Silo Mini Challenge-1 Join Us!

Silo Mini Challenge-1:

Theme: Cartoon Item (Character/vehicle/furniture/animal/etc.)

Start Date: Now Closing Date: 7/15/05

Rules:

1) Have fun

2) Learn something

3) Respect others

4) Only Silo may be use for modeling

This challenge is open to everyone, so give it a try. Please post your works in progress here, so others can view and learn. I know time is precious to everyone, but since this is for fun and the theme is broad, choose something that your time permits and post your wips. There is no penalty for not finishing; the object is to follow rules 1 & 2. On 7/8/05 or prior post your finished model. Then I guess we will choose another topic.

Looking forward to suggestions and comments to help make this and future challenges better.

Started this last night and decided I would use it for the challenge. I have been trying to complete a character (real or cartoon) for a while now but usually give up and start over before finishing. As you can see, its missing a head and hands which happen to be my problem area's, we're see how it goes. At least now I'll have to finish it.

It was suggested in the other thread that we run the challenge for 2 weeks, and being pressed for time myself I tend to agree with that, and would further suggest that maybe we have 2 challenges a month and run them from the first of the month through the 15th of the month and the second from the 16th of the month through the end of the month. If it is okay with the other participants we can change the current end of this challenge to July 15.

Please let me knowhoe you feel as soon as possible.

Sounds good to me. I'd already been working on mine for a while before the challenge. A week is really short!

I have read read a few posts requesting the challenge run for two weeks, so I have changed the end date to 7/15/05. So there is still plently of time to join in.

Also please consider the following:

1) Having 2 mini-challenges a month, the first running from the first of the month through the 15 and the second running from the 16th of the month to the last day of the month. For example this month the challenges will run from 7/1/05 to 7/15/05 and then from 7/16/05 to 7/31/05.

2) Selecting the themes in advance. We could all submit, say 3 challenge topics that we will like to do. I will do a quick survey and and assign them to dates in the future. This way you can get a jump on a topic you really like or if your pressed for time you can start a little earlier. Since there are no prizes and the challenge is for fun, I see no harm in people starting early.

For example:
Challenge 1- 7/1/05 to 7/15/05 -- Cartoon Items
Challenge 2- 7/16/05 to 7/31/05 -- Vehicles
Challenge 3- 8/1/05 to 8/15/05 --- Creatures
etc, etc.

Let me know what you think.

We still have to work out voting, any suggestions?

Thanks,

Bob

yes..

I think its a good idea. We should all have challanges that suits everyone. For instance if someone is only interested in vehicles, they can wait fot that challange to start before they participate. Me myself, i like them all, i think they all teach you something in each project. But i can see how some people just do not like organic, or hard surface modeling. For me its a good challange, but giving them this choice is great because tehy can wait. So we could devided up into lets say chategories like: 1. Cartoon, 2.Creature 3. Human 4. Robot/vehicle Each month they would be divided the same. For ex.. Lest say next month is Cartoon and Creature, the following month is Human, and Robot/vehicle. This way you do not need to vote. Just wait for your choice and than just jump right on it.

Modeling challenges sounds fun but i think 2 weeks is alot of time, i'll finish 20 models in that time. Won't there be any speedmodeling challenges ?! like you gotta model something in a day or a few hours and then post it, a specific set time and a subject that needs to be done within that time. I think that's much more of a challenge than spending 2 whole weeks on something, that means i get to sleep for 1 week and 6 days hehe :P

And variations in subjects is great as suggested, that brings everybody in and everyone has a chance too. Not just a select few pro's. Btw, a kind of timer plugin for Silo would be great to have now, and something that records the modeling as what they got in Zbrush 2 with the script that's recorded as you model. That'd be a nice feature when doing modeling competitions like these here now so we all can download a small script, run it in Silo and see how someone modeled something and a timer that ticks away at the same time showing the amount of time spent modeling it.

While two weeks may seem like a lot of time you have to think that most of us can't spend our full attention on this project, it's something to work on every so often. At least this is the case for me. You -could- do 20 models in two weaks but why not work on one model in two weeks and make it really good instead of 20 so-so models? Not dissing your modeling skills in anyway just saying... Speed modeling is another good idea too, I think that could be anotehr good side challenge. Maybe when Nevercenter gets their new forum setup there could be a speed modeling challenge thread for that.
