Aiming to serve the needs of professional community of Blender users, BlenderNews.org doesn't go about looking for talented artists who are well known to be or claiming to be legal minors. From time to time, however, BlenderNews.org has bumped into artists with notable talents who turned out to be still in high school--while trying to discover and feature capable Blender artists ready to work. Such young artists with legal minor status have been introduced in the BlenderWhiz series with their parents consent. How are they doing, since not a few years have passed? Probably the most well known success story could be found in the winner for this week. After five years, he's now one of the lecturer at CG Cookie.
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.blenderartists.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 April 17, 2017: Jonathan Lampel.
Title: "Forgotten Temple Statue"
Genre: Environment Design
My name is Jonathan Lampel. And I'm currently a 3D artist at CG Cookie.
* His introduction 5 years ago, when he was discovered by BlenderNews.org as a Blender Whiz:
