This week’s theme is: the unexpected

How to vote: look at all of the entries, pick the one you think should win (based on whatever criteria you like - eg. theme interpretation/image quality/noob encouragement/etc…) and vote for it in the poll at the top of this page. If there are only the results at the top of this page, either you’ve already voted, or voting has finished. Also, if you’re undecided between choosing a Pure entry and an Open one, you’re encouraged to pick the Pure entry - other than that, just ignore the Open/Pure classifications.
Easy, huh? :slight_smile:

Grizzly69Billy thinks: “My birthday was yesterday, and I got lots of cool stuff. So to find this gift in my room this evening is quite… Unexpected.”
Pure Everything done in Blender. The box and tag textures were made in Gimp. The tabletop is a wood texture found on the internet.

ScottishPigI’m as done as I’ll ever be. I modelled the whole ship in 4 hours, very pure. Unfortunatly the hills didn’t turn out right- but I hope for it to kick some butt! Besides, who would expect to see THIS in their morning commute?

bogbeanA squadron of flying pigs launch an unprovoked attack on a deserted picnic area using air-to-ground missiles.
(You can’t get much more unexpected than that, surely?!)
Pure Modelled everything but the pigs (which I got from the web). Struggled a bit with the particles for smoke trails and explosions as I’d not really played with them much before.

Open Entries
SGT Squeaks[list:f925d4c1a5]Here is the story.
When I was a kid my family moved into their first house. And like any kid the first thing I did was go out to the back yard and start digging in the sand box. I would always find toy army men and army vehicles that were buried by the previous owners. But wouldn’t it be totally unexpected if instead of finding toys I found the real thing?
And here is the entry. Everything was made in blender but the tank. OPEN

uh, I know this is kinda late, but I started it about 20 minutes before the deadline, it is quite open, since I didn’t use blender at all (only photoshop) I just thought everyone would get a laugh from it (no explanation neccessary I hope :-D):
