Feudal Japan: The Shogunate ArtStation Challenge – Every Winner used Substance

Pierre Bosset on December 14 2018 | Community, News, Contest, Game, Film/VFX

With over 5000 participations, ArtStation’s Feudal Japan: The Shogunate Challenge gathered artists from all around the world. This record participation saw an incredible number of interpretations of medieval Japan come to life. Both the concept art and production categories boasted an intense level of creativity from the community.

This was obviously a feast for the eyes, and when ArtStation announced the winners of the challenge, we were happy to see that every single one of the 3D category winners used the Substance software in their texturing process. Here they are once again, congratulations to the winners and all participants, and kudos to ArtStation for hosting this formidable event.
