Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce that after a very long break for several months, we are now back with our new and improved 3D Art challenge, with the topic "City in the Sky"! ^^

City in the Sky - Why waste your life in the dusty plains of our cities, when there's plenty of space to live in the air above? An old dream of mankind: The City in the Sky! Amidst the clouds, a whole civilization may be thriving, buzzing with life among airships and gliders. Or is it a forgotten civilization, its cloud-covered ruins rediscovered by brave adventurers? What a sight that may be! It's up to you: How would you imagine a fantastic city in the sky?

This challenge is for all 3D artists wanting to improve their skills, have fun and get the chance to win great prizes.

DEADLINE:The challenge ends on Wednesday, July 13th, 2022, at 16:00 CEST! The winners will be announced one week later on July 20th, 2022.

How does it work?

  • You have 3 weeks time (till July 13th, 2022)
  • Create a 3D render that fits the topic
  • You can use any 3D tool of your choice (not only Blender)
  • Post your work-in-progress renders here to get feedback​
  • Get the chance to win some cool prizes
  • Have fun, improve your 3D skills and create art for your portfolio!

​What is new?

To make the challenge more accessible, we now have two categories, the “Training Arena” and the “Pro Arena”. You can enter the "Training Arena" if you're just getting started with 3D art, or join the more competitive "Pro Arena".

As always, in the spirit of growing together, you can join our 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!
