One of the biggest Blender news from this week likely is the announcement that Brecht van Lommel--a key Cycles developer--is leaving Blender Institute to join Solid Angle to work on the Arnold renderer. Some have already voiced concerns over future Cycles development. But will this be a blessing or a curse? Only time will tell. No matter how it turns out, it is obvious that Blender artists already have a potent tool at their disposal, as this week's winner demonstrates with his work of CG human character.
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 June 16, 2014: Kalinin Dmitrii.
Title: "Yet Another Child of Frankenstein"
Genre: Character Design
Hi. My name is Kalinin Dmitrii. I'm a 3D character artist, maybe a generalist. I live and work in Russia.
About "Yet Another Child of Frankenstein"
I'm done with this character at last. Started half a year ago, but was constantly switching to other projects, leaving no time for this one. Now there is time , and here's the result. Blender 2.69. Cycles.
