Default Seriously! modelling competition #3:"Freaky mosnter"

Modelling competition #3: "Freakiest monster you can think of"

For competitors:
RULES!!!

Ok! Here are the official rules of the creature modeling competition!
- You will model the freakiest/wierdiest mosnter you can think of
- Model's poly count (triangulated) has to be 5000 or less.
- 3D modeler program IS NOT important
- ONE model per competitor.
- You CAN post pic of your progress.
- Models will be judge on the FILE, not the pic.
- You can Texture, but you wonít be judge on texture.
- You can animate, but you wonít be judge on animation.
- You can post as many pic as you wish. Show off! Add special effects! Influence the judges! But remember, models will be
judge on the file only.
- Formats: 3ds, mdl, lwo, mb/ma. Have to be zip. (if you use other format, just tell me how to open it)
- No sign in. Just compete as you wish.
- No price yet. Just the winner satisfaction.
- Time to for competition will ends in 14 days from start.
- model has to be as wierd/freaky as you can think of.
- all pictures must be posted here (in this thread)

Some thoughts:

Some people may wish to use alpha texture on their model for transparency. This use may influence their modeling. Since the
model will be judge without texture, I do not recommend this. We are all fairly new to those types of competitions on this
forum, and as they may get better in popularity, we might later take those effects in consideration. For now, they are not
forbidden, but they are not judged either.

Last: Participate!!!
Who cares if your model sucks! You cannot be good in everything every time! Take chances and submit a model. You may get bad review, but thatís all. Some may praise your model while other may hate it. You will never know if you do not try.

________________________________

After you finish the model, send it to:

petar.petrovic@telemach.net
the subject must be like this:
Modelling competition #3: your name
File must be zipped.

When competition ends, I will sent the models to judges, who will make the note (from 0.1 (worst) to 10.0 (the best)).



the Competition will start at 5.October 2003, and will end at the 19. October 2003 (including that day).

For judges:
After Competition ends, I will send all files to to the judges. the judges will then sent me a final note. the judge should follow this rules:

- how could did the competitior used available polygons (did he use only 3000 polys, are some areas too detailed compared to others, etc., does some parts use too many polys and coul be done with less polys,.... )

- How freaky monster really is (how original it is, is it more freaky it is, better it is)

- overall look

When the judge make the decisssion, he/she must make the final note, from 0.1,which means verry bad model, up to 9.9, which means verry good model.
Also, the judge must write a short explanation, why did he/she decide for this note
After the judge make all notes, he/she will write all notes & comments of all competitors in a *.TXT file, and sent mail to:

petar.petrovic@telemach.net

________________________________________________

Judges are:
- Epshot
- 3D Gurl

the Competition will start at 5.October 2003, and will end at the 19. October 2003 (including that day).

Okay this is what I have so far, and yes its a nurbed model(smoothmeshed) right now, I am trying an experimental high poly to low poly technique using a certain 3D app that has never been done before. And because Seriously doesn't allow nude, I have censored. The final will prob have clothing. IF yu want to see the nude full w.i.p go check out my thread in www.Cgtalk.com.

looking really good there cooldog, I really love that alien straw-like look with the legs. I really like the feet aswell.

Edit: aw shucks, I have no chance at winning now but I won't give up. Pretty much, after the process of low polygonizing(hehe) of my high poly model the resulting triangle mesh is quite, whats the word... Messy and confusing. I would be judged down by mesh messiness ans especially since we got Epshot judging

Talking

thanks CGP.

about polycount - i've made only those legs and the polycount is 3000+ already.
so, when optimized the completed model wont look too good i'm afraid.
Epshot - does this guy work for Blizzard Entertaiment?
i think that i've read somewhere something like that.
anyway, StarCraft is the only game that i still enjoy to play.
so if i don't finish my model this means that somebody killed me or that i'm playing StarCraft.

one question...
um... does the model have to be a complete model (ie. everythign shown is all that the model has)?
or can i merely model a bust (head shoulders) of the overall model?

Edit: Da Playa - i'm aware why you asked this.
Deleted some pics except the one with the red-white checker board.

model is awesome. Lets make this competiton interesting.

Eh, looks like my entry won't make it. Its just not working out the way I want it too technical wise and time wise.
My high poly to low poly technic indeed works but its flawed as it would make a texture artist's job a living hell basically. Plus its just so organic that putting clothes or armor or something else on the body just would ruin the feel of it and knowing the seriously forums rules, Nude things are not allowed. Ontop of those facts, School has been keeping me pretty busy (tiring) actually. I find most of my free time resting right now and haven't hardly done anything more with my model.

Goodluck to everyone else's entrees, unless I find time or make something from scratch quick.

it's too close to exam time and many assignments for uni are due in the next week. As such i will be unable to complete my entry. i have therefore decided to withdraw from this competition.

(basically 2 weeks was enough time, but the timing of these 2 weeks was bad fitting) Good hunting to the rest of you.

also, i apologise to Zocky for being unable to submit a model in this competition.

Since I don't have time any more and I have to concentrace for school, I'm not planing any competition any more. Sorry.

Oh, and great models, CoolDog & CGP
