Sundaynights, thanks for the comment in the previous thread, you can do the next 2 sessions if you want. Ah thought better to keep the ball rolling with a new thread.

Don't feel the pressure to model everything guys, if you pick one item a week I think it will be good practise enough I believe. :)

Out of curiosity, should submissions be strictly model based or is it preferable to texture them as well?

Correct me if I'm wrong...lol. My interpretation is that this is more for those whom participate's benefit in that we can get feedback here. :) The more you do and/or able to do before submitting the better for us that make it and practice in the effort. :P

Then again I just found this and will be making my first submission/attempt on this. I'm a noobie so take my words with a grain o' salt. Have a g'one :)

I have not set up that many ground rules as we used to have a lot of them in the older sessions and it feels kind of boring to set up too many rules aswell.

The time limit above is on the model itself. I would say that texturing and such is optional and excluded from the time limit. I myself have been doing finished compositions on my models, mostly because I use them for a 3d practise gallery on my site.
If you guys are newbies use more time if you want, better to practise than not. :)

To be honest I have looked at speed activites a little bit different than most, I come from an old tradition of speed painting in forums more than 10 years ago. For me a speed model session when I pick an object can be just to try out something, like the brick arch I made in the previous session....
Make the sessions the way you want it, if you do one item a week you will get more mileage.

Haha oh boy, this is so bad but here's what I have for a mouse model. I probably spent too much time thinking and not enough modeling.

Hey I am back. I agree with whom: make out of the speedmodelling what you want! It's all about pracitce! We are just trying to give inspiration and a little lead to everyone who wants it. And also I like to see what others come up with and how they are doing complexer models.

So as we have two new folks here I try to share what I have seen so far:

Most of us prefere to use some reference and try to make it as exact as possible, but there are also guys who do there own designs or model straight from the head. There are also models that are complex and you have to do a great deal of thinking and try&error till you get just a tiny part of the model right (e.g. spiral, basketball). There are people who try to block out the main shapes first and then refine everything step by step. And there is also the way of doing one thing detailed and than turn to the next part of the model.

Speedmodelling is not about the texture - but if you want to present it better it always helps. But for better critiques on your model its best to also post some wireframes and if you used any reference to also include the picture.

This aren't any rules just findings. You are free to model what you want. I also suggest if you want rather sculpt than model, than do that.

AND if someone of you have ideas for the next SMC or stuff you want to model here (and show) - just say so. We are trying to alternate between people hosting the SMC.

Hi nidaekin!

Nice that you joint us. From what I see the monitor and the usb-stick looks fine. The mouse and the keyboard seem to have some edgeflow-issues - not to sure about that but somehow seams more irregular.

Also the keyboard should have a visible edge going down before the keys start.

Check also the next SMC! ^^

thank you sundaynights,
I thought mouse with textured looks good but you're right. Some edges must be fixed :wise: Yes, I looked at next SMC liked :) Also trying to do their lowpoly models that's a bit hard to me :argh:
