Composition and lighting are some of the key elements that separate top-notch renders from others. Check out the work of this week's winner. Would you be able to pull off something like this, even if you have best models available?
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 March 13, 2017: Reynante Martinez.
Title: "After the Rain"
Genre: Digital Illustration
About 'After the Rain':
This project was a fun attempt at revamping and remaking one of the abandoned scenes of The Cycles Material Vault's Cinematic Trailer (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQaV1yhFID4). The old one just felt too bland and thought it might be good to recreate the scene, while still utilizing Maciek Ptaszynksi's car model (with permission).
