Check out these awesome fan art pieces by our fellow artists.
You might like it or not but these final months of 2021 on the Internet will be all about the Squid Game series, Netflix's biggest-ever TV show. The series is set in modern-day South Korea where 456 desperate contestants compete in death games for the grand prize of 45.6 billion won.
Netflix paid $21.4 million for the nine-episode series and they now expect the series to generate $891 million, more than 40 times in what they call "impact value."
We've decided to collect some of the best 3D works inspired by the show. Let's have a look!
First, check out a portrait of Jung Ho-Yeon sculpted and rendered in ZBrush by Vimal Kerketta:
And here's another great model of Ilnam from the series by Kerketta (no spoilers please):
Take a look at an awesome stylized diorama in Blender by 80 Level friend Kassondra Krahn.
"Been pretty obsessed with Squid Game lately so wanted to make a miniature world of it! Modeled in Maya and rendered in Blender Cycles."
Here's another great sculpt of Saebyeok from Squid Game that was sculpted and rendered by Dan Eder entirely in ZBrush (about 2.5 hours in total).
Artist Aaron Cruz decided to recreate honeycomb candies from the series in 3D and add new shapes.
"Had an idea of recreating the honeycomb candies from the show in CG/3D, and replacing the iconic cutter shapes with Filipino-themed objects (Jeepney, Tarsier, and Katol) to add a bit of fun. Took about 6 hours of my Saturday to complete. So I hope you guys enjoy it, as much as I did making it."
Jaeyeon Nam shared an adorable stylized piece with pink soldiers from Squid Game.
And here's one more work: a material made of masks from the show made in Substance Designer by Dave Miragliotta.
