Sketchfab Freeform Challenge: Clear Coat

Back to overview

We’ve just integrated Clear Coat as a new feature and want to see what amazing things you can do with it. Show off your skills and the new feature by creating a model using any software and workflow. Your imagination is the only limit.

  • The model can be static or animated.
  • Give the model a title and a brief (max 50 words) description.
  • Submit only new work, but feel free to submit multiple scenes.
  • Once you’ve created your scene, upload it to Sketchfab, tag it #ClearCoatChallenge.
  • Share what you’re planning to create on the challenge thread in the forum!
  • Submission deadline is Monday, July 30th (23:59 New York time – EDT)

    So, To join to contest:
    I must create concept and model by myself or
    i may take reference created not by me (that i found on artstation for example) and use it as concept for create my model

  • Hi Paris – yes you need to create the 3D model yourself but the inspiration can come from anywhere you like.

    Common sense and respect for other artist’s work / giving credit is always a good place to start.
