  1. another stupid challenge

  2. It's a real lazy challenge. O,o. May I suggest some mad tips for upcoming challenges?;
    1-Chimera - participants can show their skills in organic shapes
    2-Hanging garden(s) - it is more architectural, designic. It could be everywhere in any stiles and in any size.
    Nice day to all you guys!

  3. I will try some, but not really with much enthusiasm..... not my challenge really

  4. chin up all :) i really didnt mind doing this one , able to do more than what i can do in 3d ,and yes im sure its borring to u vets here but at least you were good sports about it and did something for it :)

    any way loaded my fairy for this challenge have a look and let me know what u think ,,

    have a good one all :)

  5. i can honestly say that was kind of fun =) - loaded up my keepers and since there is still plenty of time left i'm going to try one a little more difficult HAHA wish me luck

  6. 偶爾上來逛逛,下次不知是否還有緣再進來,先祝您平安順利!!!............................................................

  7. Can make 2.5D for this challenge?

  9. Personally I think this challenge is fine the way it is. I say this because whenever I decide to use sketchup for an arch. studio I am always struggling at the end to find decent 2d components to finish off a scene.

  10. only one suggestion for this challenge as well as others , we really should consider limiting the number of entries per person to like two ,

    dont get me wrong its cool that some of you are able to do it so fast but it also takes away from the idea of the contest ,

    only thing i didnt like in this one is that more seem to be doing "cut outs " instead of making a 2d pic themselves ,

    im working on a more detailed one that im hoping to be able to get done in time , if not i will still load it anyways when i do get it , think its one you will like :)

    have a good day all :)

  11. I understand the concerns regarding this challenge, as it is a little easy for al of the experienced hardened modelers among you, but I must say, making the example model was actually really much fun. This challenge is to attract the people who are new to Sketchup. So hang in there, have a little fun in 2D for a change, and make a suggestion for Challenge #104!

    By the way CK, what you you mean by 2,5D? Because as far as I know, fractions aren't possible in the math of dimensions.

  12. I also thought that this challenge wasn't so attractive. But now, I've got bunch of ideas to play with 2D components.

  13. I think about arrange 2D look like 3D, just an idea.

    I still thinking about what I should to make.

  14. Please welcome Le Corbusier's Modulor in your silhouette 2D gallery!

  15. 不會從失敗中找尋教訓的人,成功之路是遙遠的。..................................................

  16. 你不能總是得到你所想要的。但是,如果你嘗試了一段時間,你也許會發現你得到你所需要的。

    3pts to the keepers - lots of detaill and over all good pic

    2pts to funny boy - old school as it was is what made this one soo great !!

    1 pt to jansen -2d ppl good idea and nice work done on these

  19. 3pts. The SketchUp 2d people essentials pack by Janson - Great work and lots of it.
    2pts. The Keepers by mbuzzyk - Good details and use of textures though they look just as good without the textures and the flames.
    1pt. Windmill Dutch Face Me 2D by HenkieTenk - I like the rotating aspect. Nice trick.

  20. 3 points - 2d collection by Jansen - I like girl on the beach :). This is lots of drawing work and painting, and you made it fine.

    1 point - funny boy by GameMaster01 - Another idea for 2D people in cartoon style.

    Another work in this challenge which is big different from Jedi Charles. I can't give point because I think it's too much far from the challenge topic. But it's very interesting, I recommended to download and play!
