There are not many competent 3D artists who also know computer coding. Nor are there many competent programmers who are also excellent CG artists. This week's winner seems to be one of those few. He is the coder for the Modular Tree addon.
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 August 13, 2018: Maxime Herpin.
I’m an engineering student living in France, with a huge passion for 3D and Blender.
Made in three days for the 788 edition of blender artists weekend challenge. When I saw the theme of the challenge, Poisonous, I envisioned a helpless creature having no choice but to poison itself with the mistakes of mankind. Having little time for the project, I sculpted the bird with dyntopo, and rigged the resulting high poly model. Most materials are a combination of procedural and image textures, and I made an extensive use of micro-displacement.
