CGTrader’s New Contest: Human Challenge

Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci, CGTrader has launched a new contest: Human Challenge.

They are looking for high-quality, detailed visualizations of male and female bodies that could become a great learning tool used to explore the systems of human body as well as realistic human 3D models that would easily pass the strict scrutiny of video game developers. Human character challenge is dedicated to human anatomy, the shapes and proportions of human body, the intricate details of anatomical structures, systems, muscles and organs. Can you model a realistic face, hands, skeleton or human body? They want to see it.

Your entry could win you a number of very nice prizes.

For all the rules and further information go to:

Call for Content: Blenderart Magazine issue #46

BlenderartWe are ready to start gathering up tutorials, making of articles and images for Issue # 46 of Blenderart Magazine.

The theme for this issue isFANtastic FANart

This is going to be a seriously fun issue for everyone to take part in. We are going to honor and pay homage to our favorite artists by creating an issue full of Fanart.

At some point we all give in to the overwhelming urge to re-create our favorite characters, logos etc. We have no intention of claiming the idea as our own, we are simply practicing our craft, improving our skills and showing our love to those artists whose work inspires our own.

So in this issue we are looking for tutorials or “making of” articles on:

  • Personal Fanart projects that you have done to practice your skills and or for fun
  • A nice short summary of why this project inspired you, what you learned

*warning: lack of submissions could result in an entire issue of strange sculpting experiments, half completed models and a galley filled with random bad sketches by yours truly…. :P …… goes off to start filling sketchbook with hundreds of stick figures, just in case. :P
