Stay tuned!Winners AnnouncedProfessional Category1st Place: "Shooter" by Ako GhadermarziTITLE: ShooterCAPTION: On Halloween night, the "Pumpkin Shooter" with a lazy pumpkin head and a unique gun protected the town from spooky creatures with enchanted pumpkin seeds. The town's residents slept soundly, Knowing they were safe.WHAT OUR JURY SAYS:Serhii Antropov: This is a very nicely done picture with good colors and an interesting character in action.Miho Aoki: This is very dynamic, intense and scary! The image looks like it's captured a moment of the pumpkin in action. Colors, lighting and texture are well done, too.Tom Grimes: Not sure why a mage needs a gun, but the drama and action of this image made it my first choice!Izzy Kalli: Ako's submission is an excellent demonstration of skill, with a notable depth of field that effectively accentuates the sinister expression on the pumpkin. The inclusion of fire emanating from the pumpkin's eyes and head adds a captivating touch to the overall composition.2nd Place: "Tales of Uncle Pumpkin" by Andrey OliverTITLE: Tales of Uncle PumpkinCAPTION: Uncle Pumpkin is a wizard gardener, and this year, he received a new visitor - his little nephew! He wasted no time in showcasing his magic and sorcery. Uncle Pumpkin has the most beautiful plants in the region and can't wait for his nephew to grow up, and become both his apprentice and best friend.WHAT OUR JURY SAYS:Frank WANG Yefeng: I think achieving success in this competition hinges on a well-executed character design. For the first price, I appreciate Andreys distinctive character design which makes the image look lively. The cinematic composition adds an imaginative layer to the narrative in the image. The placement of props around the character enhances the richness of the overall composition. The practical lighting effects, especially the clever use of pumpkin eyes and candles, are commendable choices. Additionally, the volume light from the moon shines into the scene through the window, adding a touch of enchantment to the overall picture.Samuel Winter: I love the overall style of this, its very unified, as in nothing seems out of place. The colour palette is wonderful, it fits the style really well and ties the scene together. The lighting does a great job of conveying warmth, and is utilised in such a way, as to pick out the details of our main subjects, especially as its contrasted with the colder tones of the background. Great stuff!Izzy Kalli: I appreciate the cohesive visual style of this artwork by Andrey. The clean and stylized aesthetic is maintained consistently, featuring vibrant textures and impressive modeling skills. Noteworthy details, such as the volumetrics enhancing the rim lighting or the attention to hair/fur on the clothing, highlight Andrey's keen creative attention to detail.Serhii Antropov: I love this cartoon style that makes this work stand out from the rest.Miho Aoki: The room looks like a secret basement room, with vines adding to the magical and mysterious feeling. The glowing lighting and the colors contributed to the mood of the image. I noticed the inside of the character's dress emits a glow, too. That's a cool detail!3rd Place: "Spooky Pumpkin" by Joonho BangTITLE: Spooky PumpkinCAPTION: Ready for Halloween?WHAT OUR JURY SAYS:Samuel Winter: The minimal nature of the background works really well here, as it helps draw the eye to the details of the main subject and foreground elements. The material choices for the main character are nice, and offer a stark contrast against the luminant cauldron fumes.Frank WANG Yefeng: Again, I really like this distinctive character design. The seamless interaction and movement between the character and the foreground objects are remarkably convincing. The skilful depiction of the magical fume spilling out of the container showcases the author's exceptional rendering skills. Furthermore, the captivating color scheme employed in the image contributes to its overall fantastical atmosphere.Student Category1st Place: "The GrimPkin Mage" by Arnel AñanaTITLE: The GrimPkin MageCAPTION: The Grim Pumpkin, the undead who became immortal.WHAT OUR JURY SAYS:Tom Grimes: Excellent detail, composition, and lighting, with the "no humans" sign a nice touch!Izzy Kalli: Arnel's submission clinches the top spot in my view, with a decent composition. Considerations for improvement could involve adjusting the focal length or bringing the pumpkin mage closer for enhanced prominence. Exploring textures in more detail and incorporating rim lighting could further enhance the overall effect. Nevertheless, it stands as a robust submission in the student category.Samuel Winter: It's all about the character in this piece for me, a good amount of effort has gone into the flourishes on the clothing.Serhii Antropov: Good job with the character concept and I love the little details in the scene.2nd Place: "Mortal Grin" by Elena KiselevaTITLE: Mortal GrinCAPTION: In the spooky moonlight, get ready for a scary surprise on your way home. Watch out for its creepy stare in the dark night!WHAT OUR JURY SAYS:Miho Aoki: The image has a great atmosphere and lighting. The warm orange lights in the background make the cool color fog and glow of the pumpkin look more mysterious and eerie by contrast.Frank WANG Yefeng: This artwork excels in its composition, color palette, material and texture utilization, and rendering techniques. The artist adeptly places the pumpkin head at the visual focal point, and at the same time demonstrating a keen sense of balance with the environment. The execution is of consistently high quality across all aspects.Samuel Winter: I like the composition here. The contrast between the lighting in the subject, the environment, and sky works really well. The environment has good details, and the volumetrics in the pumpkin eyes is a nice touch.Izzy Kalli: Elena's submission is quite appealing, with the pumpkin harmonizing well with the backdrop of dead trees. The unconventional use of blue emanating from within, instead of the traditional orange, adds a distinctive touch. Overall, it's a pleasing submission and a commendable job.3rd Place: "The Halloween House" by Ethan Romano, Clément Montbarbon, Pauline Mercat, Maxence ParlatiTITLE: The Halloween HouseCAPTION: It's Halloween! And this night the dead are waking up and taking control of the world! That's what happened to this pumpkin farmer who got revived in front of his house! Unfortunately, his 3 dogs got also reincarnated as murlocks that's why the skeleton is now getting attacked!WHAT OUR JURY SAYS:Frank WANG Yefeng: I selected this artwork as the third-place winner because of its use of a variety of richly rendered elements in the composition. It is evident that the artist invested considerable effort in crafting the elaborate costumes and props for the characters. Additionally, the inclusion of the flaming particle element at the bottom of the image adds a dynamic dimension to the overall composition.Miho Aoki: It looks like a scene from a strange story: a skeleton with a pumpkin head is attacked by fish-like water monsters. The pumpkin head looks as if it's caught off-guard, and more water monsters are coming out to attack the pumpkin. A cart loaded with harvested pumpkins is on the left, which probably belongs to the pumpkin character. The image makes me keep observing the details. While many aspects of this image, including the image composition, are not perfect, I'm struck by the unique idea and the details the artist created for this scene.Serhii Antropov: Overall a well done scene with interesting characters.Izzy Kalli: Ethan's submission stands out with added character and elements in the scene. Despite this, it lacks a clear focal point, with attention drawn to the pumpkin house rather than the mage. The narrative involving the fish biting the skeleton bones of the pumpkin mage's arm adds an interesting touch. Improving the composition to center more on the mage could enhance the overall impact, but nonetheless, it remains a great submission.As the leading cloud rendering service provider and render farm in the CG industry, Fox Renderfarm has always been committed to the CG community. Our FGT3D competition will continue next year and it's a challenge we are looking forward to your participation!

And thanks to everyone for participating!The third place in the Student Category of FGT3D Fox Challenge goes to Sithuka Bihan with his work, Mod Fox.“I am really drawn to this image, despite (or perhaps because of) its simplicity. I really love how everything has this wonderful glow, and how cute the fox looks and their expression and pose which somehow makes them look a little timid and vulnerable. Makes me feel like this could come from a video game.” One of our judges, Tom Grimes said.Let's find out more about Sithuka’s amazing artwork through this exclusive and inspiring interview with Fox Renderfarm!Fox Renderfarm: Hi Sithuka! We are honored to have you here! First of all, congratulations on winning the 3rd Prize in Student Category of FGT3D Fox Challenge! Could you tell us a little bit about yourself? And how do you feel about it?Sithuka: Hi, my name is Sithuka Bihan. I am from Sri Lanka. I am 16 years old and I started learning Blender and other techniques about 3 years ago. I've been doing everything to advance in knowledge and advance in this career. I was really surprised to win 3rd place. Really happy.Fox Renderfarm: What is the inspiration for your work Mod Fox?Sithuka: I love playing mobile games and also like bright colors. So I came up with a new fox in the low-poly world with neon shading.Fox Renderfarm: Could you elaborate a bit on your workflow/pipeline of this project? And how long did it take you?Sithuka: It took about one week. Firstly, I started modeling fox and I rigged it in nearly two days. Thereafter, I started to build the background. I model everything in low poly to make it more like a game environment. After that, I added emission shading. Finally, I composed both background and foreground to complete the artwork.© Sithuka BihanFox Renderfarm: Did you meet any difficulties during this project? How did you tackle them?Sithuka: The main difficulty was choosing between low poly and high poly. I decided to use low poly because of the use of neon shading.© Sithuka BihanFox Renderfarm: Could you share your educational experience with us? How did you start creating 3D artworks?Sithuka: I'm a self-taught designer and learner. I started learning when I was 13 years old. I got great knowledge from Youtube videos and books. In the past 3 years, I have enjoyed creating artworks a lot.Fox Renderfarm: Any artworks or artists inspire you the most?Sithuka: I am a great fan of many excellent artists, but I am inspired mostly by Izza Artz, Randy Chriz and Jaeyeon Nam.Fox Renderfarm: What is your career plan as a student in graphic design?Sithuka: I hope to continue my self-learning and gain experience from freelancing.

Congrats to all the winners!Special thanks to our kind sponsors who supported FGT3D Christmas Vibes Challenge and helped 3D artists create their impressive Xmas works. They are all the best in their fields, and we recommend everyone their services/products.Winners Announced1. Professional Category1st Place: “Merry Christmas” by Jin Yao WongTITLE: Merry ChristmasCAPTION: Packaging Christmas gifts.WHAT OUR JURY SAYS:Frank WANG Yefeng: I really like the interaction and resonation of various small objects in this rendering, such as the Santa Claus mug and the Christmas lollipops in it, the different materials of the candy canes in the boots and on the table, the alarm clock on the left and the holiday bell deco on the window, etc. The rich details, such as the crossed out names on the sticky note, also make the picture full of storytelling. The nostalgic cinematic effect ties all the stories in the image together and makes this rendering a highly finished work of art.Miho Aoki: The image has a rustic and very warm feel and great details! The bright lighting and a bit washed-out look goes well with the theme.Fox Renderfarm Team: This render immediately catches our eyes. It is rich in detail and charmingly colored, creating a warm, happy atmosphere with cinematic lighting and wonderful texture that recalls the joyful feelings brought by Christmas gifts. We already hear Christmas songs ringing in our ears!2nd Place: “Secret Santa” by Kay John YimTITLE: Secret SantaCAPTION:"In the Neo-Gothic hall of dreams,A giant cat with Santa hat gleams,Sleeping soundly on the floor,A picture of peace and joy galore.The lights of Christmas twinkle bright,A beacon of joy in the winter's night,As the secret Santa brings delight,A celebration of all that is right.The magic of Christmas fills the air,A time of joy and love to share,In the Neo-Gothic hall of dreams,Where the spirit of the season gleams."A fantastical recreation of the "Gallery" room at Strawberry Hill House, Twickenham (London), a Gothic Revival Villa with elaborate and mesmerizing decorations.WHAT OUR JURY SAYS:Frank WANG Yefeng: This is a really imaginative piece of work. The kitty in the center of the picture immediately captures the viewers' eyes and their hearts. The opulent dome draws one's imagination deeper into the picture. After a while, you will find that the real protagonists of the story turn out to be hidden in the dimness in the lower left corner of the composition. This is a picture that makes one think of Alice in Wonderland. I really like it!Miho Aoki: Is the pattern on the ceiling procedurally generated? The warm-colored and back-lit lighting looks very artistic.Fox Renderfarm Team: Gorgeous, psychedelic, and enchanting, that's how we sum up this Xmas work. All the elements are just right, the warm lights and the charming architecture make you want to go into the house to feel the peaceful and joyful Christmas vibes here. By the way, the giant kitty is so real and so cute!3rd Place: “Christmas Room” by Yana FedyakovaTITLE: Christmas RoomCAPTION: Santa is coming soon.WHAT OUR JURY SAYS:Tom Grimes: I was drawn to the lovely warm glow of this image, and the whimsical and sweet nature of the image. Definitely makes me feel full of Christmas cheer!Fox Renderfarm Team: The design is so delicate! It seems like the decorations for a warm and cozy cottage while it is freezing cold outside. The lights on the Christmas tree and in the fire definitely make the whole atmosphere warmer.2. Student Category1st Place: “A Christmas Wish” by Jonathan RyuukiTITLE: A Christmas WishCAPTION: The Christmas season is coming! A little girl who has wanted a lovely gift for a long time. With all her limitations, Christmas comes and gives an unexpected present. A present that answers her lifelong wish.Christmas thaws every frozen heart and gives new vibes. Vibes that aren’t just about the shimmering eve and the beauty of the Christmas tree. It's about giving a cup brimming with warmth and spread of love, happiness, and joy on the coldest night. And the most important thing is to share a thousand hopes for every lonely and broken heart. Let the Christmas vibes fill the air!WHAT OUR JURY SAYS:Miho Aoki: It looks like a scene from a story. The image has great lighting. The toys behind the windows looking at Santa and the kid are cute!Tom Grimes: I like the composition and amount of detail in this one, and the magical story it shows taking place. An image that is full of Christmas spirit!Fox Renderfarm Team: So many elements in this work! You can find more beautiful details as you look longer at the scene. Fun little props, beautiful Christmas decorations, and cute characters form a warm environment with a strong Xmas atmosphere. What an impressive 3D work that was created by a student.2nd Place: “Hope Endures” by Petar StoyanovTITLE: Hope EnduresCAPTION: Even after the darkest of times hope, love and light will also beat the darkness around us and prevail.WHAT OUR JURY SAYS:Tom Grimes: Good level of detail here, and it's both a reminder of how hard some people have it at Christmas when they are facing a time of upheaval and destruction, and a reminder of how hope continues to shine in the hearts of those people.Frank WANG Yefeng: This work is of a high level in terms of both concept and technique. The beautiful rendering gives the impression that one is watching a rich and profound widescreen film. When the viewers see the Christmas tree in the center of the composition, they will soon notice the surrounding that is destroyed by war. The burnt pavilion behind the tree becomes a temporary convergence of people who lost their homes. They pray for the end of the war and that the scattered people can return soon. While immersed in the joy of the holiday, let us not forget to pray for the people who are still suffering in other parts of the world.Fox Renderfarm Team: We like the storytelling of the scene so much. The happy Christmas tree and its warm lights are a stark contrast to the depressed and gloomy surroundings, making everyone feel hopeful. The composition, lighting, and use of color make you think deeply about this work as if it tells a complete story to you. Wondering what is the artist's inspiration…3rd Place: “Getting ready for Christmas” by Jacek JamrozyTITLE: Getting ready for ChristmasWHAT OUR JURY SAYS:Frank WANG Yefeng: A very lovely piece of work that also has a slight touch of melancholy. This piece made me realize that Santa Claus and his gingerbread men were both carved out of wood by the author.Fox Renderfarm Team: Carving Santa Claus out of wood to show the Christmas vibes, what a unique and clever idea! Who does the artist want to give this Christmas gift to? The lighting and textures give this piece of artwork a photorealistic render, and the gingerbread man has just the right amount of decorative embellishment.Learn more and enjoy the finalists artworks on FGT3D Christmas Vibes Challenge.Congrats to all the winners and thanks to every participant again!

3D Art Competitions

Recently, the much-anticipated annual Evermotion Challenge announced the final winners! This year, Evermotion decided to change the rules of its competition. The biggest change is the resignation from suggesting the topic to the contestants. Artists can submit their architectural visualization and animation works made after 1st January, 2022, and the deadline for submission is 4th December, 2022. For this year, participants can submit their works made entirely by themselves in four categories, including “The best commercial render”, “The best non-commercial render”, “The best animation”, and “The best new, previously unpublished work”.Image via Evermotion Challenge 2022Fox Renderfarm, the best render farm in the CG industry, is committed to providing secure, fast and affordable cloud rendering services, and making contributions to the CG industry by sponsoring international CG challenges. As a long-term partner of Evermotion Challenge, Fox Renderfarm also sponsored Evermotion Challenge 2022.Winners AnnouncedThe jury of Evermotion Challenge 2022 has selected four winners! Voting was fierce, especially in the "Best Commercial Render" category. Here are the four finalists that made the best 3D works in 2022, with comments from the jury. Congrats to the four winners!1. Best Animation - Unreal Short Film by Aurel AltoVasilis Koutlis: “Aurel Alto obviously created a great short film. It stands out from anything else I've seen not only for the amount of work, which was enormous but also because of the respect for all the basic principles of 3D art. It was an enjoyable 10 minutes of viewing!”Hrvoje Cop: “This entry immediately stood out from the others, not only due to its sheer length at almost 9 minutes, but also the visual style and presence of an actual story. While not perfect, and in particular moments revealing of its 'made by a solo guy in UE' nature, it is without question the best of this year's entries. I would also like to add the audio was well done and fit the overall theme nicely. Congratulations on your persistence and hard work.”Michal Horba: “As my previous speakers said - your animation stood out from others; you actually took effort to make a real movie. Congratulations on your hard work! Yet it lacks some in plot, or technical aspects, however it is really amazing to realize that a single guy took a shoot and made a nice UE piece.Congratulations and keep it going!”2. Best Commercial Render - Hotel in the Train Station, Versailles by sentievermo© sentievermoVasilis Koutlis: “First of all, it's an interesting project itself. A typical daylight scenario but with beautiful work in the foreground. It's not the super hyper-realistic style I usually love to see while looking at a commercial project but a respectable effort with a pretty nice and picturesque result.”Hrvoje Cop: “This year's entries were a varied bunch, but upon my first look, this image stood out to me as the most visually pleasing. Nicely done overall and technically solid. I like the details, and I only noticed what seems to be an out-of-focus element stuck to the camera upon second viewing. I have no idea what that is, but I can't really say that I mind it. Being commercial work, I can understand the somewhat rigid perspective, but I do believe a bit more creative framing might improve the shot further.”Michal Horba: “I love the idea that some of old infrastructure can still be reused and made into a working hotel. Your work is rich in details and has very pleasant vibes.The mood is warm, your work invites to visit this place and encourages to take a walk down the railtrack ;) As for me you sold the idea and commercial rendering should always do. Congratulations you are a master of your craft!”3. Best Personal Work - Ancient Mega Machine by dpandrell© dpandrellVasilis Koutlis: “The first thing that came to my mind when I saw this image was "Pure love for 3D art". Simply Congratulations!”Hrvoje Cop: “Great concept and lots of effort in this one. I like the attention to detail and that no part of the image was 'sacrificed' just to be done with it, which is so often the case. Good work on the near/far planes and nice lighting as well. I like the subtle volumetrics, and the use of sparks and particles to emphasize the factory-like feel of the whole image.”Michal Horba: “I don't really know what to say apart from that: this is mindblowing! Great composition, rich and interesting concept, perfect lighting- in short- EYE CANDY! Nice playing with the plans - solid and strong; black figures and wires that set a frame of your image do the job.I can imagine how much work took the concept of that ship but surely it was worth it because that looks splendid.Congratulations!”4. Best Unpublished Work - Mobile House by Ruming Cao© Ruming CaoVasilis Koutlis: “Everything in this project looks pleasant. The framing is very good and you can observe so many details everywhere which are embraced by wonderful illumination and storytelling.”Hrvoje Cop: “A clear winner in this category. Nice concept, well executed, there's a story to it and lots of cool details. Not the luckiest of compositions considering how the tower needlessly sits on the very edge of the frame but that is a minor gripe all things considered. Good work!”Michal Horba: “Nice! This is the most original idea in this category. You got rich and funky imagination and along with your skills its a nice blend. The details, light, all technical stuff is terrific but the composition is kinda cropped on top and I don't know was that intended or is it just a bug. Despite that your work seems complete to me and is a number one in this category. Congratulations on your work!”Learn more about Evermotion Challenge 2022Check out Evermotion Challenge 2022 Submitted Works GalleryCongratulations again to the four winners!
