HCR MINI-Challenge #36: Hollywood Dream Machines!

THE HARDCORE MODELING MINI-CHALLENGE!

Hollywood Dream Machines

Model one or a series of Land Vehicles used in Film, Video Game, Cartoon or TV Show.
The idea of this "mini-challenge" is to simulate an impossible deadline for a project. The artists will have at their discretion how detailed the models they will be working on, what program they will be using, the amount of models, and if the models will be shaded/ rigged. But the model will have to be original interpretation of a dynamic scene done from scratch.



A big part of the challenge is that the modeler will have to scavenge all the reference for the vehicles he or she wishes to model. But at the end of the challenge the final model will have to look like a scene that we might see in a Sports Illustrated magazine.

DEADLINE! MONDAY , January 7nd 12:00 PM


YOU HAVE TWO MONTHS do the challenge.

There are Three ways to participate:

Single Vehicle
You can Model whatever vehicle you want
  • Vehicle Series:
    This type of entry requires you will try to do as many vehicles from an individual franchise.
    For Example:
    Batman: Batpod/ Tumbler/ 1960’s Batmobile/1990’s Batmobiles.

  • Vehicle Diorama:
    You may the appropriate environment for your vehicles.
    Some examples:
    KITT inside his trailer Transport
    Batmobile inside the Batcave



THE CHALLENGE:___________________________
So lets recap....

Model one or more vehicles in a period of 2 months . The idea of this "mini-challenge" is to simulate an impossible dateline for a project. The artists will have at their discretion how detailed the models they will be working on, and the amount of models, and if the models will be shaded/ rigged. But the model will have to be work of the artists interpretation.
A big part of the challenge is that the modeler will have to scavenge all the reference for the film models. But at the end of the challenge the creature(s) have to look like the one shown on film.

CAN YOU DO IT?
What is the HARDCORE MODELING CHALLENGE?

The idea of these HARDCORE MINI CHALLENGES is to push the modeling skills participants while learning from the past. To get past preconceptions of the limits of digital art. To push digital artists into the world of sculptors & artisans. But we will have variety on these mini challenges. Sometimes we will sculpt a model based on a masterpiece, but on other times we might do Jet fighter or a landmark....
The only thing that will be consistent is the SHORT DATELINES.
At the end of the challenge, the participant should have a finished collection of entries. Keep in mind contest of high difficulty you will have TWO MONTHS to do the challenge, but the rewards, even if you don't win, will be your improved skills in speed and accuracy.

EVALUATION CRITERIA:______________________

Detailed RESEARCH, and attention to detail are key for ALL entries. Please before doing an entry do your homework.
The best model will be selected by an open vote
for these categories:


  • Best WIP thread
  • Best Model Collection (2 or more)
  • Best Diorama
and the big one of course:
  • Best Model
The winner will get bragging rights and a small banner
designed by me.

I don't think fighter jet is good.. the sci-fi cars are allowed because they are car but from a different era, but your jet is way too far of the subject too me

weird I was doing something similar to this over at blenderartists.org, http://blenderartists.org/forum/sho...vie-Car-Join-in , I would have taken part in this but I am still busy with my Flying Anglia from Harry Potter.

I don't know if this is in the list of cars as I just quickly glanced over it but if it is not the 1932 Ford from American Graffiti is a pretty cool car.

The list is only a suggestion.
If it is car, and it was in a movie, you can do it.
