Sketchfab Voxel Challenge: My Ideal Planet

Back to overview

Attention voxel artists – the time has come for another Sketchfab Voxel Challenge! This time we want to take a trip into the frontiers of your imagination and see what your Ideal Planet would be. Is it a beautiful green Eden or a city world in the stars? Is it mountain paradise or a twisted alien landscape? A world filled with wonders or an inhospitable magma ocean? What world would you like to visit most?

For this challenge we want see a voxel scene showcasing your Ideal Planet. It can be the whole planet or just a piece of the environment. It can be a simple landscape or feature the inhabitants of that world – the only limit is your imagination!


  • Create an ideal planet or environment scene using voxels.
  • Use any 3D modeling tool that you like (including Minecraft), although using a specialised one will make your life a lot easier!
  • Submit only new work, but feel free to submit multiple scenes.
  • Once you’ve created your scene, upload it to Sketchfab, tag it #VoxelPlanet (and why not throw in #voxels and #voxelart for good measure too?)
  • Share what you’re planning to create on the challenge thread in the forum!
  • Submission deadline is Monday, April 3 (23:59 New York time – EST)



Take this Lego City Utility Shuttle (value $34) and explore the universe to find your ideal planet! On top of that, we’ll add 3 months of Sketchfab PRO (value $45) to your account.
