Default Speed Modeling

i want to see if anyone would be interested in a weekly speed modeling session. (i.e. every friday 2-3 hrs long) (not competiotion or battle, just speed modeling session)
topics will be anything, robots, anime character, cartoony characters, human heads, architechture, and other various thems.
i know too many ppl do not post here so this forum would be ideal for weeekly speed modeling session. anything u can come up with will be fine, plus it will be a great tool to aid modeling and learning more about maya's tools.
VOTE!!!:p

there's only 1 battle in the battle forum...
this would be different, people would compete but in a less competitive way and more in a imaginative manner. the goal is to see what people can come up with in 2-3 hrs. Many would gain new skills from this, especially n00bies and other intermidiate users alike...
but only 8 votes so far.... ppl do not browse th maya chat forum often... i should have posted in the members lounge

Is the suggestion to give everybody 2 to 3 hours during (for example) every friday to see what they come up with from a set theme?
Cool idea, I'd be interested (as long as it didnt impact my challenge competition time)

"threads fom the crypt"...

this is a very old thread. i dont think too many would participate. it would be just a waiste.

or instead of starting a new section, i think we can simply put it in the battle forums and named the thread thusly

"Speed modeling- week- 01/21/06 - Antique Phones"

2-3 hrs

everyone would post their work kin the same thread.

just an idea.

we can give it a go starting next week.

even if it where just some of us, I think it would be fun enough. after some weeks maybe others will have taken notice about and number of participants might increase.

I go with your suggestion on the details vlad.

Matt, the phone thing was just as an example.

so we'll give it a go on friday.

this will last from friday-sunday. a winner will be announced sunday evening.

i think on the weekend people has more time on their hands to doodle and practice, so this should fit most schedule for those who are willing to participate.

cheers.
