Availability of accessible & clear tutorials may play a vital role in the popularity of a digital tool. Check out the comment from 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, 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 July 9, 2018: Bohdan Lvov.
Title: "Steampowered Steed"
My name is Bohdan Lvov, I’m a 3D artist from Zaporizhia, Ukraine. Since beginning of my timeline I was interested in effects, trickery and all sorts of stuff; those making-of movies about VFX always mesmerized me, and that’s the reason why I’ve chosen CG as the path in my life. And it’s actually started with Blender, way back with really old versions released in 2006 or 2007, but back then I were unable to understand it and switched to 3ds max, after that to Maya, and only 10 years later, in 2017 - back to Blender, which this time became my main package. Just because it’s awesome. I don’t have formal art education, and completely self-taght, because otherwise it would be too easy, right?
About "Steampowered Steed:"
This is a small and fast vehicle dedicated as an escort for a wagon, and all that quick missions. At one point, it was even a steam motorcycle!
This was done for WIld West Challenge on Artstation. Concepts by Alex Thomas (https://www.artstation.com/no87 1) were used for that.
