Other than arch viz, one of the most attractive use of Blender that the industry has recognized would be its support for 3D printing, along with its own set sculpting tools that is more than enough for latest 3D printing resolutions. And this week's winner is probably at the cutting edge of using Blender for sculpting and 3D printing.

How, then, can you qualify for this award? Please remember 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. Please submit your latest 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 renderer 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 May 26, 2014: Kfir Merlaub:
 
Title:  "Death Taker'
 Genre: Character Design
 Renderer: Blender's realtime GLSL
