Few time-lapse videos of modelling in Blender have amazed the viewers like that of this week's winner, demonstrating Blender capability as a full-fledged modelling tool. As such, his render was chosen for this week although some might argue against artistic excellence of the final render itself.
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. A Vray render or any other render 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 April 1, Damien Monteillard.
