Speed Model 11/21/2011 – Time took from about 5:00 AM – 6:23 or so. Recorded video around 6:25 AM. I’ll go back and finish it later. Trying to do a speed challenge like this daily til I get better at 3d modelling, and have some stuff to put on Turbosquid besides my texture photos. If camstudio didn’t take so much ram/cpu usage, I’d actually try recording the modelling process as I work… Did a 10 minute completely blind contour drawing before this. Not sure if I’ll scan it and upload, but might later. Learned to do that reading the Drawing on the Right side of the brain. I think it’s a nice way to enter ‘r-mode’ before taking on something like this speed modeling stuff, etc.
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.
