Weekend Contest Winners: Default Cube & Spike Thing

18

This weekend's contest was a total and utter madhouse! With 275 comments and over 60 entries this was by far the biggest one yet. I guess Mike's challenge of figuring out how to apply modifiers, duplicate and what not brought out the best in all of you.

Mike had the honor of picking one winner, and the community could vote for their favorite! Mike writes:

I kept a close eye on all the entries over the weekend and I am going with the animated cube by Sam Brubaker. It looks like it's the community favourite too!

Absolutely right! But because two winners is more fun than one, I'll announce that the community winner is Spike Thing by gandalf3:

34 - gandalf3

Here are the runners up. And don't forget to check the contest thread for many, many more artworks and Blender screenshots.

Have fun!

      Given the slapstick nature of my submission and the outrageous number of votes it got, I personally asked that the win go to someone who actually exemplified the contest better. It would've been a grievous tragedy if I had won. Hahaha!

      Indeed. Had a lot of first-time entries try out for this one. Hopefully, we'll see another great response this week.

        • I think it is an impossible mission... Seeing the number of entries and the quality of the output there might not be a better topic than this. So after all, we now understand the spirit of Ton to choose the cube as the default Blender object! We are enlightened!

    A request: All these entries are awesome (not just the winner).

    So how about sharing how they were created?

    If a full-fledged tutorial is too much for a WEEKEND activity, at least record it and share it as a speed modeling video (no audio needed; not even a background music track).

    This is on the lines of Malcolm Baldrige Award (MBNQA), where the winners generously share the secrets of how their system works, so that others can emulate them.

    Likewise, at least the top 3 winners (if not all entrants) should share their secrets too!
