Talented digital matte-painters have made good use of Blender, as have 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.

Artist's Comments
About Me: 
I am a matte painter and environment artist, working for Pixomondo as head of environment, and currently living in Stuttgart, Germany.
I’m amazed by Blenders features and its excellent community, thus Blender is my tool of choice for 3D work.

About "Unseen Westeros: Golden Tooth:"
Golden Tooth, a small castle that has been home to many battles, the seat of House Lefford in the Westerlands, guards the hill road between the Westerlands and the Riverlands. I imagined it as a small, but though to defeat keep, proudly standing in the light of the setting sun and shining like a golden tooth in the midst of giant mountains.
This is one of three pieces I did for the exhibition “Unseen Westeros”.
The main idea behind this exhibition/art-book is to show all the beautiful places of Game of Thrones we couldn’t see in the series. I and over 40 artists worked on this ambitious project.

I used Blender for creating the castle and its walls and some other small stuff around it, the environment is mainly matte painting though.
