Sketchfab Sculpting Challenge: Battle Axe

Back to overview

Hello Sculptors, it’s time for another round of our new 3D sculpting challenge! This time, we’re moving away from characters and creatures and focus on a weapon instead – and no weapon seems to be more popular on Sketchfab than the good old battle axe!

So pick up your favourite sculpting app and enter to win a Wacom Intuos tablet.

Read on for the full rules, but the TL;DR version is: sculpt any ‘battle axe’ model, upload to Sketchfab and tag with #BattleAxeChallenge to enter.

Update: the winner is in!


  • You can use any 3D sculpting tool that you like. If you’re new to sculpting, take a look at free tools like Sculptris, Blender or our own Sculptfab.
  • Create a battle axe of any era or genre.
  • Once you’ve created your 3D model, upload it to Sketchfab and tag it #BattleAxeChallenge.
  • Share what you’re planning to create on the challenge thread in the forum – for extra fun you can collaborate with other participants and create pieces that work well together!
  • Submit new work only, but feel free to submit multiple entries.
  • Texturing is allowed, but all entries will be judged on their sculpting qualities only.
  • Submission deadline is Monday, May 1 (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. The winner will of course also receive 3 months of Sketchfab PRO as well as a staff pick!
