Cheesey B movie scarey creatures - Like werewolfs, frankenstein, vampires, creature from the black lagoon.

Pick 2-3 animals and morph them into one creature.

If you did something a little more vague like Themes on Ancient Japanese Warriors, it might open it up so that people that aren't so into organics might be able to get in with swords or something.

how about we do a really quick type of session where the focus is on interestingly shaped beings. it doesnt have to be high poly. actually the focus would be to keep it low poly and be rather interpretative. ( unless you want to use Zspheres and then go wild with some brushing ) what thinks you?

this way we could experiment with a number of weirdly shaped beings, instead of making just one over 3 hours or so....

Hey ambient-whisper, i really like that last idea, could be very fun.

A nice mix of organic and mechanical models should be sweet as well as they have different aproaches to modeling.

Look foreward to this.

Prom dress. Remember trying to see what's behind them? Well now this will force you to actually look at one.

I think ancient architecture is a difficult yet rewarding test of skill.

I think this whole idea is pretty stupid unless there is some sort of structure to it.
A far better method than the current 'post a picture of a model and say "I did this in x minutes - honest!", woud be to have a hard limit of say, one hour, and for people to post an hour long video capture of the entire session. That way people can download and watch the modeling sessions and learn from others techniques, so this whole exercise is actually wothwhile.
There are plenty of free file hosts on the internet these days, so bandwidth is not a problem, plus wiht xvid compression and winrar, you can get a one hour 800x600 video capture down to 10mb at acceptable quality.

low poly monsters

when i first started to model what helped me to improve was taking just a sphere and trying to create a number of modelsform it. such as monsters, planes, etc. i think that is would be a good challenge becouse it only takes a few hours to do.

You could do some catchy ones too, like speed model everything on your desk or something like that.
