What other animation style would be feasible with Blender other than that of the Cosmos Laundromat? 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 September 7, 2015: Julian Santiago.
Genre: Production Design
I am a 3D generalist who works on TV commercials in the Philippines. I have worked in the industry for 4 years now.
This image was created as an entry to the THU (Trojan Horse was a Unicorn) Golden Ticket Challenge with the theme of "The Tribe." With this image, I was able to land 3rd place. I had used Blender in the past as a secondary application for my previous 3D projects, but this is the first time that I used Blender as the main application. It is also my first use of the Cycles render engine. In a way, I made this project in Blender to test if my knowledge of Blender is production-ready.
