In celebration of the amazing design work done on the Designer Schwag and Sports & Hobbies challenges, we are happy to announce yet another round of creativity, collaboration and amazing prizes - all coming your way with PBR Challenge: Interior Design. The good news is that this time the technical requirements are less restrictive and are focused on making a perfect PBR model. For this challenge we are looking for realistic single object models related to interior design. This includes, but is not limited to, household objects, furnishings and decorations. From a dining room table to a bookshelf; an armchair, sofa or chair to a chandelier or lamp; from cushions, curtains, or vases to architectural elements such as decorative doorknobs or ornate picture frames - think outside the box and show us what 3D can do.
With the growing number of 3D applications like VR and AR, we are seeing an increased demand for female-friendly models of women. Nevertheless, many female character models are still oversexualized (come on, female armor does not improve by becoming skimpier!). This makes finding a suitable model for realistic and female-friendly representation needlessly difficult, and is one of the many reasons why women are discouraged from entering game development, VR, and 3D modeling.
These are the reasons why we are partnering up with active members from Women in VR/AR to bring more awareness of how women are represented in the 3D industry, and are calling on all designers to create and upload more female characters to CGTrader. Our great partners at Allegorithmic, Marmoset, Quixel, Cebas, 3D-Coat, and FoxRenderfarm are also supporting this change and are helping us bring you a new 3D Challenge: Female Characters. Great rewards, like software licenses and rendering credits, are waiting for designers who create superb female character models!
