We decided to do the weekly speedcontests that we do on the german forum in the english
community as well. The winners will be rated by the whole community, that means not only
by the english speaking users here, but by the german speaking part of the 3d-worXX
community as well.
First of all: What is a Speedcontest?
It's a contest in which the applicants do a picture with their preferred 3D software
within a given amount of time.
Rules for this contest:
Duration: Thursday 26.08.05 (11:00 board time) – Wednesday 31.08.05 (18:00 board time)
Contest Theme: Fruits
Modelling + Texturing: 150 minutes
Lighting and rendering time is not limited.
(Sorry folks, this first contest has a shorter duration than the german one.
Next time they will start and end parallel and you'll have a whole week to
You have to post a flat shaded version with your final and the amount of time you needed
for modeling, texturing, lighting and postwork (rendering excluded). Only the modeling and
texturing time is essential for the voting. You have to mark your final in red letters as
"FINAL" and every applicant is allowed to submit only one final per week.
This thread is no WIP thread. Comments to the various results are appreciated however.
A definition from wikipedia:
In botany, a fruit is the ripened ovary, together with its seeds, of a flowering plant.
In cuisine, when discussing fruit as food, the term usually refers to just those plant
fruits that are sweet and fleshy, examples of which would include plum, apple and orange.
However, a great many common vegetables, as well as nuts and grains, are the fruit of the
plants they come from. Fruits that might not be considered such in a culinary context
include cucurbits (e.g. squash and pumpkin), maize, tomatoes, and green peppers. These are
fruits to a botanist, but are generally treated as vegetables in cooking. Some spices, such
as allspice and nutmeg, are fruits. Rarely, culinary "fruits" are not fruits in the botanical
sense, such as rhubarb in which only the astringent stalk, or petiole, is edible. Indeed,
under European Union trade rules a carrot is defined as a fruit, presumably because fruits
are taxed at a higher duty and carrot jam is a popular Portuguese dish.
So what we want to concentrate on are the sweet and fleshy fruits. So please do not model
zucchinis, cucumbers, paprika peppers or things like that.
