Sometimes the artist's background can be as much amazing as his/her artwork itself.

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  August 28, 2017: Matej Balážik.

Artist's Comment
About Me: 
My name is Matej Balážik, I am from Slovakia and I am 32 years old. I have been working with 3D from 2004 till today. I was always passionate about creating something. At first, it was 3D Studio MAX, but I immediately fall in love with Blender in 2012, when I got my hands on it.
I'm currently working as a marketing manager for middle Europe in Germa company DEKRA. 

About "Trouble at the Playground:"
This artwork was created using Blender Cycles. At first, it was a modeling exercise and a shader test, but as I progress, I started to like that idea. I used techniques such as microdisplacement, HDRI lighting, sculpting and several PBR shaders. It tells a story of an unhappy lego man, who underestimated the power of fire.
