‘Get Your Toon On’ Render Challenge Winners Announced

by | Aug 2, 2013 | 0 comments

Our latest rendering challenge has ended and the votes are in! We released KeyShot 4.1 this summer introducing a new Toon shader that can be used with any material or texture combo. We also introduced GrabCAD integration to push your renderings over to their platform. So, it made sense to team up with them for the ‘Get Your Toon On’ Render Challenge. With near 250 entries, users submitted a wide range of images and animation, narrowing it down to 22 who created amazing renderings and animations. The first place for best rendering and best animation walks away with a full license of KeyShot, with the honorable mentions also receiving prizes. To see all of the winning entries visit the challenge results page. Here are the entries for best rendering and best animation.

1st place animation

Wheel of Misfortune / Dries Vervoort
Dries submitted renderings and animations that were created completely in KeyShot. He provided insight to a lot of the process on the KeyShot forum and spent a great deal of time preparing this model for animation. It shows both an ingenious method for creating complex animations and makes great use of the toon shader and color with clean contour work.


1st place rendering

Operation Thinker! / Simon Williamson
Simon Williamson takes toon to the next level by including characters and bots he has modeled in a comic-style illustration. It’s beautifully laid out and uses a wide variety of colors, showing the strength of KeyShot to provide that illustrated appearance and strong contrasting shadows to give a lot of depth to the images.
