First place goes to “The Free Autonomous Republic of Dieselville” by Federico Ciuffolini.

Made with using 3ds Max, Corona Renderer, Substance Designer and Photoshop.

3D has been my passion for almost 15 years, and I’m proud to say that it has become my job. I’ve been doing photorealistic renderings for 7 years, and right now I’m working on interactive applications, augmented and virtual reality — Federico Ciuffolini .

He also shared a breakdown of this process…

Second place goes to “Second Chance” by Anton Hurnov.

Made with using 3ds Max, Houdini FX, Corona Renderer, Substance Painter, Zbrush, Unfol, 3d and Photoshop.

I work in the game industry more than 10 years, and the first part of this period I was a 3d animator, I like the process of animation and creating rigs and I try to practice this as often as possible, but beyond that I love a little bit more complex tasks, I can even say more global tasks with a big part of different detail. Thank God the industry is fully capable of satisfying my interests. — Anton Hurnov

Third place goes to “Lightage” by Florian Renner.

Made with using Cinema4d, Octane, SubstancePainter, 3DCoat and WorldCreator.

I am actually a graphic designer and have been using Cinema4d as support (for perspectives etc) for my illustrations since 2007, besides my permanent position. Later working with Cinema4d was so much fun that I started my own business in 2011. Since then I try to specialize my work in 3D visualizations and animation. I like trying out new 3D programs and have used the contest to learn software like 3D-Coat, Substance Painter and World Creator. — Florian Renner
