Contest Overview

Science-fiction spaceman hero Flash Gordon, was created in 1934 by illustrator Alex Raymond and writer Don Moore as a Sunday feature for King Features Syndicate. Intended to compete with the popular comic strip Buck Rogers, the series followed the intergalactic adventures of Flash Gordon, his girlfriend Dale Arden, and the scientist Dr. Hans Zarkov on the alien planet Mongo.

Flash Gordon novels and comics began in 1934 and they have been going ever since. One of the original comic strip even sold for $512,000 🤯

Since then, everything from radio programs, movies, cartoon, sci-fi series and even children’s records have been created due to its huge fan base. It’s your turn to re-imagine this world and bring it to life in this modeling challenge.

Design Brief

It’s now your turn to take a new spin on this franchise with the help of some incredible concept designs created by one of our Rookies. Giuseppe Di Stasio, is a concept artist from Milano, Italy that studied at Syn Studios.

Giuseppe has completely re-imagined the Flash Gordon universe. He has redesigned its characters, the transport and the universe itself. Your task is to choose one of his inspiring concept designs, and then build it as 3D digital model.
