CG Cookie Community Low Poly Space Station Challenge
Hey, any one up for a space walk? 👩🚀👨🚀
You have got off to a flying start on your Blender journey, how about taking a challenge!!
Don't worry no space walks.
What - A Low Poly Space Station
When - July 5th 2021 - August 1st 2021
Why - To challenge yourself and practice what you learnt from the Low Poly Rocket Course
The Challenge: Model a Low Poly Space Station 🛰
Using the same techniques and style as your low poly rocket, model a space station Elon Musk's SpaceX would be proud of. Your space station should be built with a traditional modular space station design. Your space station can be of the orbital type (floating in space), or if you have space in your yard, a ground based planetary outpost.
Those more experienced out there, can take an extra challenge if you wish, and land / dock your rocket on your space station.
- Use Blender - Using the techniques from the Low Poly Rocket course
- The model must be your own creation
- Submit your result to the CG Cookie Gallery by August 1st 2021 23:59 US CST
You are encouraged to create a WIP thread in the community forum with the title Space Station Challenge 2021 WIP - [Enter Station Name] , Tiangong, Genesis, and International Space Station names are all taken.
Your WIP thread should consist of progressive images with a short explanation of the process at each stage.
When you post your result in the Gallery, add a link to your WIP in the description so the judges can easily find it.
Why a Challenge 🏆
A challenge rather than a contest because its for you to challenge yourselves and the knowledge you gained from a course to create a masterpiece of your own making.
A rules based challenge to maintain consistency and fairness, whilst also maintaining safety to prevent accidents from space debris.
A challenge to be the best you can be from the knowledge you have today, while striving to be even better tomorrow than you was yesterday.
Most importantly, a challenge to have some fun.
