GAME-U is proud to announce Bradley Ritter and Andrew Moots as the winners of our first-ever Computer Modeling Contest!
As winners, both Bradley and Andrew will receive all of the following:
1. One $25 Gift Card for either iTunes, Amazon, or GameStop (their choice)
2. A 3D Print of their model
3. A showcase for their virtual 3D Model on GAME-U’s web site, Facebook site, and in-studio displays
Contestants were asked to choose any object in their house to model as realistically as possible. Subject options included (but were not limited to): bottles, cans, cartons, appliances, furniture, dishes, electronics, plants, lamps, and toys. Contestants’ models were required to be 100% original creations, and 3D scanning was prohibited. No copying/pasting, or modifying of anyone else’s work was permitted in any way.
Bradley Ritter won our 11-13 age bracket with his model of a motorcycle. After Bradley achieved his Design It: Apprentice I rank, he pushed on through Build It: Apprentice I, mastering many different techniques for constructing a variety of virtual models. It was thrilling to watch him apply these new skills as he built his motorcycle model from the ground up. Way to go Bradley!
Andrew Moots won our 14-16 age bracket with his model of a Piano & Piano Bench. By attending GAME-U sessions several days per week, Andrew quickly achieved the rank of Design It: Apprentice I, then branched out into multiple areas of study. He’s fast becoming proficient in several game design disciplines, including Programming, Design, Animation and Modeling. Andrew’s piano provided plenty of challenges, offering both smooth curves and hard, angled surfaces. Great job Andrew!
