"Make This" - Challenge

Recommended Posts

Hello, coffee drinkers.

...

There are several learning theories, but most of them defend that the best and the more efficient way is to make, reflect and make it again using what we have learned.

...

Under that point of view, I thought in a challenge that we could have in this house.

...

C4dcafe could propose to the community to build something in some area - modelling, texture, animation, lights, etc - or in more than one. I mean, there was a common goal: all of us were asked to do the same thing. For example, reproducing a table in an image, its texture, lights or some simple animations.

...

All those themes should be simple enough but with some levels of complexity to make it challeging. We all send our works, illustrating them with a simple making of... That's why it should be simple, altough complex. KISS :-)

...

This way we could think in the better way - according to our experience or know-how -, and then reflect with the work of others. Growing up as professionals.

...

Well. I let you guys think about this... or not. :-)

...

I'm attaching this examples.

2 - to make that texture;

3 - to create that scene.

Cheers.

These are all perfectly valid ideas and we will certainly use them. Trouble is that we are quite busy at the moment with forum upgraded and youtube content but as soon as we resolve this challenges will be back on :)

    Oh that first one looks like a very enjoyable thing to model. If I gave that an hour's worth later would you be interested in seeing the result, or would you prefer that I left the topology a mystery so everyone could try their own way ?

    No, what made you think that ? :)  But if I post some winning topology, does that ruin it for everyone else who wants to try ? For example I could post no-lines versions which left the edge flow a mystery ? But if I posted the isolines version, wouldn't that just give a way the (or rather a) solution, thereby rather defeating the challenge aspect of this ?!

  • Eheh.

    ...

    Yes you could do that. We all be very happy.

    ...

    I'm already trying that hammer down...

    ...

    I'll post mine when I finish it.

    ...

    Hurry up. :-)

    100% quads of course, but I'm not fully happy with the edge flow yet. There is downstepping going on right next to borders, which I could improve by moving it further into the model.

    That is quite a hard thing to model for someone who hasn't done SDS modelling before. It's impressive that you've dived in and got working, but yes, we have got quite a lot of modelling mistakes there, and so far we are not really applying the basic rules of modelling ! For example, there should be no triangles anywhere, and no edge weighting ideally...

  • Thanks, Cerbera.

    ...

    I'm testing myself for a long run. Modelling is an art. I can model simple things, as the house I've done last year - here. But this organic shapes are the way to go. The most difficult part is to understand where to begin... then where to go... then rethink... redo... and finally: delete and start again...

    ...

    That is something very abstract and not an easy task...

    ...

    This hammer is an object that maybe I could do right if I make it again, maybe three or four times...

    ...

    But this is an art by it self...
