I am starting this thread because the other threads have been dead for months and I don't want to fall into obscurity behind pages of old entries. So in an effort to kick start this forum back into activity, I will be running my own daily speed modeling challenge in this thread. Join in if you like, or just look around.

Rules: None.

There are no winners or losers in here, so why have rules? Simply model something in what you consider a short amount of time and post it. Below are some general guidelines, please follow them for the enjoyment of all.

Guidelines:

1. Post how much time you spent on the model. How can we appreciate your speed and skill if we donít know how long it took?

2. Remember that this is a speed challenge, so only post models that you consider ďspeedyĒ. I plan to shoot for about 2 hours each. If something takes 8 hours, but is very complicated and you feel you finished it quickly, then by all means it qualifies. But please donít post long complicated builds here, there are other forums dictated for that.

3. Post a wireframe if you can, because we all are interested in how you put everything together.

4. Please use this space wisely, and try not to clutter it up with trivial posts.

And thatís it! Please join in, the more the merrier.

I think I may have spent another hour just on the lighting setup. Because envoirments are inside out, I couldent use my saved lighting sceme. I also got pushed a day behind, I hope to catch up over the weekend.

Time: 1 Hour 5 Minutes

Tomarrow I think I will try useing mudbox on something, not sure what yet. Maybe a Roman Vase or something. Something simple and fun. Anyone up for some sculpting?

Edit:
In the middle of a hardware SNAFU, had to send my laptop out for repairs. I've lost a lot of momentum, but hopefully will resume as soon as I can.
