The SandBag Challenge

Here are my 40 triangle sandbags from the Big Sandwich Game test page:  These were some really tough little challenges.  Made me think a bunch.  Well, I guess I get to build a fort now.  =D  Who doesn't like building forts?  I'll be back soon with a few more fun renders.

Ammo Can (another Big Sandwich Challenge)

Well, here she is.  My Ammo Can.  This was a tricky little challenge because you are only allowed 350 triangles (alright, no problem) and it has to be functional :D.  Ha ha... that threw me for a minute. But here she is, fully functional.  All of the pivots have been adjusted to allow for easy peazy animation of the handle and the lid.  I also modeled it under the 350 triangle limit... so that's pretty cool.  I'll post the texture map soon... I may even make a little animation showing it's fancy opening and closing ability. ;)  But, I should make supper before my stomach disturbs my neighbors.  Cheers! T.

Oil Drum

Hello Everyone!  I found this artist test on the Big Sandwich Games Site ( ) and I thought I would do it up!  I started with the Oil Drum challenge.  Naturally, after you've finished you can see ways in which you would improve, but I'm eager to move on to the next challenge. :D  If anyone knows of a good game Oil Drum reference, I would really appreciate it if you sent me a link.  It's hard to know how well you did with out seeing what others were able to do.  Thanks and bye for now!
