Monthly Modelling Contest - November, December 2011

Theme: Incredible Mechanics

Make any Mechanism (gears, belts, screws, whatever). Make the most incredible mechanism you can imagine ;) It can be a clockwork, car part. Free the engineer in you!

The Rules:

1) Use your own models made for this MMC. No pre-made, purchased, or free models except plants and trees.
2) Using programs or plugins that generate trees, plants, buildings, etc. is allowed.
3) Use any 3D and 2D programs that you have licenses for. 2D programs may be be used for supporting functions such as making textures, post processing for lighting etc., combining with photo background, special effects ...
4) Optional but HIGHLY recommended. Make a work in progress (WIP) thread for your contest entry. Post a link to your WIP in the comments thread.
5) Post your final image submission in this thread. One image no larger than 800 x 600.
6) You may create as many contest entries as you like but each must be a separate project with its own models, WIP, and final image.

Dates and Deadlines:

I decided to extend the MMC to december because of Xmass stress and to give you more time for your entry. I think making next MMC in december would be very risky in therms of participation due to xmass and lack of time, so...

The competition begins now and ends on Friday 9th December 2011 at 12:00 hours CET (central europian time, thats GMT +1, cz, germany, austria, etc.).

The poll will start imidiatly after deadline and will end on Friday 16th December, 2011.


Main Contest Thread, this thread, is reserved for the theme, rules and the posting by contestants of their final images.

Comments Thread. A thread for general discussion will be created for this MMC. Place WIP links there too.

Poll Thread. The poll thread will appear on the day specified above.

Good luck!

ok, MMC is closed. I think there is no need for poll, coz Finis (thanks to him) made the only entry here and therefore is the WINNER. Gratz, nice job with the machine.
Next MMC is again on you.
