Besides "Green Woods", a number of notable renders have appeared among the submissions for the Blenderguru Competition. Although not nominated as the sole winner, they certainly deserve some attention in one way or the other. So is the winner for this week who have produced an enchanting render with Blender Internal. 

How, then, can you too qualify for this award? Please remember that this award is reserved for those that are on par with or that excel top notch works published by artists and studios. So please submit your top notch 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 August 6, 2012: Radoslaw Marcin Kurczewski.

Artist's Comments: 
About Me:
I am a lead 3d artist at Turbosquid. Since it means more and more management work to stay sharp (and up to date) I am still trying to hone my skills in my spare time. I've started learning Blender some time ago, when I was jobless and without enough money to buy Maya I used to work in. Ever since then I am working with it and I have never regreted that move.

About "HMS Ajax:"
Apart from doing models in 3D I am also a ship modeler. This one started long time ago as a kind of an "evaluation project"-- I wanted to make sure plans I found on the net are accurate before investing time and effort into building a model. Naturally, after doing a hull I have dropped the 3d project. It served its purpose but it made no point to go any further beyond that point, until the very moment when I have found the note about "Realism" contest. I've started from scratch once again, this time paying much more attention to details of rigging, equipment and such. My inspiration was "Master and Commander" and XIX c. marine paintings--thus color paletter and long format.
