Sketchfab Texturing Challenge: Sports Car

Back to overview

Update — the first one to cross the finish line: 

Vrooom! We’re back for another Sketchfab texturing challenge and this time the subject is a souped-up sports car. To get you started, Renafox has created a UV mapped model of a sports car – download it and bling it out any way you want.

Adding a bit of geometry here and there is allowed but be sure to concentrate on the paint job and textures!

TL;DR: texture this Sports Car model using your favourite texturing workflow, upload it to Sketchfab and tag it with #SportsCarTexturingChallenge. Be sure to credit Renafox and link to his model.


  • 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 #SportsCarTexturingChallenge.
  • Credit Renafox for his model in your model description, and add a link back to the original by adding this Markdown code:
Based on "[Sketchfab Texturing Challenge: Sports Car Base - Base](" by [Renafox](, licensed under CC Attribution-ShareAlike.
  • Share what you’re planning to create on the challenge thread in the forum!
  • Submission deadline is Tuesday, November 21 (23:59 New York time – EST)
