Monumental Games has partnered with website 3d-for-games.com to launch an art competition for aspiring game artists.
Designed to replicate an authentic outsourcing art test, the competition requires entrants to model an current-gen quality environment asset based on reference images, complete with diffuse, specular and normal maps. Entries will be judged by Monumental's offshore manager David Tolley, with full feedback given.
More information on the competition can be found here. 3d-for-games is also looking for other development partners to help judge future competitions and help new artists enter the industry.
