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!

“It’s great to know that no matter how complicated and tedious 3D production process might be, the artists still manage to see beyond the technical limitations and use powerful software as freely as a simple canvas, creating meaningful and strikingly beautiful work,” says Kirill Tokarev, one of the judges of CGTrader Awards and editor-in-chief at 80.lv. And we cannot agree more with Kiril. The artwork submitted for CGTrader Awards in just a bit more than two months is exceptional: the quality is impressive, detail and realism achieved are mind-blowing, and engagement from global artist community is something we could not have imagined to have in the very first year of these awards.
