Sketchfab October Challenge: 3D Inktober® 2019

Back to overview

You may have seen that it’s time for Inktober® 2019. We love all the inked 2D art from the contest, so we are taking on Inktober® and challenging you to make a daily  black and white doodle in 3D.

Just follow along with the Inktober® 2019 calendar and create a new 3D model in black-and-white style every day for the month of October. Upload your models to Sketchfab and tag them with #3DInktober2019 and the daily tag.

At the end of the month we will raffle off three prizes; everybody who created models for all 31 of the topics will be entered into the raffle. We’ll also offer a fourth prize: Inktober® founder Jake Parker will select his favorite model from the challenge entries.

To stay up-to-date on topics, share your daily creations, and give and get feedback on models, head over to the Forum. And to see what everybody is creating, check out the tag gallery.


  • Use any tool and workflow you like to create your models.
  • The models can be static or animated.
  • Give your models titles and brief (max 50 words) descriptions.
  • Submit only new work (make your models downloadable if you don’t have enough upload credits).
  • Once you’ve created your models, upload them to Sketchfab, find the tag for that day’s topic and add it to your model.
  • Post your model on the daily Forum topic to help inspire other participants.
  • Use the #3DInktober2019 hashtag if you want to share your entries on social media.
  • All 31 submissions must be complete by November 1st, 2019 in order to be eligible for the raffle drawing (23:59 New York time – EDT)


If you complete all 31 of the topics by November 1, you will be entered into a raffle to win one of three:

  • $100 Amazon vouchers
  • 1 year of Sketchfab PRO
  • Inktober® 2019 T-shirts

Bonus prize for a fourth lucky winner! Jake Parker, the founder of Inktober®, will select his favorite model from the challenge entries. The winner of this prize will also receive a $100 Amazon voucher, 3 months of Sketchfab PRO, and an Inktober® 2019 T-shirt.
