SMC #35 "Ho Ho Holy Moly" - Alternative Christmas


The Fantastic Scorching The Evil Snowman - By Deviantartist Jackaloftrades

The Challenge Rules

1). Each challenge we'll post a subject for you to model along with a time limit on how long you should spend on it. Spend no longer than the allocated time then post a render of your model. No cheating, we are relying on your honesty here and the idea of speed modeling is to simulate a "real world" environment. If you are working on a project and asked to show a concept model you'll need to be able to get somewhere near the target in the allocated time. Your submission should be a model created especially for this challenge and not one you have stored on your hard drive. How you interpret the brief is up to you as long as the final model conforms to what we have asked for. Any images of models that do not match the brief can be removed and the poster disqualified.

2). You may enter as many times as you like as long as each model is completely new and uses no components from other entries. Entries using models which are not original will be removed and the poster disqualified.

3). Your entry may contain as many views of your model as you like and must include a clear and easy to see wireframe of the mesh before any smoothing/subdivision has been applied. Wire renders/ Cell Shaded or Screengrab wireframes are acceptable. Any wireframes we cannot see correctly will be disqualified. The key is for us to be able to see the wireframes clearly to ascertain how you modelled the subject matter.

4). You MUST include the following details with each submission:

A). Software used
B). Time spent creating the model.
C). A Clay Render of your models.

Any further information is voluntary but posts not containing the required information can be removed and the poster disqualified.

5). Post TWO images per entry which must be no larger than 1280x1024 pixels in either landscape or portrait format with a file size of no more than 195k.
1 image for your wireframes and 1 for your clay combined with a optional beauty render.
These images must be uploaded to our servers using the "browse" button on the forum reply page.
Do not link to external images files. Images larger than the maximum size or posts containing links to external images (other than for reference materials)
will be removed and the poster disqualified.

6). The creation of displacement maps, normal maps and any splines drawn out in an external program other than your modeling software are to be included in your modeling time.

7). Time spent on rendering or texturing or building a scene in which to display your model is not included in the allocated period to allow those with slower machines to participate on an even playing field. What we are looking for is the quality of the models you can produce "under pressure". If your model is not complete, you can still post it as long as it's recognizable.

8). Posting the same entry twice in a challenge is considered to be double posting and will result in a disqualification. When asked to fix a previous post due to DQ or any other reason, you must fix the first post, or delete it altogether and create a new one.

9). The Winner must email jo@3dtotal.com to claim their prize.

10). Only 1st place & 2nd place (i.e. the runner up) can claim a prize.

These rules apply to everybody taking part there will be NO exceptions!

My Starter




Quite pleased with the results of this character, the good old symmetry object was used in the early stages then collapsed to form one whole mesh. A touch of tweaking here and there, although I ran out of time when it came to posing the arms and hands, I still don't know how to rig and pose a character properly

The topic... uuuNNNNGGGGHHHHH.... MUST.... STOP... THE... VOICES!

wow you have done it this time. Just reading the brief I had several ideas. Some of them... pretty ugly. I am deffo in on this one.

I do not know how many of you have played World of Warcraft back in 2009, but there has been Christmas achievement - to pelt all the opposing faction leaders with BB gun. I havent been playing for a year or so, but since I have many friends there, I wanted to send them a card. And since I am not exactly up to date with wow events, I used this old theme. Just for fun, but it fits this weeks topic

I think the general consensus from previous competitions is that no zbrush is not allowed for the main thing. You can use it for about 10% of the final model, the rest has to be done in a program like 3DS, Maya, Solidworks etc

As silverflame correctly mentions you can only use it for a tiny amount of the modelling process such as normal, bump, displacements maps etc.
