3D Challenge #084 - Art Adaptation

Challenge (CLOSED)
1st Place Winner:
a.j.unknow for Skull of Zurbarán
For this week, you are to take an existing art piece, and re-render it in all its 3D glory in SketchUp! This could be anything from a famous painting, sculpture, or even an entire art installation. Just be sure to model it in 3D and not just use textures! That means no photo match! (Thanks to Moboille for challenge IDEA)

Good luck and have fun with this one!!!

  1. General Notes:There will no obligation for a blog entry anymore. It is still allowed to post a link to your model or additional images, but it is not required anymore to submit a model to the challenges. The 3D Warehouse tag is still required though and should be added when uploading a model to the Warehouse.

    You can use the hyperlink code creator on the frontpage of the blog to create the code for a hyperlink in your message. Copy this code and paste it in the comment box on the place where your want the hyperlink to be.

    Challenge suggestions are welcome to be placed on the blog. Items will be noted and compiled on the moderator’s list. At that point, the initial comment for the suggestion may be deleted so as to maintain a streamline challenge thread for use of posting entries for the challenge and comments to models. Challenge suggestions have always been welcomed and taken under consideration.

    Please refrain from using background images in your models as it is the model itself that is being judged.

    You'll notice a new link on the main page that directs you to the First Place Certificate area to which winners are able to print a certificate with a picture of their model detailing their excellence. You can access the page through the main page of the blog.

    Good Luck!!!!

  6. Finished The Scream. Check warehouse!

  7. I will Be doing William Adolphe Bouguereau's "Compassion". This is a painting of our Lord Jesus Christ on the cross. DO NOT ATTACK ME FOR BEING A CATHOLIC.

    Original Painting: Compassion Painting

  8. I'm really glad to see you've selected this proposition, by the way, I almost finished mine. Nonetheless, I'd like to know why the styles & fog don't appear in the thumbnail, I think I have to click or lock something, please, help me then I could start using styles because I never used them before ;)

  9. I'm not in this challenge! It's to unsketchuppy for me... ;) But have fun!

  10. Damn, I wanted to make an Escher painting: Convex and Concave LinkBut after an half our I noticed that it was impossible to create it in 3D. It al depends on how a person sees the painting...

    I'll keep it with The Scream

  11. I'm working in a model based in a Escher painting:Another world
    OriginalRender from 3d model

    Cubic division of the spaceRelativity

  14. Well ! I have finished my entry, my choice is "Nostalgia for the Infinite" of Giorgio De Chirico, i hope you like it .


  15. What will be the next challenge? :)

  16. Next challenge (#085) will be posted on 21st may. Keep posting your suggestions on challenge topics.


  17. My model for this competition is the Andre The Giant poster.

  18. I think the next challenge should be something to do with LEGOS.

  19. Ya, a lego challenge would be cool... but it would be a lot of work for people (like me) who don't like, or don't have a real knack for working of of blueprints. its a good idea, maybee if it were made into a two week long challenge (i love two week long challenges!).

  20. I think a lego challenge would be cool, but instead of making the individual legos (Agh!) we make an already existing lego set ( star wars, exo force, bionocle-Etc. )

    Mr.jumpman V.3

  21. ya not just peices (although you'll need them to build the set). And possibly just any model, made-up (non existing lego set) or made by LEGO itself

    example of a Made-Up modelas long as the model is made of only lego bricks (or parts) i think it should be counted as an entry

  25. 3: Skull of Zurbarán (Dalí)by a.j.unknow
    It really looks like the real painting!

    2: Nostalgia for the Infinite... by moboille
    Nice job!

    1: Nighthawks (1942) by Edward...by JediCharles
    The perspective is really good

  26. 3pts. Skull of Zurbarán (Dalí)
    by a.j.unknow

    You caught the essence of the painting and it still looks like a scull.

    2pts. Roy Lichtenstein Whaam! Pop Art 1963
    by wasp2

    Nice work with the plane.

    1pts. The Scream by Edvard Munch in 3D by HenkieTenk

    Your version has a quite a comical face. And you kind of left a tutorial for creating the face off to the side.

  27. 3 points to “Nighthawks (1942) by Edward Hopper” by JediCharles. Very good model with good perspective. With persons would be perfect but I know the difficulty in SU and we have only one week for the challenge.
    2 points to “Nostalgia for the Infinite (Giorgio De Chirico)” by moboille. Good perspective and good final result. Maybe you should change the orientation of the model and shadows and reduce the fog.
    1 point to “The Scream by Edvard Munch in 3D” by HenkieTenk. Good model and tutorial but I think the face has too much geometry.

  28. 3 Points:
    "Skull of Zurbaran (Dali)"
    By a.j.unknow

    Very Cool! Great choice of art, and great adapation!

    2 Points:

    Brings back memories of high-school art class. Nice work on the face!

    1 Point:
    "Nighthawks (1942) by Edward Hopper"

    Love the perspective!

  29. 3 points : Skull of Zurbaran (Dali) by a.j.unknow Very impressive the master would have liked it !
