Comments and description:
I atempted to do the 3 ladies of cowboy bebop Faye, Ed and Ein from anime master Shinichirō Watanabe. Main goal was to capture the anime style, the show and a personal challenge to create my own concept to work of.

[b]Comments and description[/b]:
This was my first serious project using Blender (v2.49), and my first modelling work after an almost year long hiatus. As it’s always the case in these great challenges, I learned a lot, and had a great time seeing the amazing skills of the other challengers, specially the organic modellers and sculptors.
When I decided to enter this challenge, being a fan of all things airplane/airship/spaceship, my options were narrowed to Macross Plus, Cowboy Bebop and Porco Rosso.
I already did some Macross fanwork (as can be seen in my avatar), so that was out. Cowboy Bebop was also out after I couldnt find any good/consistent reference for Spike’s Swordfish.
So Porco Rosso it was; at first doing a diorama was only an option, but as work on the plane progressed, I started to ponder my options for the diorama.
That was a really hard choice to make, there’s so many great scenes and enviroments in the movie…
In the end, my inexperience in Blender made my decide to create a diorama depicting Porco’s plane inside the Piccolo workshop the night before he and Fio escape from the secret police.
I plan to finish this piece, adding textures and proper lighting, with so many different materials and objects, I think it would be a good learning tool.
Well, that's it, I wont bore you anylonger, big thanks to all who encouraged me and suggested ways to improve the scene. [[img]http://img716.imageshack.us/img716/3496/final2bwm.jpg[/img]](http://img716.imageshack.us/img716/3496/final2bwm.jpg)

Glad to hear everything is OK Roberto. Hope the accident was minor, and injury free.
Well, I guess I'll kick this thing off. Please note, I put buttons to see the hi res of the beauty renders, but all images can be seen at a higher resolution by right clicking and opening in new window. I know this is common knowledge to most but just wanted to note it. Thanks! TIM MROZEK: Kamaji and his Boiler Room TIM MROZEK: Kamaji and his Boiler Room Beauty Renders: Portrait- [img]http://i.imgur.com/MCw8o.jpg[/img] Full Scene- [img]http://i.imgur.com/iJgEI.jpg[/img] You can see the full set with a few extras [here](http://timrozek.imgur.com/) Well, this was a great challenge. I had been wanting to model Kamaji for years now and this challenge gave me the perfect opportunity to get me to actually do it. I had initially hoped to do the entire room and boiler and everything but quickly realized that, with work being busy, and the time frame being what it was, I wasn't gonna make it. So I decided to focus most of my energy into the character. I still managed to get to work on detailing what parts of the room I did manage to finish so overall I am pretty happy with the result. Great challenge, there have been some really awesome models done here, all motivated by some incredible anime masters Thanks for hosting as always Roberto.
