Just by looking at an art, you already know much about the artist, even if you haven't met him/her. If you can't help but thinking how on earth did he/she do that, it might worth be learning who that is. And this week's winner is 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, 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 December 6, 2021: Ken Liang.

Title: "Flowers - in Love with a Ghost ft. Nori"

Artist's Comment
About Me: 
My name is Ken Liang, a 3D artist/CG generalist from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I’m also a co-founder of an indie game studio at Trippy Studios.
 
About "Survivor:"
This is by far my most ambitious video for a personal project to take on. On and off, I’d often listen to chill hop music on youtube while working that are always accompanied by some sort of looping 2D animated anime wallpaper. Sometimes I wonder, wouldn’t it be awesome if they were 3D, and would react to the sounds and beats of the music? Hence, the idea to make this music video was born.

I chose Flowers as the music of choice because I can never get tired of listening to it on an endless loop. It certainly made my job easier and more enjoyable because working on a project like this requires countless wip preview playback to ensure that the animations are in sync with the music.

I tried to animate as many details as I could for this project; the rain drops affecting the environment and everything getting wet over time, the rain causing realistic and believable ripples on the water, the lily pads floating and drifting randomly on the water surface and reacting to the ripples, lip syncing Hana’s (yes, that’s the name I’ve given her) mouth to the vocals, her expressions and body language reacting to the music, the clothes she’s wearing turning semi transparent from the wetness over time, water droplets dripping down the frogs, and much much more. Yet, there are still many more details that I wish I could add and refine but I had to draw the line somewhere or else it would take forever to finish.

I wanted to express the emotion and feeling that I get from listening to the music, and hope for the viewers to have the same experience too while watching the animated music video. Just let go of everything, forget about the world, and chill for a while.
