Blender can be a good choice for VFX needs. Check out the work of this week's winner.

How, then, can you too qualify for this award? Please have in mind that this award is reserved for those that are on par with or that excel top notch works published by artists and studios. If such work does not appear during a given week, this award is not being given to anyone. So please submit your best  work to www.blenderartist.org or to the Member's Gallery of this site, or Contact Us to show where your work is available on the internet. It doesn't have to be a Blender render, internal or Cycles. Any other render engine is fine as long as Blender was used as a part of your workflow.

So, it is with great pleasure that www.BlenderNews.org introduces to you  the winner of the Render of the Week Award for the week of May 4, 2015: Manuel Grad.

Making-of

Artist's Comment
About Me: 
I’m a twenty-eight year old creative generalist and art enthusiast currently living in Munich, Germany. Since October 2014 I am studying Animation and Visual FX at the BAF in Munich. I am amazed by Blenders features and its excellent community, thus Blender is my tool of choice for 3D work.

About "Ancient Relic:"
This was my first try at Digital Matte Painting. I used Photoshop, Nuke and Blender. The sculpting, texturing, shading and rendering with Blender/Cycles was a breeze and I'm really pleased with the outcome.
