 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!

 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...

First of all, CONGRATULATIONS to all who completed their respective entries, it was really a nice and full of variety topic. Some great entries are there, like them very much !!

About my entry, it was a great experience for me . . no doubt
Learned a lot of new things, some new problems occured in zbrush, those I never faced before, will take care of them in future. First time used zbrush for posing, quite fun doing that, pretty powerful feature, if you know how to use it perfectly.
Also tried my hands on inorganic stuff(props) and those cloth wrinkles are a good study as well.

So, it was a pleasure to take this challenge, enjoyed it very much.

Best Wishes to all the participants.

The 2nd HMC I’ve managed to finish. That alone is a pretty big accomplishment for me. I’ve probably learned more about ZBrush during the making of this image then all the rest of the time I’ve used the program. I suppose the best thing is I’ve managed to wrap my head around is a proper workflow for ZBrush. That will make it much easier the next time around.

Fantastic work by everyone. These contests are producing better and better results each time.

Special thanks to DDS. I purchased some instructional DVD’s that were good but lacked some really critical spots. I studied your Batou vids pretty closely which filled in all the gaps. Thanks a heap for that.

Good luck and take it easy everyone. :smiley:

Comments:

It has been a good learning and some great fun participating in the modeling challenge after a long time. Some of the other entries have been truly inspiring and at times even intimidating

Had bigger plans. Due to some pathetic time management on my side as usual ended short of time:hmm:

There are many unfinished areas. The main idea was to try to capture the moment Ali announced himself to the world by knocking down Sonny Liston in the first round(Liston survived the count only to lose) of their title fight.

Thank you Roberto and everybody else participating and Good luck to everybody.

Hi, here is my participation for HMC…
It was a great experience, wich give me the opportunity to learn Zbrush.
First of all, sorry for the render, i don’t know how to render on zbrush and i haven’t the time to learn it. So i take some screen shot. :blush:
I haven’t the time to finish the model, I go in hollidays in 1 day, but at my back i’ll rework on this model, and hope post a nice image in the gallery.
Thx to all who help me, and congratulation to all the participants, some of yours got some fantastic skills!

Congrats to all that participated and finished their submissions for the challenge.
This has been a great learning experience for me, what with some really inspiring and outstanding works that have been displayed during this challenge.

My effort has been rather half-hearted. I hope to learn and improve my work…looking forward to gain more knowledge from the wonderful work that you people are doing here.

Thanks to you too, Roberto for arranging opportunities like these where one can only gain from such greats.

Maya kept on crashing every time I hit render hence the beauty shot is just a Zbrush cap. It was a fun challenge and allowed me to model a character I otherwise wouldn’t have.

I really had a good time with my first HMC, and my first time posting on cgtalk, as well as my first completed zbrush model. I look forward to taking all the knowledge i learned from this model and applying it to my next project. 

To my fellow contestants: it was a pleasure seeing your wips, and thanks for the comments. See you around.

My model is of Sir Edmund Hillary, the mountaineer and first man to climb Mt Everest with Tenzing Norgay. Not only was he a great mountaineer but a great and humble man who went on to build many schools and hospitals in Nepal. So he is a man to admire and besides a Kiwi :slight_smile:

There is no photograph of Hillary on the top of Everest, the famous picture you see is of Tenzing that Hillary took, but he didnt think there was time to teach Tenzing how to work the camera. So it was worthwhile for me to recreate Hillarys moment on top of the world.

Great images posted here by other modellers, congrats to everyone who finished :slight_smile:

Total time for the modelling and research was about 48hrs of which quite a lot of time was spent watching Meats Meyers z brush tutorial DVD. I achieved my purpose in entering the challenge which was to finish a piece in the required time, and to better understand zbrush, I now know how to use transpose and subtools, yay. I am reasonably happy with my progress on the piece, but will set myself a much higher standard of finish next time, and learn to do a proper render. Also I learn from other peoples fantastic work here it might be better and certainly quicker to forego the whole poly modelling route and start directly in zbrush for the organic parts of the model.

cheers everone, its been great fun!
