So who are the best ones? We have the winners of CGTrader Awards 2017

“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.
