Year-Long Blender Tourney - Week #06

Welcome to the Year-long Blender Tourney!

Here is all you have to do to compete

Think about what you might like to make that has to do with the given topic. If the topic were to be say “Tools”, make a Tool of anykind as well as you possibly can.

Post that said item as a picture (a thumbnail if you could) Wireframe is also required because some people like to see them for extra modeling details and future reference ideas. Feel free to add the picture via the blenderartists thumbnails (uploads), or a photobucket, etc URL. But please dont use a facebook URL… not all people use facebook.

Declare if it is your final entry or if you will be editing it further…
ADD a wireframe Link or upload.


Just to save you the trouble, go ahead and tell us all what programs, scripts, and etc that you used in the making of your project.

Have fun with everything, and remember that all voting is fair, as it is done by the other blender artists users.

–The Rules–

There will be 48 weekly challenges (none during December).

Every month, the previous 4 weekly winning images will be voted on and a monthly winner will be decided. This winner will have the next 4 weeks to create and enter his semi final entry into PurpleBat via a message. The monthly winner must enter his semi entry before the end of his 4 weeks, or the image he won the month with will be entered into the semi finals, which prolly wont be for the topic given.

When the monthly winner is given their topic, he/she must not tell any other competitors, but just work on it in private until the next months end. He will then send the entrie to PurpleBat through a message and PurpleBat will keep it safe until the last month of the challenge. PurpleBat will then Post the voting thread for the final tier of the Tourney.

Monthly winners may enter weekly challenges during this time as well, and during the rest of the year with the goal of winning more monthly challenges, thus allowing him to enter more than one image into the semi finals.

The winner of November (last monthly challenge) will have 4 weeks as well to complete his semi entry, but there will be no weekly challenges during this time that count towards the tourney. If people are dying to Blend, they can participate in a couple that i will host during december that have to do with the holidays or something of that sort.

After the November winner has entered the semi finals, a final voting thread is created. Voting will last for 2-3 weeks, extending into the new year. Sometime in early January 2012, voting will end and top dog of 2011 will be announced. During these 3 weeks the new years tourney will begin.

In the event of a tie, the entrie that was posted/edited first and finished will get the spot in the next tier of the tourney. UNLESS they were both finished within the same hour… if that occurs, both entries will move on!

Note again that the final entries are held by PurpleBat until December’s End.

“Hopefully the final voting thread can get on BlenderNation so that there are lots of voters.”

Any person who would win this would surely have his name known, which helps many people get jobs and other good things.

Please enjoy this competition and everybody Vote! and Compete!

The more people we have competing year-round the more attention these competitions will draw from all around the place.

I will check on everything going on once daily. At the end of each week on Saturday at 3pm EsT American, i will close entries and open the voting thread. Afterwards the next weeks competition will begin. If it was the end of the month i will also add the monthly poll.

And Remember, you do not have to know “everything” there is to know about blender… Join even if you have just begun using blender, just so u can get some practice!

This weeks
Topic is…
Trading/Playing Cards

Yes i know… what fun is it to make flat pieces of paper? Weeelll
Like last weeks (though rlly 2-3 weeks ago) i demanded a mouse. With this one i demand that the picture of the card be portrayed somewhere in the scene. Be it staatue, person, background, anything of the sort.

Examples of Cards: Poker/playing cards, sports cards, Magic, pokemon, yugioh, … now i cant think of what i was bout to type xD

NOTE: You must add your wireframe now. We would like to see all of the “hidden” details of your image. =P

These entries will close and the Voting will begin around 3pm Est, America on Saturday (this will be for every week as well)

Good Luck!!

With this one i demand that the picture of the card be portrayed somewhere in the scene. Be it staatue, person, background, anything of the sort.

Could you clarify what you mean by this? Just a little confused. :eek:

(good topic btw)


I think he means that say the thing inside the card be outside the card (thats a bit confusing) e.g. if the thing inside the card was a monster you might have a staatue of the monster etc. (I think thats what he means anyway)
I might be wrong.

excellent! ill get to work right away, i think i have a few reference images that will work quite well in this :smiley:

Well im going to be really busy this week so i did mine today. Its not perfect but it will do. Thanks for the challenge :slight_smile:

Good luck everyone

Zamzee nailed it. Exactly what i meant

Nice entry Templar Vaxus. You finished that very fast!

Thanks :slight_smile: . Ive got a road trip all week so i decided i’d get it done before i go. Hopefully it will give some people some inspiration. If i had enough time i was going to do a king on a throne with a collection of spades behind him :stuck_out_tongue:

This is far from being finished, but wanted to post what I had so far… I just need to figure out HOW I’m going to incorporate the card, and possibly figure out the fluid sim, so that it stays within the glass. Also, this is a tarot card.



Wow. Great Entry TazDevyl I really like the way you have done that. I can’t wait to see the finished product!

hahaha :smiley: you guys are going to LOV3 my post lmao :smiley:
thats the title of it
so here it is!!! this is my final image!!!
Oh and it is SUPPOSED to look like the hearts are paper…thats the point, they are coming off the image :stuck_out_tongue:
i thought it was kinda cool :smiley:

Also, i count 14 hearts, which i though was kinda cool :smiley:
and if you look in the Silver ring, it spells LOVE the correct way :stuck_out_tongue:
see if you can find all 14 hearts!!!
(hint: the last heart is part of a reflection, and not the obvious one on the left :P)

I doubt I’ll win but hey, a message in the cards was a pretty good idea :stuck_out_tongue: nobody steal this!!!
Sorry paranoid :stuck_out_tongue:


Nice work Evil Moon Moose I really like the reflections.
Great now I like everyones entries now I have no idea who to vote for.:spin:

lolol :smiley: thanks :DD did you happen to find all the hearts? cuz if you did theres a secret 15 th one thats super hard to see…so i didnt say there was 15 but hey give it a shot!!! ;D
i figure its february! the month of love!!! am i right or am i right?

I can see 13, I think I wont spoil it for every one by asking you if I got these ones right or not.

lolol I love puzzles :D, Ispy books used to be my favorite when i was a kid…you know what :stuck_out_tongue: im gonna make one

Ok here is my entry! It’s soposed to be a stick figure who has escaped from his card and now he is going to burn it. That’s water on the bottom of the picture by the way. :stuck_out_tongue:

And here is the wire frame!

Good Luck Everyone! :smiley:
