I got the concept behind this one...


    Nothing fancy here...LW's Logo button, LWCAD's Mass Round tool. 10 minutes. Couldn't get dynamics to help any, so every letter is positioned by hand in layout, and some cheesy VFX added.

    All right you guys ... now this is a first. Finally had some time to actually do something for a contest. I probably haven't followed the rules to the dot, as I have used some 5 minutes of ZBrush for a deformation (LW's falloffs still drive me crazy sometimes). Logo tool, LWCAD rounder, a lot of modify with fall off. Modelling time around 40 mins. Rendered in LW with a teensy bit of toning in PS. Hope you like it. P.S.: as a long time lurker I really have to thank you guys for all the help you've provided over time. Seriously THANK YOU!

    One more thing ... used dp filter for the lightstreaks. That is NOT Photoshop!!
