All of us have a car that we've dreamed of from an early childhood. Well, at least most of us do! And although the "flying car" concept looks out of question, there will still be many, many designs that we're going to love. But why not make a concept or two ourselves? 3D Modeling is a perfect solution for that.
Keep in mind, this is a vehicle challenge, which means you're free to make cars, motorcycles, tanks, buses, trucks, trains or whatever - just make sure it actually looks like it can do whatever it is vehicles usually do. The concept of future belongs to you here - whether it's an apocalypse-themed, heavily armored Truck, or a glow-in-the-dark motorcycle with three wheels - it counts as an entry - as long as it is original, it works for us.
It will be a Low Poly challenge - so the 50,000 polygon is a limit.
Time to show us what the future will look like!
Below are the models participating in this challenge. Browse through them or submit yours!
There will be 1 winner category for Vehicles from the Future Challenge. Awards will be given for 4 best 3D Models uploaded during the challenge period.
In order to qualify for the prize winnings, you must agree to terms & conditions.
Below is the information about sponsors and the products that are giveaways for the challenge.
MilkShape 3D is a low-polygon modeler, which was initially designed for Half-Life. MilkShape 3D has all basic operations like select, move, rotate, scale, extrude, turn edge, subdivide, just to mention a few. MilkShape 3D also allows low-level editing with the vertex and face tool. Standard and extended primitives like spheres, boxes, cylinders, etc. are available too.
MilkShape 3D is a skeletal animator. This allows to export to morph target animation like the ones in the Quake model formats or to export to skeletal animations like Half-Life, Genesis3d, Unreal, etc.
Textures.com is a website that offers digital pictures of all sorts of materials, including fabrics, wood, metal, bricks, plastic, and many more. These images are called textures and can be used for graphic design, visual effects, in computer games and any other situation where you need a nice pattern or background image.
SolidRocks fully automates the complex setup of V-Ray. Professional Rendering in V-Ray never was easier.
PixPlant is a smart texturing app with the best tools to quickly transform a photo into seamless repeating textures and 3D maps. PixPlant includes a smart texturing engine and 3D map editors.
ShaderMap™ creates and converts rendering textures to different formats. It can also bake maps from 3D models. Easily tweak settings and preview changes in real-time.
Visual Designer 3D is an image rendering tool (3D Graphic Software) that has been designed exclusively to be ergonomic and workflow-friendly. If you ever get tired of managing multiple tools and complex parameters, you can rest assured that with Visual Designer 3D, you get everything you need in a complete 3D Graphic software package.
Cheetah3D is a powerful and easy to learn 3D modeling, rendering and animation application which was developed from the ground up for Mac OS X. So jump right into the world of computer generated imaging, create 3D artwork for your next iPhone game or make your first animated character.
iCube R&D Group brings together leading Russian 3D visualisation companies to develop and provide cutting edge and affordable tools for 3D visualisation industry. VrayPattern is a plug-in for 3dsmax and V-Ray. VRayPattern allows you periodically multiply geometry without extra memory consumption. As a sample you can use any tiled geometry (or whose with unobtrusive joints). The plug-in best used where huge amount of geometries required, but without great accuracy.
Exlevel is delighted to offer GrowFX is a plant modeling and animation system for Autodesk 3ds Max. GrowFX lets you create broadleaf trees, conifers, palm trees, flowers, ivy and many other vegetational compositions. Its unique model building tools will help you create creeping plants, entwining scene objects, and shearing plants of any shape. Plants may bend around different objects.
The judging of the challenge is supervised by CGTrader staff. Winners will be chosen following the requirements below:
Please go through these questions before contacting us
You need to upload files and images of your 3D design in order to participate in the challenge.
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.
There are General, Editorial and Custom licenses for you to choose under which you want to operate. Individuals or companies that bought your model can't use it for commercial purposes if it hasn't been changed. So no worries - you won't lose the copyright.
Design a great looking 3D model for the challenge and upload it to CGTrader.
No. Only 3D models uploaded in the period from the 17th of November, 2016 to the 23rd of January, 2017 will be treated as valid entries.
Yes, absolutely. Sharing artwork is always appreciated in the community.
Yes. There are no restrictions on publishing and selling your models elsewhere.
No. But do not forget that the prices are always judged by the customers.
No. We are tracking every deleted and uploaded model, so it is useless to drive-through our requirements of the challenge.
