Low Poly Challenge - Vehicles From The Future

Low Poly Challenge - Vehicles From The Future

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!

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.

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 lose 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 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.


How can I participate in the challenge?

Design a great looking 3D model for the challenge 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 17th of November, 2016 to the 23rd of January, 2017 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.
