Ever since the contest evolved into a LIVE animation event, it has swept the 2D and 3D animation world in Asia with its charm.

Prior to the competition, the 2017 ASIAGRAPH Reallusion Award ran in 13 cities at China, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, and Taiwan.

After two months of intensive work and sharing, Reallusion and Polycount announce that the iClone 2016 3D Character Design Contest has finally come to an end with dozens of incredible character entries that have helped rewrite the 3D character design rules.

3D character design has proven to be one of the most challenging tasks for 3D artists, as creating fully animatable 3D characters often requires a multidisciplinary team. To address this Reallusion provided contestants with the iClone Character Creator tool, one of the most versatile 3D character solutions that has changed the character design workflow through a creation system that includes fast avatar slider morphing, free-to-dress capabilities, fully rigged face and body animation, along with multiple accessory usage for unlimited possibilities in one free, easy to use application.

Through great efforts Reallusion is honored to have joined forces with some of the best partners in the industry, allowing us to put forward amazing 3D design synergies to all would-be participants through generous prizes offered by an all-star list of contest sponsors. So let’s give a round of applause to all the winners and contestants, of the iClone 2016 3D Character Design Contest!
