SMC #102 "Darkness Falls Across The Land" - Halloween


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 THREE 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 & 1x final optional composite for beauty renders.
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 adam@3dtotal.com to claim their prize.

10). Only 1st place & 2nd place (i.e. the runner up) can claim a real world prize, however 1st, 2nd & Honourable mentions all get awards.

1st Place - Get this award
2nd Place - Get's this award
Honourable Mention - Get's this award

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

Subject: Halloween.
Deadline - 10:00PM GMT Friday 7th November 2014
Description: In this challenge i'd like to see your best Halloween themed models from Pumpkins to Chainsaws, Knives, Scary Masks, Witches & cauldrons the lot

Guess I'll get the ball rolling on this one! First time submitting for a 3D Total Challenge, hopefully I've included everything I need.

Used the full 120min for the modeling, and spent about an hour playing with lighting/renders. Modeled with Maya 2015, render in VRay 3.0, post in AE.

edit: uploaded a timelapse of the modeling process.

Thanks for the positive feedback guys.

Rocneasta, some nails would certainly be a great idea, not sure how I didn't think of that! I'm thinking about taking the coffin into zbrush to sculpt some more detail into the wood, so I'll definitely add some nails as well. Thanks for the idea.

Stepping Down...

Hiya everyone, it's with a heavy heart I have to say that i've gotta step down as a mod here, recently my personal and working life has gained more and more of my free time, I still visit frequently, but can no longer dedicate any more time & effort towards the speed modelling or photo modelling challenges. I hope to still visit as often as possible and wish to thank everyone for making my time here as a moderator a happy one, i've made some great friends and had a blast creating my own artwork for everyone to share with.

Thanks for over 8000 posts, 753 thanks, & 8 years of speed modelling, moderating & judging

See you all soon
