Production artists – it’s go time! It’s now your turn to show us what you can do in the Feudal Japan – The Shogunate Challenge. This is your chance to refine your skills, get some feedback, meet other great artists and have fun!

Join the Challenge

This time around, the challenge is slightly shorter but the briefs have been adjusted to fit the timeline. Like in past challenges, you can choose an entry from the first phase to base your submission on or you can create your own.

Check out the entries from the Concept Phase that just wrapped up for some inspiration:

An important part of ArtStation Challenges is posting WIPs so that the judges and viewers can see how you came to your end result and can give feedback along the way.
