    3D MECHA:: Free For All

    Going to host the what I think is the very first 3D comp here. The theme is to create a 3d Mecha Robot in what ever 3D program you want. Also it has to be anime mecha.

    Rules:
    1. Posting pic must be below 102400 bytes.
    2. Must be able to submit 3d model.
    3. Once competitors are gathered, one month will be alotted for competition.

    Judge's will hopefully be some of the mods here. Judging will consist of two parts: Model and Presentation.

    Model - The model with no textures or neat special effects will be judged. Accounts for 50% of score.

    Presentation - Your loaded picture with textures and fancy stuff. Accounts for other 50%.
    Hello.

    Cool! I'm up for it, though, my submission'll probably look more like a cardoard box than mecha. I'll try though

    Every competition needs a prize. What does the winner get? And who will judge the entries?

    I don't have time to compete, but I'd be willing to be a judge.

    Good, at least one other compeditor, lol


    I'll post some pics up later. Hope WMLeeBo is still interested, even if the number of participants is low.



    BTW, what 3d app do you use? I use Blender . It's free! Unfortunately it only exports to a few formats (dxf, vrml 1.0, videoscape, avi, jpg), so you need a converter to get it to some apps. It's a really cool proggie though.

    Two more links to give any interested parties some ideas:

    http://www.steelfalcon.com/macrossmecha.html

    http://www.mahq.net/index.htm




    Both sites include detailed info about several mech's from different anime's. (I can't believe the detail some people put into describing them down to their every detail, lol. They have more time than I do )

    I saw this idea and was realy into it...
    but mech really isnt my style...
    i want to learn more about 3ds, but not the battle for me.. ill judge too...

    if anyone wants to attempt a ps tennis style 3d battle im game for a try!

    there was a very similar battle over at somethingleet.com not too long ago... it had good turnout, as it was more of a texture & materials battle...

    bah. do something guys. vertice counts... just as long as it looks like a mech. I'll start working on a 1960's version of a mech perhaps

    dang. that means I have to start up my windows machine though...

    lol, I'm working on one right now. I'm not the best at 3d, so the end result'll be interesting, but I'm having fun (and learning a thing or two).

    1960's? Astroboy, maybe? lol
