Vs Challenge Rules

This is a new VS challenge we will be having every 1 month or so. It isn’t for any prizes just for some practice and to learn from your peers. I will give a subject then you and the other challengers will have 1 month to finish modeling the subject. This is just a modeling/texturing exercise to help show your technique and workflow to others as well as learning how someone else approaches the same subject. Also this is a good way to help you keep deadlines on short notice, very important in the real world.

There will be an inorganic, Lowpoly, and organic challenge every month or so. If you would like to join please post all wips in the open VS thread.

This is NOT a “who is a better modeler” challenge. This is a healthy challenge to improve your self and others in the contest. So please no “that model is better than this model” just keep it clean and constructive with critiques.

I will provide the initial reference. But please feel free to find as much as you can on your own.




Any questions, comments, or suggestion please post in this thread or Pm me.

Goat, I really think we should make it whoever wants to do it, I see no reason putting a cap on people, if they want to join, let them join

i fi don't get into one of the comps, and I like the comp idea, I will be making a thread for the comp (but I won't be in the comp) cause I still want to do it.

I think there should be no comp, if you say this is a good healthy thing to do, let everyoine take part and practice.

seems logical to me... I'd really like to be involved in these small challenges as its great to have a common goal that everyone can work towards etc, by all means have some sort of vote to work out the top 4 out of everyones work small incentives like that are really helpfull imho.

Well the reason I only make it 4 is because it would just be a regular comp if I didn't. Keeping a cap on it retains the theme of VS. If I get a ton of people wanting to do the comp I will run more than 1 at a time. That should solve the problem. Sound good? So in one way or another people will be able to compete.


Also I'm on vacation till mon so sorry I won't be able to answer any question for then next few days.

Sry I didn't comment on it beore but I think its a great idea. You'd have to get each person to agree on certain tasks tough...depending on the person they may slack off or try taking over the whole thing. It would have to be worked out more.
