The competition

The wind starts carrying everything away, and September brings a weird happiness. Yes, for some of us, the end of summer marks the begin of something. As we get back to our duties, we feel refreshed, and we start making plans.

So, why not starting with a good challenge?
Nature, Architecture, Still Life. It's up to you to unleash your imagination in this Autumn-themed modeling & rendering competition.

Bertrand Benoit

3D Artist \ ArchViz

Like his mother, an acclaimed French painter, Bertrand Benoit has always felt a powerful urge to draw. But it wasn't until the mid-2000s that he turned to CG as his main medium.

In the past decade, he has been recognized with several awards, including the 2010 CGArchitect Award. His work has appeared in such publications as the New York Times, Exclusive, CLOG, and Sharp Magazine.

Once briefly active as a commercial Archviz artist, Bertrand is now focused on pursuing personal CG projects and building his commercial 3D asset collection. His tools of choice include 3ds Max, Chaosgroup’s V-Ray and Corona, Octane and FStorm.

Massimo Gnocchi
