Speed Modelling Competition #26 Flower Power

Speed Modelling Competition #26 Flower Power

Postby remus » Mon May 17, 2010 7:36 am

Flower Power



The rules:
-30 mins max modelling time
-unlimited prep time (thinking, sketching, looking for pics etc. NO MODELLING!)
-I will ask people to judge the models on time taken to model, quality of the model and originality of the idea.
-Multiple entries are allowed, keep it sensible though.
-Please provide a wire frame shot of your model when you post.
-Sketchup output only (and as much as i know you love rendering your models, it would be appreciated if you could hold of posting them in the gallery until after the comp.)
-Any texturing should be done within the modelling time.

Comp closes at 6:00 PM GMT on 31st May.

Good luck!

Oh flowers... that sounds challenging indeed.

I've just done one, but I won't be the first posting an image...

No flowers yet?
I want to see some petals!
BTW, I'll post my model, but after that I'll need some help with organic modeling... Is not normal to spend half of my 1/2 hour giving shape to just one petal... of a simple tulip! The rest was easy
Maybe I won't post this one because the mesh is a mess (lol) and I'll choose an easier model

So I made an orchid (and ran out of time...), and then a water lilly (it came out "nice")... but at the end I prefered my first option, the tulip.
Besides, posting the model I had troubles with is the best way to get feedback on the modeling of petals.
30 min (coloring included). Close to 20 for just the petal component.

Nice! What plugin (if any) did you use for your petals?

Hi Rick
I'd say I've used every plugin I have! lol

.draw a curve with bezier spline.
.Extrude edges by lathe
.Fredo scale - radial bending (here I should have stoped)
.Sandbox trying to get a bether organic shape...
.gave up (that is not a plugin...)

Untill radial bending the time spent was less than 5 mins...
but I still can't get the shape I want :?

Decided to have a go on my lunch break.
Did not get it finished, quite a few details missing but from a distance it's ok.

A Floor Lamp.

Yup. Actually, it was included when SU became "open" to ruby plugins in version 4. And until version 6, it was not even included into the free version of SU (nor animation export, print to scale, 2D export larger than screen resolution etc.)

ok guys you can't vote for this one, 'cause it took me way more than half an hour since SU kept crashing. I should know better than to try to model fur that has fur on it... :mrgreen:

What is not a plugin (and that was what I was refering to) is giving up, lol
Pyroluna, I liked your idea!
I supose you made one "furred" seed as a component and sprayed again around a sphere?

You won't believe it, but to save time I used the fur plugin fot the 3 leaves in my entry :D and then I moved them where I needed them

Wouldnt exactly say I'm pushing the boundaries here, but modelling only took me about 15 mins. Spent the next 15 mins trying to get the plywood material right and failed!

My first attempt at speed modeling so be kind!

ps its based on the 'flower chair' by Icelandic Studiobility
