    Speed Modelling Challenge #26 - Timepieces

    Speed Modelling Challenge #26 - Timepieces


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ************************************************** *******
    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 - Timepieces.
    Clocks, watches, sundials, hourglasses, new or old or futuristic, or any other devices you can think up that track or measure time.

    Time Limit - 60 minutes

    Deadline - Wednesday 25 February 2200 GMT.

    I'm guessing that the "Core" timer is off-limits?

    It might be a little stretch to call it a time piece but it does time travel
    The TARDIS from Doctor Who.
    The full 60 min on modeling.

    Very nice, but indeed not quite in line with the theme...

    Sands of Time

    Here's another, which took just about 50 minutes to model, but I'm gonna try to do the materials a bit more justice...

    [edit] OK, now some materials...

    Embarrassing as it is, another failure to beat the clock (and oh the irony with this topic). Next time Gadget, next time!

    Figured I'd post it anyway.

    Rudy beat me to the punch with the hour glass. Here's my version. It took me all of the 60 minutes to model it. Even the sand is modeled. I'd like to tweak the textures some more. We'll see. I tried to do ray tracing, but that was taking forever. Hope to post wires soon. I'm still using 8.5.

    tHREEL, but you can call me AL.

    For those who can't afford a clock.

    This took about 20 mins to model the candle, mainly mucking about with the drip, with another 5 mins or so for the holder.

    Dunno why it has this slightly stylised / superimposed look, but hey, I'm sure one of you guys will explain it.

    EDIT: Ahh Hades! Just spotted that the handle sticks through the base

    Take a minute

    A second one from me, the full hour again. You may notice that the ticks dont line up quite right but I ran out of time to fix them.

    Eggs, anybody?

    One more, just 'cuz I could. This one took the full hour to model, cuz I had to wrap my head around how to "fan out" the top and bottom supports.
