"Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space." Douglas Adams

I think it would be interesting to have challenges, inspired by a particular theme.

So items could be:

- Space Shuttle
- U.F.O.
- Aliens
- Communication Satellite
- Space Stations
- Galaxies
- Planetary Systems
- Asteroid Fields
- etc.

Speed Modelling is all about the learning experience, try to force yourself to finish your project in 3 hours. (Warning: If it takes longer a space monster will come and eat you)

Post a wireframe, clay render and/or final render.

I hope you enjoy the theme!

Hi there, interesting topic, I have someting in mind. My question is, as this is the first time I'm willing to participate in a contest How do we validate the time it toke? Do we record the process or do we have to checkin at some formulary when we start? Or It is only by samurai honor?, sorry for the begginer question, I have being long years in research for CG developing but yes, this is my first time on a speed modeling contest =) thank you for the answers. Any way I think Ill record the process for my self and eventually upload it =)

Greetings! Diego.

Yeah, anything you find in space. - someone has to be piloting those ufos.

How are you supposed to prove you really did what you did in 3 hours? Time-lapse video captures, such as this?

Well, no its just giving yourself a "deadline" helps usually significantly to "get it done".

I think it is rather interesting to see how other people approach 3d-modeling, so yeah would be cool to post some "time-lapse" video.

But it is enough to post a wire-frame, and a clay render /or final render.

yes, what are the requirements? fully textures, lit? or just mesh?

Still nice to see these competitions out.

Is Sculpt (ZBrush, Sculptris, Mudbox) allowed ?

Borgfriend

Everything is allowed as long as it creates a 3d-mesh.

Minimum to enter is a completed mesh (modeling, sculpting, etc.)
Lighting, texturing etc. Is optional (but looks better)

So here is mine:

Some crazy one eyed alien !

The base mesh is a sphere in Sculptris.
Sculpted during less than 2 hours.
Then I exported it in ZBrush to add few things and rendered it in ZB.
So, 3 hours...

Cool stuff guys, inspiring thread for sure. :)


I made a quick 3d sketch of some
sort of a "star destroyer" just placing
main elements -- 30 minutes

Started to scribble for an idea with the star destroyer, it is very loose still so not sure if I will finish. I like to put down ideas on digital canvas though.
The top one is a sketch above the 3d setup which is in the bottom.
