This week we want you to create some headphones that you own, or would love to own. Ideally you should be able to use them as a prop in a game, film, digital render, or even as a drawing for your portfolio. Then simply tag it #RookiesWeeklyDrills and #headphones.

There are obviously plenty of options to choose from this week with DJ Style, over-ear, on-ear, gaming headsets and ever earbuds up for grabs. As usual, make sure to pay attention to the finer details. Really look into how the product is constructed - Where are the moulding join lines? What is the textural detail? What different materials are there? Are these fresh or used?

To get some feedback on your work-in-progress project before you submit it, head over to Discord channel and chat with other artists having a crack. To see all the Weekly Drill projects just follow this link.

How do I tag my project?
During Step 2 of the project building process, you will see a tag input field in the right column under your project title and description input fields. Note: Do not include  "#" with your tag (e.g. #RookiesWeeklyDrills), the tool already handles that for you. See below for example.
