Some of the veterans in the industry can go back so far that they started their journey into 3D graphics even before 3dsMax and DOS arrived! It's interesting to note how one of such veterans in the industry came to view Blender.
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.
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 22, 2018: Saul Barreto.
Title: Creature Animation Test
Genre: Concept & Animation
I'm Saul Barreto--a 3D Generalist. I've been working for more than 20 years in the 3D industry. I really enjoy doing all the aspects related to animation, from modeling and animation to lighting, rendering, and compositing. I was hooked into this world since I saw the movie TRON in 1982. I've been working as a Generalist in many different projects; you can find some of my work in my website www.saulbarreto.com
I've "discovered" Blender 2 years ago, and it has become my favorite tool for my personal projects. Its such an amazing software, I'm really proud to be a part now of this wonderful community.
Currently, I'm working at Jellyfish pictures in London as a lighting and compositing supervisor.
About "Creature Animation Test:"
It's part of a much ambitious project, a short film that I'm currently working in. In the above animation, I wanted to test the rig and explore the look of the environments.
