An artist's exceptional familiarity of a subject--if not a thorough research--can lead to an exceptional art. Can you guess the geographical background 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 November 21, 2016: Mustafa Kurtay.

Artist's Comment
About Me:
My name is Mustafa Kurtay, from Istanbul. I work in packaging field mostly as a 2D graphic designer, Even though 3D/CGI is not exactly a part of my work, I love working on personal projects, learning along the road and enjoy keeping myself busy with Blender and its community. 

About "The WELL:"
I was inspired by Indian step-wells initially, then wanted to adopt the idea into a more simple environment, added an explorer into the scene. This diver goes in to the depths of the well, while surrounding by fishes, not sure how deep it is, as the cloudy green water gets darken and darken .... Project completion took around 1 month as I could only work on it when I'm off work.
