Prizes for this challenge:


1st place by Iván Batalla

We say: Amazing! Using Sketchfabs features to tell a visually entertaining story and keeping a scene that looks vivid, simple and detailed. The shading is amazing and there is not much that can be improved. Congratulations!

2nd place by 劉奕宏

We say: For what seems to be a simple concept sketch this tells a nice story. Your shapes and details are nicely spaced and the overall composition is very engaging. Congratulations!

3rd place by Raul Fernandes

We say: The action in this scene is very nice! The colors work and nothing breaks the scene. A bit of composition fixing could really enhance the image but the fx of the cannons and water are really nice! Congrats!
