The old joke is that the first render every new 3D artist makes is a chromecgsphere contest sphere on a checker plane. How would you like to take that to the next level and create the most captivating and visually appealing sphere render? How about sharing it with a few hundred others? CGsphere was created with exactly that purpose!

To participate use Blender to create your version of the sphere, just make sure to follow the rules, and to be creative.

To get started download the Blender file from the CGsphere project page. Then create something spectacular, register on CGsphere and upload it!

Take a look at two made by Matt (ie. broken@BA): sphere one and sphere two.

And a sphere by RobertT.

Share yours with us here and at the Blenderartists thread.


  1. Wow, there's real Max/Lightwave lovefest going on over there. While there's no surprise about the number of Max entries, I am surprised by the number of Lighwave entries. I thought it was a Maya world these days. Heh heh.

    Pretty much everything there is great, I love it all. Great stuff from everywhere.

  2. Wow, what a great display of creativity! Such a simple concept, but so many of those submissions are so clever, regardless of what they used to make them.

    Thanks for the heads up, really enjoyed looking through them and will probably keep visiting the CG Sphere page from time to time.

  3. The basic concept of that CGsphere - just simple - but great!
    And DIGIST "alltogether" was a pleasure to visit and look around.
    Robert T´s entry - i like it, he is a real artist!!! I like his work.
    Great to see so much creativity.....
