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 Abdul-mu'min Smith for his work "Creek."

Abdul-mu'min's Comments
About Me: 
I am 15 years old. I was born in Cincinnati and moved to Maryland where I stayed until I was 3 or 4 then I moved back to Ohio, where I did a lot of my growing up. You never know when you're making long lasting memories, but, looking back I can see how simple those times were and how much they influence me now in my work. I was never really that expressive with words, I've always been very emotional, which is why I chose visual arts as a hobby. I've been drawing since I was 6 then took a 3 year break around 12 years of age and got my footing in CG, now, 3 years later my influences have grown to architecture and photography. 

About "Creek:" 
The inspiration for this work came to me when I was running away into another thought of reminiscence; this one of how me and my siblings in the summer used to explore this creek that ran directly behind my grandmothers backyard. Though we spent a lot of time in the backyard as well as on the shed eating food fresh off the grill, the creek has always stood out as a fond memory, this is where I first became enthralled with nature which has now become one of my main influences in architecture.
