This is a horse head I created in Lightwave tonight as a part of the speed model challenge over at http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=122&t=984188. It took about one hour and 45 minutes to create the 3d model. I may go back and add some hair to it in saslite eventually.

This is a model of an ear that I attempted to create for the speed model challenge over at http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=122&t=984188. It was created in Lightwave 3D. I’m not too happy with the middle section that I was focused on towards the end yet, but it is a good start. The model was created in one hour and 57 minute using various reference photos found online. Setting up the cameras, lights, and rendering took approximately another 10 minutes after that.

Total Time creating this model with both the modelling, surfacing, and rendering took approximately 2 hours. The modelling took up the biggest portion of that time.

The above is a quick ‘speed model’ I did tonight for the speed model challenge over at cgtalk http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=122&t=984188

I plan to do more of these speed model challenges in the future to get my 3d modeling skills up to a level where I want them to be. The above model took me a little over an hour to do, and the texture (which I’m not 100% too happy with at the moment) took about 20 or so minutes. The model was created in Lightwave 9.

Long List of 3d and 2d editing software

This space will is reserved for a list of 3d and 2d editing software that I’ll drop in here in the near future, and/or build over time. I don’t have time to list it all right now, but am putting this here as a sort of reminder to myself to come back here later and add more. There’s tons of great 3d and 2d freeware and shareware out there as well as higher end stuff. I’ve played around with quite a bit of it and will post my comments on each one I have some experience with here.

Also add more like it.. other lists have been in various forums before.. but forums disappear over time. Blogs can too, but not as easily all the time.
