Sketchfab Modeling Challenge: VR Sculpture Park

Back to overview

Lots of great cities have sculpture parks – they’re wonderful places to walk around, enjoy the fresh air, and interact with unique, 3-dimensional pieces of art. Now it’s time to develop a Sketchfab VR sculpture park that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your living room, without sunscreen or walking shoes.

The beauty of a VR sculpture park is that you will be able to experiment with things like scale and physics in ways that you might not be able to in reality. Your model will be combined with others into a large park that can be explored using your favorite VR equipment.

TL;DR: Use your favorite modeling software to create a sculpture that looks great in VR, upload it to Sketchfab, and tag it #VRSculptureParkChallenge.

Rules

  • Use any tool you like to model an abstract sculpture that has no more than 10k polys.
  • The model needs to be static, and cannot be animated.
  • Give the sculpture a title and a brief (max 50 words) description.
  • Submit only new work, but feel free to submit multiple scenes.
  • Once you’ve created your scene, upload it to Sketchfab, tag it #VRSculptureParkChallenge.
  • Share what you’re planning to create on the challenge thread in the forum!
  • Submission deadline is Monday, July 2nd (23:59 New York time – EST)

    This is a minor clarification, but “10k polys” means 10k triangles, correct? Not quads?

    • Thomas Flynn says:

      10 thousand quads is OK too. Either way, we recommend trying to be as efficient as possible so that when we combine all the models in one scene that it performs well in webVR.
