Environment art contest – ready for a Challenge?
Art competition Want to win a Wacom Cintiq Pro 16, a subscription to ImagineFX, $1,500 in cash and more? Then here’s a contest that will rock your WORLDS!
Created by Cubebrush, an online marketplace for digital art resources, the WORLDS Challenge is open to both 2D and 3D artists, and follows on from the previous year’s ART WAR challenge, which centred around the partial destruction of the planet.
This year’s contest requires you to imagine and depict a new fantasy or sci-fi world (you have to pick one or the other) that’s been built on top of the old world’s ruins.
Excitingly, your work will appear in front of a stellar line-up of 12 judges who will be familiar to many ImagineFX readers: Raphael Lacoste, Clinton Crumpler, Bram Eulaers, Atey Ghailan, Lynette Clee, Peter Lee, Joe Peterson, Martin Holmberg, John J Park, Fausto De Martini, Mathias Verhasselt and Jana Schirmer.
As well as the Wacom Cintiq, ImagineFX subscription and cash, the first-prize bundle will also include some great software: ZBrush 4R8, Quixel SUITE 2, Marmoset Toolbag 3 and Marmoset Hexels. “We had such a great response to ART WAR last year that we had to bring the competition back,” says Cubebrush’s Sarah
Loughry. “It’s a great way for us to get the artist community to come together, do something fun and exciting, and share their processes.”
The deadline for entries is 17 September, and details can be found at http://ifxm.ag/chall-cubebrush. Information on the next challenge, Sarah adds, will probably be revealed around December time.
Competition judge Raphael Lacoste knows a thing or two about building worlds.
Artist Jana Schirmer is just one of the many amazing judges for this competition.
You’ll get your art under the watchful eye of Riot Games’ concept artist Atey Ghailan.
