    Software:



    Zbrush, Maya, Photoshop, Headus



    I had a lot of fun doing Babe! I really wish I would've had the time to take him further but I had a blast none the less! The base mesh was modeled in Maya, sculpted and textured in Zbrush, and rendered back in Maya with Mental Ray.



    Great work everybody! Some really inspiring stuff this month!

    Software used:



    Zbrush 3.1





    It's been the best HMC one so far. Not much stress with a relatively small time inversion. I've got it all recorded but so far I've just put together the head. It's all posted underneath...



    To the competition: We've got nothing to lose here but I believe I learned a lot through this, and I hope you did too, because that the only thing that matters...

And here is the BIG ONE:

box shape figure in zbrush and from there on till the laces i kept to zbrush (and offcourse some photoshop for alphas),

WIP THREAD

DESCRIPTION
This is the third of 3 models I finished for this challenge. It's Pumpkinhead, created for the movie with the same name, directed by Stan. In his hand, a motorcycle chain. Watch the movie to know more about it.

Details:
100% poly painted in Zbrush. Base mesh modeled in Maya, imported in Zbrush for rapid prototyping, retopologized in Maya, back to ZBrush for detail reprojection and further fine detailing and posing using Transpose Master. No images were used for texturing, only regular alphas. The final mesh has about 12 million polys but it was rendered with one subD level less, at 3 million polys, imported directly to Maya. No displacements nor normal maps/bump used. Everything is pure geometry. Rendered in Mental Ray with 4 area lights. FastskinSSS shader used. Only color map and cavity map used (cavity plugged into the ambient slot). Render time: about 25 minutes each, on a Dual Quadcore + 8GB RAM, running Maya 2008 and Zbrush 3.1

I had a blast. Congrats to everybody who managed to finish and thank you all who stopped by my thread to say hello.

Cheers,
-Kris

Comments:
This is my main final entry image. It should capture the style of an advertising in a magazine for Mechwarriors or a poster or something like that. Keep in mind, that the Battletech is quite an old invention, and my ad should match in there.

Please click image for high res version. Please click here for ultra high version

Another beauty Image i want to show is a stylization done by a friend of mine in photoshop, based on the clay render, which will be linked further down.

Please click image for higher resolution version.
So credit for this colored image goes to Ricard "Fernest Hall" Anufriev. Great thanks, mate.

Description
My Entry is a cutaway of the Vulture (Mad Dog) Battlemech, known from the Battletech Universe and Mechwarrior Games.

As Reference i mainly used the "blueprint" from FASA, which illustrate a half cutaway vulture from orthographic front view. As additional reference for the 3D look of the model i used Artworks mainly from classicbattletech.com
http://www.classicbattletech.com/im...ver@800x600.jpg
http://www.classicbattletech.com/im...utaway@full.jpg
Thanks to Hypernaut and the battletech.info community for some references, especially to Vulture_MaxPaint, who helped me to some high res images of the blueprint.
More references can be found here:
http://www.classicbattletech.com/in...Mech_Technology
http://www.twobt.de/655.0.html
And of course, the original Blueprints from FASA:
http://www.amazon.com/Omni-Mech-Blu...28484284&sr=8-1

Programs i used for this entry are: Maya, Mental Ray and Photoshop.
I think i worked on an average 2 to 3 hours a day (sometimes more, sometimes less) on this entry, barring the last two weeks, where i had nearly no time for this.


Thanks for watching! Thanks for all your comments and thanks for that great challenge!

I really enjoyed making this model and attempted a faithful representation.
I wish I had found more references to build the inside of the church but for some reason there just are not very many on the web.

I also learned quite a bit. For instance, before this project I did not know how to mix textures on a single object with vertex paint. Doing so really helped add variety to the ground.

I have about four weeks worth of work into this.
It was all created in 3DS Max 2008 64 bit and rendered in Mental Ray. CS2 Photoshop for textures.
Final comp done with Windows Live Movie Maker.
In the final video I did no post processing other than the addition of text.

I sure hope I am not forgetting anything.

Good luck, to everyone participating and a big thanks to Roberto

In this challenge I wanted to get a good representation of the original photo. I've used alot of simple modelling with primitives and low level techniques to get finished within the timeframe. I did have time to work on some of the finer details like the lionheads and the trees. What I would have liked to work more on is the texture work, but as this is a modelling challenge my focus was mainly on getting objects done.

Most of the work has been done in 3ds max, and some parts altered in Zbrush. Textures are mostly just standard materials of max, but a few polypainted in Zbrush and modified in photoshop. Renders done with Mental Ray.

Thanks for setting up the challenge I had a good time with it and I hope everyone else did as well. Good luck to everyone
Regards

Description:

Hello, this is my first HMC and for it I decided to make an attacking great white. I've modelled the base mesh in 3ds MAX and after that I added the details in Zbrush. Texturing was done in Photoshop and comping in Fusion. The whole process took me around 4 days and I'm fairly happy with the result. I hope you guys like my entry and I wish the best of luck to the other participants.

Hiya,

I attempted the mimic octopus:

This fella was discovered in the 90's and nobody knew what he was since he did a convincing job of mimicking the environment as well as other sea creatures!(For example he/she would bury himself and leave only a tentacle showing to mimic an eel).

Cool vids of the mimic:

Comments:
This was very hard and also very rewarding on self-confidence. I learned to run a marathon and not a rush as I always have to do. The most important part was to learn when to stop detailing and skip to another model. I tried to keep the step of one model a day but I have to reschedule to dedicate more tome to some of the model. I didnt' spend time to do textured render since I preferred to focus on cleaning the model and do constistent geometry (and also to put as much quads as needed to ensure future comaptibility with displacements maps and bump maps if needed) this part was very important and time consuming when you have to do with boolean (like in the ipods, pads and so on): i hope this choice wont' penalize me
I also would like to thank all the community and expecially Roberto as always for this opportunity.
Cheers to all !
Giorgio

Description:
It was the 16th of September when I entered this challenge, with the basic idea in mind that I’ll go for 10 or maybe 20 models if I’m fast enough. I have no idea how it turned out to be 30, considering that I have made the last 6 items in 2 days only. So I guess that this challenge did make me a faster modeler, so thank you for that! I enjoyed it a lot! I used Maya for modeling, Mental Ray for rendering and Photoshop for everything else.

Description: Spawn is on of my favorite characters. A demoniac soul with some kind of "good" mission. I always wanted to do a Spawn and with this challange i had the opportunity and inspiration. i Tried to keep all of the Spawn's features, but giving a bit of my interpretation too. I did a simple Zsphere basemesh to the body and all subtools are made in Max. Using the Zbrush Decimate, i put all in to Max and rendered with mental ray. Composed with Photoshop.
Thank you Todd to your inspiring work!
