"ZBrush today helps Game artists with extraordinary vision achieve that vision by providing a medium to “concept sculpt” rather than sketch.  Multi-resolution modeling, 3D layers, Gravity Brush modifiers,  Transpose, Mesh Extraction  and more make it easy to experiment without ever becoming locked into a decision.  PolyPainting enables the artist to paint while sculpting so that the color map matches the sculpted details.  Cavity masking enhances additional painting by telling the brush to ignore highs or lows in the sculpt.  And this painting can all be done before a single UV has been laid out!  Of course, no artist today would dream of creating a hero game character without normal maps and this is where ZBrush brings its trademark high resolution detailing to the economy demanded by Dominance War.  In DW1 the grand prize went to a ZBrush artist, Vitaley Naymushin.  In DW3, three out of the top five winners (that we know of) used ZBrush, including the Ultimate 3D Champion, Dmitry Parkin. 

ZBrush has been empowering game artists for many years now.  It is therefore Pixologic’s extreme pleasure to be able to help sponsor what promises to be the world’s most intense exhibition of game talent:  Dominance War V."

This year, as in Dominance War I all the way back in 2006, only a few prizes and letters of congrats will be given by our sponsors to commemorate your work and outstanding achievements. There will be no cash prizes. If you make it in the top 25 standings, or become best for your team through process of public votes, the exposure alone is worth more than any prize that can be provided. A big thanks goes out to our sponsors who are looking forward to congratulating the champions of this war.


Pinchbot Collectibles will create 100 unit toy runs of 3 of the top 3D entries!**  Each winner will receive 3 copies of his/her collectible or 3 collectibles of their choice from the store.  The top 3 winners will also receive royalties for each statue sold on the Pinchbot online store!  We will also be awarding the remaining top 10 3D winners a statue of their choice from the Pinchbot online store.  Good luck to everyone!!
