Improved portability of Blender with other tools, apparently, are offering artists coming from other tools new opportunity to polish their existing works.
How, then, can you qualify for this award? Please remember 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. Please submit your latest 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 renderer 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 March 17, 2015: Alexander Gluhachev
Genre: Concept Art
My name is Alexander Gluhachev. I live in the city of Stavropol, Russia. I'm a working level designer in the project multi-player shooter Cyclop.
The "Arachnid" is a personal project of mine. Thinking of what would work out in the modeling and visualization, I have long wanted to do something unusual of the robot. I started mmodeling the spider a year ago, but it ended up laying idle in one of my hard drives for a long time. The scenes were rendered in Cycles in layers, collected post-processed in Photoshop. For lighting, three lights were used with with varying intensity and temperature.
