- Please provide a Wireframe or Hidden Line image, an Untextured image and a Textured image of your model (800x600)

And the rules ask for (max?) 800x600px, which means that none of the images follow the rules.
No voting this time then, and no winners ;)
I first thought this was just a joke, but now I'm not so sure any longer...
I think it is great that some people spend a lot of time on this challenge!
Lots of nice models :)

Uhh, I'm pretty sure all images (besides Anthony's but I think he's fixed them now) are under 800x600.

Well, mukul.ar's images were 958px wide!!!! ;-)
Sorry, but I can't really take this discussion seriously..

my works were originally incarcerated at 800X600
this other resolution is less than

you're that serious discussion on here about image resolution? (download any my job and look at the Photoshop resolution) are full of talk about nothing

I've updated the rules for the pedantic farts....

To clarify

[a] Maximum of 3 entries (we'll test this for this challenge to see if members prefer this method)

[b] Maximum 800 x 600 (this to keep page loading times down)

[c] Have fun (this is the most important part

The challenge is extended by 2 days to allow for the confusion/rulebreaking/bickering/farting ;)

Let's get back on track with some quality entries

There's a lot been said in the past few hours. I am not uploading the images again. The ones put up on the forum do show up on a much smaller resolution. You have to click on them to see a slightly larger version. 800 by 600 is a guideline to help out users with slow internet connections. If my composition is such that the image is more wide than tall then a 800 by 350 image does no justice to that...

This challenge need not be extended. This has always been on a gentleman's word. cj_sniper is right in saying that if someone wants to cheat they will photoshop the clock. Limiting the entries for the next competition would be nice. But changing any rules midway of a competition is not in the right spirit. (Just an opinion)

Just checked the image size visible on the forum for my entry (without clicking to see a larger image) is 640 by 360. People who upload images directly on the forum have their's resized automatically. Probably those using the image code and using a separate host site for the image have their pictures visible a bit larger on the sketchucation forum.

Great stuff - I'm amazed as usual at the amount of detail you guys get in these models in 30 minutes - tire treads, wrench parts etc... wow.

Anyway here is my entry. Simple but I'm happy I was able to get a bit more done in 30 minutes than usual. The 'dirt' was quickly made with the Component Spray plugin.

This will be usefull to carry all those tools you are modelling.
Ok, maybe not the grass cutter...

Around 25 minutes. I'm not exactly sure about the time.
The geometry is not too clean, I know, but I can't work clean and fast at the same time :S

I think I'll install that counter you mentioned here...

Ok, the tools I've used.
bezier spline
curviloft
mmmh , I think that's it
ohhh lying, lying, lying.
I used fredo scale too

:roflmao: Damn, this is a great topic.

great models and great replies :D :thumb:
I'm still thinking. It's hard to choose a good product to model.

I see the rules are changed. :thumb:

My opinion is; One oppertunity, one chance. it's not only how great the model is, it's also the idea. :ugeek:

Oh dear God, quit your bitching. Go ahead and make your models CJ and post them in the gallery, nobody is stopping you, they just won't be a part of the challenge.

I just don't think you get the point that a bunch of models in a competition (more than one really) cancels yourself out of actually winning, you are competing against yourself for votes. Take some time, decide on a model, make it great and then hope you win.

If you want to remove what you have already posted in this challenge and choose one for the voting then you can do that also.

This thread has gotten way out of control and is already taking the fun out of this challenge. I am not sure we don't discontinue doing them altogether.

Please stop complaining and focus on the modeling. If you do that you might win one of the upcoming challenges.

Ditto to that. I'm really put off that this fun competition is turning into a showcase for some. :roll:

Whilst the rules don't suit everyone they were aimed at keeping things simple and making it FUN. It's probably the last one I'll setup :thumbd:

I Agree with Rich and Tobobo. This time around it doesn't seem so much fun... Its never been this way at the forum... :cry:

Thats even more saddening.

+1 to that. This time around it doesn't feel like the friendly spirit this competition used to be in. I do not want my entry in the voting.

I hope this contest is not hurt by just a little controversy. I still enjoy being a member... Anyways, my entry is a high end adjustable tension hacksaw. I actually have one of those. It is a great tool. With the right blade and the right tension I can cut inch thick spring steel with it.

I wasn't going to enter but an idea hit me.

30 minutes, quicker and I would have done the elastic for the mask.
Plugins, Draw Sphere and Torus and Shape Bender, oh and Fredoscale to quickly bend the lettering.


Probably more suitable to the visual puns and puzzles thread.

Some great entries. I do have a question - is it ok to ask them in the contest thread? I see the teeth on the hacksaw blade. Do you have a quick way of doing these? I have done smaller ones and just grab every other vertex or model one and copy, group, copy but figured I'd ask if there is a shortcut.

You can use the array copy function.

Using the move tool.
Press Control so it copies.
Move it the distance required.
Then type * and the number of copies you want.
Press Enter

Or use copy along path, or if it's more complex, Chris Fullmers' Component Stringer.
