- The speed modelling challenges are open to everybody.
- In every challenge you will get a list of items. Pick one and try to model it as fast as possible. If you want, you can do all of them.
- Do not exceed the time limit of the challenge. If you're out of time and still haven't finished, post the unfinished model.
- If you finish before the time limit, spend the remaining time on refining and adding details to your model.
- Focus on modelling. Shading, lightning and "proper" rendering are optional (and thus not limited by time).
- Take as much time for reference hunting as you need.
- When posting your model make sure you post a wireframe of your model. (try to do more then one view of the model).
- You can do any challenge you want. The challenges are not closed when the SMC passes. If you fancy an older challenge, do that.
- For the concept items you have to create your own designs. If possible post the design images as well.

Items (2h time limit)

- salamander,
- microphone,
- backpack,
- starfish,
- blimp,
- nuclear power plant,
- stethoscope,
- kiosk,
- speed boat,
- a pack of smokes.

Concept items (3h time limit) - design it yourself!

- tablet PC,
- flashlight,
- computer mouse,
- umbrella,
- armor - gloves.

Happy modelling!

lol, yea I sure went lazy there :cry:
But seriously though you have very good topics, good combination of hard and easy. Wanted to try the chimpanzee the last time but it was way above my skill level. :)

Drinking beers and try to model at the same time is a leathal combination but I just felt the need to model something lol, haha modeling under the influence. Ah well.
Tried my hands at the Stethoscope, messed up some parts.

Stethoscope, 1.30 hours.

I haven't modeled in quite a while now, so I figured I would give this a quick attempt tonight as a refresher. Still kind of new to this whole thing as it is. Model time < 1 hour.

I just started to learn how to 3d, so here is my microphone entry. Model time ~ 1h30m.

Hey guys, this is my attempt at making a Kiosk. Did it in 1.5h

05-28-2010, 04:56 AM
you still have half an hour, don't cheat yourself add some interior and a bracket holding the awning up. it looks good but you got some time to finish it.

not trying to sound a lil mean or anything but the more you can do the better it'll look

Here's my tablet PC design, as you can see, the PC is a tablet:lightbulb

First post here. My second ever creation using 3D graphics. Please let me know if I've done anything wrong :D Took me exactly 1 hour.

I had a go at the kiosk off of a reference. It's an information kiosk.

I spent about an hour and a half on it. Kind of disappointed in it though. I'm going to have a go at something else tomorrow.
