The New SMC's - 023 - I feel pretty...

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 but it must include a clear and easy to see wire frame of the mesh before any smoothing/subdivision has been applied. Please use a screen grab. No other method is acceptable and any "wire renders" or wireframes we can't see properly will be removed and the poster disqualified.

4, You must include the following details with each submission: software used and time spent creating the model. Any further information is voluntary but posts not containing the required information can be removed and the poster disqualified.

5, Post only one image submission per entry which must be no larger than 1024x768 pixels in either landscape or portrait format with a file size of no more than 195k. 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 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.

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


Time limit - 60 minutes
Deadline - 22.00 G.M.T. Wednesday 12th of March 2008
Subject - Cosmetics / Beauty Care products

Cosmetics / Beauty Care products: Now don't tell my that I'm the only one here who's ever tried on their mother's lipstick and when they got caught, tried to play it off as ketchup! We've all done it... haven't we? Well we're just looking for a scene with at least 3 different types of cosmetics or beauty care products. So stop looking in the mirror and start modeling!



Have Fun and Good Luck!

I assume you don't want us to model paper bags with eye holes cut out of them?

Classic Gamer - Entry #01

Just a quick first entry. Fairly pleased with the modelling, but my texturing and lighting lacks something.

All information is on the composite.

Kind Regards

Classic Gamer

Just model and post. The only thing to be aware of are the rules, follow the guidelines as it pertains to time spent on models, how to present them, subjects, etc. These rules are always posted as the first post of every new challenge.

Welcome!

undivided809 - a warm welcome to the forums, and as ravenlp rightly says, just follow the guidelines, make sure you're composite is no bigger than 1024x768 in either portrait or landscape form and that you've modelled everything from scratch in the time frame.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Kind Regards

Classic Gamer
