Sketchfab Low Poly Challenge: Isometric Room

Back to overview

Recently we’ve fallen in love with ‘isometric’ scenes – highly stylised models, projected at a 45 degree angle with (almost) no perspective. ‘Rooms in a cube’ have drawn our attention in particular, like teenage bedrooms with awesome retro objects, a version of your actual living room etc.

Update: Winner: World 1-1 by roguenoodle

2nd place: Cartoon Isometric Room by BlackSpire

3rd place: Japanese penny candy store “dagashiya” by akanei

4th place:: Scientist’s Study by Jellepostma

For this challenge, any type of room will do as long as it stays low poly. Let’s say keep it under 15k triangles – which is not super low but it will at least allow you to add some nice details.

TL:DR; design an isometric, low poly room and publish it on Sketchfab with the #IsometricRoomChallenge tag.

Rules

  • Design an isometric, low poly room using your favourite software. Set the camera POV to < 10 degrees for the best effect. Read more about isometric graphics on Wikipedia.

  • Submit only new work, but feel free to submit multiple scenes.
  • Once you’ve created your scene, upload it to Sketchfab, tag it #IsometricRoomChallenge.
  • Share what you’re planning to create on the challenge thread in the forum!
  • Submission deadline is Monday, September 25 (23:59 New York time – EST)
