Here my monthly list of my favourite threads at Blender Artists Forums:
Hotel Napoli by -TheAmiMan-
I liked this internally rendered (!) city scene because of its high level of detail and nice and realistic look. The good texturing and lightning allows this look and shows that you don’t need external renderers like Lux or Indigo to get this atmosphere.
Ta 154A-0 in studio by mrys
This render of a Focke-Wulff Moskito is very impressive because of the extremely realistic texturing, making the result realistic even with a very simple studio lightning and scene.
Naruto figurines french collection by CaptainCavern
These nice examples of human character design impressed me because they look very human and natural, have a strong character and still look simple and have a comic-style, looking good without any complex texturing.
Bobby, the little octopus by weilynn
This cool guy (made by the creator of the 2.49 splah, btw) shows good use of material and texturing combined with great sculpting, creating a contrast between the cute shape and colors of the skin and the dark character shown by the dark eyes, the mouth and of course the cigar. Some more abstract work of weilynn: Twisted tree
I like these TV ads because this little gecko is really well-animated and his lumbering behaviour gives him a clear and funny character. As usual, good quality of work by ProMotion Studios, showing what’s possible in Blender.
