A couple of months ago we started our new 3D Character: Female challenge to encourage designers, artists and enthusiasts to create and promote a more welcoming environment for females in VR and game development.
There's still time for designers to jump into the Female character challenge, which has the greatest prize pool of all previous challenges thanks to our wonderful partners at Quixel, 3D-Coat, FOX Renderfarm, Cebas, Marmoset and Allegorithmic.
With the competition heating up, we’ve picked a couple of our favorite submissions thus far, but, with more than ten days to go, we expect to see many more great models enter the challenge!

3D models are a crucial part of any digital production, including virtual reality, game development, architecture, 3D printing and movies. If you are wondering how to create 3D models, you have many ways to get into 3D design, as well as many stages of the modeling process. Each has numerous software solutions at varying prices and difficulty levels. We picked 15 great free 3D modeling applications that might help you get into 3D modeling or get your skills to the next level. Many of these are free for non-commercial use only, but others, like Blender, let you create models which you can then sell in 3D marketplaces, like CGTrader.
