Weekly CG Challenge #118: "Isometric"

Background artwork by Ariel Tissler

Weekly CG Challenge #118 “Isometric” has ended!

We received 49 accepted submissions. Congrats to the three winners Ariel Tissler, Gaël Thébault and Mateusz Szymoński. See the winners and all entries below.

Please note: Concerning the prizes, we will contact you in the next two weeks.

Topic Description
Isometric – Usually we define the topic thematically, so this time we thought of something different: Anything is possible, as long as it’s rendered as an orthographic projection (you can choose the isometric projection, but also any other orthographic projection you like). Orthographic means, no perspective distortion. This offers many possibilities for the artist, as it allows the viewer to gain a good overview of a detailed scene or show off a model in a very quirky and game-like way. So go ahead and create some isometric awesomeness!



We pick three winners for each challenge. The winners will be announced a few hours after the challenge has ended. The prizes will be distributed like this:

The 1st winner can choose 7 prizes of the list below.

The 2nd winner can choose 6 of the prizes the 1st winner does not choose, from the list below.

The 3rd winner can choose 5 of the remaining prizes, from the list below.


Prizes for this challenge:


1st place by Ariel Tissler

This is a really engaging animation, and keeps out interest throughout: the transition from day to night and the unexpected change of focus to the train adds another dimension to it.

2nd place by Gaël Thébault

We really enjoyed the narrative elements and detail in this piece (like the train and satellite). It’s a very original concept executed well, with lots to look at and explore.

3rd place by Mateusz Szymoński

Whilst relatively simple, this entry has a really unified style, and an interesting narrative (the sign post is a nice touch). We also like the colour and composition choices made here.
