Sketchfab Store Challenge: Original Superhero

Back to overview

This week the Sketchfab Store team challenges you to create an original superhero—pay attention to the uniqueness of your character, their superpowers and characteristics. Your imagination and creativeness will be the key here.

Once you’ve created your character and uploaded it to Sketchfab, tag your model #StoreSuperheroChallenge to enter. We also encourage you to add your entries to your Sketchfab Store, if you are a seller, and to apply to become a seller, if you’re not already.
