This week we want you to create a shipping container, then tag it #RookiesWeeklyDrills and #ShippingContainer.

Shipping containers are found in all sorts of films and games. They also have the strength suitable to withstand shipment, storage, and handling. They may not sound very exciting, but they are a solid asset to have in any portfolio. You challenge this week is to create a 2D or 3D shipping container that could be used in a film or game. It could be brand spanking new, old and rusty, or even have graffiti all over it. If you have time, take it a bit further and damage them, or even build something complex with a bunch of different ones. Make sure to pay attention to the finer details, scale and materials you use.

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.
