Sculpt January 2023 Prompts 🗿🔨

Published over 1 year ago • 1 min read

Hey Reader,

Zach here and I have some "bittersweet" news for you.

Let's start with the "sweet" news: 2023 is about to start, so it is time for another round of Sculpt January, the 31-day-challenge to improve your sculpting skills (+ get 20% off for our Blender sculpting course).

The "bitter" news: This will be the last time we are hosting this event.

Although this is a super fun challenge, and we love to see all your great sculptures, we're in the process of re-focusing our time and energy on the projects that really matter to us, to provide the best quality in what we do best: tutorials and courses. This is why we decided to let go of Sculpt January after January 2023.

What is Sculpt January?

It is an online event, where you can challenge your sculpting skills (digital or traditional) over 31 days of January, with a set of 31 topics we provide (list below). There are no prizes, it's all about improving your sculpting skills and having fun.

How to take part?

  1. Create a sculpting inspired by the topics we provide for each day of January 2023 (see the prompts list below)
  2. Post images of your results on social media
  3. Tag your posts with the hashtag #sculptjanuary2023 and mention us @sculptjanuary
  4. If you get all 31 sculptures done, share a collage at the end of the month, and be proud of what you have achieved 💪

You can also follow Sculpt January on Twitter and Instagram, there we'll share some of your creations (we closed the Facebook group, since we are not active there anymore).

Prompt List

Here you can download the prompt list and logo in high resolution.

Thanks to the community for suggesting and voting for the topics.

Despite the bittersweet news, in behalf of the entire CG Boost team, I wish you a fantastic, creative new year and a fun (last) Sculpt January challenge.


P.S. If you want to get into digital sculpting in Blender, check our Master 3D Sculpting in Blender course, which is 20% off, during Sculpt January.

Hey Reader, Zach here, If you are struggling to find the motivation to learn 3D, or if you have abandoned projects and courses half way, you are most definitely not alone. In fact, I believe it is the most common struggle all artists go through. This also happened to Tetiana Markov, one of our passionate CG Boost students and challenge participants. We were very excited to interview her, to share her story of how she overcame all kinds of self-doubt and got her work featured on Blender Nation...

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...
