Blender Week Day Challenge #15 (Entries Closed) ROLLOVER

Welcome to the Blender Week Day Challenge #15!

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.

New Deadline: 18:00 GMT (12:00 Noon Central Time) Friday 16th November 2007


Kiwi Bird


Centurion’s Helmet
Mobile Phone

NOTE: If you have any ideas for modeling topics please pm me with them, thanks!

I’ll try this again. We’ll see how much time I have this week.

Here is my first image entry: mobile phone (and charger ;)). Not based off any brand in particular. All Blender.


I’ve been sick this week, so I wasn’t able to spend alot of time this week, and therefore didn’t finish 3 entries…

But… I finished 1, and the second is rendering tonight…, but I am really proud of them so I am gonna share them… :smiley:

Workflow - Modeled in moi - Imported to blender, for mesh clean-up, tweaking, materials, lights. The rendered in luxrender, and Finally tonemapped(is that a word?) in Violet…


Mobile Phone:
This one needs a little explanation… :evilgrin:
I decided to model the “BuddyBear” phone, aimed at small children, but mine is a “BuddyBearNano” (Apple ;)),
Instead of being able to call 4 pre-programmed numbers like the full phone, this one can call, one whole number… :smiley:

Article about the buddybear >>Here<<


Workflow: All Blender..

Its simpler than the others.., but I lost my first version (and much better) of the snail... and the deadline is rapidly approaching... so.... :D


Here is a webcam, all blender

love the webcam marslyr, i need to get luxrender working on my machine.
I think I’m going to have to extend this challenge for another week so you all should have plenty of time to finish your models

Hi, i’m new to the forum!
i try to post something for this contest… all done in Blender


@Lucky141: I really like your style. Great fur by the way!

My first attempt at this contest. All done just with Blender.

Hey everyone!


love the webcam marslyr

Why thanks!, I am quite fond of it myself, hence my posting it :smiley:

i need to get luxrender working on my machine.

If that is something that really interests you, you should hop onto the lux irc channel sometimes, there are nice people in there…
Or the lux forums…

IRC: #luxrender on

I think I’m going to have to extend this challenge for another week so you all should have plenty of time to finish your models

Do you think you will still be doing that now that you have 2 whole entries?

Welcome to the bwdc, and for that matter, welcome to BlenderArtists…
Let me say, you have a great, cartoon(ish) feel on those animals :smiley:

Welcome to to the challenge as well, the hair on the bird is great!


The challenge is extended to the following friday if we don’t get 3 or more whole entries, so I need another complete entry in the next hour or so to stop this week’s challenge from being rolled over.

Sorry, I didn’t have a chance to work on anything Blender-related this week after Tuesday. I’ll check back to see if the contest is extended. If so, then I’ll see if I can manage to finish something.

Deadline Extended to 16th November

Thanks now I can finally get 3 entries in this time…:smiley:

Yay! Thanks for the extension. Hopefully I’ll be able to finish this week before the deadline…


grafixsuz: do you want the front or side shot of the snail for the voting thread?

Just so I understand completely, what is textured? Can I add materials? Can I use textures made in Blender? What’s allowed and what isn’t?

I’m asking the above question because I didn’t notice the no-texture rule and I went ahead and modeled some stuff. I didn’t use anything other than Blender at all for any of them, and I used some textures and materials all made in Blender. Let me know if I should change anything.

The snail shell and the body of the bird are borderline. Everything else is fine.

Regarding your other questions:
You can use coloured materials but not textured materials, some people here don’t use materials at all and render their objects in greyscale but most will use coloured materials to contrast different parts of their models.

so I should change the shell and bird body?

no, they’re ok for the voting thread
