[ENDED] Sketchfab Modeling Challenge: Sketchbot

(Bart) #1

We recently started experimenting with automatic notifications of significant events on your Sketchfab models or profile: if you’re lucky, Sketchbot might leave a comment when we feature you on social media, or when you reach a huge amount of followers:


But there’s a problem: Sketchbot is still a standard emoji! YOU could give him a face by participating in our new challenge.

TL;DR: Design an avatar for Sketchbot with any tool or technique you prefer, upload it to Sketchfab and tag it with #SketchbotChallenge.

:information_source: Be sure to read the full rules and info in the announcement blog post.

Hi ! I’ve a question. Must we do a design close to the emoji ? Or are we totally free ?

(Bart) #4

You’re totally free. Just keep the Sketchfab values in mind :slight_smile:

I’ve made some design research, and I’ve choose one of it. So here what I’ll going to do :

I’ll focus on its face, but if I have the time, I think I’ll make the complete robot.

@kyan0s I love the idea that you have with the SketchFab Logo on the Robot, I was wondering If I can use the same idea?

For this contest I want to make a robot like a vintage machine or computer. I want to be close to the original but I considere this avatar / robot need expression in depend of the context.
To break the solid mouth aspect I am inspired by Bender of Futurama and Portal 2

I had draw some ideas

Voxel bot progress. The Sketchbot color made me think of the 2005 movie ROBOTS, with the retro vibe, so I went with a cute toaster vibe.
