This summer we held a design competition where 3D artists took favourites from Beeple‘s daily work and brought them to life inside of VR, using Unity and then uploading to vrchat where people could visit these worlds together.
The submissions were impressive! Especially if using a Vive or Rift to check them out, although one can use a desktop as well if you have a good graphics card. By good I mean something like an nvidia 660 or better. If you’d like to visit any of these just go to Steam, download vrchat for free, sign up and start exploring. There’s a Worlds tab you can use to search for our Beeple Hub, or in the main hub you start in we’re currently featured.
I’ll start by posting the grand prize winner, who get a choice of a new vive or rift or cash! Then in the next post or two I’ll show off other creations, but the winner as chosen by Beeple himself is:
He used a few Beeple images as inspiration, the two main ones you’ll see below, and then added some of his own touches including an original alien avatar you could turn into if you manage to climb up top the tallest structure, no easy feat but many have managed. Stephen created a musical score for the scene and made a lot of great sounds that Jazz placed throughout. I highly recommend people download the app and visit in person.
Here’s some more of the many outstanding submissions…
