Who are these obviously seasoned Blender modelers? Where do they come from? We can find the answers at least about one of them, who are this week's winner.
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 returning winner of the Render of the Week Award for the week of April 11, 2016: Juho Salila.
Geometries & Textures
My name is Juho Salila. I'm a Finnish 3d-artist. I'm the co-founder of Almost Human Ltd, the creator of Legend of Grimrock 1 & 2. I was the art director for both games.
The goal of the project was to test the awesome HardOps addon by Masterxeon1001 and the pipeline of texturing a model in Substance Painter and then rendering it in Cycles using a PBR shader by Tynaud. It's pretty simple modeling and texturing. Most of the work to get the look was done in Photoshop. Here's a link to short video of the compositing stages: https://youtu.be/5IuO-vVomz0
