[ENDED] Sketchfab Low Poly Challenge: Stylized Bust


This week, we challenge you to recreate your favorite character or person as a low poly stylized bust, upload your model to Sketchfab, and tag it #StylizedBustChallenge.

Full rules and prize details can be found in the blog announcement:


Hey all, I decided to make one of my long time fav character from the MK series.
Started modelling last week, got it to about 95% done on Friday and started texturing.
Planing to do small tweaks and add some buckles here and there and it will be finished on the 3D side :slight_smile:


And here is a shot about where I got with the 100% “traditional” hand painted texture since I finished the mesh, still quite a bit to do but it’s taking shape :slight_smile:

I’ll try and make a shot animated gif how this was built up, later down the line :slight_smile:


A little late but here it is. Good luck to everyone :smile:


I’ll try my hand too. At first I overdid it a bit … and forgot about the polygon limit) But I fixed it
Hope I made it in time)

Good luck to all participants!


tiny update, more to come today :smiley:

What a cast of characters! Incredible work, everyone. We loved seeing the characters you chose to create and the styles you used to make them look amazing.

Here’s what the judges had to say about it:

“This bust is just amazing, super nice model with a lot of tiny details and the hand painting is mind-blowing, this fire/blast light on the bust’s sides matches perfectly with the model.” - Kevin (@KevinCayuelaBorg)

“Amazing hand painted texture with beautiful presentation and a super low poly mesh just perfect for any real-time rendering. Get over here! :wavy_dash::wavy_dash::wavy_dash::wavy_dash::wavy_dash::next_track_button::trophy: - Warkarma (@warkarma)

“Very high detailed for such a low poly, amazing work all around.” - Alex (@dark_minaz)

“Awesome model with lots of details but still achieving a distinct handpainted and stylized look!” - Phil (@saphires)

“I have to agree with Phil on this one! Wow, just wow!” - Mieke (@miekeroth)
