This week we want you to build a lighthouse using your preferred tools and workflows, then upload it to your Rookies profile and tag it #RookiesWeeklyDrills and #LightHouse.


Land Ahoy! Your challenge this week is to create a Lighthouse. The brief is open for interpretation which means you can choose your style. You could build something photorealistic, stylised, real-time, or even a 2D concept design. In terms of scale you could even build a toy lighthouse or create some crazy futuristic design that's the size of a planet. As usual, pay attention to scale, details, make sure to collect some good reference, and don't leave it until the last minute.

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.
