     ----------
     Due to the large number of images in this thread I've decided to make a few changes to the posts in order for my entries to be viewed more easily.
      
     All the secondary images (those other than the main beauty render) are thumbnails that link to the 800x600 versions. This should help loading times a bit.

Model 01
Subject: 65 - Screwdriver
Time Taken: 1hr 45 mins
Program Used: 3dsmax 8
Description: One of my dad’s old screwdrivers I found laying about, it was nice and uneven in places and had defects and some moulding edges on it which I knew would be good for adding detail to such a simple thing as a screwdriver.

Nice model mate,

Good luck with completing your list and this challenge!

ZaneV


#4

Thanks Zane…I hope I get there too

Model 02 is on the way to completion as well…its about 40% done I’d say.


#5

Nice, you’ve got the name on it and everything. Classy.


#6

yep i sure do…I’m going to be trying to go as hyperdetailled as I can muster within the time constraints…

my CD is coming along pretty well too…should be done sometime during today


#7

Wow, how’d you do the lettering? Nurbs, polys, boolean? I’ve considered that before, but Wow it becomes quite difficult to make it keep it’s shape. Goodjob. Only crit, that cylindrical extension beyond the handle makes the whole thing appear like a lightsaber hilt. But who says star wars nerds can’t design power tools?


#8

lol…lettering was done using probooleans in max8…

as for the lightsaberyness…well…thats how the screwdriver really is…lol…plus I’ll be doing a lightsaber for real as model number 5


#9

Um yeaaaa, good stuff. Lol, just replacing my mis-placed post. :smiley:


#10

[u]Model 02 [/u]
[b]Subject[/b]: 75 - CD
Time Taken: 6-7 hours
Program Used: 3dsmax 8
Description: Instead of just modelling a boring old CD I went for a dual cd jewel case with the 2 cd’s and a carboard slip cover…I’m quite happy with the detail I got in on this model.

#14

You are brave for taking on this giant of a project. Especially with such attention to detail. You deserve every bit of improvement in your skills that you are going to get.

[u]Model 03 [/u]
[b]Subject[/b]: 71 - Ruler
Time Taken: 1 hour 45 mins
Program Used: 3dsmax 8
Description: I went for the most detailable ruler I could find which was this plastic one which had alphabet stencils running up the centre of it. The booleans for the stencils took forever (both adjusting the letters and the operation itself).

[u]Model 05 [/u]
[b]Subject[/b]: 30 - Lightsaber
Time Taken: 3.5 hours
Program Used: 3dsmax 8
Description: I decided to do Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Lightsaber from A New Hope, some of the references I had didn’t show everything so I had to fudge some of it.

good looking models so far.
keep it up!

You’ve definitely got the hard body modeling down pretty well, so what about trying some of the organic models? I didn’t notice any in your list. After all, this is about improving, and you don’t seem to need a whole lot of improvment in hardbody models.
