ZBrush Jack-O-Lantern Challenge

  • This year sees inclusion of another on-site ONLY ZBrush sculpting challenge. The Jack-O-Lantern Challenge gives attendees a chance to jump into the digital clay experience LIVE on the grounds of the Gnomon School in Hollywood, California.
  • Share the spotlight with other members of the ZBrush community and your favorite artists from around the globe. Participants will have 15 minutes to create an original Jack-O-Lantern sculpture using a pre-sculpted digital clay pumpkin.
  • The Jack-O-Lantern Challenge will run LIVE across all three days of the ZBrush Summit. Come one, come all and show off your sculpting chops! If you are planning on attending the 2023 ZBrush Summit you can practice now by downloading the ZBrush Jack-O-Lantern files used during the challenge.
