Announcing The Character Design Contest Winners!

Announcing The Character Design Contest Winners!

Our Character Design Contest was the most competitive yet and our judges had a very difficult time choosing the winners. To narrow the entries down to even the top 10 finalists proved a daunting task. Special thanks to our judges for taking the time to judge the winners and to our sponsors, Formlabs, Wacom, and ZBrush! Without further ado, here are some of our favourites from the contest and the top three winners. 

Honourable Mentions

The Guardian by markochulev

Markochulev did an excellent job with the design and presentation of The Guardian. His design was printed on the Formlabs Form 2 and finished with a bit of grey primer. 


Al De Capode aka “Le tourteau ninja” by Charles-Victorien Kaing

This character was a personal favorite of mine. Charles’ excellent presentation, full color renders, and assembly instructions made this one of our top contenders. 


NOOT by chris_nix

Chris_nix is a professional character artist and this shows through his NOOT design. He printed it in Formlabs’ Grey V3 resin and included a few excellent full color renders with the design.
