Blender Week Day Challenge #12 (Entries Closed)

http://www.joshuascotton.com/main/wp-content/uploads/2007/10/bwdclogomerged.jpg

Welcome to the Blender Week Day Challenge #12!

Challengers need to pick three items off the list in all, two from one category and one from the other. An example would be to pick two from the organic list and one from the Inorganic list, or vice versa. Texturing is allowed, but include an untextured image of your model. The untextured image will be the one used in the voting thread.

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.

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 19th October 2007

Organic:

Squirrel
Ant
Thistle

Inorganic:

Keyboard
Rugby Ball
Skateboard

NOTE: If you have any ideas on items for future challenge lists, please PM me or just post your idea in one of the challenge threads.

i m not sure but do you mean a musical keybord or a keyboard that is connected to your computer and on which you are typing texts in the computer :stuck_out_tongue: ? really not sure …

i was confused about that to but i really want to make a computer keyboard. i assumed it could be either since its nonspecific. i cant wait to get started when i get home i like this list.

anyway i m interested in what blackcougar will say :slight_smile: we ll see :wink: good luck

I did mean computer keyboard originally, but if you reaaaalllly want to do a musical keyboard you can :slight_smile:

Welcome Gikkios, nice models :slight_smile:

Hi,
as it was unclear if the keyboard would be a computer-keyboard or a music-keyboard, it gave me an idea to simply combine both. The closeup is there to prevent complains about texturing. I used Text-Objects what should be clear after looking at the closeup.

More will follow tomorrow…:cool:

Added the second row…

Here i had some fun after rigging the ant. Please still use the Picture with the white one for the Competition.
Since it took me only 10min. to do the rugbyball and about 20min. to do the skateboard, i did the squirrel aswell. I know i could do allot more finetuning on it, but to be honest i`m just too lazy right now. So it have to do as it is.
If its not against the rules i would like to go with the “combo-picture” where the rugbyball is next to a squirrel on a skateboard. Otherwise use the first one.

b.t.w. @Gikkios: your Thistle looks great!

Fantastic! Like the idea :smiley:

EDIT: Just saw the blender buttons on the keyboard :cool:

@ BackBONE Thats great :slight_smile: small question: where did you get the reference for the ant ? i did not find anything good :frowning:

…223

When it comes to voting BackBONEs got my vote for sure :slight_smile:

Glad you like it!

@Relledom: Google Image search. If i don`t find something usefull i try the same keyword in different languages. There are several dictionarys online. Sometimes it helps to misspell it on purpose.

@Easton: Thanks allot, but i hope several others gona join this competition. So let`s wait untill the entering is closed.

@Mars Grfx: Thats exactly why i love art so much. You can create things that don`t exist, and allmost without borders (exept your skill, and the limitations of the tools you are useing).

ill be posting my entries tonight or tomorrow morning. i just have to finish the head on my ant

I’d join in this week if I could but I had an exam Wednesday and spent Monday and Tuesday revising… I still might do the rugby ball … if only to show you guys what a real english rugby ball looks like! lol :smiley:

Gikkios: Love the thistle, you are good at blender :wink:

BackBone : Awesome! Combo pictures are fine, we’ve had them in previous challenges. The rules are max 1 untextured picture and 1 wireframe per item allowed in the voting thread.
There’s no limit on the number of items which you can enter, so if no one objects to it I’ll put the combo pic and the keyboard pic in the voting thread.

BionicGordon: looking forward to your entries…

Unfortunately I don’t have time this week to improve these or create a third model, but I figured I should submit what I have. Oh well, maybe next week.

Thank you for compliment Black! in effects… i’m curious also i, to knowing as it is made truly english rugby ball! Because in Italy we see only football ball, and i see a similar rugby ball in television when i see the american football, but i think it’s little different:eyebrowlift:

Hello everyone, this is the first contest on here that I’ve ever entered, and it’s been a lot of fun. Here are my entries:

keyboard
thistle
squirrel

Hope you like them!
