Sketchfab Low-Poly Challenge: Animals and their brood

Back to overview

You probably see families everywhere all the time, but what about animals and their children?  In this month’s low poly challenge, we want you to be inspired more by what you see on Animal Planet as opposed to the other TV channels. In this challenge, we have the honor of having Studio Ochi inspire us, judge, and even give away an asset! 

TL;DR: Model an animal and its children in the simplistic, angular lowpoly of the Art Credit, under 5k faces, tag #AnimalFamilyChallenge.
