Sometimes, the age of the artist could be as stunning as the art itself.

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 September 28, 2015: Simon Thommes.

Artist's Comment
About Me: 
I am a 19-year-old guy about to take up his physics studies in Aachen, Germany. I started using Blender around 5 years ago and developed a focus on trying to achieve photo-realism in my 3D artworks.

About "Out for a Waltz:"
It was a personal project with which I wanted to improve my sculpting abilities. The idea for this setting came from a music video I watched. I instantly liked the lighting and the overall atmosphere and thought that I should try it in 3D. The majority of the textures are created procedurally with nodes, because for me it means a lot more control of how the material will appear.
