Creating a believable "ethnic" environment can be a challenge, especially if they are meant to be shown to international audience who might include people from that specific "ethnic" backgrounds. One way to do it is to invite some artists who have such cultural background. What if, however, such artists are not available? Check out how the winner for this week tried to do that on his own.
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.blenderartists.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 third-time-ever winner of the Render of the Week Award for the week of April 4, 2016: Sergio Raposo Fernández.
Genre: Environment Design
This is my latest artwork, an environment inspired by Middle East. I tried, that it doesn´t look as Aladdin, but obviously I didn´t succeed.
For this project I investigated on Internet the Arab culture. For example, the coffered arches is Moroccan, the adobe houses are more typical of Jordan, and the balcony, inspired by Jaisalmer, India. Persian rugs, Moroccan pottery, brass utensils and an Arab marquetry table.
