Some people seems to have a great potential hidden in them which is just waiting to be discovered--until they acquire the right skills and tools. The winner for this week seems to be one of them. Some of his former works created three years ago clearly shows that he was new to Blender and 3D art in general. His latest project, however, shows that he has acquired the right skills in a very short period of time.

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  May 5, 2014: Francis Harkins.

Artist's Comment
About Me: 
I'm Francis Harkins. I've always played with Blender as a hobby. I feel it's a great way to combine an interest in art and design with one of computing and physics.

About "Lanterns in The Forest"
This is one of the first renders I am happy with. It started as a mood/atmosphere study. My attention to detail was much higher than usual and I learned a lot during the process.
The textures are from CGtextures.com:
(I also created bump and specular maps from them)
