First up is James Shedden's wonderfully mystical "In another world". James Shedden's Iconic style, which can be described as dreamy, tactile, enigmatic, and a hundred words is between, is immediately recognizable and unique. James uses a combination of Blender, Photoshop, EbSynth and After Effects to achieve the overall style, the core of which lies in how smartly he lies out his scenes, materials, and animations.
Next up is Gensho Yasuda's "ちょっと忘れ物", another incredible entry by a Blender artist with a unique style honed over the years. Gensho Yasuda has mastered the art of making incredible anime-style anime artworks all within Blender, using a combination of brilliant shading work, and smart camera movements, and judicious animation. Check out their youtube channel and Twitter for a wealth of this type of artwork, with the occasional breakdown.
Next up is Egyptian motion graphic designer Omar Waleed's "You can't escape". This piece stemmed from Omar's desire to produce a piece with a "Cinematic" feel, to great effect. The symmetric composition and lighting provide a natural vignetting effect leading the eye to the Lovecraftian monster guarding the "viewer".
Digital Artist James Tralie is no stranger to great environment work, so much so that the Blender environment-centric tutorials on his youtube channel have garnered tens of thousands of views. His latest work "Lazy River" boasts all of this environment-making knowledge, with great lighting composition, and overall photorealistic render quality.
Last but not least is the "Ancient houses" artwork by Reddit user twin_house, a fascinating concept piece. The eponymous "houses" sport great shading work, really selling the realism of the piece. The rocks used are taken from the Megascans library.
