80’s Cartoons Tribute
Steven Ray aka “Boone”
Model character, enviroment, vehicle or machine based on a 80’s Cartoon.
Imagine you have been commissioned to build a model based on 80’s character.
The model can be an exact copy of a character for a 80’s series, or your own interpretation…
Now show it to us.

Sculpt, in a period of 1 month and two weeks, one or more 3D representations of a building, vehicle, machine and or environment based on extensive research… For this challenge, attention to detail an imagination are essential.
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 creation based on EXTENSIVE research.
At at the end of the challenge the final model will have to look like a scene that we might see in a cg movie or a commercial.
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:
[li]BEST ORIGINAL INTERPRETATION OF ESTABLISHED CHARACTER [/li][li][font=Verdana]BEST VEHICLE/ BUILDING/ MACHINE[/li][li][color=white]BEST DIORAMA[/li][li]BEST ACTION FIGURE[/li][li][color=darkorange][color=white]BEST WIP [/color][/color][/li][/ul][/color]and the big one of course:

designed by me.
