And the winners are...

First Place: Astraía by Quentin Otani (@quentinotani)

“This is both lovely and scary at the same time. I really like the materials and subtle ‘wire’ textures, as well as the bit of animation to add life to the scene.” - Bart (@bartv)

“The subtle animation here is fantastic, just generally a gorgeous piece.” - Janet and the Team at Looking Glass Factory

“This looks so powerful. Great use of texture maps and a wonderful backstory. I love the presentation and the color choice. Great work🏆” - Warkarma (@warkarma)

“This futurist porcelain doll getting alive with a steampunk style, creates a really nice composition and scene. She can be the new main virtual assistant like Siri or Cortana hehehe.” - Kevin (@KevinCayuelaBorg)

"I love the subtle animations, the color palette, and the creative and artistic approach to depicting the robot. " - Abby (@abbyec)
