THE Sculpting Challenge 015: Self Portrait

Sculpt your self portrait!

Welcome to THE Fifteenth Speed Sculpting Challenge. Whether you're new to sculpting, to the Threedy forums, or you're a seasoned veteran, come and join in on the Sculpting madness – there's plenty of fun and learning to be had by all!


The Rules:
1. The competition will run until the 1st May 2009, 12:00 PM GMT+0 (For information about GMT click here); the time between now and then will be allocated to creating and submitting the entries, followed by several days of judging and voting for the entries – at which point the next competition will start.

2. The moderators will be supplying a base mesh for each competition, from which everyone will start sculpting. This is so we all get an equal start and it keeps us on topic. You must work only with the base mesh provided and you must not add any additional base meshes or objects of your own. We simply want you to use your imagination and see what you can come up with what has been provided!

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 meshes show, the sculpt this time starts from a head bust. Do not add any additional objects, SubTools or base meshes to what was given.

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 sculpt you can produce "under pressure". If your entry is not complete, you can still post as long as it's recognisable 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 image 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 create multiple sculpts, 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 the Submissions thread, once it has been set up later on in the Challenge.

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

We've attached the supplied base mesh at the bottom of this post. Take it and go subdivide!

Prizes:
This month's prizes:

1st Place

Any 3 items from the 3DTotal Shop. We sell lots of items these days, such as our books, Texture DVDs, Shorts DVDs, lots of training DVDs, and 12 month subscriptions to 2DArtist Magazine and 3DCreative Magazine

2nd Place

Any 2 items from the 3DTotal Shop (see above)

3rd Place

Any 1 item from the 3DTotal Shop (see above)

Note: We do unfortunately have to limit prizes to 1 book per winner per challenge, due to high postage costs for heavier items. Please note that we cannot offer the 3D Printed models as prizes!

Plus! don't forget the status that comes along with a 1st place Speed Sculpting Winner is always pretty cool! The award you receive is also polished and shiny.

The Brief:

Time limit: 6 hours

Start Date: 2nd April 2009, 12:00 PM GMT+0

Deadline: 1st May 2009, 12:00 PM GMT+0 (For information about GMT click here)

Subject: Self Portrait
Allright, gather round everybody! As we continue to recklessly abuse the suggestion thread, a new challenge arises. We know you have creativity and imagination. We know you have mastered the sculpting tools so far as to make Zeus blush when he throws lightning bolts at stray cats. But have you mastered your own image?

The task at hand is to sculpt yourself in a maximum time frame of five hours. An important addition to the rules this time is that you need also provide a picture of yourself to be presented alongside your final submission ( and your WIPs if you want - that's up to you ).
The Mesh:

This month's base mesh has been is our beloved base mesh that some of you know very well from previous challenges ( such as Manimal, Celebrity Caricature ) created by forum member, Crimson King.

Your base mesh is attached to this post - simply click on the attachment at the end of this post, save the file, import it in the sculpting software of your choice, and you're on your way!

Please note that you mustn't add any more objects – use only what has been provided and nothing more! This is the challenge after all!

Here's your .obj file - download it, have fun & get to work! >>>

You should see us lot then, haha! Just take an 'arty' picture of yourself - doesn't have to be as unflattering as a passport photo (yuk!); just have a go sculpting first and then post your WIPs. If you do something great then you can work on the photo to submit along with your final at the end. Should be fun!

That's a great point, Daye



Now really, this isn't going to be a Miss World contest. We're all 3d maniacs here, and it's all about the challenge of sculpting yourself as accurately as you can. I know I've tried once and it was quite tricky.

We need a photo of everyone who joins so we know you're not pulling our leg here.

I hear everyone at 3DTotal staff is really curious to see this thing get rollin.
By the way, that's my face in the Upper-Right corner of the poster.

Allright, if anyone thinks 5 hours is too little for a self-portrait, I can bump the time limit up to 6 hours. How's everyone feeling about that?

Also, bear with us a little bit as the attachments are off at the moment. I will reupload the basemesh as soon as possible.

Can we submit a different version of ourselves despite how we currently look i.e. shaved beard or a different haircut?

i think as long as its close to the pic we provide, it should be alright, but it would be cooler to do it as you currently look
