Awesome render headwax! It really looks like a fairytale!

Jehovahenker:
As raxx said it is easier to keep the meshes seperate. For actual bodyparts, for example a head, it is more common to model it in one mesh.

If you want to keep different meshes together while moving, scaling or rotating, you can group them.

Jehovahenker:  My usual rule of thumb is if you could dismantle it in real life, leave the meshes separate.  If you couldn't, join them up.  For example, a car tyre could be removed from the wheel, so I would make them as two separate objects and group them.  On the other hand a head cannot (or more accurately SHOULD not) be dismantled from the rest of the body, so they should ultimately be one mesh, unless there is a very specific reason to keep them separate.

My reasoning for keeping certain meshes separate is that models made for one project could be reused in a later project, but in a different way.  For example, the bench I made for this project could be re-rendered in a rough setting, something like Kubajzz's (awesome) render, but to make it look right it would need to be distressed and vandalised.  Removing planks, bending bolts and tweaking textures is far easier with separate meshes than if it was all joined up with a complex UV map.  Conversely, the reason for joining meshes, particularly with organic structures, is to more accurately represent reality and to avoid problems with subdivision, as well as keeping the poly count down I suppose.  People generally don't have a seam twixt head and neck... at least nobody I know does.

Headwax:  Another triumph sir!  Brilliant as usual!

Really good work here by all.  INCREDIBLE.

I wanted to give my bench some "surrounding" and came up with this.  This is my final render.

Modelled in -Anim8or.

Rendered in-Anim8or ART.

Final notice! Challenge will end 11 hours from now (approx 9pm Eastern). We're at a whopping 19 entries so far which is pretty good for the first challenge, even considering that this challenge was pretty easy ;)

This is my entry - I forgot my main file on my computer at home with all my updates so I put this together real quick. I've been working on this from another computer with internet and was going to add it to the other scene, but this will have to do. It's a quicky but I like the bench. Didn't have the time I wanted - Oh well - It's all for fun! And yes I enjoyed this comp.

When is the next one and what will it be?

Raxx, it seems that voting twice in this poll is not possible.
I wanted to vote for best effort and for best picture but after one vote the checkboxes disappeared and I can't vote a second time ???

Lynn, you were able to check two boxes and then cast two votes at once.. I'm afraid you used up your votes now as far as I know >.<

you'll just have to cast that vote for me next time! ;)
