“Dystopia/Utopia” was our second 3D art challenge, and we received so many thought-provoking images that our panel of judges certainly had their work cut out for them. We’d like to give a huge thank you to everyone who participated, and we’re delighted to share the winners of this year’s TurboSquid art competition!
1st place – Glen Johnson
Glen’s prize-winning masterpiece is breathtaking and seems to be a perfect blend of dystopian and utopian elements. You can view more of Glen’s work at his Artstation, Sketchfab, and YouTube accounts.

2nd place – Chris Matthews
Chris’s creation appears, at first glance, to be a cozy, inviting utopia for one. Looking closer, the setting under a giant robotic hand infers a bleak history of what came before this scene. While dystopian themes are hardly ever described as cozy, we think Chris did a fantastic job of hitting that mark. You can view his work on Behance.

3rd place – ALBINO CREATIONS
ALBINO CREATIONS is composed of two team members: Werner Burger and Louis Minnaar. Their lush utopian scene is a feast for the eyes and left us wondering how their vision of the future came to be. You can check out their portfolio on their website. You can also find them on Facebook (Louis + @albinocreations) and on Instagram (@albino_creations + @louisminnaar).
