Here They Are: Meet The Finest Creatures Made For Character Challenge!

Here They Are: Meet The Finest Creatures Made For Character Challenge!

3D Character Challenge was started in the beginning of August. 3D artists had a month and a half to take yoga classes, massage their heads, try hypnosis or do whatever they need to have an effective brainstorm to figure out what character they want to create and present in this competition. We had a hard week deciding who won this competition, but finally the winners are here!

It was a really active month in our galaxy this August. There were a few meteor showers. If you like sci-fi books, the idea that a meteor could bring an alien life form to Earth doesn’t seem so crazy. So, we had an idea meteor shower in CGTrader.com. And it brought some unearthly creatures for sure!

348 models were presented for the challenge, but some of them were far from matching the standards. However, a lot of incredible characters were created by the participants. The types of characters varied from simple human beings to sharks, monsters, elves, and even a walking broom. Congrats, guys, you were really original in this challenge. By the way, there were 93 challengers.

Details, details and details once again. That’s what bought the jury. 50 000 polygons here? Really?! Really. We couldn’t believe it too, but it’s true. Heavy Demon is made by Erasmus. It’s his first, but, hopefully, not the last his model on CGTrader.com. Professionalism shines bright and from afar! This character is conceptual, has everything you could ever want for a character – every small detail is perfect.

Now, there is an idea! This model was the only which could be compared to the Heavy Demon in the precision of details. But the main thing which set the author of this character as the 1st runner-up was the idea. The Leprechaun who has a goblin in his hat is something we did not expect. Well done, Nazedo! And it was done exclusively for the challenge. So, the idea is completely fresh.

2nd Runner-up

Tomasz Rozkosz is known for his car models, but now he hit us with a different approach – a NASA Astronaut Apollo model. It looks very realistic, so, our judges thought that it deserves the 3rd place.

Guido Vrola uploaded 9 models for the Character Challenge. All of them were professionally made and presented. His profile looks really brilliant – like an art gallery. All those nice looking models differ from each other. Variety and quality are probably the two keys for success. And Guido Vrola has both of them. Congratulations for a very professional production.

CARTOOMOTION was versatile as well and brought some very interesting works. You can see one of the most realistic out here – parrots guaranteed him the 2nd place. The other his characters are: a sumo wrestler, a Syrian goat, a Zulu warrior – diverse enough?

Mark Florquin tried to win this challenge with photorealism and human being look-alike characters. He made a great catalogue of 3D fashion women. It’s really different collection if we compare it with other – collections of game heroes and mystic creatures. Congratulations, Mark, simplicity sometimes pays off, and this is one of those times.
