Honourable Mentions


Levyathan is a powerful inter-dimensional creature from the sea that’s always accompanied by an Octopus protector. This was one of the most creative contest entries and a favourite of the Pinshape team! 

Avatar – Warrior Artist by Samantha Bean 

Samantha Bean did a great job with the ideation and creation of her character and encapsulates it well with the quote “The pen is mightier than the sword – especially when the pen is gigantic and thrown like a javelin”. 

Imaginary World by Vincius Villela 

Loki is a cybernetic avatar who with his sidekick Flick, searches the horizon for new adventures. Vincius designed this in multiple components and did a great job printing it on the Formlabs Form 2.
