A crucial part of good projects is concept arts, the importance of which can never be over-emphasized. Maybe not even that for a prop.
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 January 19, 2015: Wing Wai Sze.
Title: "Dark Silver Straight Sword"
Genre: Concept Art
I Have been using Blender for about 5 years. One of the reasons that I enjoy about making CG is definitely the ability to make things and scenes that don't exists. Making awesome sights that capture the moment of first time is particularity rewarding. Besides sci-fi and fantasy, I also like to make architectural and product renders to expand my skill.
About "Dark Silver Straight Sword"
The goal of this project is to make a majestic fantasy sword and a little bit of sci-fi element ( if you look closely to the glowing pattern, it looks like a spaceship hull line). It also needed to look realistic both in term of render and design. The lighting and post compositing is one of the most important step to bring all the element together, especially the mood and showing of detail.
