🦖 New CG Boost Challenge: Urban Monsters

Published 27 days ago • 1 min read


Hey Reader,

Zach here,

I’m excited to welcome you to our new Urban Monster 3D Sculpting challenge.

Starting today, Thursday 20th of March, you have five weeks to sculpt a monster from the concrete jungle and submit video cinematic shots showcasing the full creature and a few closeups.

Watch the announcement video below, for all the details.

You can go wild with your sculpture ideas:

  • Cute hardworking monsters taking care of the city
  • Quirky inhabitants
  • Giant skyscraper high behemoths
  • Creepy creatures living in the city shadows
  • Anything urban and monster themed...

The main focus lies on creating a nicely sculpted static monster, presented with cinematic lighting and camera motion. Materials, Textures and environments are optional.

Once the challenge is complete, we’ll compile the best and most-unique sculptures into an exciting Urban Monsters montage video, which we’ll publish on the CG Boost YouTube channel.

Challenge deadline is April 24th at 16:00 CEST.

To celebrate the launch of the sculpting challenge, you can get both the Master Sculpting in Blender and Creature Forge courses with a 20% discount until the end of this challenge.

I’m excited to see what inspiring Urban Monster designs you will come up with.

Have fun!

Hey Reader, Zach here, For the past 6 years, our tutor Martin Klekner has been hard at work, exploring all the possible ways to create epic 3D environments in Blender. As a personal challenge, he tried it without the use of any paid add-ons, the results of all his research he accumulated in his Master 3D Environments in Blender course. 3D scenes you learn to create in the environment course. As Martin’s challenge and his course prove - making awesome, grand scale landscapes in Blender is...

Hey Reader, Zach here, You might know the fear of a blank 3D scene. Finding yourself just staring at the Default Cube in Blender and not knowing how to get to an amazing cinematic animation that you imagined. You’re not alone. Our instructor Cov Phillips has just released a very scary (it's a horror animation) video about dealing with such obstacles on his YouTube channel. In this video, he shares his creative process and vital tips on structuring and finishing a large project, by breaking it...
