Sketchfab Low Poly Challenge: A Polyphonic Lowmance

Back to overview

Edit: The winner is user TalieTruman‘s “The Not so Helpful ‘Helpers'”! Congrats! Go to the forum topic for more details like the runner ups!

Hello, all low poly artists! Valentine’s Day is coming up and while the barrage of pink and red tchotchkes may infiltrate store fronts around you, it’s also important to take a step back and realize the vast range of ways love and romance can be expressed as opposed to just one day on February the 14th.

While cupids and hearts are also encouraged, show us a low-poly scene of love in your life, whether it’s between you and your significant other, you and your pet(s), you and your family, you and your friends, you and your workstation, a Romantic composer/artist you want to pay homage to… the possibilities are endless!

Get romantic! Think about something you love and use this lovely art style to express it! Or, if this is your first time, maybe this can be your foray into low-poly art! All low-poly art styles and skill levels encouraged! All that’s required is that you get in your art before February 21st and you tag your art as #lowmance to enter.

The restrictions in terms of materials used and the subject matter always bring an outpour of creativity from the awesomely talented Sketchfab community, so we’d love to give something back to you! Here are the rules:

  • You can use any low poly creation tool that you like or want to learn! A lot of them are your “standard” 3D creation tools like Blender, Maya, ZBrush, Photoshop, etc., but if you have any other tools that work for you, you’re welcome to use them.
  • Once you’ve created your scene, upload it to Sketchfab, tag it #lowmance
