Sketchfab Freeform Challenge: Haunted House

Back to overview

What makes a haunted house spooky? Is it its broken shutters and unkempt yard? Or maybe the eerie noises? Or maybe the ghosts? Whatever it is, we’d like to see your version of it. We had a haunted house challenge back in 2015, but much has changed since then and you have a larger world of 3D possibilities at your fingertips. So fire up your rusty chainsaw and start carving out your place in Sketchfab’s creepy Halloween neighborhood.

UPDATE: Winner – Over the Garden Wall – Whispers by @FatOfTheLand

TL;DR: Use whatever 3D method you prefer to create a model of a haunted house. Upload it to Sketchfab and tag it #Haunted2018Challenge.


  • Use any tool you like to create a 3D haunted house.
  • The model can be static or animated.
  • Bonus points given for annotations and sound.
  • 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 #Haunted2018Challenge.
  • Share what you’re planning to create on the challenge thread in the forum!
  • If you have won a weekly challenge in the past 3 months, you are ineligible to win this challenge. We still encourage you to test your skills and participate!
  • Submission deadline is Monday, October 15th (23:59 New York time – EDT)



  • The winner receives a $100 Amazon gift card (or equivalent if you don’t have access to Amazon), and of course we’ll add three months of Sketchfab PRO to your account.

    Can we remix some of the assets used in the house? I wanted to animate some monsters but I wont have time to make everyone.
