    Speed Modelling Challenge #28 - Food, glorious food

    Speed Modelling Challenge #28 - Food, glorious food
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ************************************************** *******
    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 - Food, glorious food.
    Pretty self explanatory, anything from a piece of fruit to a bowl of cereal. The focus need not be solely the food, a knickebocker glory or even a gravy boat (with gravy of course) will be fine.

    The world is your oyster!

    Time Limit - 60 minutes

    Deadline - Wednesday 11 March 2200 GMT.
    Sentenced to 310 years for crimes against modelling and rendering.

    Hmm. I should be able to sink my teeth into that subject, as long as I don't bite off more than I can chew.

    Just a simple peasant dish

    I couldn't leave this one for the last moment 'cause I'm sure someone else is going to try it soon!

    Remy did not seem to add green zucchini, just yellow, but I'm sure it was just because it was not in season. It clearly adds an extra freshness and... well... we shouldn't just follow the recipe, right?

    The sauces were modeled as just points in three layers and then had HVs applied during the texturing time. The tabletop was not modeled during the hour but it's just a flat cylinder; I just didn't think about it until after the texturing :P

    LOL! I was going to re-post last week's entry but I was afraid someone would take this one too quickly.

    PS: Sorry for interrupting the juicy streak of such savory puns.

    Edit: Changed the render for one with dome lights instead of distants.

    Awesome job there JCG, fab stuff.

    My first entry: Chili peppers.

    22 mins for modelling, about 2 hours all told trying to get the look of everything right!

    Model available as always.

    Great texturing! I know a good, ripe pepper can look unreal, like it's made of wax or something. I'd soften the reflection a bit, but otherwise, it's ready for a food magazine.

    Cheers Dude. I'm with you on the reflection, I may re-visit the render at some point to dial the reflection and specular back a bit. Might stick a green one in too!

    I wish I'd been keeping up with these challenges, I'm way far behind on what's happened lately.

    Excellent peppers, flakester!

    This is something I've found really difficult in the past so I'm going to try a few things out.
    Pixar just made it look too easy.

    Great entries so far

    Cheers Dude.

    Second one from me: Candy canes.

    I was going to do a normal stick of rock, but I thought it might look like a bit of a cop-out.... so I curved the end!

    About 35 mins for the modelling; most of which was spent trying to get nice curve on the handle. Roughly 1 hr 15 mins for the rest.

    Model and scene available should anyone feel the need.

    @Iain: :agree: The rise in modelling, material, texture, lighting and shader quality from Pixar from the time of Nemo to The Incredibles through to Ratatouille is just awesome, I sometimes feel as though they make the real world look a touch bland. It's good to have something to aim for!!
