AI applications are only beginning to materialize. It's so exciting what neural networks will do to art workflows in the coming years.

Send us your story of getting into the game industry and get yourself a free 6 months subscription to Quixel Megascans and Quixel SUITE 2.

Getting into games industry for artists is always some sort of quest. We’ve talked with artists all over the world, and learned a bunch of crazy success stories. But we want to know more. That’s why we partnered with Quixel and arranged this little contest: Tell us how did you become a game artist? Maybe you were influenced by the video game, 3d artist or some specific work?

Share your stories in comments below or in the #story-contest channel in our Official Discord Server ➡️  https://discord.gg/pugwUcn. Also, you can send your story to contest@80.lv!

After 7 days, we will choose 3 exciting stories, whose authors will receive prizes from 80lv and Quixel.

The prizes (everyone gets all, so no first/second place):

  • Freelancer 4K License of Megascans + 250 points – This is a 6-month subscription with access to Megascans library. The subscription also includes Megascans Studio, an application that allows you to customize and blend surface scans to create stunning tileables, and Megascans Bridge, an application that allows you to easily manage all your scans on disk, and export to any renderer. 
  • Full Quixel Suite 2 (including DDO, NDO and 3DO) – a texturing tool with a huge scan based material library and a responsive, fluid 3D painter made for PBR. It is a highly customizable, user-friendly, and fully Photoshop integrated texturing suite.

Megascans is the world’s largest online scan library containing thousands of standardized and physically based surface scans, vegetation scans and 3D scans.
