I would even love it if those hand drawn sketches could be voted on. :)


Thanks Guys. I agee with you Kwist. .. any and All interpretations of what a "Castle" is or is not or even interpretations of the word "Castle" should be allowed (eg, my chess entry_ It's all about artistic interpretation and fun. \
Afterall, there is no cash involved here. (I do think one of these future challenges should be to design the "Speed Challenge Traveling Virtual Trophy" :D but that is a different subject.

As far as my doodles go, they should not be part of the challenge. . .this is modeling in SU afterall, but I would accept "Miss Congeniality" or something like that. you are too kind. :mrgreen:

I think too we should have some artistic liberties. after all, in the challenge 'Sailing' there was a submarine among the entries :D

Nice doodles David. It's good to see some traditional methods still being employed.

Yes, but that image was done far beyond the time limit.
You placed that text quote a little out of place. What I managed to do within the 30 minute time limit is just the first image in my entry post.... I am not as fast as the power modelers here.


But they, thanks for your comment :)

Here is my first attemp in this contest.

The inspiration come from one of our old Ice Castle in 2001 (http://www.carnaval.qc.ca/ice-palace.html). Just scroll the picture on the bottom of the page.

To be honest, it took me a little bit more than 30 minutes (but less than 33 minutes, I had some problem with the fog!!! :thumbd: ) but it was fun to do.

Oops! The bears are components from wharehouse :oops:

what a nice ice castle. I am already freezing :)
about the over time: I thought setting up fog and textures doesn't count to the 30 minutes anyway. the time limit covers only modeling work. you can take as long as you like to texture the model and play around with fog settings.

Indeed, at the moment the 30 mins is only for modelling.

So modeling doesn't include textures? :)

No, although there are going to be a few amendments next round to try and cut down on the rather large advantage gained by texturing/rendering your work.

bodiam 30 minutes1.jpg


Took exactly 30 minutes. Not finished, but given the time I didn't expect it to be. Started with the Google Earth snapshot and one source picture. Spent 45 minutes on an unsuccessful attempt to put it on the 3DW! :x
bodiam wire.jpg

bodiam textured.jpg


Given the 30 minute time line I figured I'd forget all about modeling solid walls and just draw faces, so plenty of blue faces. I just projected the textures from the outside face onto the blue faces and the result wasn't too bad - at least on the textured model, I think it looks hideous on the wireframe. At first I was just going to model the front of the castle, but quickly decided I'd just copy that face along all four sides of the castle to approximate what the real castle would look like. I

Because of the time, the placement of the other three sides of the castle was very rough indeed. Another facet of pushing against the time limit was that errors were left, rather than corrected.

Pretty impressive! :thumb:
And a real life project, too!

It took me a couple of seconds to relize that you copied the front onto the other three sides to "complete" it but surely it's okay.

I do really like it, thanks for the idea of modeling an existing one!

Nice johnsenior1973.

For the voting you will need to show a non textured "hidden" line version too.

Well here is my attempt. It took 22 minutes without using any rubies... hidden lines are on but there isn't really a lot of geometry to show...

The Horsey is all in a tizzy cuz the best I could come up with was a lame chess thing and there are about 75 Gazillian chess models out there. He's saying,"that's the best you got?" But oh well.

My second try :roflmao:

8 days of work, 17 workers, minus 25 degres today and it's not finished!!!!!

Solo, your work is really awesome. It would be interesting to see my boss as a SU work with Subdivide&Smooth :roflmao:

I wouldn't mind dividing my boss either - although the Zorro plugin would fit him more... :twisted:
