Unity Technologies is happy to announce it's second "Unity Community Forum Challenge"! Everybody is welcome to join in and show other fellow artist what they can do and compete for the First Place! This Challenge is sponsored once again by Sketchfab. This months Challenge is themed "The Island". In essence, you are to re-create an Island or more precisely a Diorama of an Island or a section/part of an Island! It could be your typical Palm Tree Island or perhaps a rocky Island with hot Lava flowing into the ocean? Maybe your Diorama tells a little story using well placed objects and characters? Use your imagination and be creative... surprise us! As a result we want to see a beautiful creative Diorama! Post Work in Progress Screenshots or even use Sketchfab to present your work in progress. See rules below. 1. Participants will have till the end of the month (October, 31st) to submit their Final Entry 2. Final Entry must be a "Diorama" showcasing the theme "The Island" (can include characters/vehicles/etc). To showcase your work use the Sketchfab website or any of the various Sketchfab plugins available for the various 3D software packages. Post your final Sketchfab link in this thread. 3. Polycount Limitation for this Challenge is 50.000 Vertices. Only ever use as many polygons as necessary to define a shape! This is a game art challenge after all! Make use of normal maps etc to give your textures/meshes more detail. 4. You can use normal maps, specular maps etc to enhance your work visually. Perhaps try to combine textures onto one texture sheet if possible for efficiency, however it's not a requirement. There is no restriction on how many textures you can use but keep in mind that this is a game art challenge so don't go too crazy. 5. Entrants must post at least 1 WIP (Work in Progress) Screenshot before submitting their Final Entry. We suggest you post more and get feedback! Please visit https://help.sketchfab.com/hc/en-us/sections/200485707-Uploading-3D-Models for further information on how to use and upload to Sketchfab. 6. Your final entries must be submitted through Sketchfab. Please tag your work with the words: "UCAC" and "Island" and lastly "Final". 7. No previous work can be used. This essentially means that you should create everything from scratch! 8. No nudity or gross violence or political themes please! Keep it clean and fun for everyone!
