Can you cross the "uncanny valley" with Blender? Check out the work 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, Eevee 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 June 28, 2021: Viriel Boyboy.
Title: Project Hina
Genre: Character Art
I’m Viriel Boyboy, 22 years old, 3D character artist from the Philippines.
About "Project Hina:"
I did this personal project to study and learn about rigging and animation using manual keyframing. I was inspired from a Japanese music video of a song I saw on YouTube. It took me a month to finish the project, that includes experiments and lots of trial and error and 4-6 hours of work everyday.
