I’m Gabriel, but some of you might know me as Elbriga. I’m a Parisian graphic artist who’s very passionate about voxels. I discovered Sketchfab a while ago and it’s really the best tool to share and discover 3D art with such an amazing community of creators! I’m also very proud to be part of the Sketchfab masters program.
What is Weekly Voxels?
Weekly voxels is a group for sharing voxels creations weekly, around a theme voted by everyone. At the end of each week the most liked artwork gets to be the banner for the group. You can join in on the fun with Facebook or Twitter.
Recently, Michael, who started Weekly Voxels, offered for me to become the primary moderator of the group, which I’m super excited about! I’ve been following the group and the voxel community for a while and it’s a real honor and pleasure to be part of it. There have been so many awesome entries and I can’t wait to see a ton more being made ;).
A few of my favorite entries:
As mentioned in his post, Michael will still be around to help guide the project as a mentor, I don’t know how we’d do it without him :).
Since I’m taking over… There’ll be a few changes to be made! *evil laugh*
- Actually, nothing evil, just some improvements:
The schedule will be changed to give more time to creation, and accelerate the voting process: On mondays, the winner of the previous week will be announced, and you’ll be invited to give theme ideas in the comments. Then, the theme for next week will then be chosen, leaving you till next Monday to create.
- We’ll create collections of everyone’s amazing work, so tag your models with “weeklyvoxels-week##” and “voxel“.
How do I participate?
If you don’t know how to make voxels yet, don’t worry, it’s easy. There are a few things to get started:
- How to publish from MagicaVoxel to Sketchfab
- A general tutorial covering making voxels in MagicaVoxel, and more advanced work in Blender.
Let me know what you think in the comments below. I’ll try to be as available as possible for questions, suggestions, or if you just need help: really don’t hesitate to come and chat 😀
