Blender Week Day Challenge #0025 (ENTRIES CLOSED)

Welcome to the Blender Week Day Challenge #0025!

The list is made up of three organic and three inorganic topics and participants choose one of each category to model. Participants need to pick two items off the list to model (one from each category).

For examples of previous entries please see the gallery

All the models should be original. You can use any software you want as long as you use Blender somewhere in your modeling workflow. Also please state any non-blender software you have used for your model.

If you’re feeling generous why not add the models you create for this challenge to the Official Blender Model Repository and if you want to make your blend files available under the Creative Commons Attribution-Non-Commercial 3.0 Unported Licence just email them to me at [email protected] and I’ll host them on the website.

Any wireframes posted will be added to the voting thread (If you don’t know how to make a wireframe check out the tutorial)

Check out the website for the full list of rules, challenge archives and all the latest news.

Note: If you post up more than one render of your model (excluding wireframes) please state which one we should use for the voting thread.

Deadline: 18:00 GMT (12:00 Noon Central Time) Friday 15th February 2008


Baseball Ball
Vacuum Cleaner
Gasoline Can

Going to be putting in extra hours this week at work, but I will try to get some blendering done. Thanks blackcougar for all your efforts.

Oooh… I wish I was brave enough to attempt a lobster XD

Just wondering, where do the items in the categories get picked from? Is there a giant list, or just random thoughts?

Bit of both actually, I have a document on my pc which I store ideas for items and then I pick them from this list each monday.

If you have any topic ideas please let me know, it makes it easier when I have a big list to choose from! :stuck_out_tongue:

Also I can then vary the difficulty so everybody can do something at their level…

SpynalTom: np :wink:

Coolies, thanks for the fast answer! :slight_smile:

i think is very interesting contest …wow daffodil ,beautiful!!


Pinecone pure blender, Vacuum blender + yafray (still pure?)
Eek… annoying school… I made both of these this night after homework so they aren’t the best. :slight_smile:

Without further ado…I couldn’t really think of much for a background for the daffodil. Willing to take suggestions before or after the contest close.


No longer a placeholder… I haven’t the time to finish my projects now… got a bit to do all of a sudden =(

Good luck all!

What do you mean with daffodil?
The car or the flower?
Placeholder :slight_smile:

I was meaning the flower, it being in the organic category :wink:

Oh yeah, sorry…
I’m thinking what i could do of organic things…

Okay, not a placeholder.
I’m very busy right now so i can’t join the contest.
May blender be with you!

hold this place!

Well, here it is, my first contest rendering ever. The pinecone could be better but for that I need more Blender practise.:o


Gasoline Can:


Hey guys, this is my first entry. I really wanted to model a vacuum cleaner but ran out of time.

Edit: My friend thought the pinecone render was too dark, so I’m sneaking a brighter version in at the last minute :slight_smile:


Ball with simply texture, and daffodil (rendering is not end…but little time)

hey Gikkios, I won’t be able to sort the voting thread out for another hour so if you get it up before 22:00 GMT it’ll make it into the voting
