Blender's success can partly be attributed to its own availability and that of quality tutorials easily accessible for all. Note the age 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. 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 introduces to you the winner of the Render of the Week Award for the week of March 5, 2018: Yuditya Afandi.
Genre: Character Modeling
My name is Yuditya Afandi. Born in 1999. Passionate in 3d modelling, sculpting, and retopology. Big fan of Taylor Swift.
Personal project based on a concept by Yungun Y. In this project, I tried out some of the new features in Blender such as denoising and filmic color space. I used Cycles to render this artwork, except for the subsurface scattering which was done in Blender Internal. Using textures from Poliigon, though most of them are hand painted. It's almost a 1-to-1 recreation from the concept by Yungun Y, aside from some tweaking that I made. Learned a lot from this project, especially in the modeling part.
