    skate/hover board

    Totally delightful creation! Extra special that its Darwin's hoverboard. I love that you didnt stick to flat and straight lines - the shape is so beautifully done. Mr D would have been so pleased.

    Jumper S56921 (jumping spider mech)

    So This is where I was up to when I entered to competition - Still in Voxel Sculpt room, basic textures and all the body parts present with some pipe and grid detailing. I had already named the spider Jumper S56921 - (Part of a fleet of spider jumpers, of course!). Now I need to add a "cockpit"for a driver / controller to make this fellow into a vehicle. And then add more interesting steampunk aspects and proper texturing etc... I still have to master the use of layers and reducing resolution of the bits so the available memory does not run out, and getting things onto the paint room - -- so plenty of learning still for me to be able to improve and complete this project. The competition is a great challenge to spur our development - Thanks.

    Jumper S56921 (jumping spider mech)

    My steampunk jumper was quite advanced but here are some shots of body parts.The Abdomen and Head I shaped mainly with cut-offs from ovoid primitives. The great thing about the jumping spider is those large very reflective eyes. This shader I made in the scuplt room, is a rough approximation of what the main eyes will be like.
  10. I first saw this competition soon after it started, and I messed around with an idea for it, but my skills were not up to the job, so I forget about it and went to another 3D Coat project. Then 3 days ago I started work on a jumping spider idea which i'd got from photographing such a cute spider in my garden, and today I saw this competition was still running - SO i've pucked up the courage to enter.

    Seven wheels for speed

    Very unusual and cool concept - looking great too. (hope theres a small transparent window for the driver to see straight forward?)

    Introduce yourself!

    Greetings 3DCoat people. I am Keryn from South Africa. I purchased the education version just before Xmass 2013 and am truly amazed at this wonderful program. Andrew and the team must be rare geniuses! The program is a lot to learn but the many tutorials are getting me there steadily. I do ceramic sculptor and am used to modelling in real clay; and I also use Carrara, Bryce, Hexagon and Daz Studio (since c. 2010). My real job is in wildlife conservation / ecology, but because I am starting to get a bit too old for running around in the African bush with large and dangerous (but wonderful) beasts, I am moving into 3D CG Art and animation, hoping to use these for wildlife conservation. awareness. I am beginning my 3Dcoat learning adventure at the beginning of the animal alphabet, with an aardvark model. (Aardvarks are cute nocturnal termite-eating animals the size of medium-sized dogs). Hope I can do justice to the many abilities of 3D Coat.
