Summer Challenge Ideas
I've came up with some ideas and I need you guys to help me out.
The challenge is to model and texture an abandoned object.
What do you think is best from the following (please explain if you can):

BTW, I don't know how to post a poll so excuse me if it won't come out just right ...

i say the bike and fridge look the most interesting

although the bike in the picture doesn't look abandoned so you'd have to get creative in making it look abandoned

the radio looks alright to do but it looks like there is no challenge to it. all you'd have to do is fiddle around with a few polygon primitives

the fridge looks like it would need more work than the radio since it has all those dents

whats the purpose of this summer challenge?

I thought the same thing about the radio... I just put it there to take the place of another idea that didn't work out...

I think 'dents' is inappropriate - more like torn apart :attn: .

Of course it's not as abandoned as the other stuff but it's in a pretty bad shape.

Let's hear some opinions... Please... I've got to decide what to do before the deadline

I think an old, dirty, messed up bike would be pretty cool, myself.

make sure you break a few things so it looks more broken and unwanted
