A long-timer might remember what Blender was like 15 years ago. One of such artists tells his story of how and when he came to use Blender.

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 December 7, 2020: Balázs Gräff.

Artist's Comment
About Me: 
I’m a 41-years-old Senior Designer in an iGaming company. Actually, I was working in advertising agencies for more than 15 years and I was always interested in 3D designs,
drawing, etc.
I was following Blender development since the beginning but, at that time, it was very different and I chose 3D Studio. Last year I wanted to use 3D software, after a few years’ stop, 
I saw Blender become a really nice software. I still need to understand and learn a lot of things about materials.

About "Mole Monster:"
Mole Monster a creature that is living under the ground, between rocks. I made a practice to learn Sculpting in Blender and I was amazed how user friendly it is to use this feature 
in Blender too.
For texturing I used Substance Painter and, for post-pro, Photoshop for Colour correction and small retouching.
