Even for a simple nature scene like above, few artists reach perfection. Check out the comments of this week's winner and figure out the secret "ingredient."
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 6, 2022: Cov Phillips.
Title: Appalachian Path
Genre: Environment Art
I’m Cov Phillips, a 21 year old 3D artist, teacher, and aspiring filmmaker. A couple years ago I fell in love with Blender and now I’m working primarily as an environment artist, but I’m also obsessed with all aspects of 3D!
About "Appalachian Path:"
Only about an hour from where I live begins one of the longest mountain ranges in the world, The Appalachians. I absolutely love this land and it’s been massively inspiring to almost all my outdoor renders, but especially this project as its a near identical recreation of one of my favorite trails. Without a doubt it was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever approached in 3D, but I learned so much throughout the process and it remains as my favorite creation so far.
