This concept has been treated so as to give the impression of a victorian photograph, which is ultimately the look i want to achieve. It is a very quick and rough treatment and hopefully will try to create a better effect with the final image.

ok, here is my concept. im quite a novice with this forum and seem to manage to delete more stuff than i upload!:eek: , though i think i know what im doing now. I took a while to submit an image cause i thought a fair bit about the concept:

Concept



The master/servant relationship is essentially a degrading one for the subservient party. It is, by its very nature, counter to the values of equality that have prevailed in modern times. Slavery has been abolished for a long time in most of the world and even having servants isn’t common practise.



However we still treat animals as subservient, and force many of them to serve us. Now I don’t claim this is wrong or right, I eat meat, wear leather and have ridden a horse. The observation I would like to make is one where we subjugate mighty beasts that could crush us so as it would seem that we are the stronger. Chimpanzees are forced to wear clothes and mimic humans though an adult male chimp could rip a man to pieces. There is the irony of the man who forces an enormous elephant to rip trees from the ground simply by wielding a stick. I feel bad when I see majestic and beautiful animals not given the respect that their size or stature should afford them. But that is the odd thing about animals and humans. It seems animals are too willing to submit to the will of what they apparently see as a strange and superior being.

But what if one day they realise there own power and our apparent weakness. What if there is a momentary realisation , and a brief pang of pride and understanding of their humiliation at the hands of this arrogant creature. It is this question that I ask with my concept and this relationship I explore. I cannot think of a more majestic animal than a tiger and sought to use this mighty animal in a scene which would exemplify the point.



My scene shows a girl in Victorian times abusing her rather exotic pet that her father brought back from India. The girl treats the mighty tiger like a toy, so resolute is she in her opinion of who is master and who is servant in this relationship. The tiger, once king of all he surveyed is now reduced to following the orders of a spoilt little child. One day he mauls the little girls doll, it hangs limply from his powerful jaws just as the little girl would if he were to feel so inclined, and the little girl admonishes him, she tugs on his flimsy little lead, the slim piece of rope could be broken in an instant yet it seems to confine him like a ball and chain. Normally the tiger would cower and accept the little girls rebuke, but there is a glint in his eye today, ……………
