News Contests Circus Challenge - Sponsored by Substance and Pixologic by Andrew McDonald 10 months ago 2 min read We first launched this challenge back in May 2011. It's time to revisit all the exotic animals, performers and wonder that were created for us all those years ago.The BriefThe first circus was established in Rome and called Circus Maximus. It was more of an entertainment extravaganza which showcased chariots and exotic animals from around the world, acrobats and jugglers performing for the huge crowds. The Circus of today is even more varied and amazing. We all have our own idea of what a circus is and for some of us great memories can be recalled of past shows, performances or characters. And with that in mind... Roll up! Roll up! The Circus is in town!Choose a category that best fits your skills - Character Design, Creature Design or Environment Design.
