The judges have voted and here are the winners of 3D Challenge: Abstract Elements
The 3D Challenge: Abstract Elements gave everyone a task that was both complex and easy. Now, after long deliberation, the votes are finally in, and it's time to announce the winners!
We were looking for high quality, realistic models of various shapes and forms found in nature, graphic design or thought-of by people. We asked designers to put their imagination to work and show us how stunning and interesting 3D can be even when working on simpler objects!
Without further ado, here are the best abstractionists at CGTrader:
