Weekend Mini-Contest Winners


Our weekend cube modeling challenge was a blast! Over 35 readers accepted the challenge (use only 10 non-overlapping cubes) and readers voted for the best ones. At the time of writing, Davide Nuzzi's 'Lovegift' was the winner with a total of 7 votes. Read on for some other cool works (mostly based on the number of votes, and a little on my personal preference), or check out the contest post to see all the submissions.

I hope everyone enjoyed it - should I do this again?

antOons: 'homerun'

MartianR: '300...'

Jerel Reeves: 'spilled milk'

MartianR: 'Basic Instinct...'

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. It was a lot of fun to play with as a challenge. Maybe another idea might be to set an animation challenge - only 10 blocks (+ plane) on screen at any one time x say just 20-30 seconds duration

  2. chromemonkey on

    This shows just how far off my judgement is! When I saw the ten-blocks version of "Basic Instinct" I was so certain that was going to be the far and away winner. I do like that "lovegift" won though.
    I'm also now certain that my own 'forced perspective lines' entry would have tanked, despite being technically clever it had no 'story' to hook people with.
