Oct 03, 2019

Cyperpunk #KB3Dcontest was sponsored by OTOY® and we cannot thank them enough for the incredible support in helping make this the best #kb3dcontest yet. Finalists in both the Concept & In-Motion categories will win up to $1,300 USD worth of prizes and winners will receive OctaneRender® Enterprise All-Access subscriptions! 

In-Motion Winners

WINNER: 

David Perry

Designer // Animator working in Los Angeles, California: David's Vimeo

In this bleak future there is no hope or beauty in the world; only a virtual escape. For those ready to leave this world behind and permanently become one with nature, a new entrepreneurial start-up has developed the latest in medical technology: "Quiet Night". After a thorough virtual interview, a custom environment is created based on your personal preferences as to what your final sights, thoughts, and dreams shall be. You will not feel a thing.

2ND PLACE: 

Toni Pykäläniemi 

Digital Artist in Vancouver, Canada: Toni's ArtStation

The quintessential look at a Cyberpunk mega city. The detail, scale and composition create a breath-taking look at a terrifying future that feels all too real.

3RD PLACE: 

Gabriel Punsalang 

3D Generalist / Motion Designer in Las Pinas, Philippines: Gabriel's ArtStation

Gabriel's disparate hero is blasted into another realm from their suffocating Cyberpunk reality and the journey is terrifying, and trippy!

Concept Winners

WINNER: 

Joe Valliant

Senior 3d Artist specialized in Arch-Viz in Gütersloh, Germany. Joe's ArtStation

Besides portraying the best noodles in town, Joe avoided the night shot/foggy cliché that we see so much (but still love!) in the cyberpunk genre. The idea was to create an everyday feel and this piece certainly achieved that in a uniquely bold way!

2ND PLACE: 

Nathan Haines

Concept Artist from Leeds, United Kingdom: Nathan's ArtStation.

Nathan's composition and shape language give the viewer so much to observe and absorb without completely overwhelming them -- a difficult feat to achieve well in a thoughtful and emotional rendition with a classic cyberpunk feel. 

3RD PLACE: 

Skie Graphics Studio

Freelance enthusiast of art, graphics and websites in Rome, Italy: Skie Graphics Studio's Website.

Sharp contrasts and smart composition give this piece an edgy story and make its car star quite compelling!
