Pilgway talk about the ethics in 3D and hint at a new major release of 3D-Coat in the next 12 months

For more than a decade, the team at Pilgway have been working on 3D-Coat. The company has become a strong partner of CGTrader, supporting 3D design challenges and other initiatives, the most recent one being our 3D Character: Female challenge, which invited designers to submit non-sexualized models of realistic and fantasy characters. We had the chance to talk to Andrew Shpagin and Stanislav Chernyshuk about their experience in 3D and the role ethics play in their professional lives.

Have you joined the Character: Female challenge yet?

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!
