Sketchfab Sculpting Challenge: Digital Pumpkin Carving


Download a 3D scan of a pumpkin and carve away! Wacom is sponsoring $500 in hardware in this Sketchfab Halloween challenge.

Halloween is fast approaching, so it’s time to bring out the pumpkins and carve your Jack-o’-lantern! We’re super excited to have Wacom’s support for this challenge – they’re providing several Intuos tablets as well as a Bamboo Duo stylus pen as prizes!

For this challenge, we’re providing you with a 3D scan of a pumpkin as a starting point. Download it, open it with your favourite sculpting software and start carving and sculpting! While this challenge is focused on sculpting, you’ll get extra points for adding scary lighting and atmosphere.

TL;DR: Download the pumpkin base model, sculpt it any way you like. Publish it on Sketchfab and tag it #PumpkinCarvingChallenge.
