"Once a majestic display of scale, admired by everyone who saw it, now turned into a shell of it's former glory."

Welcome to our next team challenge, Fallen Giant.
Get ready to team up with other people and push other members of that team and other teams in this new challenge!

Sign-ups are open from the 5th June and will close on the 17th June. Participants will be carefully assembled into a team of 5 artists where you will push both your technical and soft skills to create an exceptional 3D game-ready environment that captures the aftermath of the events that unfolded during the siege of your chosen place.


The final results will be judged by an incredibly talented panel consisting of:

Lea Kronenberger - 3D Art Lead at Frictional Games

Nina Klos - Technical Artist at Sumo Digital

Ryan Lopez - Environment Artist at BitReactor



- Teams are made up of 5 artists, teams are assembled by the challenge organisers (we try, where possible, to arrange the teams to give the optimal experience by balancing factors such as time zones)

- There are both realistic and stylised teams

- The challenge is 5 weeks made up of; 1 week of setup, ideas, planning and blockout and 4 full production weeks. The complete timeline can be found in the calendar below.

- Teams will be provided with source control and starting resources, such as basic shaders, so you and your team can get up to speed quickly.

You can sign-up for the challenge without being a member of the community via the form. After sign-ups close we invite artist that meet the expectations to join the challenge.

By signing up you also get all the other benefits such as full access to the discord, Environment Art Tips and Tricks collection, Weekly Live Feedback Stream, Your art included in our weekly newsletter and more on top of your entry to the team challenge.


- The team challenge is a big commitment. You should carefully consider if you can dedicate the time for the duration of the challenge, taking into account work, education, and other commitments.

- Have a decent understanding of the core skills - Modelling, Texture, Lighting/Presentation and use of a game engine

- Must be able to commit at least 10 hours per week (that's roughly 3-4 evenings or 1 evening + 1 full day minimum)

- Actively communicate with your team

- Be flexible - Ideally, everyone gets to work on what they want but you may need to do some of the less hero work but that doesn't mean you can't make it worthy of sitting on your portfolio

- Little more flex - Teams are often made of multiple time zones, you may have to be a bit flexible to make meetings or figure out a system if you can't

- Be responsible for yourself - If you've committed to the team challenge you are expected to pull your weight. If you don't you will be removed from the challenge

- English - You'll need a basic level of spoken and written English to be able to communicate effectively with your team
