Blender Week Day Challenge #0071 (ENTRIES CLOSED)
Welcome to the Blender Week Day Challenge #0071!

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]m 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.

TWO WEEK CHALLENGE - Deadline: 18:00 GMT (12:00 Noon Central Time) 2010-07-23




How many entries do I have to submit to pass into the voting stage?

Final Compass

And here is my jellyfish. Complete. The background was not created by me but by Disney in the movie Finding Nemo. That is the one I will enter in the voting thread because the one with no backround looks dull and boring.

The image is really bad quality until you click on it.

Gah… miss read the items, thought it said “deskchair”, not deckchair. oh well. here is what I’ve already done on the desk version anyways. now for a real deckchair…

Edit 2: Here is my deckchair this time. Gonna be a while longer till I get the other model finished.

Edit 3: finished a unicorn of sorts. I spent most of my time playing the topology, so sadly hair, textures, and environment will have to wait for some other day…
And to those that questioned it, this is a deckchair, (google image it if you don’t believe me) it just happens to be on a beach at the moment.

Edit 4: Played with the hair, you can count this as the unicorn’s beauty render I guess. Not sure why the mane went wonky on me at the end, but meh, It’s not that bad, and I’m done with it for now.


@Pirate__man: You need one from the organic list and one from the inorganic list
@Atemporalskill: Perhaps another week :wink:

Ya desk chair would be nice XD Love what you have so far Atemporalskill even if it isn’t what you were supposed to have. Wonder where robo3dguy is?

Edit: That looks more like a beach chair…

OK got some Cutlass swords so far.

“Plastic Unicorn” Re-rendered in 2.53 beta. Looked better so I think I’ll go with this one.

lol :smiley:

Looks like another fun challenge. Lots of cool objects to model. I hope to have some competition this time :wink: Placeholder.


pirate man this is a contest. you’re not suppose to ask your opponents for help. they might give you bad advice on purpose. :slight_smile:

just kidding

First of all this is a friendly compition. Second of all I could plainly see if the texture they gave me was bad.

Good luck!! :slight_smile:

Can it be ANY type of cutlass sword? or does it have to be a specific kind?
I found like, the Naval cutlass, and pirate cutlass… ?

Naval or pirate cutlasses are fine.

A cutlass is a shortened sword for close corter fighting preferably for combat aboard a ship. The pirate version is heaver but shorter then a navel sword. Ultimately they are the same thing.

I’ll stick to the compass xD

Smart thinking!

Here is a simple whale. Took about 25-30 minutes. No eyes, but hey just a little time. Thanks

Here’s my compass and my jellyfish :smiley:

Hmm I’m going to see if i can fix the Jellyfish’s render quality, cuz it seems a bit funky.

Okay hopefully this one looks better :slight_smile: If you click it it looks better :smiley: I’ll use the second one as my official entry.

I rendered it as .png, but once i attached it it became .jpg I checked my files, and the first one was .png… hmm… "/

Junior759: Try saving your render as a .png. Using this file format reduces compression artifacts.

The second one is a .png, i think it looks slightly better. Thanks :smiley:

EDIT: lies… it isn’t lol. the compass is :stuck_out_tongue: i shall try now

EDIT: It actually WAS a .png but once i attached it it changed to .jpg so i couldn’t tell xD

Greetings :smiley:

Here’s my compass ------>

My whale! ------>
