FIRST PRIZE WINNER ANNUAL RENDER CONTEST 2011 – Jörg Jobmann from Germany!

It was the overall verry creative idea of the subject / render that made me choose for Jörg’s winning the contest.

Beneath you see his winning render (clicking on the thumbnail popups a bigger version.)

3D Render

Perhaps interesting to know:

On a day had a discussion with a guy I know in the Netherlands…. and told him that Messerschmitt made to nice little cars after the war (because the were forbidden to make any airplanes after the second World War as you probably will know)….. the guy was surprised to hear that info he did not knew that….. several hours later I received Jorg’s Messerschmitt render… isn’t’ that some amazing coincidence?!
