Sketchfab Sculpting Challenge: Aliens

Back to overview

We’re going into outer space this month! (Or, well, maybe they’re already among us) For our new sculpting challenge, we’re exploring alien life. Are they really all that scary looking? What does an alien goofball look like, or an alien doing a boring job? (Personally, I’d love to know where all those cows go!)


TL;DR: Sculpt an alien using your favourite sculpting tool, upload it to Sketchfab and tag it with #AlienChallenge2017.


  • Sculpt an alien using your favourite sculpting tool.
  • Submit only new work, but feel free to submit multiple scenes.
  • Once you’ve created your scene, upload it to Sketchfab, tag it #AlienChallenge2017.
  • Share what you’re planning to create on the challenge thread in the forum!
  • Submission deadline is Monday, July 17 (23:59 New York time – EST)



We figure any sculpting artist could use a nice tablet to work with, so we’re giving away a Wacom Intuos Draw Tablet (or similarly priced product from Amazon). The winner will of course also receive 3 months of Sketchfab PRO as well as a staff pick!
