Blender is a tool worth exploring for professional studios and artists. Check out the result of one such exploration by a seasoned artist.

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 June 13, 2016: Manuel Grad.

Artist's Comment
About Me: 

About "Sci-fi City" (1):
Creating an apocalyptic sci-fi city scene in 3D was something I couldn't really see myself doing because of the vast complexity of the subject, models, and textures in such a scene. But with smart ways to tackle it, it is very much doable. This project was all about exploring techniques and ways which allowed me to finish such an independence-day-esque scene.
