2009 Feb-Mar Competition :: Desk Toys

Post by benn » Thu Feb 12, 2009 12:26 pm

Welcome to a new edition of the Indigo Competition!

It's been too long, so we're promoting an Indigo modelling competition for Feb-March 2009. There will be three winners, gold, silver and bronze, who will get a cool badge under their name on the forum, and an entry on the (to be created) competition winners page.

Good luck to all participants! :)

The Topic

The topic for this week is to model and render something small that is sitting on your desk. For bonus points, include a photo of the object on your desk, to show how photorealistic you managed to model and render it.

See the attached photo of my desk, for an example of what we're looking for.

General rules

- Entries should be submitted by the 30th of March

- Images must be rendered with Indigo.

- The choice of modeling and image processing software is open.

- You can not post work which is already in our gallery

- Only 1 submission per user.

- Any artwork not created by yourself should be mentioned so it can be taken into account during voting.


Submit your entry with the following infos:

Nickname: <your nickname>

Version of Indigo used: <Indigo version>

Rendering time / CPU's: <time rendered and on how many CPU's>

List of tools used (and external artwork, with links):
<blender, 3DS Max, photoshop, etc...>

ps: I copied this text from BorgLeader - I hope he doesn't mind. :)

If I had a camera I wouldn't use Indigo ;)

I'll be in the next one. Anyways, I have thousands of things sitting on my desktop !

is the contest for just the object or for the whole composition, like in your photo above, would it be just the little monster guy or the mouse/keyboard/etc.

I'm thinking just the little monster guy, but feel free to model a few things, the main thing is to make it look as much like your real desk as possible.

Hopefully you'll have a nicer camera than mine too. ;)

Glass-o-mouse

Post by SATtva_ » Sat Feb 28, 2009 6:43 am

Well, looks like I'll be the first one here.

For my work I decided to model the small glass mouse (sitting on a piece of glass cheese) traveling my flat from one shelf to another. Well, actually it traveled to my friend's house about a year ago and lives there now. ^^ So I won't be able to take a shot of it, and modeled it completely from my memory. For the context I've sit it at the other toy if mine -- the Benq laptop. Its not new and a little weary. But I hope you'll like the work nevertheless as I do.

(There are in fact two rendered images. ^^ I hope I won't be disqualified for that.)

Nickname: SATtva_
Version of Indigo used: 1.1.16, 64-bit Linux build
Rendering time / CPU's: 16 hours @ 4100 spp @ 2 cores
List of tools and artwork used: Blender 2.48.1, Gimp 2.6.5, Inkscape 0.46, two free textures (namely, wood and wallpaper) from here.

EDIT: No post-production, everything's rendered in Indigo.

Ok Guys, to push the competition here is my entry:

My new lovely USB stick is my travel mate and Toy since I like to play with the ring on my finger end let this little guy rotate around it like a fan :)
Since I don't travel much it sits mostly on my desk and waits for me to go out and explore the world ^^

Nickname: Zom-B (I lost the - some time ago during Forum problems... I miss it :cry: )

Version of Indigo used: 1.1.17 64bit

Rendering time / CPU's: on a 2x2.8Ghz iMac onVista 64bit 7h46 ~5000spp

List of tools used: C4D all the way, no PP.... pure Indigo!

The displaced Head on the stick is maybe a little bigger than on the photo, but I have not much time left since I go to India for a month in a few days ;-)
Also the references on the Internet where a little different :/

I also tried to realize some more interesting wood than my desk exists of, so the rendering inst as boring as the photo ;-)

I simply used the bump map for diffuse-bump, phong-exponent and as a blend-map for the final material mixed from both, its sooooo damn easy!
