THE Sculpting Challenge - 004 - Real-Life Cartoon



Welcome to the forth challenge of The Speed Sculpting competition. The only place to sculpt.

The Rules:

1. The competition will last one week, which will be allocated to creating and submitting the entries, followed by several days of judging and voting the entries -- at which point the next competition will start.
2. The moderators will be supplying a base mesh for each competition (this week's provided by forum user (insert members name supplying mesh here), from which everyone will start sculpting. This is so we all get an equal start and it keeps us on topic.
3. There will be a time limit for the sculpting. Spend no longer than the allocated time limit, then post a screen-grab of your model. No cheating, we are relying on your honesty here.
4. Do not add any meshes other than those sanctioned in this competition brief.
5. As the base mesh shows, the sculpt is a shoulders, torso and head sculpt only, do not attempt to extend this into a full-body sculpt.
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 sculpts you can produce "under pressure". 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. It's fine to present this stuff nicely, with nice labelling etc, but do not add any post-production to the images themselves. These images must be uploaded to our servers by using the "manage attachments" button on the forum reply page. Do not link to external images 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 have multiple entries, 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 this thread.

These rules apply to everybody taking part, there will be NO exceptions!
We've attached the base mesh at the bottom of this post. Take it and go subdivide.

Prizes
The winner will receive a $200 3D print of their character sculpt, see full details of this amazing prize here.
Our guide for preparing models for 3d printing can also be downloaded here

Time limit - 4 hours
Start Date: Tuesday June 10th
Deadline - Tuesday June 24th, 10:00 AM GMT +0 (For information about GMT click here)
Subject - Real-Life Cartoon.

This time it's about cartoons, from The Simpsons, Dungeons & Dragons, Thundercats, Dangermouse, Count Duckula, M.A.S.K, to Disney, & The Looney Tunes. There's so many cartoons from our past & present you could make a real-life Daffy Duck, or a hyper-realistic Fred Flintstone, a bulky winged Venger from D&D, Akira or even a bespectacled Penfold! The choice is yours!

As before, we're giving you the option of having eyes, there's a separate .obj file provided or you can add eyes yourself as sub-tools (or software equivalent) but you have to pick one or the other of these options, not both. It needs to be a pre-existing cartoon, no making your own cartoons please, also no Superheroes Or Mechas.

Let's see those cartoons come to life...

yeah that one's really cool... truly looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.. I know whom I'll take without any doubt

edit: I'm kinda thrown off-track by the real-life part - do you mean we're to make the cartoons more like realistic characters or should we stick with the cartoony look? call me stupid but I'm confused 0_o
