Can Blender be a good complimentary--or a main--tool for for your project? 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 October 19, 2015: Manuel Grad.
I’m a twenty-eight year old creative generalist and art enthusiast currently living in Munich, Germany.
I'm amazed by Blenders features and its excellent community, thus Blender is my tool of choice for 3D work.
Sintik was done as a final project for school. It's a title sequence for a fictional Thriller television series.
Everything was done in Blender with the exception of the two fluid simulations. They were done by my teammate Timo Socher with Houdini – I imported his raw simulation as a image sequence to Blender and rendered it out the same way as the other shots.
All names except the end credits are entirely fictional.
