Default Cube challenge

Mike Pan is a 3d artist from Vancouver, Canada. He does great art, great books and if you don’t know him yet, you should (visit his website now).
Apart from the previously mentionned talents, he is also a creative self-challenging person.

DefaultCubisme??
For his latest project “DefaultCubisme” he decide every day for 30 days to create an artwork based on the default blender Cube… yes the one you get when you start. You can add modifiers,  arrays, move cams, add light, helper curves, but you can NOT modify those 8 vertices, no sculpting or other “modelling” (complete guidelines here)
I have been following his progress on twitter and on his blog, and I have been amazed at all the possibilities. Just check the provided blend file to see how the magic happens.
To be limited by the number of modelling tools, one has to find workarounds, or “hack” tools from their normal use. One can end up with 10+ modifiers on the base cube. So I wanted to try too 🙂

Here is my attempt at it :

And here is the blend file for the scene (try it and enter Edit Mode):

A few modifiers, particles, blender internal with freestyle and some compositing tricks for background. Fun!

Now try it too!!!

It’s really a great way to learn new stuff because you often dont have a goal, you just start the cube, add stuff, turn in circle for a few minutes and suddenly see a shape or composition come out.

I can only suggest you to try it…

Kids are finally asleep, kitchen is clean, put your favorite relaxing tune, sit back,  launch blender, and start playing. You will be surprised by what happens next!
