Re: Fryndlyskese Weapons Arsenal

Ok, I've finished! digital

I think, I'll find some time tomorrow to upload the images and write a little accompanying text.

Btw, one question and two suggestions, Blacklemon:
Q1: The pics you posted in your first post, only examples or your contest entry already?
S1: Let's add an "i" to the thread title. big_smile
S2: Let's revert the voting system to "old school", perhaps? Public voting thread, once you feel enough entries have been made to close the contest. Then give everybody a week to vote (everybody? only participants?). That would be far more communicative than off-forum email voting - and hopefully more fun, too. smile

Oh, and come on guys, sacrifice an hour and drop an entry!

How about both ways?

Re: Fryndlyskese Weapons Arsenal

--- Official entry ---
As you know, the ethics section of my brain felt slightly uneasy about the task to model weapons. While looking for an object to model inspiration struck me and I decided to do the following. I really like it, because it is far from violent in the first place, is enough of a challenge for my modelling and texturing skills, and it fits in so well with Friendlyskies: who would use it on a rainy day? The perfect addition for a Friendlyskies Arsenal! big_smile

The only people I can think of who would find it inappropriate I'd call "Holzspielzeugfraktion" in German. wink However, my ethical concerns are limited: my second best idea was a menacing implementation of Blacklemon's infamous bladegun, hehe.

The first is my favorite! But to show off the geometry and comply with contest rules I added two more views of the model.

The water pistol is a single polymesh object (blue), the pumping mechanism is an assembly of many objects (white). No post-processing used, I only added the sticker and my name in PS.

I like the result. birthdayboy

Re: Fryndlyskese Weapons Arsenal

Thank you, vidiot, Blacklemon and Truth!

@vidiot: And I thought, I had to explain "Holzspielzeugfraktion" to our foreign friends. Instead, I have to ask for the meaning of "steinstark"? smile Sounds like said by one of the Flintstones?

@Blacklemon: Hehe, after I scribbled it onto a piece of paper on my desktop, I had to get it into the virtual world and on the pictures!

Btw, it seems our thread title doesn't like to be pushed! big_smile So, I'll remain silent on this topic from now on. ninja

Re: Fryndlyskese Weapons Arsenal

Hi!

Nice waterpistol smile

Got my PC back from the shop (new motherboard and some upgrade...), so here's my humble attempt. At first I was thinking of something out of an Y-shaped piece of wood and rubber band but ende up with another classic. wink
