3D Modeling Challenge: Fantasy Characters is over! Here are the winners

3D Modelling Challenge: Fantasy Characters has officially ended on 14th of November. Yet, it was truly special due to many reasons.

It was the first challenge since 2020, meaning our community has been really waiting for such contests to be back. For the challenge we collaborated with YAHAHA Studios which is a free no-code platform that helps your 3D creation get started easily. Our partners established a prize pool of $10,000 which was distributed to 15 different winners. We are glad to share that the challenge received more than 1,300 submissions uploaded by 706 different designers!

Here are the winners of 2 different categories we had for this challenge: YAHAHA Special Awards (Judged by Yahaha Team) and The best 3D Fantasy Model (Judged by CGTrader Team).

Congratulations to everyone and thank you for your active participation!

CGTrader Designer Spotlight: Emir Y. Tınastepe

Who is Emir Yaren Tınastepe?

Hi! I am Emir Yaren Tınastepe from Turkey. I am 25 years old and I'm a computer engineer. I started 3d modeling in my university years just to make a survival game featuring our campus with my friends(never happened) but I did not stop modelling after that. I really love video games and I knew if I wanted to make my own game one day I would need 3d modelling skills. Along the way I published an Image to text app, a 2d puzzle game on play store, and composed music for my game on all music platforms. I am still a long way from my dreams.
