Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce the 17th CG Boost art challenge for all 3D artists wanting to improve their skills and get the chance to win great prizes!


The topic for this challenge is “Samurai”.

Samurai – There are few topics of the far east as fascinating and inspiring to the western audience as the Japanese culture of warfare and their most prominent rank of warriors: the samurai.

Both noble men and fearsome fighters, countless stories and legends have evolved around their lives and fates, from early Japanese histories to modern-day movies and popular culture. Get immersed in the massive creative potential, that still lies within their colorful suits of armor to inspire your next breathtaking artwork, be it a character, place or scene from the world of ancient Japan!

DEADLINE: July 22nd, 2020 at 16:00 CEST!
The winners will be announced one week later on July 29th, 2020.

Don't miss this great opportunity to improve your skills and create a 3d render for your portfolio. Besides that, you have the chance to increase your online exposure and win great prizes, provided by some of the best companies in the 3d industry!

In the spirit of growing together, you can join our active Facebook community of aspiring artists, ask for or give feedback to help each other improve.

What are you waiting for? The only way to grow your skills is by challenging yourself!

Good luck everyone!
