Hey Danne:
Nessy looks good. What did you time-out at? (How long did it take?)

Cool elephant, Yves

Dasch: ~400 bears. I make up for quality with quantity.

So far I think Yves Elephant is the most convincing. I love the button eye. Tyler's Flatypus is pretty humourous!

Well, if you want time to pass quickly, do one of these speed modeling sessions... I'll give him a real head (instead of a squished sphere) when I have some more time.

Hi Dasch
My times was 30 min modeling and 40 min rendering!
I could have been a little more convincing in my choice of
texture, but I always miss the contests because of trying out different looks so I decided to stop with this.
Itīs all skin modeling!
Iīll be back with a completion of this model soon.

Oo, cool work Danne, and Duncan, it looks great! Oo, Tyler Godby had almost taking my idea Yeah, Yves' elephant is cool. Ok, here's my entry, called "Tux for the keychain" (toke 2 hours and 3 min., too many test renders I guess ):


I added the keychain part because Tyler Godby had already done a pinguin but not sure if it's too far from the subject now... All, info on how long it took, how I modelled, referencce image, and so on can be read in the comments. It was really fun to see how long you can come in two hours, great challenge!

Love that bunny, Duncan. One question: Why did you use shadowcatcher and not just put a plane under him for shadows to fall on? Is it quicker rendering?

Dasch, it isn't quicker rendering, because you're doing it in passes. I just wanted that pure white with shadows look, and it's a nice way to control it. With a ground plane I'd be dealing with a horizon line and falloff, and ShadowCatcher eliminates all that. Everyone's animals look good!

The "flatypuss" is actually that flat in real life. I got it from McDonalds a long time ago, so blame them for it being so flat! Here is the picture again.



And oh yeah, that other penguin wasn't mine. It was my little brothers. HAHAHAHAH

2 hours sounds like a long time, doesn't it?
Imagine a 10 minute challenge =)

So, what do you guys think? Should we open a new forum for these, or is the general forum good enough? Definitely looks like there is some interest.

Ah, sorry Tyler. Mixed that up The flatypuss is really great Nice work on the bear, Derek (amazing there is so few ).

Well, a seperate forum might be good so it doesn't get all mixed up but not sure if there will be enough interest so that it require a new forum. Anyway, such speed challenges seams great, and I would probably try several ones (depend on how busy I am, of course). Is there going to be votings/places and how?

I wasn't under the impression that voting was needed for these. The journey is the reward =)

I've got no problem with using the gallery for unfinished images. As long as you replace them with finished images at some point.

I don't think we need a separatte forum. Each challenge just needs to be started as a new topic, and we can let it run it's course. As for voting, I agree with Michael the challenge and reward is in doing it.

new forum. no voting.

For one thing, it's fun to cruise through a challenge forum. Without one, these little competitions will get lost in the shuffle. With a dedicated forum you can visit the different threads, and contribute to an old one without having to root around looking for it. I think it would make the Cafe more interesting!
