    Speed Modelling Challenge #34 - At the end of the garden

    Speed Modelling Challenge #34 - At the end of the garden
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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


    ************************************************** *******
    Lightwave Speed Modeling Group

    Subject - At the end of the garden.
    The dark corner at the back of the garden where all the cast offs end up The strange little plant that no one can quite recognise, the rusted remains of that wheel barrow, that thing that moves when no one is looking.
    You know the sort of thing, have fun


    Time Limit - 60 minutes

    Deadline - Wednesday 22 April 2200 GMT.

    Funny, I was thinking Aviary myself.
    Too old to die young.

    My wife should enter this competition. She's an avid gardener. Unfortunately, she does not know much about using a computer. Nevermind the 3D modeling
    I have a dark corner in my yard. It is full of rocks, old grass and sticks.

    I like it, it's about time for some plants! RFeeney, you can enter this one since you can't win it anyways.

    Kinda a cool topic, too bad there aren't any other submissions yet.
    Lightwave, 60 minutes of modelling and a bunch of time to try (and fail) at setting up a decent render. Hope I have the needed renders. It says 600x800 renders and a wireframe so I guess this should probably be okay. I was trying to get the really dejected feel so there's the smaller pot with a limpy plant inside and there's the much larger and healthier flower, renders didn't work but I think I got the spirit of the comp anyways

    You have the needed renders. Although, just a tip, I'd apply some antialiasing (AA) to your renders. It'll help show where creases and polygons are showing on your models. I usually use the perspective camera with adaptive sampling turned on.

    Nice attempt Tharizidium, extra points for jumping in like that

    I was making a mushroom character but Modeler crashed before I could save it. The second attempt didn't turn out as well, but I should get lucky on the third go

    Thanks for joining Tharizidium, seems to be a slow week this time.

    I have Something built, just need to find a bit of time for a render and the surfacing too.

    Damn, this is a slow week. I might see if I can get something in, but not if I get home after 23:00 which is becoming too regular an occurrence for me. Wasn't planning to enter as I'm trying to focus on other areas in my free time, but I'd hate to see these challenges fade away.

    @Tharizidium, nice job, these challenges are a great vehicle for moving you onwards and upwards. I like the thought that's gone into your entry.

    Well, the category is "At the end of the garden". So, here's an entry from me.

    It's supposed to be the flaming sword that blocks the entrance on the east end of the Garden of Eden. I didn't do any composite work. The backdrop was used for just that. The render with the more orange sword was illuminated by the particle driven flame only, no lights. The other version had lighting to light the sword only. The flame was excluded in the lights' lists. I think the flame has more of a yellow tint to the second render, due to the lights' reflections off the sword. Also, I've added a wire frame shot.

    Modeling time: 60 minutes
    Layout and getting the flame close to passable: Forever
    Render time for each frame: Almost 3 Hrs. PDL 9 pass

    Thanks for all the help! @adamredwoods I tried that and really does help. Seems funny that something so simple has been so evasive recently. Too bad there's not more entries though. Maybe everybody else is in my position but actually doing their work =) I have my big IB exams coming up so I haven't had much time. I tried playing around with the settings for a bit though, and managed to improve. It worked really well with just AA but I decided to try adding Depth of Field and Fog to add to the effect, which I think made it closer to the scene which I first had imagined. Still some bugs to work out, but I think I'm going to have to wait for summer. Thanks for the help again though.
    @Threel-That's a really cool idea and the model looks pretty good. Would great to model because the topology won't bend and shows exactly where to paint everything. Cool work!
