This week we want you to create a mobile phone then simply tag it #RookiesWeeklyDrills and #MobilePhone.

Mobile phones are an integral part of life these days. They are evolving super fast and are stunning products with incredibly precise engineering. Your mission this week is to choose a modern mobile phone and create a 2D or 3D project with it as the central focus. We want you to really pay close attention to the finer details, the materials and scale. So go grab some reference, use your own phone and let's see what you can create.

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.

Weekly Drills 049 - Cruella’s Iconic Phone (Stylized Asset) | The Rookies
There was only one thing that I wanted as a kid, and that was Cruella de Vil’s bedroom decor including her iconic devil phone haha. This phone was just epicness, like Cruella herself. I’m super stoked for the Cruella movie this year and wanted to try something different and stylized:) LP in Maya, HP…

Winner

Mobile Phone | The Rookies
I wanted to recreate the Xiaomi A3 phone because it is the one I own at the moment, I wanted to recreate the phone with all the details, I wanted to recreate it new, clean, without having been used.

Second Place

Weekly Drill 049 - Mobile Phone | The Rookies
When the drill said “modern phone” the first thing that came to mind was the phone I currently use, a slightly cracked Samsung Galaxy s9.

Honourable Mention

Mobile Phone | The Rookies
This is a mobile phone made for week 49 of the weekly drills. Got my inspiration from The Night at the Roxbury movie. They used that awesome brick phone. haha
