The Best Thing About The Challenge
"I've got this feeling of accomplishment. Learning to sculpt and texture a complete model within a week was great".
"The best thing was to have a deadline and pressure for a 'personal project'... those tend to drag on!"
"Motivation - I want so bad to be seen as an artist and I'm happy that my work born some emotions to others. That was best what I could expect even if I'm just a noob in digital art"

Got more questions? Let's get them answered
The main software of creation is ZBrush. If you still dont have it, you can download the free 30 days trial in the Pixologic website.
You can use Marmoset, Substance Painter, Photoshop etc, but the core of your project should be done in Zbrush.
Yeah why not! Just make sure is your own idea ;)
Yes, you can, but.... We encourage you to fully present your hero. That means textured and posed. This will give more chances to get your entry selected among the finalists ;) If you don't know how to texture, you'll have access to a short video to help you get started. Give it a try!
No, the superhero should be fully original. Make it yours!
Yes, you totally can. Our tools are there to support you, but their use is not compulsory.
You can use the style of your choice. Realistic, stylized, figurative....doesnt matter, just make it original!
The main purpose of the challenge is develop your 3D skills. Even if you are not familiar with Zbrush, we are by your side. We will release daily videos that will help you to create your character.
