SMC#07 – The Factory

This competition focused on the idea of a factory. I went for a sort of automated iPad factory, not terribly happy with this one, especially the robot. Definitely a case of plan before you model.

SMC#14 – On The Farm

I haven't had much time for the speed modelling contests, but this week I found a few hours to enter the 'on the farm' competition. The coup is pretty straightforward, but I quite enjoyed trying to model a chicken in such a short space of time: only 90 minutes was allowed for this entry.

SMC #04 – View from a window.

It’s Play Time – SMC #03

In this modelling challenge, run by 3D Total, the task was to create a toy in 90 minutes. I entered this one twice. Entry 1 - Snoopy Entry 2 - Big Trak

Fill Her Up – SMC #2

In this speed modelling contest, run by 3Dtotal, the challenge was to model a garage or petrol station in 120 minutes.
