SMC #93 "A Heady Mix" - Helmets


The Challenge Rules

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 and must include a clear and easy to see wireframe of the mesh before any smoothing/subdivision has been applied. Wire renders/ Cell Shaded or Screengrab wireframes are acceptable. Any wireframes we cannot see correctly will be disqualified. The key is for us to be able to see the wireframes clearly to ascertain how you modelled the subject matter.

4). You MUST include the following details with each submission:

A). Software used
B). Time spent creating the model.
C). A Clay Render of your models.

Any further information is voluntary but posts not containing the required information can be removed and the poster disqualified.

5). Post THREE images per entry which must be no larger than 1280x1024 pixels in either landscape or portrait format with a file size of no more than 195k.
1 image for your wireframes and 1 for your clay combined with & 1x final optional composite for beauty renders.
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 it 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.

9). The Winner must email adam@3dtotal.com to claim their prize.

10). Only 1st place & 2nd place (i.e. the runner up) can claim a prize.

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

Subject: Helmets.
Deadline - 10:00PM GMT Friday 7th March 2014
Description: In this challenge i'd like you to create a helmet, this could take the form of a robot helmet, Ironman's Headgear maybe, the Daft Punk helmets, a roman helmet, a helmet from World War i or II, maybe a helmet from a future war, a drinks helmet that holds beer or a workman's helmet..... there's plenty to choose from.

Deadline Timer

Modelling Time: 120 Mins.

Prizes:

1st Place - 30 worth of 3DTotal downloadable products & a gold award badge.
2nd Place - 10 worth of 3DTotal downloadable products & a silver award badge.
Honourable Mentions - Bronze Award Badges

Above All Else Have Fun & Good Luck!

My Starter

Was very limited with time to get this one done, not happy with it at all but at least I managed to get a starter done.

Hey guys, new to these forums. I'm definitely interested in participating in this challenge. I recently modeled a World War 1 German helmet a couple months ago along with the gas-mask. Obviously I won't use that for the contest, but since the subject is helmets I'll have some fun with participating on this one. I might go with something Sci Fi / futuristic. Wish me luck.

Thank you, glad to be apart of these forums and challenges.

Here is my submission for the challenge already. It's an improvised Sci Fi futuristic helmet that I whipped up on the fly (no concept). Perhaps it could've belonged to a bounty hunter from Star Wars, or a Weyland Yutani mercenary.

Modeled In: 3D Studio Max 2014
Modeling Time: 113 minutes
Lighting: Skylight with HDRI map, MR glare camera filter for the eye
Shader Creation Time: 20 minutes
Render Time: 2 minutes 35 seconds
Rendered In: 3D Studio Max 2014
Rendered With: Mental Ray
Photoshop Composite Time: 5 minutes
Polycount: 150,000

Wireframe, clay, and the final beauty render:
