How early did you start learning 3D? Check out 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. 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.

Artist's Comment
About Me: 
My name is Josiah Swaim, I am a self-taught digital artist. I started playing around with 3D modeling at around 10-11 years old when I wanted to add some "spice" to little video projects I was making. Around 12 years old I found Blender 3D and have been using it ever since. (I'm 21 years old now.)

About "Canada to Send First Pug into Space!"
I call it "Canada to Send First Pug into Space!" to make it sound like an absurd news article. The pug himself, however, is named Ace Gunpin, which is an anagram for Pug Canine. This project was a Christmas present for my girlfriend, who loves pugs and sci-fi, so I spliced them together.
