Human Challenge

Human Challenge

Leonardo da Vinci, the Italian Renaissance genius, has been dead for almost 500 years, but his works continue to captivate the modern day researchers and scientists. He’s best remembered for his masterpieces such as the Mona Lisa or the Last Supper, but Leonardo da Vinci is also one of the greatest anatomists of all times. During his lifetime, the great painter made thousands of notes and drawings of human body; clinical anatomists believe that his works can still help us understand the mechanics of human body, since they were hundreds of years ahead of its time.

So why are we suddenly so interested in the Renaissance legend? Easy. We are hoping to unearth future artists, who work with slightly different drawing tools, like 3D modeling software, but will make a similar impact on art and mankind alike. Da Vinci is probably the best inspirational source you could find.

We’re after high-quality, detailed visualizations of man and woman bodies that could become a great learning tool used to explore the systems of human body as well as realistic human 3D models that would easily pass the strict scrutiny of video game developers. Human character model challenge is dedicated to human anatomy, the shapes and proportions of human body, the intricate details of anatomical structures, systems, muscles and organs. Can you master a realistic face, hands, skeleton or human model? We want to see it.

Show us what you’ve got.

                        Frequently Asked Questions

                        Please go through these questions before contacting us

                        Do I need to upload files or only images of my 3D design?

                        You need to upload files and images of your 3D design in order to participate in the challenge.


                        I don't want to put my entry model for sale. Do you have any suggestions?

                        Does earning money from your digital files sounds like a bad idea? Just try to put higher price on it, let's say 300 USD.


                        I don't want to loose copyrights on my model after it is sold.

                        There are General, Editorial and Custom licenses for you to choose under which you want to operate. Individuals or companies which bought your model can't use it for commercial purposes if it hasn't been changed. So no worries - you won't loose the copyright.


                        How can I participate in the challenge?

                        Design awesome 3D model related to human characters and upload it to CGTrader.


                        What if I put the required tag on my already published 3D model on CGTrader - do you treat it as a valid entry?

                        No. Only 3D models uploaded in the period from the 22nd of September to the 17th of November 2014 will be treated as valid entries.


                        Do free 3D models participate in the challenge?

                        Yes, absolutely. Sharing artwork is always appreciated in the community.


                        Can I enter with 3D models which participated in other challenges elsewhere?

                        Yes. There are no restrictions on publishing and selling your models elsewhere.


                        Do price tags play any importance when entries are being judged?

                        No. But do not forget that the prices are always judged by the customers.


                        I want to participate in the challenge so I am going to delete my already uploaded models and upload them again to meet the "publishing period" requirement. Can I do that?

                        No. We are tracking every deleted and uploaded model, so it is useless to drive-through our requirements of the challenge.

                        Help
