IQP Official: Drinking Bottle Challenge

Recommended Posts

Although you can play a very similar game with actual drink, here the drinks are soft and the modelling less so.

IQP challenge 2 is to model this drinks bottle. That is to say the bottle, the lid, and the grid thing inside it.

 

Here's your reference, superbly held up by GI Vector himself !

The Rules

  • This is a 4 week challenge, closing Oct 30th 2017.
  • Main focus is again, all quads, superior edge flow, and polygon efficiency
  • This is the WiP thread, so please post your rendered images only here;
    finals thread will be up soon, which is where to put your wireframes for final submission.
  • We're not saying you have to, but we will be impressed by people who choose to model in the text.
  • The winner will receive 8 Elite challenge league points, with 2nd place receiving 5, and 3rd receiving 3.

 

Good luck, and may your polygons be exceptional.

 

Imperial Archon Cerbera, IQP

I meant no offense but wouldn't it be more exciting if the participant is given a creative freedom in these modelling challenge? 
For instance, just a project brief of Sports/Female/Bottle.

Although I understand, this is meant to be an exercise but it would be nice if what would be the output can also be use as a portfolio. Well you can put it into a portfolio but it is discouraging since if you do, other people will most likely have the identical work. 

Just my cent.

It's much more complicated than you think. Its hard to even run a challenge as most of our members are freelancers and beginners. So when they see pros entering they just give up, so these challenges are trial and errors...we will see in the future how this will evolve. We simply making baby steps and nothing more we can do about it.

    No, this is about improving skills, and seeing how other people approached the same model, so everyone doing the same thing is kind of the main point. Our job in this elite topo club is mostly to find you guys interesting and challenging things to model. That might be the way it is now, but we may do more open ones in the future - like @Igor said, we are trying stuff and seeing what works. Of course there is nothing to stop you using our challenge titles as inspiration to go find your own drinks bottle to model and go in your portfolio, but here, we want you doing this one ! ;)

    You simply start and try to think out of the box. Its trials and errors and eventually you will learn how SubD works...only practice makes you better. ;)

    Yes, we are making this quite a hard slope to climb, and they're only gonna get harder ! ;) But just think how pleased with yourself you will feel if you try, fail, try again, and succeed !!

    You just gotta get on that horse and try and ride it to the finish line !

    Ha, this looks very challenging. I'll try and give it a go, but I think two weeks for this challenge is really not enough. The previous one was a month (I think) and only about 5 people posted an end result.
    I think each of these objects seperately could be a two week challenge, seeing as people generally won't be able to spend that much time during a working week on these challenges and for most people there will be a lot of trial and error involved.
    At the same time I understand you don't want challenges to go on forever but my initial feeling is this challenge is a bit over the top, being (it seems) much harder than the previous one, as well as having a much shorter timeframe. But perhaps that's just me being intimidated by this object ;) Perhaps it will prove less hard than it looks.
    Btw I'm missing a picture to show how these pieces are supposed to fit together. I can guess a bit but it's not 100% clear.

    I agree with you there, but we were planning to do a Halloween one around the end of October, so thought we'd squeeze this one in first. If we all think it's too short, then sure, we can extend it...

    Yes, our first one was particularly easy. This one is definitely a jump up, but not ridiculously so. What seems impossible initially often isn't if you just stare at it for long enough :)

    I am not sure if I will have time or not , but anyway , it would be cool if a pic for the full object would be cool , as I didn't see something like this before .
