Many of the most popular views recorded on BlenderNews.org seem to center on architectural visualizations. Such popularity and interests no doubt owe to amazing works produced by talented artists utilizing Blender. Among them, the winner for this week is considered one of the top artists.
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 December 21, 2015: Enrico Cerica.
