Results Are In: Winners of 3D Model Competition
For a few days already we have been receiving emails from you. The question was: "Sooo, who are the winners of a competition?". We told to wait a bit. And we were answered that there are some of you, who cannot. So, finally we stopped discussing...
Challenge was accepted. And winners are selected!
But wait, wait a little bit more. Yes, I know that you can scroll down, but wait. Enjoy that pleasant feeling before you find the results out. There is something to be said.
We have to admit that this 3D Model Competition was extremely exciting. The entire month your 3D models were flowing to our marketplace shelves as a stirring mountain spring. We are more than happy because of that
Your active participation has proved two things: a) Competition's prizes are gorgeously must-have; b) Your imagination is boundless.
The jury had a big task to find out which three models out of the four-digit collection are the very best ones. Aircrafts, UFO flying saucers, sci-fi characters, parts of human body, animals, plants, interiors and exteriors, architectural solutions, food, accessories, table games, robots, transformers, a lot of cars, all the types of vehicles, electronic appliances, furniture and household, scientific and industrial objects - how not to lose yourself in this variety? Damn, we did it. We got the winners.
The Best 3D Model
Iron Baby is a model made by 3D designer Strob. He found a way to exaggerate the whole thing of "Iron Man". He designed a small copy of it and called it "Iron Baby". A video was created and shared on Youtube and got 18 million views. The goal was to rival the work done for the movie Iron Man. This expansion pack includes not only this model, but also reveals the whole process of how Iron Baby video was created. Amazing. Concept, accomplishment, details, talent - what does the winner need more?
Strob will receive the breath-taking prizes: Cinema 4D Visualize or Broadcast software with Bodypaint from Maxon, Stash subscription for 1 year, RenderPoints Silver package by Ultra Render, training DVD download of choice by Eat3D, 200 USD in cash and 200 USD in CGTrader activation credits, a book The Art of Gears of War by Ballistic.
Congrats! We have to admit that we are a bit jealous. I guess, actually everyone is.
No one could ever resist to old fashioned Ford LTD 1971 model. 3D designer arkviz has bribed a jury with an American-dream like golden shining of a car. It possesses experienced reflections, amazing lighting. L.A. in the background and a high level of realism. The interior of the car is also extremely detailed and nostalgic. Never stop riding on!
The model of American football player by well-known author codethislab. The position planted by the character is astonishing. Precise anatomical knowledge, interesting perspectives of the character could not slip through the jury eyes. And they did not.
For a good ride and beautiful game of American football both of the authors are will be given impressive awards: training DVD downloads of choice by Eat3D, Stash subscription for 6 months, RenderPoints Standard Package by UltraRender and 100 USD in CGTrader activation credits.
Best 3D Model Portfolio
In this competition our loyal seller humster3d surpassed everyone. The studio has uploaded 206 models. Of course, it was cars mainly, possesing a particular style of a design. All of these models are highly professional, precise and eye-catching. As humster3d said in the begining of February: "We will try harder this month". And definitely they did. Congratulations! We hope they will never run out of ideas for car design.
The winner of the Best 3D Model Portfolio is showered in prizes: Forest Pack Pro or RailClone Pro 1 year license by Itoo Software, Stash subscription for 1 year, training DVD download of choice by Eat3D, RenderPoints Silver package by UltraRender, a book EXPOSE 10 by Ballistic, 300 USD in cash and 300 USD in CGTrader activation credits.
3D designer fabelar has proven his passion for the design once again. During a competition month he uploaded almost half of his entire collection on CGTrader. Fabelar is open for the experiments: his 3D models vary from the cars to the food, faces, space objects, electronical appliances. Is here anything he could not design?
The challenge has brought to us a few new and talented 3D designers. One of them is RTE. We found these 3D models exceptional and noticeable: a red futuristic piano, transparent saxophone, superb modern architecture and lot of more. RTE shared with us a huge amount of photorealistic, highly detailed, thorough, inventive and extremely creative 3D models.
These two runners-up represented high-quality portfolios, so these are the prizes for their passion: training DVD downloads of choice by Eat3D, Stash subscriptions for 6 months, RenderPoints Standard Packages by UltraRender, 200 USD in CGTrader activation credits.
So here it is. Hey, winners and runners-up tell us, what was the feeling?
Anyway, all this pulsing passion, shown by each of you, means that 3D design is your obsession if not a trade and that you are a big part of our creative family.
Thanks to everyone of you. There are new big challenges coming. Stay tuned!
