Varoom Roadster

I had this model lying around and I just had to see how it looks with Lightwave's carpaint node. I must say it turned out great, I'll try it on my version of the Mean Machine next :)

This is iPup's big brother and he likes to cause trouble. Although he can't bite, those huge front claws can cause some major be warned. grrrrr

Robo Puppy

I found this great gallery of robots, but not just any boring robots you find on the web these days. These have style, a personalty and are so cool.

Check it out: robotart

I set out to model the little black dog in this photo but quickly went my own way. I'll post some renders of her big brother as soon as I finish the textures.

Quick Draw Mcgraw in 3D

He's the fastest draw in the west and goes by the name Mcgraw. One of my favorites, to be honest, I like most of the classic cartoon characters. They are just so well designed and brought to life with great voices :)

Tweety Bird

As part of the previous challenge, I attempted to model Tweety. This is how far I got in 90 minutes, pretty bad :)

Some hours later, it ended up like this:

After all that, I realized something was missing. Yes you guessed it, his eyelashes. I might get to them in the future.

ps. these were all modeled and rendered in Lightwave 3d 9.5.

Snoopy in 90 minutes

Welcome to my blog, I hope you find it interesting.

Members of Newtek's forum have started 3d speed challenges recently, it's fun trying to get much as possible done in the time limit. If you are into 3d, it's a great way to expand your skills.

Here's Snoopy, modeled in just a touch over the 90 limit...I had to redo the limbs, but it's funny how you can waste time even when not trying to.

Here's a rendered version:

All the best,
