You’ve no doubt noticed the extremely cool 3D models of tanks we’ve included in past articles, but you might not have known they were hosted on Sketchfab—a website used to display and share 3D models. We’ve now teamed up with Sketchfab to hold a World of Tanks themed contest, challenging 3D modelers to create a diorama inspired by your favorite tank game!
To enter, you’ll have to create a 3D diorama inspired by World of Tanks, but there’s plenty of room for creativity. Create a diorama that recreates an exciting moment from the game, but don’t feel obligated to perfectly recreate the game’s look. Be original and create it in your own style, just let the game inspire you!
Even if you aren’t a 3D modeling whiz, this contest gives you a perfect excuse to dive in and see what Sketchfab, and 3D modeling, is all about! Prizes include vouchers for Jinx gear and Sketchfab PRO licenses, and the best examples will be displayed right here on the World of Tanks portal.
* US entries are welcome! Jinx vouchers are redeemable in the US and Europe only.
Full details and rules can be found on the contest’s official page, along with a few helpful links to get you started on diorama creation.
Still not convinced? Take a look at one of the 3D models we’ve shared using Sketchfab, and an unrelated diorama to give you an idea of what’s possible:
