Sketchfab Progressive Challenge, Round 2 REBOOT: Mythological Creature

Back to overview
We decided to restart this challenge and make it easier to enter: just download the retopologized model to get started!

Welcome to the Rebooted Round 2 of our first Progressive Challenge, a new type of challenge that draws on the many skills of our community members to take a model from idea to completion in four neat steps.

We learned the hard way that the community is not fond of retopologizing (understatement?). This time around, we would like you to download the already retopologized model by toomanydemons, and texture it. (Feel free to download the hi-res version if you want to do your own normal bakes etc.)

Round 1: Sculpting

Winner: Arachne, Weaver of the Gods by toomanydemons

Round 2: Baking and Texturing

  • Download the retopologized winning model from Round 1.
  • Texture the model using your preferred tools and workflow.
  • Upload your textured model (<50MB total for model + textures) to Sketchfab and tag it #MythCreature-Texture no later than Friday March 29 (23:59 EST)
  • Only light with one of the basic HDRIs
  • No post processing effects
  • No dynamic lights
  • Use any material settings you like
  • Credit toomanydemons for his model in your model description, and add a link back to the original by adding this Markdown code:
    Based on "[Arachne, Weaver of the Gods](https://sketchfab.com/3d-models/arachne-weaver-of-the-gods-7f8c248a52744e47b08900659e59a413)" by [toomanydemons](https://sketchfab.com/toomanydemons), licensed under CC Attribution.
  • A winner will be chosen by the judges for Round 2, and that winning entry will be the subject of Round 3.

Round 3: Rigging and Animation

Winning entry from Round 2 is the starting point for Round 3. Details announced April 1, 2019

Round 4: Lighting and 3D Editor

Winning entry from Round 3 is the starting point for Round 4. Details announced April 17, 2019

You are welcome to participate in as many rounds of the contest as you want, and prizes will be awarded to the winner of each round.

TL;DR: Download the retopologized winning entry from the last round, bake and texture it using your preferred tools and workflow, upload your model to Sketchfab, and tag it #MythCreature-Texture.

    Stupid question – if the untextured version was re-released TODAY, and the deadline for submissions was two days ago, what is the updated submission date?!
