Check out how an art director has found various places for Blender in his working "pipelines."
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 August 23, 2021: Nikolay Kvartnikov.
Title: "Smoking Pirate"
My name is Nikolay Kvartnikov and I work as an art director and CG artist at Fiero Animals studio.
Working as an art director and generalist is when you need to connect new tools or gain the necessary experience for a project. We are specializing in production of commercial CG and photo based imagery for the advertising and entertainment industries.
About "Smoking Pirate:"
For the two-year anniversary of how I quit smoking, I decided to make a personal project “Smoking Pirate” for the portfolio of our studio Fiero Animals.
Modeling, sculpting were done in Blender. Rendered in Blender Cycles. The treasure cave was created using Quixel Megascans and Sketchfab models. All the clothes in the Marvelous Designer. 4.
