3D model marketplace CGTrader.com has recently announced a hoped to be annual Sci-Fi Challenge constructed to ignite an untamed spark of imagination in professional 3D designers, who take interest in creating futuristic, sci-fi flavored 3D concepts.
Vilnius, Lithuania February 23, 2015
Having caused a considerable stir last year, the 3D modeling contest dedicated to triggering and exploring the themes of alternative universe, parallel planets, time travel and dystopian and utopian worlds strives to offer 3D designers an opportunity to work on imagination-powered projects that require both exceptional skill and creativity.
"When it comes to realizing extraordinary ideas, our experience shows that it always starts with the same question - "what if?". We want our designers to unleash their creative geniuses and come up with never-imagined sci-fi concepts. It's an opportunity to work without a brief and develop your own ideas", said Marius Kalytis, founder and CEO of CGTrader.
The most outstanding sci-fi designs are often based on mind-bending technological inventions, so the fusion of spaceship, character, vehicle, building and gun 3D models promises to devise a complex new world of science fiction. Designers are encouraged to take an original and fresh approach to land some valuable prizes from many sponsors including Allegorithmic, 3D Artist Online, Rayvision, Clara.io, Daz3D and Nextlimit.
The challenge runs until 20th of April, 2015.
