Prizes for this challenge:


1st place by Слава Сон

This piece by Слава Сон is well deserving of the top spot! Such an interesting scene in many ways, and the multiple “mini-stories” with subtle Orwell references playing out across the frame make for a very engaging and intriguing render. Excellent!

2nd place by Iván Batalla

This great Sketchfab scene by Iván Batalla is quite mind-blowing, and the level of effort that has gone into this is inspiring to say the least. We love the layout and modeling work especially, but the texturing and shading is also top-notch. Great stuff!

3rd place by Clayton Sjoerdsma

A very deserving 3rd place by Clayton Sjoerdsma. The texturing, shading and modeling work is excellent on this render, and the idea behind it is quite unique. Composition wise it’s also very pleasing. Keep it up!
