First place: Porcelain 1911 by Yi Sun What the jury says:
Jeremie Noguer: “Original idea and flawless execution”.
Yurii Lebediev: “I love it! When I look at this render I remember feeling when I held porcelain mini figurines of animals of my granny. This is so nice and so good done!”
Zacharias Reinhardt: “What a combination! Combining a hard and deadly weapon with something filigree as porcelain. The shape and materials with all the painted details, totally sells it”.
Dominik Capodieci: “Interesting idea and nice shading and lighting”.
Tom Grimes: “I have a soft-spot for juxtapositions, putting two things together that would never normally be found together. A porcelain gun! With beautiful patterning just like on the fine China that only gets used on Sundays. Almost surreal!”
Remi Arquier: “I love the concept and the detailing – a lot of work went into taking this outside the box”.
Second place: Under Cover Paranoia by Nicolas Berger
What the jury says:
Yurii Lebediev: “Absolutely unique ‘gun’! Very nice render! Enormous attention to details!”
Zacharias Reinhardt: “This is probably the most disgusting weapon I have ever seen, but that is what it makes so great! The weapon design is great (in a weird way) and looks like it is straight out of an alien movie. The image is technically well executed and I especially like all the tiny realistic details. Now I know hat will haunt me in my nightmares ;)”
Remi Arquier: “You don’t see much Cronenberg fan art these days, and this one stood out in concept and execution”.
Third place: The Stopper by Kimmo Kaunela
What the jury says:
Arseniy Korablev (Teya Conceptor): “My favorite artwork in the competition. This nomination is needed at least to highlight such authors. Beautiful colors, interesting weapon. I want to pick up it and run with it :) The only thing that bothers me is a slightly blurry render, possibly due to DOF, antialiasing or image interpolation settings”.
Jeremie Noguer: “The slight stylization works well, lighting and environment are on point”.
Deuce Bennett: “I’m a sucker for post-apocalyptic, kitbash, and steampunk. This weapon tells me a story, and I love it”.
Special prize from Fox Renderfarm: Decimator MK1 by Malchus
What Fox Renderfarm says:
“Great lighting, overall atmosphere is good, warm and cool colors contrast highlights the theme, so that viewers would instantly focus on the main object at first glance. The gun is perfectly blended into the picture, but still manages to stand out. Model, texture and lighting, overall is perfect”.
Congratulations to all the award-winning artists and Fox Renderfarm hope to help more 3D artists to create their masterpieces.
