Since ancient times, the human body has been a powerful inspiration that fascinated countless artists - everyone from sculptors to painters, to the great Renaissance minds like da Vinci, who remains one of the most renowned anatomists to this day. Recognising the human character as one of the most important 3D modeling categories due to a broad spectrum of creative applications, CGTrader.com aims to spur 3D designers’ interest in taking part by offering a unique angle on its Human Character Challenge.
Marius Kalytis, CGTrader’s CEO said: “We’re inviting 3D designers to catch a break from their regular projects and jazz up one of the most important and interesting 3D modeling categories. Many digital artists are drawn to futuristic projects, others prefer to work on hyper-realistic people, food or architectural renders, but what we’re bringing here is magical realism – it’s what you make of it.”
The 3D Human Character challenge is not the only project that CGTrader is currently running on their marketplace, as designers are also invited to dabble with the future vehicles theme. Due to rapidly growing community of 3D printing designers, the company has also recently launched several initiatives and 3D printing challenges to support the movement.
Founded in 2011, CGTrader.com is a community-based 3D model marketplace that strives to democratize the 3D modelling and 3D design market. There are more than 70,000 3D models uploaded to the digital library and more than 90,000 registered users, uniting 3D modelling professionals from all around the world. It is backed by Practica Capital, a seed and venture funds based in Vilnius, Lithuania, which is financed from the Operational Programme for Economic Growth 2007-2013 under the JEREMIE initiative in Lithuania, by the European Regional Development Fund. The company has also raised funding from Intel Capital to strengthen community and its position in 3D printing market.
