A notable phenomenon has been noticed by www.BlenderNews.org, while contacting potential nominees for the Render of the Week Award. 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 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 Caleb Joseph. for his work "Morning River." Caleb is in his "second last year of high school."
Title: "Morning River"
Genre: Environment Design
View-port Render & Textures:
I am a student from Australia who enjoys 3D modelling as a hobby. I’ve been using Blender for almost five years now, mainly interested in the creation of natural landscape scenes. I am constantly seeking to improve my abilities, and appreciate any and all feedback! If you’d like to see other work of mine, I have a deviantART page at: http://dobz116.deviantart.com/
About "Morning River:"
I created this as I wanted to see how much detail and realism I could put into a 3D environment. I had wanted to complete a full scene for a while, but had not had enough motivation or time. The Christmas break seemed like a perfect opportunity to achieve something! I used Blender and ngPlant for all the modelling, and Blender’s Cycles engine for rendering. The final rendered image uses 102,218,406 polygons.
