Enrico Cerica—the first-ever winner of the Render of the Week Award back in April—has done it again. With his new series of ultra-photorealistic render entitled "Urban Apartment"(http://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?255681-Urban-apartment), he has again set the standard for the Render of the Week Award.
So, please remember 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.
To improve your chance of nomination, please look at your render and ask: 'Does this look like a real photo or a well-made drawing? Does this have a story to tell or inspire a desire to be there or to have the items depicted therein?'
How, then, can you qualify for this award? Please submit your latest 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. A Vray render or any other render is fine as long as Blender was used as a part of your workflow.
So, it is with great pleasure that www.BlenderNews.org again have as the winner of the Render of the Week Award for the week of June 11, 2012: Enrico Cerica
Title: "Urban Apartment"
Genre: Architectural Visualization
About “Urban Apartment:”
My goal was to re-create a Parisian like apartment with some modern furniture but keeping some old stuffs like wooden parquet, windows, metal balcony or fireplace. It was also a good opportunity to deeply test Octane with interior archviz and find some tips to improve the result.
