Title: [ COMPLETE ] Challenge #17: Pigs
Post by: hihosilver on May 13, 2010, 02:01:15 am
PIG
(http://i565.photobucket.com/albums/ss96/trollcats/computer_pig_logo-cartoon-pig.jpg)

It's time for a new challenge, and this time I felt a return to a bit of good ol' organic modeling would be good!  The theme is pigs.  It can be realistic, stylized, just a head bust, robotic pig, a man-pig, whatever you wish, just stick to the theme!  Your submission can be either 3D render or animation, both are acceptable.  The challenge will last for 2 weeks, meaning...

The deadline is May 26th!

So get up and roll in the mud a bit then get to work!

Ohhh I got this one!  Yup, yet again pitching into a fit of something... may finish a challenge yet! Biggest, ugliest, sorry-est case of a warthog I can muster... but what ever I am doing, I hope to animate, and use part of the Pink Floyd tune "Pigs-Three Different Ones"...

Would it be politically incorrect to do something about the police?  Just kidding.

All right, I'll try this. Shredzilla and Mr. Pig... I'll have two projects at once, but that is the best way I work, when I get tired (or irritated something isn't working out) of one, I'll work on the other.

3DGeek11:  I challenge you to get further than me!  ;)

Josmic8or: You should have a fine design... I can see pigs coming out great with your style of model work.

ENSONIQ5: Heck, I don't see why not! Go for it! He did say "...a man-pig, whatever you wish..."

DragonSlayer: Wow, that was fast! Are ya achin' for sum bacon?

$imon: C'mon, you know you want to! Jump in and quit later! I always do :P

WOAH!!! I GOT FURTHER THAN I THOUGHT I WOULD!!!!!! I just hope the triangles won't give me greef when I skin it though. :P It's that kind of thing that happens to me... the mesh looks great, but animatable it is not!

By the way, I LOVE bacon! So yeah, I'm achin'.

I'll try to make something for this one!
Here is what I have after 3 hours of learning an modeling... I hope I can finish it.
But this is not yet at all the outcome I want :-\

Great start by everyone!  The competition looks strong for this challenge.  I hope people keep joining and finishing these challenges, this is going great.
ENSONIQ5: As long as it goes by the theme ;)

Post by: Josmic8or on May 14, 2010, 05:50:55 am
WHEW!I modeled,textured and rigged this cute baby pig today!
I think I might make a 30 sec animation with it called "EARTH PIGS VS. ALIEN PIGS"
(Not done yet though)

GOOD LUCK TO ALL! :) :)

I got the pig's basic mesh done, now I need to model the jaw and the tusks. After that, I'm going to make a hillside with an ardvark hole in it, mesh to mesh some grass, texture the pig and earth, and then I have a Warthog waking up for the morning!

Nice start Josmic8or an d DragonSlayer, I hope a lot of ather join the game, It's a fun one, the first time it is allowed to make the pig!
Some progress on my side...
I'm almost done with modeling, just to subdivide one time and add/adjust a few details.
Hope I can make this, the UV mapping and begin the texture tomorow. It's important for me to complete the pig this weekend because I need time to do the scene I want (only a still render, but rather complex)

Tof:Cool cartoony pig!Can't wait to see the scene he's going to be in!
Dragonslayer:Is that Pumbaa the warthog from THE LION KING  ??? :D Jus kidding.Great work!Looks very realistic!

Here's a test scene I made with the pigs-

Nice work so far guys!

Dragonslayer: I think on your model you could change a few things to make him more 'piglike', the ears could be quite a bit bigger, also the legs could be a lot shorter. Finally adding a lot of FAT is always good for a pig ;)

Josmic8or, I like your cartoony pigs, they could be a bit more dirty though if they are playing in the mud!

I'm still hoping to pig out somehow... and get something done over the weekend of nothing else.

$imon, are you sticking your nose into others' businesses again?  ;)

Title: Re: Challenge #17: Pigs
Post by: Kubajzz on May 23, 2010, 02:58:44 pm
Haha, I love your video Josmic8or! Great job, the music is perfect and the animation is very well done!

Awesome work Daniel! The model seems to be very clean and the texture looks very realistic.

Hey $imon, your porktrait is really hilarious, lol ROFL I couldn't stop laughing ;D ;D ;D... Huh... Ok, seriously now, you should stop using those magic mushrooms :P Anyway, the thing looks to me like an EMO pig, don't know why :D Nice model though.

I should start working on my entry, I still have 3 days left...
Title: Re: Challenge #17: Pigs
Post by: $imon on May 23, 2010, 03:25:54 pm
An EMO pig eh? uhm well uh yea, Great! :p that was exactly what I was going for ;)

You still have to start on your entry???  Uh oh, at least you promised you would make something :D can't get out of it now!
Title: Re: Challenge #17: Pigs
Post by: daniel99 on May 23, 2010, 04:14:34 pm
Wow, Josmic8or. It seems pigs can fly after all. :))
I like the colour of your pork's proktrait, $imon.
Title: Re: Challenge #17: Pigs
Post by: Tof on May 24, 2010, 06:55:30 pm
Congratulations for the nice works everybody! (Daniel99, can you show us about your UV mapping?)
I had unfortunnally no time to work on my one so I have no final entry... :'(
"Rendez-vous" in a next challenge!
Title: Re: Challenge #17: Pigs
Post by: hihosilver on May 25, 2010, 04:25:43 am
2 days left!
Awesome entries so far, I hope to see more!
Title: Re: Challenge #17: Pigs
Post by: 3Dgeek11 on May 25, 2010, 06:44:53 pm
I may not get to do this after all, but I'll do my absolute best. ^^
Title: Re: Challenge #17: Pigs
Post by: Arik_the_Red on May 27, 2010, 03:10:21 pm
Well, I never even got started with this :(  I guess I won't be bringing home the bacon this round... If Ihad a few more days I could come up with something, but that's how it goes...

Josmic8or - I do like your animation work! The faces and expressions are fun and the rendering quality is very good.

daniel99 - I would have to say that's the first time I saw a farm pig head mounted "trophy style"...  But, good model. Nicely textured.

$imon - I don't do well at compliments, but your pig's great!
Title: Re: Challenge #17: Pigs
Post by: hihosilver on May 27, 2010, 09:03:59 pm
Good stuff by everyone!  This competition is over, and great entries by all you guys!  If you're working on one and just havent finished, keep it going and finish it up.  A finished model is always a good accomplishment.  Just because you didn't have the time to do it in the 2 weeks doesn't mean you should stop and not post it!

So now on to voting.  Get at it!
Title: Re: [ VOTING ] Challenge #17: Pigs
Post by: $imon on May 28, 2010, 08:21:39 am
2 options in a 3-way vote is a bit weird by the way ;) I didn't have to choose..

Anyway good job everyone.. A shame not everyone got to finish (cough.. kubajzz.. cough..) haha, but still good to see some entries, sorry I didn't have time to make something better haha.

arik, my pig really is 'great' , he's quite a hungry big pig ;)

Great work guys.  I would have entered something but I am moving house and haven't had time to do any modelling/animating.... also I suck at organics!  Would have loved to have built Robopig though...!

I voted, btw. :)

I personally liked all the entries. But I have really got a kick out of the personality of Josmic's animations. I especially like the expressions of the last pig.

Great stuff, all of ya!
