Weekly CG Challenge #108: "Steampunk Device"

Background artwork by Lautaro Iglesias

Weekly CG Challenge #108 “Steampunk Device” has ended!

We received 55 accepted submissions. Congrats to the three winners Lautaro Iglesias, Juan Carlos Montes and Patrick Piranha. See the winners and all entries below.

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

Topic Description

Steampunk Device – Why does Steampunk keep fascinating artists all over the world? Is it the golden bling bling world of yesteryear? Mahogany and brass? I think it is the possibility to experience the wonders of modern culture and technology in a new way, just as it was newly invented, bringing back the original magic and fascination. Keep this in mind when designing your own individual device of awesomeness, be it a steam-driven headphone or a sparkling time-machine.



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

Prizes for this challenge:


1st place by Lautaro Iglesias

Speed! Action! Competition! This explosive render by Lautaro Iglesias has all the right stuff. Excellent composition and color, beautiful modeling and dramatic lighting all working together to deliver a killer artwork. Great work all round!

2nd place by Juan Carlos Montes

Ah Suzanne! The iconic Blender mascot has been reimagined and re-rendered in countless ways by blenderheads all over the world, but rarely do we see such an imaginative and well executed interpretation. Great work by Juan Carlos Montes!

3rd place by Patrick Piranha

Not only is this entry an excellent example of brilliant shading, it also features a beautiful mechanical animation that actually looks believable, which is a bonus. Great work!
