Sketchfab Hand Painting Challenge: Tea Party

Back to overview

It’s time for tea! For this week’s 3D challenge we want you to create your own hand painted tea party scene. This might be a single teapot, tea cup or cake, all the way up to an entire table full of crockery and treats. Have some fun thinking about where your tea party is taking place – the moon? A fantasy forest? – and whom the refreshing repast might be for – a queen? a vagabond?

UPDATE – Winner: Marrakesh Tea Party by natapon
