Adobe Dimension – From the Moon to Mars Challenge Award Winners and Honourable Mentions

For six decades, NASA has led the peaceful exploration of space, making discoveries about our planet, our solar system, and our universe. To celebrate this momentous anniversary and the release of Adobe Dimension 2.1, Adobe challenged artists to imagine the history or future of human exploration in space in the Adobe Dimension – From the Moon to Mars Challenge.

Artists were called on to tell the stories of past and future space missions using free 3D assets from the Adobe 3D Stock “NASA: 60th Anniversary 3D Celebration” gallery and Adobe Dimension to compose and render a space-based scene following the challenge theme: From the Moon to Mars—Apollo 50th Anniversary.

Special guest judge former NASA astronaut Nicole Stott, a veteran of two missions to the International Space Station and the astronaut who painted the first watercolor in space, judged the submissions along with the Adobe Dimension team and challenge host Randall Mackey.

“As an artist and astronaut, I was thrilled to participate in the judging for the ArtStation/Adobe Dimension – From the Moon to Mars challenge. Such an awesome way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Apollo and humanity’s first travels to another planetary body. I was especially excited by the creative presentation of how the work we’ve done on the Moon will lead the way to our future in space and here on spaceship Earth.”                                      Nicole Stott – “The Artistic Astronaut” – Artist ~ Astronaut ~ Earthling
