Sketchfab Texturing Challenge: Shoes!

Back to overview

This week we’re turning our attention to fashion! Grab this pair of sneakers by kenprol and texture your heart out. Adding a bit of geometry here and there is allowed but be sure to concentrate on the paint job and textures!

We’ve teamed up with Allegorithmic who are providing a full year of Substance Indie and a bag of Substance swag (total value of $275) for TWO lucky winners!

Update: the winners are in!

You can download the original files from the model above in a variety of file formats (Blender, Max, FBX and OBJ).

TL;DR: Texture these shoes using your favourite texturing workflow, upload it to Sketchfab and tag it with #ShoesTexturingChallenge. Be sure to credit kenprol and link to his model.

Rules

  • If you need to update the UV mapping, that’s ok.
  • Changing scenery, adding props and extra geometry is allowed but remember:
    you will be judged primarily on your texturing skills.
  • Submit only new work, but feel free to submit multiple scenes.
  • Once you’ve created your scene, upload it to Sketchfab, tag it #ShoesTexturingChallenge.
  • Credit kenprol for his model in your model description, and add a link back to the original by adding this Markdown code:
