It was with ten years old when my aunt gave me my first video camera. I realised that I love making videos, shortfilms with my friends... Then with 15 years old I started learning on my own VFX. With 17 I knew that I love making 3D models and I became a 3D Artist.

Category Brief

This contest is targeted towards concept artists, illustrators, modelling artists, texture artists and lighting TDs. All other artists are allowed to enter and will be considered fairly based on their entry.

The Brief

Create a creature or animal that you would like to find in the Circus.

The creature/animal could be from future, it could be from the past. It could even be from another planet. The key here is to pay attention to the design and details of your creature. What tricks does your creature perform? Has it been locked up? Has it been well fed? Is it a fierce creature or is it a cute? What features indicate that it truly belongs in the circus?

Judging Criteria

  • The Process - we want to see your process from start to finish. This contest uses the Play by Play project builder which means you can share every little update similar to a forum.
  • Technical & Creative Skills - it doesn’t matter if you are a modeller, a texture artist or lighting TD. The key here is how you showcase your skills.
