James Horn has entered the Master and Servant 2D.

Challenge Page (http://www.cgnetworks.com/challenge/masterandservant/view_entries.php?challenger=5865)

Latest Update: Final Image: The Servant King
http://www.cgnetworks.com/challenge/entries/8/5865/5865_1116331992_medium.jpg (http://www.cgnetworks.com/challenge/entries/8/5865/5865_1116331992_large.jpg)

"The evening meal was being served, and the devil had already prompted Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, to betray Jesus. Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples' feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.

He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, "Lord, are you going to wash my feet?"

Jesus replied, "You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand."

"No," said Peter, "you shall never wash my feet."
Jesus answered, "Unless I wash you, you have no part with me."

"Then, Lord," Simon Peter replied, "not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!"

Jesus answered, "A person who has had a bath needs only to wash his feet; his whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you." For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.

When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. "Do you understand what I have done for you?" he asked them. "You call me 'Teacher' and 'Lord,' and rightly so, for that is what I am. Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another's feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them." John 13.

With this image, I have attempted to show the scene at the Last Supper where Jesus kneels and washes His disciples feet. The idea that a God would kneel before His people and serve them is very powerful to me, and models how I would like to live my life - being a servant to others. I have tried to capture the reactions of the various disciples as their 'master' kneels and serves them in this humble way.

I have chosen to attempt a style reminiscent of the renaissance - inspired particularly by the works of Tintoretto and El Greco and their bolder, more abstract use of colour. I was interested to see, also, how to construct a multi-character scene and compose the elements into a single image.

Right - let's see if can actually finish one of these challenges...

Thinking about some quite classical ideas - I'll do a few sketches first I think...

It's still a bit linear but that should hopefully be fixed by some decent life drawing... This is the basic composition though.

Going to go the whole renaissance hog and do the whole thing pretty straight I think - kind of Old Old Skool :)

Submit all your works through the submit milestone method otherwise it wont get judged.


You're working really fast, and the quality is beginning to show. Are you going for an oil painting style or photo real? Quality is showing already :arteest:

Study for one of the character heads - from the Sistine Ceiling. Maybe use this for one of the guys at the back.

Another study for a character.

This is for the kneeling figure of Jesus. Used some reference photos of me wrapped up in a tablecloth but am still not happy with the pose - lacks interest and the right shoulder is a bit strange. The right hand also needs to be visible I think.

Posing for these makes you really how ridiculously contorted Renaissance figures often are.... :s

Oh well - I'm just going to keep doing figure studies and drapery studies and hope that I get some I like.

JMcWilliams
03-23-2005, 04:52 PM
Hi James,

I prefered the previous character study, this next one seems a little awkward in pose, but keep it up... it's looking like it has some potentual :D

Good stuff so far keep it up. Your way ahead of me, I'm still sketching. good hustle.

Magnemar
03-24-2005, 12:38 PM
Yes I think you're right about that figure study - definitely too rigid and flat. I want each character to be dynamic, even if their pose is fairly still.

In general, I think I've rushed on a bit without working out the composition more. I'll try a few more over the next couple of weeks.

I've been struggling with how to get the central theme across: that of God kneeling and serving man. Not sure how to get across that the character of Jesus is God in man.... (don't really want to revert to the whole 'halo' thing).

Likewise I'd like to introduce a second theme of rich nations serving poor nations rather than exploiting them although I've no idea how I'll introduce this - maybe have to resort to some classical symbolism of some form...

Off on holiday from today anyway so hopefully be able to do lots of sketches on the beach :)

See you all when I get back - might post if I can get near a net cafe....

Ok - so here\'s the more detailed layout drawing (with lots of the same looking bloke in all the poses - me in a tablecloth...).

Quite pleased with how it\'s hanging together and am excited about moving on to shading and painting.

I think I\'ll paint straight on, rather than redrawing details on the line art - change things around as I go - particularly outfits and faces.

Was in two minds whether to make the building complex or to stay with a more historically-accurate basic upper room.

Things may change....

ahh, you're back. :) Looks like you have a good foundation now to paint on.


It will be interesting to see how you light the scene. Perhaps the lighting would be the key to your problem with depicting Jesus as God? I'm not saying have him glowing or have a beam of light shining down on him from the sky (although a sharp beam of light from the back window would do!), but if he was wearing white cloth and the other characters brown etc then he would stick out a little and give off a subtle natural glow??

Looks so far so good. Will you leave yourself in as one of the characters? Rude not to :D

Keep up the good work! :buttrock:

Started to block out the shadows and highlights to get a feel for lighting - the idea is to have light flowing in from the right and some from behind too.

Need to work out what to do with the heads of the characters (before they get too far down the line and all look a bit like me.) Judicious application of beards and hairstyles is in order I think...

i like your theme. there are but few who went on a biblical themes. try to find on the internet tintoretto's washing of the desciples feet. he really knew how to make an aerial, light atmosphere. keep up. ill be watcing u!:)

Started to overlay some colour onto the base tonal layers - all looks pretty murky at the moment but I'll hopefully be able to balance it as I go along...

Still avoiding the details (like the heads - I suppose I'll have to tackle them sometime soon.

Thanks to Calisto I've been looking at my Tintoretto book and getting some colour ideas from there.

Just need to keep going...

Hey James, looks cool - good to see it moving on again after your holiday :p

Looking at tintoretto - or at least the few pictures I have seen - he seems to have some really good effects like angelic cherub figures forming out of smoke from lamps, which might look good in your scene.

:thumbsup:

Hey James,

I just looking in on the 2d part of the challenge, I must say I almost chose this exact theme for my 3d challenge but am doing something slightly different now. I like your sketches , the characters seem well posed too. I do think you should somehow make the footwashing or servant action more prominent somehow. Maybe move Jesus closer to the disciple who's foot he is washing, right now I think he is a distant.

Look forward to this being completed.

Just a quick update...

Few more colours in there.

hi!
The guy on the far right- is that Judas? I ask because most of the lines lead to the disciple whose feet are being washed, but the eye is mightily distracted by the apostle leaving the room. I would point him the other way, unless he's Judas, but Judas was still part of the group at the time, so I'm confused!!
I think you should make your background rather more desaturated in order to bring your figures out more. Looking good though!!
I'd love it if you could check out my m & s and give tips??

Magnemar
04-13-2005, 02:00 PM
Spot on Paperclip - the guy on the right is Judas (beating a hasty retreat). The light from the doorway is highlighting him too much at the moment though, so that will be changing.

The colours are just the basic colour layers - I've kept them all separate so I can balance them out once they're all laid over. Was going to desaturate the background.... :)

I'll go and have a little look at your thread now...

Close up of the left hand window landscape.

It's nice to finally be painting the image rather than just blocking out colours and composition. :)

The view is supposed to be a bright view over First Century Jerusalem (I'm not going mega-accurate though - Renaissance paintings seemed to get away with whatever they liked in the background...)

The question is - do I put in a view of the temple or not? - Might be good for symbolism and all that, but it'll mean I'll have to do some more research.

To be lazy or not to be lazy....

I really like the view outside the window!

Crit time-- the men with the round shirtnecks look as if their chest is their back- I think you should suggest the clavicles.
I don't want to be nitpicky, but wasn't Judas fully a member of the Twelve at that time? He was with the group right up until a few days before Jesus's betrayal. Are you changing it? Just wondering....

Magnemar
04-14-2005, 02:12 PM
This is the bit I'm basing it on....

John 13

Jesus Washes His Disciples' Feet

1It was just before the Passover Feast. Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he now showed them the full extent of his love.[a (http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=John%2013;&version=31;#fen-NIV-26621a)]

2The evening meal was being served, and the devil had already prompted Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, to betray Jesus. 3Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; 4so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. 5After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples' feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.

6He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?”

7Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”

8“No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.”

Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.”

9“Then, Lord,” Simon Peter replied, “not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!”

10Jesus answered, “A person who has had a bath needs only to wash his feet; his whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you.” 11For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean. 12When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. 13“You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. 14Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another's feet. 15I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. 16I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.

A few more updates - been working some more highlights through into the cloth - still need to balance some of the hues to one another.

Started work on some of the faces too - lots more work needed I think....

I've also done a halo experimant on the figure of Jesus. I didn't really want to do a halo as it's a bit obvious and cliched but I think it helps define who's who.

What do people think?

Magnemar
04-21-2005, 07:51 AM
Thanks James.

I've lost inspiration a bit - its all getting a bit murky and samey and it needs so much more done... :(

Anybody got any ideas for perking it up?

The trouble is that there are so many faces and so much drapery... Whose idea was this anyway..... :)

The whole master and servanty thing needs to be re-emphasised too - got a lot more respect for the 'Old Masters' now than I had a few weeks back when I started this.

The whole question of how to express in visual form the concept that Jesus as God (ie all powerful) is kneeling and washing the feet of his disciples (in the manner of a servant) whilst retaining the fact that he was fully human at the same time is a bit of a pig. If you give him a halo he then has an otherworldly superior quality, that denies his basic humble humanity. Conversely, if you don't give him a halo or other distinguishing deificating symbol, he looks like all the other disciples and the image lacks visual punch.

Any suggestions....?

JMcWilliams
04-21-2005, 08:56 AM
Hey James,

I think perhaps you should look at the lighting, which at the moment is a bit ambiguous. I think seeing as the primary light source is the 3 windows you would probably find more highlights and contrast (some darker shadows), I could almost imagine a subtle glare outside.

Magnemar

Finally got round to doing some more on this (feeling uninspired this week...)

More faces done - happiest with the guy at the back with his hands on his head. As James said though - I think I need clearer lighting.

There are supposed to be three main light sources in scene: Main light is a strong side light from the right through the doorway, then the windows, then candles in a metal lamp hanging from the ceiling (not done yet). The windows behind are dominating a little too much at the moment. I should perhaps work on the light through the doorway next....?

Cs and Cs Welcome....

Hello. What about making the majority of the light coming from The Man himself? It already looks like this, but perhaps you could just tone everything else down and simply have the other light sorces do little more than add interest? Perhaps it's overcast (or slowly growing dark) outside and that doorway has the equivalent of just a few candles? :shrug:

Ok - here's a lighting experiment (going crazy with a dodge brush in other words...)

What do people think?

Tried darkening the back windows but didn't like it.

Will be clearing it up and toning it back a bit from this probably... :)

04-22-2005, 10:59 PM
I really like the lighting pouring in from outside, and this scene is developing very nicely, awsome in fact. My only comment would be that this scene takes place right before or around supper (last supper right?). So maybe it should be more dusk or the sun setting, i donno. Not that it has to be like that, just a comment. I really like the clothes as well, very great job portraying the folds. Keep it going

Magnemar
04-25-2005, 08:03 AM
Gah! You've caught me out! Yes it should be at night (or at least early evening). I wanted light coming in from the outside so I used a bit of artistic licence with the lighting.

The lighting still isn't right though - I guess I just need to keep messing around with it (and use more reference.) I haven't really painted with multiple strong light sources before so am finding it a bit of a struggle....

Not a huge update - Been working into the background a bit- taking out the splodginess and smoothing the wall plaster a bit.

I'm going to stick with the lighting probably as two point for the time being.

Lots more to do.....

There are differences, honest!

Been working into the fabric and burnt on highlights trying to blend them in more.

There are lots of problems depth that I need to sort - may have to split it all off into depth layers and play with it that way....

Comments and crits welcome.... :)

More changes - lots of subtle ones mainly.

If anyone has any suggestions as to how to \'perk\' it up then please let me know....

Particularly with the light on the right of the picture - it just looks very \'Dodge\' brush at the moment....

hi Magnemar, I feel all the lightings in your piece are fighting for our attention. Jesus Christ is the main focus of the whole, so make the halo around his head shine brighter than the rest of the lights. So in this case, dim the light coming out from the doorway. It is rather distracting at the moment.

The las dinner ;) Good image, I like it

Magnemar
05-05-2005, 07:30 AM
Thanks for your comments.


Jeremoo - I agree about the doorway - it is very distracting at the moment.

I've realised how difficult it is to do Halos properly though. Because they are a symbolic 'shorthand' to denote 'Holyness' they shouldn't cast light within the scene to a great degree, as this is counter-productive to the human aspect of the image. The difficulty with images of Jesus, I've realised, is that he was fully human and so, consequently, shouldn't look any different to any of the others in the scene. Yet to communicate the basic tenet that God is bowing before His disciples requires some visual representation of His sovereignty.

I'll keep going - there is a lack of emotional intensity in the faces of the disciples (caused mainly by not using decent reference...) which needs to be attacked. As for that doorway....

Hopefully get it finished........

Dodging the light can increase the light but if you make all the light with this tool that's not sound good. Dodge tool can't be control well to make a plain dodging, it's fit for a little dodging or detail dodging not to make it all. I think it's better to use the correct color to make the light, get some palette from the photo is the way I'm doing. Keep going man!!

Ok - so I've reworked that doorway a bit - getting rid of the nasty dodge madness - and am continuing to work into little areas. I've also added a dark archway on the left to balance the composition a bit and have changed the colour of John's robe a bit.

I need to up Jesus' levels a tad to make him stand out next I think...

Not much time left....

"The evening meal was being served, and the devil had already prompted Judas Iscariot, son of Simon, to betray Jesus. Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples' feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.

He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, "Lord, are you going to wash my feet?"

Jesus replied, "You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand."

"No," said Peter, "you shall never wash my feet."
Jesus answered, "Unless I wash you, you have no part with me."

"Then, Lord," Simon Peter replied, "not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!"

Jesus answered, "A person who has had a bath needs only to wash his feet; his whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you." For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.

When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. "Do you understand what I have done for you?" he asked them. "You call me 'Teacher' and 'Lord,' and rightly so, for that is what I am. Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another's feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them." John 13.

With this image, I have attempted to show the scene at the Last Supper where Jesus kneels and washes His disciples feet. The idea that a God would kneel before His people and serve them is very powerful to me, and models how I would like to live my life - being a servant to others. I have tried to capture the reactions of the various disciples as their 'master' kneels and serves them in this humble way.

I have chosen to attempt a style reminiscent of the renaissance - inspired particularly by the works of Tintoretto and El Greco and their bolder, more abstract use of colour. I was interested to see, also, how to construct a multi-character scene and compose the elements into a single image.

Congratulations on finishing!! It looks great, I love the colours and the outside scene is particularly realistic. You did well to come back after your holiday and continue with the piece and keep to the title, well done.
