Old School - Speed Sculpt

Sculpting Challenge #10
Subject Ė Old School



Speed Sculpts Ė Post all work in this thread


Never forget where you come fromÖ.

With the release of the PS4 and Xbox One, video game graphics have never looked better. But letís not forget where these games started. 8 bit video games got us going. Games like Super Mario Brothers and Donkey Kong, kings of their respective day look like crap now. Letís change that. Letís take characters and vehicles from those old school video games and give them their well deserved face lifts. Letís see what an old school game would look like now.


Due Date: Sunday March 2nd 11:59pm GMT


Idea:

Pick oneÖ

Character Ė Take an old school video game character and recreate/redesign them with more up to date game specs. Think Atari, Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis.

Vehicle Ė Take an old school video game vehicle and recreate/redesign with more up to date game specs. Think Atari, Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis

Textures are not mandatory, but if you do add color to your sculpt; try to keep it at a minimum.

Pedestals/Stands:

You do not have to create one, but it would be nice if you did. You can go as crazy as you want, or keep it basic.


Restrictions:

- You will have 5 hours to complete your sculpt.

-Joint entries are not allowed for this challenge.

-Your entry must be specifically created for this challenge. Do not use any pieces from previous works.

-You will be supplying your own base mesh for the competition, from which you will sculpt from. You can create your base mesh in any application (3dsmax, Maya, XSI, Cinema4D, Zspheres in Zbrush, etc) using any technique. Donít use any pre-made base meshes, you must build it specifically for this challenge.

-Creation of your base mesh does not count towards your sculpting time.

-There are no lighting restrictions.
