Last week, there have been some amazing Blender renders released online, mostly on product and architectural visualizations. So please tune in to see some of them featured either in the ARCHITECTURAL VISUALIZATION IN BLENDER or PRODUCT VISUALIZATION IN BLENDER series. Among such renders, the honor of the Render of the Week Award for this week has gone to an architectural student who has created an enchanting digital environment fit for a feature film.
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 November 12, 2012: Dion Moult.
Title: "Wheelchair House"
Genre: Environment Design
My name is Dion Moult, an architecture student. More of my works are available on my blog, http://thinkmoult.com/
About "Wheelchair House:"
Wheelchair house was done as part of an architectural visualization render to communicate an uneasy atmosphere given by an extremely complex machine-like environment. It was also quite rushed for a deadline, but I am happy with the result nonetheless.
Render time was about a couple of hours at full resolution, and rendered with Blender and Cycles. Materials were quite simple, given the time limitations, so things were very messily unwrapped (most were just projected from view), and given a basic diffuse and bump map.
