    Challenges feedback thread

    We had the Winter Games Challenge, wich lasted nearly 2 months, but there still was not much action. Which is quite enough for real Competitions out there (see the Substance "Titans" -Competition, it is also roughly 2 months) But the rewards are really top notch!!! IMO thats what someone is willing to spend his/her spare time for. Personally i think, it would be nice to have short weekends-challenges (speed sculpts, speed painting, speed texturing, speed everything else). Limiting the required time to aminimum. I think , the weekends mostly are not loaded with work, unless your'e a freelancer, there is always time for training on some weekends in the year/ month. Because for those monthly challenges it its hard to keep yourself motivated, maybe because no (physical) rewards in the end. I joined some competitions in the beginning, but lost motivation, even on my self chosen theme ^^ So my suggestion: Limit the Competition to a single task, allowing also non generalists to join, because in the last challenges there were always more steps to cover. But you maybe have only time to finish a texture, or a model, so you are even not motivated to join: Examples: - give them a base face/ Model to sculpt finest, sharp details to. - give them a model to texture. - give them a model to retopo/ UVing - give them a model to render within 3DCoat. - and so on I think that would be possible for a weekend project or a week project.

Im mainly using 3DCoat and MODO! Im mostly interested in getting less laggy brush behaviour on high polycounts

    Advise on System Configuration

    Thanks, Yeah, i noticed that: There are some OC Cards (GTX 580) with nearly 400 watt consumption. Thats really insane. So, if i grab one of these, i think i will stay with a single gpu. Those Maxwell gpus seem far more efficient in terms of power/noise.

    Advise on System Configuration

    Thanks, Here is my rig so far, http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3GTZQ I will use my current case, plus current hdd as additional drive, and my gtx 460 until i can grab a decent card. Not decided yet what to do with gpu, though.

    Advise on System Configuration

    Thank you all for hints and tipps. While a Titan is nice, its out of reach for me, since it will be 2/3 of my budget. Lol, i just saw on ebay a used rig, with triple SLI Titan Black!!! o-O How about SLI mode for 3DC, would there be an increase in performance, if i just get another gtx 460, just to bridge the time till some better gpus are available? (Ah Javis just saw, that you have two in your old workstation, what if they are in combination with an intel"?) CPU wise i think i will go for i7 4930k, 16GB ram( and upgrade later to 32gb) -fits the budget, because my boss agree to pay with hardware for my work overtime, "pre-taxed".

    Advise on System Configuration

    Thank you very much Jason& Don for your sharing your thoughts on the combination. I have to admit that i wasnt aware of the gpu issue. Is the Gtx 580 also better than GTX 780 for 3dCoat? regarding the cpu, im not sure if the i7 4930 will fit in my budget. But i will keep an eye on this.

    MODO 801 Release

    Yeah i probably will skip this release, too, since im just bought 701 on new year and instead invest the money in hardware this time. Although i was impressed by some features and could use them in my work. Glad, that the upgrade price is same for each preceeding version, hopefully it will remain so.

    my wip

    Start my WIP, hope that keeps me to be motivated to make decent image in the end, since it is only a hobby for me. I'm starting with my gorilla, head was posted also by me in a different topic (now with slightly modifications ). I will try to give him a better neck and extremities. Also a fur is planned to be done in Blender. Critics and tipps are welcome thanks Peter

    6th Challenge - Chimera Bust

    quick sketch for my chimera, "Eierlegende Wollmichsau" (There does not exist an english term, because its german origin Something like a Shmoo; Literal meaning: "egg-laying, wool and milk yielding pig"). Chimera of Pig/ Sheep/ cow/ chicken. Probably will add chicken feet to it later and eggs.

    WhileRomeBurns, Sketches

    that looks definetly great, and you only used voxels there. and its just your start Imagine how far you can get with 3dcoat, if you begin using Liveclay and Surfacemode for sculpting, too.

    my wip

    Armor

    Looks great as usual. does keyshot render Voxels, or how do you import it? Because i remember, that you prefer voxels.
  24. hab nur mal kurz durchgezappt, freue mich aber schon darauf es ganz anzusehen, wenn ich wieder zeit habe. Mir ist allerdings designtechnisch was aufgefallen. Gabs 'damals' schon Schweißnähte? Vielleicht liege ich aber auch falsch. Danke sehr für deine Mühen und vorallem Zeit die du für uns opferst.
