“Lost at Sea” was our first ever 3D art challenge, and we were thrilled with the quality of submissions we received from all of you! Our panel of TurboSquid and 3D industry judges had their work cut out for them, and the judging is now complete. We’re happy to show everyone the winners for the Lost at Sea 3D Art Competition!
MAXON is the team behind Cinema 4D, one of the 3D industry’s most trusted tools for modeling and motion graphics design. Today, they announced that they’ve released an entirely new way to design and work with 3D content: Cineware for Illustrator. Their powerful new plugin allows designers to import any C4D project and tweak the camera, lights, textures and objects themselves directly within Adobe Illustrator CC. Read More
As the deadline for submitting to the Lost at Sea 3D art contest is drawing nearer, we wanted to introduce you to our panel of judges! We’re lucky to have several 3D industry luminaries participating in the judging, as well as some of our own talented Squids.

When it comes to ornate and intricate 3D modeling, one of our favorite artists is Walid Layouni, also known on TurboSquid as GoldSmooth. His collection is loaded with lavishly designed furniture and interiors. His latest creation is a detailed replica of the auditorium within the Opera Garnier Of Paris – La Salle, and he has put together a step-by-step guide showing his process for building the model.
We recently connected with indie game developer and TurboSquid customer, Sjoerd “Hourences” De Jong, about his action/adventure game The Solus Project. He and his team just released a version of the game for the PS4 (with VR support!), and it has been available on both PC and Xbox One since last summer. We love talking to customers about projects that they’ve released to see how TurboSquid and our community of artists played a role in the finished product.
Sometimes you focus on creating models that you think will sell well, and sometimes you just want to model something that’s downright fun to make. 3D artist Juan Camilo Alcaraz Cartagena (known as Alzarac on TurboSquid) is usually focused on making furniture models, but he got inspired by last year’s release of Rogue One and decided to build this awesome New Order Stormtrooper helmet.
