Vray has been a standard renderer for the CG industry. And thanks to Andrey (M. Izrantsev; http://vray.cgdo.ru/), Blender users have been able to use it to some extense. With increasing number of professionals switching to Blender, it could be a high time for Chaos Group to consider releasing Blender-specific Vray plugin or addon. Even with the limited portability of the lastest addon written by Andrey, this week's winner was able to produce an enchanting art with Blender & Vray.
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. A Vray render or any other render 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 October 8, 2012: Cristian Enache.

About "Fantasy Ambient:"
Everything started with a contest on the blog: "I want to learn V Ray", which had to deal with a fantasy-Gothic style scene. For various reasons I could not join it, so I decided to present it at www.Blenderartists.org. The source of inspiration was the television series Game of Thrones, which has spectacular scenes. The entire scene was done with the 2.62 Edition blender-Vray.
