The New Weekly Photo Modelling Challenge #28 - Talkboy

How Does This Work Then?

Each week or two myself or 3D Total's photo resource will provide a set of photo's to model from.

Each challenge we would like all who participate to model from the same references to learn, improve or showcase your ability in modelling from a photo set.

In my version of this challenge there are no limits to how many tris/quads you wish to use, but I would like to see you all try to match the photo as closely as possible in size & shape aswell as texturing too.

The Rules

Please post your wires, clays, & any texture sheets and final renders in this thread, wip and on topic chat is also fine here too, these challenges are supposed to be fun and we are not too strict on the rules.

The Prizes

The only prizes are a gold, silver and bronze awards dictated by these lovely little icons

Deadline Date: Friday 10.00pm GMT 31st January 2014

Deadline Timer

This Weeks Challenge:

In this challenge we're are returning to a high detail, injection molded plastic object that's fairly famous in the film Home Alone 2..... it's the Talkboy or Deluxe Talkboy to be exact. There's plenty of interesting curvature and tricky elements to get right and I feel the final model will look great and instantly recognisable once modelled.

Reference Pictures

Photo Ref Archive (About 9MB)
I've tried to get the best images I could, finding rear pictures was particularly difficult, but there's always the film itself for reference
