Submit the piece to the contest by tagging (#KB3Dchallenge on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Artstation). Details of the contest rules and prizes are on the site.

I discovered Kitbash3d years ago. They were offering high quality model kits that were mostly aimed at high-end 3D users, artists, VFX and concept/story board illustrators. The packages come in different software formats. [3DS Max, Blender, Cinema4D, FBX + OBJ, Houdini, MAYA, Unity, Unreal]. My main software is Daz Studio so I usually download the Unreal or Blender version and export to OBJ+ Texture files. At around $199 USD it’s a solid deal for the amount and variety of pieces that come with any set. For me, there was no hesitation with jumping in on this contest. Their kits were already part of my asset library and the Mission to Minerva offering would be an easy addition.

The follow-up story to the graphic novel The God of Fury took place at an army-like basecamp. I found the overall layout inspirational and some of the elements, like the radar towers, figure prominently in the story. The Transport and Rover are key vehicles. I need a lot of functionality from the assets I use for my comics. Kitbash3d does a wonderful job of supplying models that look great up close and they have now implemented texture sizes as a choice. I’ll be sharing my comic book entry across all my social media profiles. Thank you for your support.
