    Speed Modeling Challenge #44 - And The Winner Is

    Speed Modeling Challenge #44 - And The Winner Is

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

    ************************************************** *******
    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.

    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.

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

    Subject - And The Winner Is

    AdamAvenali suggested that
    "I was actually thinking it would be cool if maybe the next challenge was to model a trophy or something and we could make it into an avatar sized image and if you win you get to put it in your sig or something. i think i saw something like that over on game-artist.net"

    And who am I to say no

    Simplicity and clean lines I think would be the key to this challenge. If it is something to be used in a sig it needs to be easy to read and understand in a fairly small image.

    The winning image will also be used as the logo on the Lightwave Speed Modeling Group page.

    I don't think I should pick a winner for this one. It should be by popular vote.

    Time Limit - 60 minutes

    Deadline - Wednesday 01 July 2200 GMT

    Great idea, Nothing like a cyber-trophy to bring out a little extra effort.

    Not so much a trophy as a badge or maybe medal

    I actually like the badge better than a normal trophy.

    Here's my first try. Maybe I'll try another later.

    20 minutes modeling.
    1 Hour surfacing.
    2 minutes rendering.

    Nice work James, A little micro bevel on the edges would really help sell it.

    Here's the model modified with slight beveled edges on the nameplate and clear part.

    15 minutes added to original modeling time. Total 35 minutes.

    I decided to go with the more traditional trophy for this one.
    Modeling took about 40 mins and about 30 for texture and rendering.
    Great job from everyone so far!!!!!!!

    Question:

    What's holding the LW Logo in place on your trophy? It seems to be floating. Should have a string or a fine gold or peuter chain letting it dangle.

    It is floating! I actually had a chain in there but didn't like the look so I opted for the floating unrealistic logo.
