New ArtStation Community Challenge on the way!

Mark your calendars and start blocking time off your schedule because in one week from today, we’re launching another ArtStation Community Challenge. This is an announcement you don’t want to miss – We’re going to be announcing the new panel of industry expert judges, hosts and really fun theme!

Two Phases

If you followed the last challenge, then you’ll be familiar with how this will work. The first phase of the challenge will be dedicated to concept design. Participants will have 4 weeks to deliver their keyframe, character or environment concept art. The second phase will be more geared towards production and participants will be given 8 weeks to deliver their final submission with the option again of using a concept from Phase 1 or creating their own. (Some might even choose to participate in both phases!)

The categories for the upcoming challenge are:

Phase 1

  • Concept Art – Keyframe
  • Concept Art – Character Design
  • Concept Art – Environment Design

Phase 2

  • 3D/Realtime Game Character Art
  • 3D/Realtime Game Environment Art
  • 3D/Pre-rendered Character Art
  • 3D/Pre-rendered Digital Matte Painting

More Hosts

Something we learned from feedback in the last challenge is that some more popular categories need more than one host to be able to have enough time to help out on giving feedback for the high number of submissions. One of the main goals of our challenges is that they are a learning experience to help artists for improvement. For that reason, we’ve upped the number of hosts in these categories to make sure that challengers will be getting helpful feedback from hosts to bring their work to the next level.

Get Ready

Registration for Phase 1 of the new challenge begins next Monday, June 26, 2017. Take part to learn, make new contacts around the world, create some awesome pieces for your portfolio and have fun!
