Sketchfab Modeling Challenge: Daft + Punk Universe

Back to overview

Like everyone else, our hearts were broken when we heard that Daft Punk was disbanding. So this month our challenge is a tribute to the innovative nature of Daft Punk and their music. Create something that would fit in their futuristic, electronic, holographic universe, upload it to Sketchfab, and tag it #DaftPunkUniverseChallenge.

  • Use your favorite software and workflow to model a scene reminiscent of Daft Punk’s style.
  • Submit only work uploaded during the contest period, but feel free to submit multiple entries.

  • If you use concept art to create your work, be sure to ask permission from the concept artist, credit them, and link back to their work. We also encourage you to split your prize with them, if you win.
  • Once you’ve created your entry, upload it to Sketchfab and tag it #DaftPunkUniverseChallenge.
