Sketchfab Sculpting Challenge: Hair

Back to overview

This week we challenge you to flex your sculpting muscles by adding hair to one of the pre-supplied heads below. Just download the model, choose the head that you want to add hair to, and get to work.

UPDATE: Winner – [HairSculptChallenge] Ame by Chellew

To see what the judges had to say about the winning model, check out the Forum.

A big thanks to Mark Krawiec for the original heads, and Mieke Roth for the retopologized versions.

TL;DR: Download the above model, sculpt hair onto the head of your choice using your preferred tools and workflow, upload the model to Sketchfab and tag it #HairSculptChallenge.


  • Use your favorite software and workflow to sculpt some hair onto one of the provided heads.
  • Stay under 3M polys for head and hair together.
  • Submit only new work, but feel free to submit multiple scenes.
  • Once you’ve created your scene, upload it to Sketchfab, tag it #HairSculptChallenge.
