One of the most promising features yet to come with Blender is hair & fur rendering in Cycles. While the studios and professionals might be too busy to try out the various experimental versions of Blender released almost daily at graphicall.org. Some of the "pioneering" Blender artists are releasing amazing test renders that give us a fore glimpse of what will soon be possible in future editions of Blender. And this week's winner is one of them.

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 January 21, 2013: Tyler Aschenbrenner.

Title: "The Holiday Emu"
Genre: Concept Art

Artist's Comment
About Me: 
My name is Tyler Aschenbrenner. I am 22 years old and live in Appleton Wisconsin, U.S.A. I started using Blender as a hobby in June 2012. 

About "The Holiday Emu:"
I made this emu to test out the Cycles Strand Rendering Patch. I got some encouraging results just adding fur to a sphere but decided that I should take it to the next level and make a character to show off just how beautiful the fur could look.
