The Spring 2017 3D Modeling Challenge will run for 8 total weeks, from 3 April 2017 to 28 May 2017, and is intended to help people interested to get a bit of 3D modeling practice (1 hour per week, on a new model every week).
Everybody who is participating will spend 1 hour on a model (of their own choosing) per week, and share it with the rest of
the people in the group.
The focus is modeling, not texturing, rigging, or animation. 1 hour isn't a whole lot of time to do all of those things, so the focus is on just modeling, and I suspect most people will just leave their models with the default texture/material in whatever program they choose to use
There are no constraints on what programs, tools, or techniques you use.
There won't be any formal instruction on how to model or use the software, but I'm sure there will be discussion and people helping each other out.
You're allowed to work beyond the hour on a model, but should probably post pictures and/or the model file itself at the 1-hour mark (and then perhaps additionally the final version).
You should submit some pictures of your model, the model file itself, or both in the forum (links below) every week by the end of the day Sunday.
