Back in July, I was contacted by ESL Gaming France to design and build a trophy for the Occitanie Esports 2020 cosplay contest. Given the nature of the contest, I went for a much more “homemade” look than the smooth trophies we are used to seeing. I designed a medieval-like stone tower, with fantasy elements like the swirling gold details and the rich-coloured central gem. I got to work with a variety of techniques, including 3D modelling, sculpting, moulding, casting, painting, and even leatherworking. No resin copy of the full award was produced, making this trophy a unique piece.
