For the fourth year now, our grade nine students have been doing 3D modeling using Blender. A couple of weeks ago, our students finished up their first assignments, and I gave the top modelers the option of showing off their work. This year one of my students came in already an expert at 3D modeling (far, far better than I am), so he’s been inspiring other students to go above what I’ve seen in previous years. Without further ado, here are the top models from each of the three grade nine classes (click on the pictures for Full HD renders).
Nice use of materials, with a colorful choice for a background image.
Very creative and very different than most of the others. I love the key.

I normally don’t teach animation until the end of the year, but Yubin didn’t want to wait and came up with this. Very nice!
The artistic eye used to compose this scene makes this project really stand out.
I love the double lock thing going on here.
The chain just makes this look cool.
And wow! Annan used the game physics in Blender to get this chain to rest on the table. This looks great!
The final render looks good, but you need to download and open the source to really appreciate this scene. We’re seeing the front of a classroom from inside a locker, with the lock hanging on the door. Mohammad designed the entire classroom and it looks great (and incidentally, looks like most of the classes in the school).
When I first looked at this, I thought JHarake had found a great background image. Then I realized that he didn’t use a background image. This is a complete 3D scene, created by a student who makes his teacher’s most intricate Blender projects look like the scribblings of a small child. Well done JHarake!
