Do some artists create stylized art because they cannot produced hyper-realistic models? Not necessarily--as the winner for this week has demonstrated. He is evidently an excellent sculptor and a good shader as his previous winning entries--including "Desiderio"--has demonstrated. Does such abilities help with stylized arts? Definitely, they are in full control of manipulating a model to make them look the way you wish--humorous, adorably, etc. As such, if you are pursuing stylized arts, why not demonstrate your abilities to create hyper-realistic arts in your portfolio as well?
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 24, 2017: Ismael Fuentes.
Title: "Holbein. The Hamster"
