Blender Week Day Challenge #073 (ENTRIES CLOSED)
Welcome to the Blender Week Day Challenge #0073!

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) 2010-08-06

Rattle Snake


Rowing Boat

Space-Bolder :cool:

Placeholder. Okay nevermind, I don’t have time anymore. Just forget that this post ever happened.

I don’t think I will be able to finish in time this week, but I will put up what I have so far.
Gorilla - Blender + GIMP
WIP Sundial - Blender + reference image


I hope its ok to change my entry - this is my first contest, and I don’t expect to win - but here’s my new one (didn’t like the old one with the hand):

all blender, not even gimp for textures :stuck_out_tongue:

oh and just incase you dont see it - its both topics combined. Shuriken and a Lily - hence the shuriken cutting the lily


Placeholders are fine… aside from letting me know if somebody might post something last minute, it also bumps the thread! :stuck_out_tongue:

@gregzaal: Why would you think placeholders are cheating? It gives the creator of the thread an idea of the participation as well as gives the participants a single location to update their progress through the week. Some contests actually request placeholders. For me personally it also help to motivate me because, if I have created a placeholder, I feel more of an obligation to put the time in to finish. I am lazy, so I need all the help I can get. :slight_smile:

sweet, this is my first contest, so i noobishly assumed there would be hundreds of entries and place-holding was a way to guarantee people to look at your work first :stuck_out_tongue: sorry, i feel like noob.
@Spynal Tom - nice monkey btw!

Thank gregzaal. I probably spent too much time on it and won’t finish the second entry. I really like your Lilly-Shuriken :yes:. Well done.

Hi, i hope you like them.


all made whit Blender 2.5 beta , modeling and rendering
this is my first challenge too, i am a beginner

Ok, here’s my lily and shurikan, hope its ok so.


models only made with blender 2.49. lily background: gimp.
both blender internal render

so, there are 4 entries and the deadline has passed… cant wait to see who wins!

Looks like Ill be skipping out on this one (blame my math assignment and lack of time management) :no:

My favourite entry would have to be the one of the hand throwing the ninja star, but its not on here anymore?? Was it you blanshanimation who posted it?
It would have gotten my vote.

Entries Closed

Sorry about the delay, work’s been a bit manic. I’ll have the voting and next comp threads up tomorrow asap.

@AD-Edge uh… yea that hand throwing ninja star was mine… i removed it coz i wasnt really happy with it. i think it was too stretched and i was running out of time to work on it and make an organic entry. plus its hard to take credit for makehuman lol

oh and this was it btw… now you can see how unhappy i was with it.
