Sketchfab Hand Painting Challenge: Summer Cottage

Back to overview

It’s warming up outside, the flowers are blooming, and our cozy winter chalet is now a vibrant summer cottage!

For this challenge you’ll be using the UV mapped model created by Sketchfab Masters CurlsCurly and dark-minaz for the winter Hand Painting Challenge. It’s ready to go – all you have to do is download it and and paint it up in any style you like (making sure you credit CurlsCurly, as per the Rules).

Update: Winner – Summer Hand Painting Challenge: Summer Cottage by madmos

One significant difference for this challenge is that you may make changes to the model, but you must remain within the same poly budget: 514 faces.

TL;DR: Download the 3D model below, hand paint summer-y textures using your favourite painting app, upload the results to Sketchfab tagging it with #HandpaintedSummerScene and crediting CurlsCurly for the original model.


  • You can use any painting application that you want for this.
  • Submit only new work, but feel free to submit multiple scenes.
  • Once you’ve created your scene, upload it to Sketchfab and tag it #HandpaintedSummerScene.
  • Hand painted textures only! This means creating the textures from scratch using Photoshop or any painting software instead of images.
  • You may edit the original model geometry, but must remain within the same poly count: 514 faces.
  • Credit CurlsCurly for her model in your model description, and include a link back to the original by adding this Markdown code:
    Based on "[Cottage UV](" by [Curlscurly](, licensed under CC Attribution-ShareAlike.
  • Share what you’re planning to create and ‘work in progress’ on the challenge thread in the forum!
  • Submission deadline is Monday, June 4 (23:59 New York time – EST).
