Speed modelling challenge #2 Halloween

Speed modelling challenge #2 Halloween

Postby remus » Wed Oct 01, 2008 7:37 am

Same as last time:

-30 mins max modelling time
-unlimited prep time (thinking, sketching, browsing the internet 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.
-Please try and keep your submission to one post in this topic, i.e. make a post and use it for all your prep work as well, just edit it each time you need to add stuff.
-Multiple entries are also allowed, keep it sensible though.

Final deadline 2 weeks form now (15th October.)

well, then I will start the second challenge with my humble model.

the image tells the sad story about a lonely gost, that lived in a small hut far near the black forrest (west Germany). one day he went into the garden, like every night, to admire the proud rose bushes - but they were gone!
utterly depressed, he killed himself... unfortunately he didn't succeed (because he was a gost, of course).
and so the poor guy started haunting his neighbours instead...



a short description of how I created the model:
- first I created a cube, divided it's side faces a few times and extruded them different lengths.
then I run Subdivide&Smooth (2 iterations). I drew outlines for eyes and mouth on a plane, extruded them
and intersected with the ghost shape
- for the ground I used the sandboxtool from scratch
- the fence is basically a repetition of 7 vertical planks plus two horizontal ones within a component.
I then used the smart drop ruby to drop them on the terrain and automatically adjust their rotation
- the building was drawn with basic tools, then subdivided twice and finally distorted with FFD.
I added window components and door seperately to make them look a bit ascew.



thanks remus for taking responsibility again to set up the challenge. and thanks solo for a great topic
now I am looking forward to all the creepy designs that will follow :)

[Edit] my model is more than 2Mb. thats why I didn't upload it. but I assure you, windows and fences were components...

One of my fondest memories of years past has
been watching It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
and seeing Snoopy as the WWI flying Ace.

So, this is my first shot at the Halloween challenge.
30 min. to model (my wrist hurts) and about 10 to color up.
Subdivide and Smooth and Free Form Deformation were used
as well as tools on surface and Joint Push Pull.
If I had just a bit more time I would have done
a better dog house 8-)

yours looks more like a medieval townhouse anyway than an old shack. but it definitely seems ghost-inhabited :?

great detail - rainwater pipes and all. I like the crooked columns very much!

(by the way: we are allowed to post comments, right? only our designs are supposed to be concentrated in one post!?)

thanks by the way, always good to hear something good about your work.

This is gonna be tougher than first thought. :thumb:

My first attempt, I wanted a scary looking tree, I used 'Sub-divide' as you can see, had to leave it as this as I was running out of time.

Each and every one of these is exceptional. Great visual assets in all the render styles.
Great examples of modeling skill...which has to include a very solid work flow method for each. Proud to hang around you guys!!

All the entries so far are really cool. It's hard to believe that they were done in 30 minutes...makes me want to erase my copy of SU and go back to scribbling with MS Paint! I love your disco scary tree Pete...all he needs is the white suit!

They all look good. It would be interesting to see them combined into one scene.

I'd be happy to oblige, i'll probably do it towards the end of the comp, though, so we've got some more stuff to put in.

Oh, and dont forget to keep posting your entries, however 'rubbish' they are :)

Hi Remus, hi folks.

One of the gutter has no drain pipe. However, with such a crooked house it is probably OK ;)

Here is a quickie "rubbish" one I just did. Less than 10 min modeling time... but there are no points for finishing early right ;)

Anyhoo... insert any word here and make your own joke.

Thanks Remus. . .about the hand. . . .No, sadly I did not. I pulled it off of the warehouse or something. . ..It's a bit beyond my capability. I could probably do it if it was a 30 Year challenge. :mrgreen:
