It's interesting that a considerable number of new top-notch Blender renders are being produced by a very specific type of professionals: Art directors! This week's winner turned out to be one of them.

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 October 29, 2018: Adam Skovran.

Artist's Comments
About Me: 
I’m Adam Skovran, currently working as a Junior Art Director for a corporation in product advertisement. I really like messing around in 3D. As of now, unfortunately, 
I just do it in my spear time, as I use mainly Photoshop for my full-time job. My ultimate goal is to find something in the 3D industry, maybe one day.

About "First Contact:"
This project is a spin-off of another project I worked on last year for the Blenderguru fantasy competition with a couple of friends of mine. I wanted to give an update to my alien creation that I did last year and challenge myself to see, if I can create something photorealistic, but seemingly out of this world. It was a lot of fun and learning.
