Among so many amazing renders realized in Blender in 2014 and featured as winners of the Render of the Week Awards, it might be disputable to pick just five among them. There were certainly many more that should have been featured again as winners of the Render of the Year Awards 2014. As you read the about the five winners,  please be mindful that other candidates for this award weren't necessarily a lesser artist than this years final winners. Their works, however, are a good reminder of what Blender can do for top notch studios and freelancers.



1. Best Blender Render:

Sanctuary Rising series

by Jesse Sutherland

Few CG renders can be described as "breathtaking." And Jesse's works were some of those few renders that definitely deserve such complement. It's interesting to see how Blender excels in particle-based nature scenes.
