Sketchfab Sculpting Challenge: Aliens


I just launched a new sculpting challenge over on Sketchfab.

We’re going into outer space this month! (Or, well, maybe they’re already among us) For our new sculpting challenge, we’re exploring alien life. Are they really all that scary looking? What does an alien goofball look like, or an alien doing a boring job? (Personally, I’d love to know where all those cows go!)

TL;DR: Sculpt an alien using your favourite sculpting tool, upload it to Sketchfab and tag it with #AlienChallenge2017.

Prizes include a Wacom Intuos tablet.

    We figure any sculpting artist could use a nice tablet to work with, so we’re giving away a Wacom Intuos Draw Tablet (or similarly priced product from Amazon).

    Wouldn't most people joining a sculpting competition already have a tablet of some sort?

    Unless someone's out there sculpting with a mouse, and, in that case, they deserve the prize, just on the feat alone! lol

    But it's good that the prize also extends to "or similarly priced product from Amazon."
