    Speed Modelling Challenge #15

    Speed Modelling Challenge #15
    ************************************************** *******
    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 render of your model (min 800x600 pixels) in this thread with a wireframe.

    3: LightWave should be used for modelling. 3rd party Plug ins are allowed.

    **Please mention whether or not you would be happy to share the model.**

    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.


    ************************************************** *******


    Subject - Tools Through the Ages


    Any kind of tool from any time period past or future.
    Domestic, industrial, fantastic or practical... kitchen tools, agricultural tools, medical tools... anything.... imaginary or existing... obsolete or yet-to-be... powered or manual.

    If it's your own invention, it should be explained what it is and how it works.


    Time Limit - 60 minutes

    Brilliant, Hopper.

    Nice render, but yeah, you'd best find those wires.

    The Twister...

    Nice one, Hopper!!

    This is a great theme, btw. Lots of options on this one.

    Here's my first one. My chosen tool is called a twister. It was used in Medieval times to attach thatched roofs. Very creative with their tool names, those crazy lords of the trade! Anyways, modelling time was 50 minutes and about 3 hours for texturing and rendering.

    I've added my reference image as well.

    Thanks!! I was pretty happy with the final image. I was surprised at how long something simple like that would take me to model.

    Iain, you did a butcher knife for the "kitchen" challenge and had a huge amount of DOF blurring. Was that done in LW or post? I've been messing around with the Proximity modifier and found a slight change in focus, but nothing that drastic. What's your secret?

    I can't answer for Iain, but minor adjustments of the fstop make a huge difference. That and having DOF preview on in the camera viewport makes it alot easier to get what you want.

    And I wanted to say earlier, what you modeled is exactly the type of direction I hoped this challenge would go in - more towards the obscure than the obvious.

    Awesome. Thanks IMI!! I will do some experimenting with that later.

    Oh, and there are some obscure tools out there!!

    As IMI said, lower the f-stop for heavier blur.

    You can also apply your DOF in post so as not to slow things down too much in LW.

    This is a Trephine-a lovely tool for the art of trepanning.

    They had medicine worked out hundreds of years ago. If there's something wrong with your head, you just need to bore a large hole and let the nastiness out

    35 minutes modelling and about 2 hours texturing and messing around with the scene.

    Ummmm That's totally gross... yeah ... that's the winner right there..! Geez that's some pretty incredible texturing - and at 2 hours, pretty phenominal. That's a 5 star entry right there.

    Agreed with Hopper.
    Man, that's nasty, but amazingly good.

    Oh yah! I'm gonna have nightmares about that thing Iain!

    Well rendered nightmares though!

    Toby that is a nice looking entry as well.

    And of course Hopper never ceases to come up with total cleverness.
