The Lost Jungle - Sculpting - Female Amazon Warrior ( Nudity Warning )

The Lost Jungle: Female Amazon Warrior

Welcome to the Twenty-fourth Speed Sculpting Challenge. Whether you're new to sculpting, to the Threedy forums, or you're a seasoned veteran, come and join in on the Sculpting madness – there's plenty of fun and learning to be had by all!



1. The competition will run until the 30th of April 2010, 11:59 PM GMT+0 (For information about GMT click here); the time between now and then will be allocated to creating and submitting the entries, followed by several days of judging and voting for the entries.

2. You will be supplying your own base mesh for the competition, from which you will start sculpting. You can create your base mesh in any application ( 3dsmax, Maya, XSI, Cinema4D, Zspheres in Zbrush, etc ) using any technique, with no limits. Do not use an already made base mesh, you must build it specifically for this challenge.

3. There is no longer a fixed time limit for your sculpting. Quality over quantity.

4. Do not add any meshes other than those sanctioned in this competition brief.

5. You will have to supply a wireframe screenshot of your base mesh/meshes along with your final entry image ( see rule 7 ).

6. No rendering, texturing, lighting or rigging – let's keep it all about the high-res sculpt! What we are looking for is the quality of the sculpt you can produce. If your entry is not complete, you can still post as long as it's recognizable and on topic.

7. For your final entry, post a screen-grab from your software with your finished work in it, along with your screenshot of the base meshes used ( see rule 5 ). It's fine to present this stuff nicely, with nice labeling etc., but do not add excessive post-production to the images themselves that may alter their aesthetics. These images must be uploaded to our servers by using the "Manage Attachments" button on the forum reply page. Do not link to external image files. Larger than the maximum size or posts containing links to external images (other than for reference materials) will be removed and the poster disqualified.

8. You can create multiple sculpts, but you can have only one final entry for each competition.

9. Do not create your own WIP thread. Simply post all WIP screen-grabs in here and your FINAL entry in the Final Submissions thread here.

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

Time limit: None

Start Date: 1st April 2010

Deadline: 30th April, 11:59 PM GMT+0 (For information about GMT click here)

Subject: Female Amazon Warrior


This challenge is about creating a female character with two traits: mesmerizing beauty and ferocious power. The amazon warriors of legend are cults of female warriors, that show off as much of their perfectly toned bodies as possible. They are the wild agile fighters of the jungle, stalking their foes before striking with their bows or spears.

So let's see the most gorgeous and deadly female amazon warriors you can sculpt. If you do nudity in your pieces, keep it PG-13 and artistically proper. I'm ( and I bet all male members of the forum ) looking forward to the entries. There is no time limit for this challenge, so you can spend all the time you need on all the little details and accessories of your amazon. The most important aspect we're looking for is your sculpt's personality.

For some background info on the amazons, go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazons

As always, you can choose a realistic style for your sculpt, but you can also try your hand at a stylized version as well. You can do a head or a bust, but a full body sculpt is extremely recommended.

Let's try this out:
Download the free application CamStudio here, and record your progress on the sculpt ( set it to save about one frame per second ). You will not have to display it to the public, only to the judges in case you qualify in the top three. Of course, you don't need to complete the whole sculpt in one sitting, so just resume recording whenever you return to the sculpt ( multiple video recording files are acceptable ). Feedback on this idea is welcome!

Please read all the rules and brief carefully. If there are any further questions, ask and they shall be answered.

Nice subject.
Is it still a need to maintain the camstudio recording while there's no more time limit?

can't we limit it at severals screenshots all along the wip?

I don't think we have to record our sculpt, it think Freespace just copy-pasted the rules from the previous challenge and forgot to remove that part.

Anyway it's cool there is no time limit on the sculpt, I expect to see a lot of quality sculpts out there.

As for me, it will be the occasion to practice myself at sculpting female anatomy (which I have never done) and to test that graphic tablet I just bought

Actually I thought people could still record in order to post their progress. It's not to check up on you if you respect the ( currently defunct ) timelimit, it's to see your progress either for verification ( in case something suspicious may happen ) or in case you want to release it as a tutorial.

I'm really looking forward to some amazons. Let loose your creativity.

Ok, but are we really forced to record, or we can choose if we record or not?

Not forced at all. It's a suggestion, and if you do record it you don't have to post it anywhere. It's just something good to have in case it would be requested.

This is about fun, learning and cool sculpting. We're not gonna go "Big Brother" on you.
