Winners

On behalf of the sponsors and judges, The Rookies would like to congratulate the following category winners.

Winner

William Jaravaza

wrjaravaza

Zimbabwe | University of Hertfordshire

Mainly films I grew up watching was the main inspiration but also I think it was something I always had an interest in, the curiosity of breaking things apart figuring out how it all works and piecing them together. I had initially thought this interest was more engineering oriented as was my studies. But fell into Blender then eventually Maya and Zbrush and deeper my exploration went.

People's Choice

Everaldo Cavalcante

Brazil

When I was on college of Graphic Design, on the second term I just realize that I'm not a Graphic Designer. Then I start to find a way to study and get better on my 3D art. It's really difficulty here on Brazil.
