    Speed Modelling Challenge #246 - What's on a shelf near you?

    Speed Modelling Challenge #246 - What's on a shelf near you?

    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: What's on a shelf near you?
    Go ahead - snoop around! There are plenty of things to model. Everywhere. For anyone, no matter the level of skill!
    One limitation though: it has to fit into this shelf:

    pinkmouse is right ... I do not know if I have to look at the right-where lies my favorite, a large rocket launcher, or the left-to the tiny voodoo figurine ... and maybe Akaracquel already counts the number of wombats she can put on this shelf...

    Currently using some IFW2 nodes, so if you don't have them, tell me and I'll redo the textures before I post the model/scene.

    Simple Skin. Still not entirely perfect, needs a bit more surface reflection, but ran out of time to play. Will post scene when I get home tonight.

    Pinkmouse, 60 minutes time limit is only for modelling. If you want, you can play with materials, light and scene as long as you want (at least to challenge deadline)..

    Nope, sorry, I don't. Nice material in your render!

    Yes, but in that case: post me the actual beer instead of the .lwo

    Wasn't challenge time, but real life that got in the way.
