Sketchfab 3D Editor Challenge: Sea Keep

Back to overview

For this challenge, we want you to use just the Sketchfab 3D Editor to make adjustments to the look and feel of Artjoms Horosilovs’ Sea Keep “Lonely Watcher” model. Your entries will be judged on how well you make use of the many features that the 3D Editor has to offer and the overall effect that you create.

Wondering what’s possible with the 3D Editor? Check out our 3D Settings help page to learn more or pick up some clever tips that you might not have known!

UPDATE: Winner – Tower Lost in Space by TonyS (@tonykun)

TL;DR: Download the glTF version of the model above, upload it to your Sketchfab account and use Sketchfab’s 3D Settings to make the model look its best, tag it #SeaKeepChallenge.

Important note: be sure to download the glTF version of Artjoms’ model as it will re-upload perfectly. The FBX version needs some manual adjustments on several texture channels.


  • Give the model a title and briefly describe what settings you chose.
  • Submit only new work, but feel free to submit multiple scenes.
  • Once you’ve uploaded the model to Sketchfab, edit the 3D Settings, and tag it #SeaKeepChallenge.
  • Credit Artjoms Horosilovs for his model in your model description, and add a link back to the original by adding this Markdown code:
