    Speed Modeling Challenge #280 – Christmas Time

    1. Every two weeks or so there will be a subject for you to model along with a time limit between 60 and 120 minutes (plus 60 minutes if you're new to LightWave). You should spend no longer than the allotted time modeling. Then texture your object(s), light the scene, and post a render of your model to this thread. As in most challenges like this, your honesty on modelling time 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:
    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. If there are a sufficient number of contributors, a "winner" will get the chance to set the subject of the next challenge. Input from the community is often used in this process. If there are only a handful of contributors, they can discuss this together and pick the next topic, designating one of them to post the new subject in the Forum.
    7. Have fun! This is a community event designed to encourage you to keep modeling. Whether you're a new LightWave artist or a seasoned professional, working with these tools is the only way to get better.

    My Modelling skills have always been poor, but I am going to make an effort this year to practice which I dont do! I always thought the speed challenges were a good way of getting me to practice, so I am going to make an effort to enter no matter how poor the results.
    120 mins and nicked the presents from somewhere.
