Hey, I will battle you if I am allowed to use 3D Studio MAX because I don't know how to use Maya yet.

Street fighter character :O :O.. sweet!... Great idea oatmeal.. but yea i do not see why anyone else should NOT take this on.. it seems like an awesome battle :D.. YOu could learn a lot with this.. especially if you took up someone like ryu or ken, with all that muscle.

Battle request

As Kevin's and Tariq's female body battle seems to be dead I am opening another one. The female head I made last year needs a body anyway so I thought why not do it in a battle. I've been a bit too inactive for last couple of months so I'm hoping this could bring my motivation back too...

To: Anyone
Topic: Female Body, no head, no clothes
Modeling Type: Whatever
Textures: Yes
Must show refs and wip screenshots
Time Limit: 6 weeks - I know that I'm going to struggle finishing this and I don't want to take too much pressure about this... Too much other things to do too :(

Battle request

To : intermediate
Topic : Dragon
Modeling : Whatever
Texturing : yes ( i cant promise that tho.. lol)
must show progress and wire frames.
Time Limit: i think 2-3 weeks is good.

the subject ,i want to model a nice big evil dragon, you dont have to make an evil one ,but ireally wanna model a nice big dragon :) with huge muscles and huge wings.. so if any one is up to it ,will be great!

howardporter 02-08-2003 02:21 AM

Not sure if this sould go here, so please delete it M if you think it shouldn't... :D

how about a battle or tournament like they have on ? we would all be given the same sound clip (short one :D) and have to animate it? like a line from a movie or tvshow

all the other tournements have been modeling, and this would force us to learn animation.

just a thought :)

NERDboy 07-08-2003 09:23 PM

Battle request

To : newbie
Topic : tornado
Modeling : -
Texturing : yes
must show progress
Time Limit: 4weeks

M 28-08-2003 03:17 PM

I love the idea howard, but for lots of people on this board i think that would be a very complex task. I know what you mean though, we should give it a try some time and see how it goes :thumbsup: thanks for the idea :D. Im not going to delete it because it just might happen one day.

EagleKing 28-08-2003 03:22 PM

Battle request ( yes its me eagleking and I want to model again)

To : newbie
Topic : some fantasy character
Modeling : polys
Texturing : at least some simple materials
must show progress
Time Limit: 3 weeks

Vectorman 28-08-2003 05:37 PM

for howard's idea, i think we would need to provide a model, that everyone would use so that people didn't end up deciding on the model, even of the comp was supposed to be about animation. Plus that way we could all jump right into learning blendshapes and things like that!

3dgurl 29-08-2003 02:49 AM

Eagle King i will take your challenge ^_^

any more specifics i should know?

EagleKing 29-08-2003 09:10 AM

nooooooo... I am a n00b. When I look at the model in your signature then I see you are pretty professional.

But...I am not sure. Who cares lets do it. First time to battle a female member. I feel honored. :)

no specifices...maybe you want to set up some specific rules?

3dgurl 29-08-2003 03:32 PM

Well, I do modeling and texturing for a startup game company and its my first industry-related job other than being a game tester so I still feel noobish ;P

I wanted to narrow things down a bit like maybe what type of fanatasy char or maybe any sort specific fantasy theme to base our stuff off of. i was thinking maybe we could do More cartoony looking fantasy chars and boil it down to the char being a biped or something to that degree.

EagleKing 29-08-2003 03:59 PM

I got a better idea. You set up the rules. I don't care about any rules.

So...start a new thread and lets start. :)

M 05-09-2003 05:44 AM

hey 3d gurl and eagleking.. i'd love to see this battle happen :). Just post down the full ammount of information, including the rules and i will start up the thread for you two. I may not see it for a day or 2.. so if you want to start right away then make sure you add a poll to the challenge. Add one more day onto how long you want for voting purposes and have a great battle!

3dgurl 10-09-2003 03:53 AM

oi i may have to hold off lol i just got tons of work rained upon my poor lil head =P

hopefully sometime soon we can have this challenge though =P.

EagleKing 10-09-2003 10:28 AM

ok awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww :P

orgeeizm 01-10-2003 01:57 PM

Hmm. No more challenges happening?

Alan 29-01-2004 12:24 PM

hmmm I haven't ever done a battle... might be time for me to dip my oar in. Any takers?

fredriksson 29-01-2004 02:28 PM

Come up with something good and I'll take you on, big boy.

Pony 30-01-2004 02:12 AM

I'm up for it Pure. that is after you and fredriksson, if your still up for it.

Alan 30-01-2004 09:53 AM

emmm ok y not all three of us? a menage a trois if you will ;)

Pony 30-01-2004 10:38 AM

we can all three get down with it. I'm game. Except I wander what the subject will be. I would suggest something but Iím looking for a fresh perspective. Iíll let you 2 come up with the idea. Also, are we just modeling or texturing?

Alan 30-01-2004 11:07 AM

see how far we get i guess, nothing character based as I suck at characters ;) I know it's boring but I would like to do something from starwars.... I really wanna do a sandcrawler :)

Pony 30-01-2004 11:46 AM

sandcrawler sounds good. Do you have some blueprints for one ? I was thinking it would be fun to use the same ref. Maybe its about time we get our own thread. If you think so, go ahead and start one.

3Demon 15-02-2004 05:38 AM

I'm up for a battle if anyone wants to. I don't mind the subject, organic or inorganic. Need something to up my skills and this would be a really good idea :D

Clod 16-03-2004 04:39 PM

Battle Requst

To : Anyone interested, like the sandcrawler challenge, open to more than one opponent.
Topic : David vs. Goliath type scene. One big dude, one small, don't have to be human or even humanoid. No limits on weapons/armour if desired.
Modeling : Whatever
Texturing : Optional, as big and as many as necessary.
Time Limit: 4 weeks? More?
Extra: Show progress and wire frames.

I'd like to create a powerful scene with lots of atmosphere and have the viewer thinking "Jesus!, what's gonna happen next???", because one guy looks like he doesn't have a chance (maybe he doesn't :p).
You can create an environment for the battle too if you like.

At the end, show 2 renders of the two characters/creatures/whatever squaring off ABOUT to do battle.

I really want to do this type of scene but more than likely
I'll pack it in if it's not part of some challenge.:rolleyes:

Clod 18-03-2004 09:58 AM

No challengers, looks like I'll be doing this on my own so:).
