A notable phenomenon has been noticed by www.BlenderNews.org, while contacting potential nominees for the Render of the Week Award or artists for 'Architectural/Product Visualization in Blender' series. Some of the creators of amazing or professional quality renders turned out to be young people still in high school! It turned out that this is not an isolated incident. Should they and their works be dismissed, since the Render of the Week Award or the 'Product Visualization in Blender' series or is for adults who can "afford" to work as freelancers and studios?
Recently some of them have been introduced in an article entitled "Blender Whiz." It has been decided that "Blender Whiz." will be featured as a series, whenever such talented young artists are discovered. Studios and directors, keep your eyes on these young talents as your potential future employees!
So, it is with great pleasure that www.BlenderNews.org introduces to you Marco Cheng for his work "McLaren Studio." Marco has just turned 18 last March. So he is a legal adult, although he is still in high school.

Title: "McLaren Studio"
Genre: Environment Design
Renderer: Cycles

Final Render:

Marco's Comments

About Me: 
I'm Marco Cheng, an 18-year-old student from Hong Kong. I started creating artworks in Blender from 2012 on.

About "McLaren Studio:" 
The concept of this render was conceived as follows: One day, I was working in my school’s studio and It dawn on me that seeing through the camera's monitor and the real object at the same time would be very interesting. So I started out creating this render. The lighting is similar to that of the real studio itself.
After modeling all the props, I chose Cycles render engine for a more realistic result. For the Canon 5D Mark II's monitor image, I use a previously render as a texture. For the composition of the render, I kept the overall image dark except the car and the monitor so that people would focusing on these 2 parts at the first glance.
The total polygon counts are bout 2,300,000 in this scene(with a lots of extra details behind the camera to affect the reflection). It took about 17 hours to render this image out with a
4-core iMac in 4K.
