The judges have voted and here are the winners of 3D Challenge: Abstract Elements

May 24th, 2018


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:

Asset category winners

Over 500 models competed in the Abstract Elements challenge and these three managed to take the prize! Congratulations!


3rd place goes to UrbanDisplay for the Abstract insect
