Justin has selected his top three entries for this Weekly Drill. He based his selection on the following: Subject Matter, Skill Showcase, Presentation, Would I Play with this.


Lego StarWars - Hoth
This is my entry for the Weekly Drills 002 - #KidsToy. This is my first time doing a paint over and some photo bashing a 3d render. Pretty pleased with how it came out. Used a still from Battlefront as reference.

Second Place

#WeeklyDrills 002 - Lego Joel
For the second #WeeklyDrills I decided to model a Lego minifigure. I was inspired by Adam J. Middelton’s artwork The hair was sculpted in zBrush, the modeling and rendering done with Maya/Arnold and the texturing with Affinity Photo.

Third Place

Weekly Drill, kids Toy
First weekly drill - a kids toy : Playmobil Wandering for the summer and to get outside again!


How many entries can I submit?
As many as you want.

How do I tag my project?
