Start off 2021 creatively!

Challenge yourself over 31 days with a set of 31 topics.
Sculpt every day and improve your sculpting skills.




How to Participate

  • Create a sculpting inspired by the topics we provide for each day of January 2021 (see list above)
  • Post images of your results on social media
  • Tag your posts with the hashtag #sculptjanuary and #sculptjanuary2021
  • If you get all 31 sculptings done in time, share a collage at the end of the month

Info & Advice

  • Sculpt in any medium (digital, clay or other)
  • The topics & categories are suggestions
  • Participate every day, every other day, one day each week or just do whatever is best for you
  • Set yourself deadlines or limitations (e.g. one hour per day)
  • Build up buffers (sculpting multiple topics a day is recommended)
  • Combine topics (sculpt an artwork incrementally one topic at a time)
  • Try out specific things (no time for grand projects)
  • Don’t be a perfectionist (the sculpts are allowed to be rough)
  • Reuse setups (like brushes, base meshes, lighting & rendering to save time)
  • Don’t spend too much time on materials, textures and rendering (it’s about sculpting)
  • Above all: Have fun and challenge yourself!

Never miss a challenge again!
