September and the first half of October was a tough time for all of our designers, who are keen gamers. They were invited to put away controllers of their game consoles and work hard on game models instead. And they did! We can just guess what inspired them. Whatever it was - it made great impact. This one was really challenging for us - designers made a great stack of incredible models. However, some of them were better than the others. And here they are.
Last month was a busy one: we announced the winners of 3D Character Challenge, started Staples 3D Printing Challenge and got 3D Game Model Challenge going on. We expected to have some innovative models which could make an impact on design for computer games. The results surpassed our expectations.
409 models were uploaded for this challenge by 96 designers. A lot of them were really amazing. I said it before, but believe me - it was a hard task for all of our team to decide who were the best this time. It is nice that the participants made very diverse items: there were some models of the surface and buildings, made for games. The majority of models, however, was vehicles and characters.
Well, for the second time in a row, the best model of the challenge is the one which depicts a creepy creature. And, for the second time in a row, the details is the key factor to identify the winner.
The Beast could be easily used in any role-playing game. We think that this model is a perfect example of a game-ready model.
Pianpat Ronruangrit must be a big fan of race games. He uploaded four models designed for the race game. This one - Pit Crew was the best. Mechanics waiting for a race car in a garage are very realistic.
This model gained the title of the 1st runner-up to its author, because it is designed for the specific game and, of course, because of details, once again.
Have you ever played any military game? We bet you did! rombynas made a very impressive model of British MBT Challenger 2. It is made with precision and might be one of the best models in the market of military computer games right now. Well, the author definitely deserves the name of the 2nd runner-up for it.
humster3D was amazing this time - he uploaded 80 models for this challenge. It is interesting that all of them are 3D models of animals. Well, probably, if you would like to create a game for National Geographic or Discovery Channel, you will know who you should ask to do the job.
"Spacewar" was one of the earliest digital computer games. If someone would like to make an ultra-modern version of it, then Bogdan is definitely the one who should make the graphics for it. He brought 23 models which guaranteed him the name of the 1st runner-up in the Best portfolio category. Spectacular 3D art of sci-fi.
The 2nd runner-up in this category is 3DArtisan who uploaded 37 game-ready models for this challenge. The diversity of them was the factor, which caught our attention. Vehicles, buildings, aircrafts, characters and even a racetrack - he has done it all. Well done.
We are flattered by your interest in this challenge. Therefore, we hope that you will like other challenges on CGTrader.com and will be even more active. Come and grow with us!
