    Modelling Contest #17 - Theme Poll

    Read all the six themes before making your vote. If you're not going to participate, or you can't model at all, do not vote, please. Only vote if you think that with that theme you could take part on it, or if you are strongly interested on the contest's output.


    [​IMG]
    1 - Squad Model
    The contestants should create a model composed of 2 or more independent elements. That means that they should act separatedly in some of their animations. A goblin sapper, or a mortar team is a good demostration.
    Possibilities/Examples

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]
    2 - Steampunk
    The contestants are meant to create a model in the Steampunk style.
    Possibilities/Examples
    [​IMG]



    [​IMG]
    3 - Warcraft Fitting Model
    The contestants will make an unit model that fits one of the Warcraft III races. Including the melee stardard ones, the campaign races and also the creep races. The unit should fit Warcraft style and proportions.
    A goblin slinger, or a nerubian warrior would be examples.
    Possibilities/Examples
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    If any unit in the WARCRAFT III belongs to the same race as your model, your model is eligible. (Arakkoa, Sporeling, Gnomes and such, no.)



    [​IMG]
    4 - Aircraft - Changed to Flying Unit #2
    The contestants should make a flying unit, as a gyrocopter, or an airplane, or a hawk.
    Possibilities/Examples
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]



    [​IMG]
    5 - Terror
    The contestants are supposed to model an unit that gives a scary feel to the player.
    Possibilities/Examples
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]



    [​IMG]
    6 - Fantasy Hero
    The contestants are meant to model a Fantasy Hero that would fit the Dungeons and Dragons atmosphere.
    Possibilities/Examples
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    my thoughts
    well, I know I've said this before, but I really, really think the squad one would be the most interresting one, where you need must creativity, both in model-originality and in animations, for example : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2aZrasBSuE&feature=related

    watch until 1:30 to see the things I mean...


    I know I voted for 4 things but for pointing out the thing I would vote if it would be only one choice.

    SQUAD- this is a stupid theme, no one is going to finish their model because its hard enough making one model, but now you're asking someone to mesh and animate 2 or 3 models in 1. So you'll either make an incredibly simple 3 unit model ( like 3 bats flying together) or you'll bite off more than you can chew and want an extension or 5.... which of course will give trax and mr.bob aneurysms.
    STEAMPUNK- meh, im always up for some good ol mechanical mayhem, but.... well, i guess its alright.
    WARCRAFT- ? im a little confused on this theme, i wouldnt really consider this a theme since it usually fits under most if not all of the other themes.... this is really more uf s sub-category.
    AIRCRAFT- I give this theme a hearty "fuck yea!" Aircraft would be a kickass theme and you guys know it.
    TERROR- Meh, i dont really see what you could do with this, we'll just have a bunch of skeletons and werewolfs and halloween decorations as submissions.
    FANTASY HERO-BLEAGH! I WILL NOT SUPPORT A THEME THAT ENCOURAGES MORE TAVERN-MAP SYSTEMS. goddamn, we already have a fucking billion of those goddamn map, and your just asking for a billion more to be made if you pick this theme :/

    A kickass theme? Aircraft needs basically no animations at all. What is kickass in that?
    I SUPPORT AIRCRAFT FOR A MINI-CONTEST!!!
    lol anarchy, please state valid arguments before saying this in big red font. We just had a contest in the same guidelines as aircraft, for PEOPLE WHO CAN'T ANIMATE. But Aircraft is even more ANIMATION-LESS friendly. Keep your animating handicaps to a good mini-contest. God dammit, aren't we ever gonna have a real contest going on?

    AND ALSO you saying that the contest output for the Fantasy Hero is not welcome is RIDICULOUS!
    YOU are the one who said that you didn't want useful outputs, but competitive themes.

    squad models aren't actually that difficult. I would count my puppetmaster as one and it took around 3 weeks to create it, with breaks of some days, because I did not wanted to work on it :>
    People were able to spend around 2000-3500 faces for a simple tank model so I guess it wouldn't be a problem for them to create a squad model of 2-4 models with 800-1200 faces each which would end to a face count of 1600-4800.
    Aircraft is simpy the counterpart of the tank contest and this does not fit right now as it is way too similar.

    Yeah, Squad isn't all that difficult. Squad models would bring up innovative models with cool concepts, it would be just awesome.
    (Also, you should consider that the squad parts have less detail)
    The thing is that when people want things, they dramatize everything in order to manipulate facts and force others to be the closest possible to agreeing with them. :con:

    And, yeah, sadly, if Aircraft is chosen, we will have the awful Tank Contest sequel coming up. There's nothing that can be done against that, I guess. :sad:

    Hey guys...seriously. Since Aircraft basically just requires the geometry work and wrap, and almost no animation work, don't you think, honestly, that it could fit well in the Modeling Mini-Contest #4?
    Then we'd have both Aircraft contest and Fantasy Hero contest going on.

    no :(

    You guys dont understand, just because something doesnt "require" complex animations, doesnt mean you still cant give your model complex animations. By making the contest more accessible, we aren't restricting contestants, we are allowing more contestants the chance to enter. Just like what happened in the tank contest.

    Modeling contest numbers 15, 14 and 12 all had only 6 contestants, and 13 had 8.

    But number 16:Tanks, had 10 contestants. More contestants breeds more competition.

    :D hence, why aircraft is obviously the best contest

    I'm really craving terror models. But that's just me, even if its another theme I'll incorporate terror into it. I'm just really sadistic and want to scare little children, surely there are others like me out there...

    I don't really model for WC3 anymore, but I'd like to try steampunk for a final model. And yes, I know I originally said aircraft. But, I changed my mind! :D
