As been demonstrated by the Blender Institutes' recent open movie COSMOS LAUNDROMAT, Blender can be a competent tool for a full-CGI-driven feature film. What other kind of "look" would be feasible, though, with Blender? Check out the work of this week's winner.
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. Any other render engine 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 November 2, 2015: Rico Cilliers.
Title: "Pirate Lady - Making Waves"
Genre: Concept Art
Geometries & Textures:
My name is Rico Cilliers, and I live in Pretoria, South Africa. I've been doing CG art and design for around 7 years now, I'm completely self-taught in many areas of digital art--from 2D painting and design to sculpting, modelling, texturing and animation. I'm currently doing freelance work as a 3D modeller and as a texture artist.
About "Pirate Lady - Making Waves:"
This artwork started as a simple modelling and texturing exercise, and gradually grew into a fully rendered scene. Pretty much like any kid with a wild imagination, I've always been fascinated by swashbuckling pirates and warriors, so this is a sort of "mash-up" of different movies, games and books that have made an impression on me during my childhood.
