My story:

Years 1986, The nuclear engine of the atomic power station of tchernobyl explodes.
A few years later, other accidents of this type follow and cause the disappearance of a great
number of humans.The atmosphere become unbreathable, the survivors settle under ground.
Today the humans were accustomed to their new life, but wish over all to return on the surface.
So, they seek a method enabling them to support radiations.
Some Man, more or less volunteers, are selected for this purpose, and massive amounts of drugs at plutonium bases are injected to them.
While knowing that radiations cause violent and fast changes, the scientists doesn't question themselves about
possible side effects on humans and on anything else!

Now i've drawing Lights and Shadows...What do you think about it??

walrus
04-11-2005, 09:20 PM
I think that the lights and shadows in this comp are working well so far. However, I have to confess, I don't get a strong feeling of 'Master and Servant' when I look at this picture. I understand where you're going with your concept, but the machine parts are reading like just some part of the environment, not a conscious master with volition and control over a servant. Perhaps it's just my own limited scope of interpretation that is the problem, but I felt it might be worth pointing out... Sorry! :-) There are so many different ways to deal with this that I'm hesitant to suggest any because it's still so wide open. Maybe more of a feeling that the human is being controlled by the machine and thus a servant? Or maybe a slightly more anthropomorphised aspect to the machine? I feel like I should suggest something because I don't want to appearrude by seeming like criticising without offering any solutions, but on the other hand, I really can't tell you what to do with your own piece...

Anyhow, don't mind me.... Good luck with it, and have fun! :)

hey man !
thx for commenting on my thread!
as you are french and seems need help from others... I suscribbed to this thread :)


*bon mec , je vois aps tres bien cke tu veut representer dans ton image , le crokis est bien sympas mais si c'est les relations ordis/humains que tu veut montrer c ok mais eprd aps en tete le but du challenge , MASTER and SERVANT ... fo creer un rapport de force , pas forcment hostile mais fo creer un dominant un dominé... ou plusieurs selon tes idees...

fodrai que tu mette bien en avant le fait que lhumain semble etre maitre de la machine mais tombe sous son controle...


bonne chance , le croquis est sympas :)

Hello

I've just read the other's comments and I subscribe to them.
Well, the man looks happy however I thought he would some kind of victim in the first sketch.
If I understand the story, the man should be considered like a slave to some drug machine... So what is the machine for ? Remember in Matrix, people were used as simple battery. Is there any function of the drug administrating machine you could show. Maybe the scene you're depicting is only a part of a bigger expolitation system ?

Anyway keep on working
Good luck :thumbsup:

..actualy this composition appears to me little strange in the context of the contest...but may be it is too early because you didn't show the bground yet. However for sure you must choose the colors...sure it is dificult but it's worth it...i'm interested to see the final image. Good Luck!

spacesnail
04-17-2005, 06:37 PM
Good start with the coloring :thumbsup:
OK for the perspective, but there's still a lack of explanation about the master/servant relation. The human character looks afraid, right but afraid of what ?
Maybe the master is out of seeing... In this case, you should add some clue to reveal him.
About the left needle : it appears too close from the viewer.

Well, well, well... In your next posts, you could show some more master design to help ?

Allez, bon courage... La critique est aisée mais l'art est difficile jeune padawan :wise:

Vectorius
04-18-2005, 11:23 AM
Thank you for all advices guys!! That help me a lot..however, some among you say to me that in my work , the topic of the contest is not enough present? I want "to materialize" the machines by another personnage..in this case the large arm provided with needles would not be more independent but they would make parties of the body of a more complex machine...who will representing the master..Do I totally reveal her or only suggest her..My goal is that people better do understand the image that I wish to make pass with this composition...

What do you thinking about?

04-18-2005, 11:26 AM

Thought I'd drop by and see what you are doing, looks interesting, but reminds me a bit of the machineflesh chalenge, I'm just unsure about who exactly the master is, great if it is the machine, but who or what is behind the machine. This is my first response after seeing your work, so maybe others might feel the same, other wise it looks good technically. Keep it up and good luck to you too.

Good start! I understand your concept. I have some advice for you. I think that your picture is a little lonely. I think that you should push your lines to the extreme. i think that you should ad more decay through paint to you characters body even if you desaturate the skin tone. I also think that you should go back and draw some more machinery. maybe on another sheet of paper and just scan it in. but I definitely think that you'll want more content. You work is nice but it finishes so fast and you just want more. its like "the first time" except its not and people will leave with a bad taste in their mouth. so add mor good art man! talk to you later

E.T
04-21-2005, 02:12 PM
I think its already been said, but i think you need to establish the computer as a "person" more. Make sure it looks more intentional and perhaps punishing.

I DO like the layout and sketches, and i dont really think you need to add REAL details, rather the feeling of complexity.. perhaps a bit unclear of me?

What do you think about this idea???
To not charge the image too much by adding a character in foreground i've the idea to put the master of the machine in a box in background...
It's in fact of an insane scientist who dopes his patient. the scientist is the machines master and drugg is the patient master..a double feeling..

04-26-2005, 09:51 AM
that is a nice addition fiolka but I do think that you should add just one more piece of machinery..its still so lonely in the room. good work though. this will be good! talk to you later!

Nice work so far. Have you thought about what kind of ligting you're going to work into the final piece? I was thinking that putting in some harsh directional lights that create hard shadows and possibly some red control pannel lights in the room behind the window or flashing overhead might give it a greater feeling of urgency and help portray that something has gone wrong (as the look on the face of the man pressed against the glass so eloquently indicates) just some thoughts. Keep the good work. I look forward to seeing how it progresses.

Nice progression :thumbsup:
Where's the big boss i saw previously in your thread ?

A little suggestion : what about using some spherical deformation when you have finished ?
The forced perspective you've given to your picture may be distorted, so we could feel the distress of the servant ? I'm thinking of a M.C. Escher picture ( looking at his portrait on spherical metal ball)

Cheers

Salut Alexandre

_Est-ce qu'il faut poster l'image en haute résolution?? Ils parlent de 2657/ 3636 pixels...en 300 dpi? Parce que là c'est sur ça dépassera les 150Kos:) ... à moins qu'ils aient prévu le coup avec leur serveurs FTP?

En fait, cette définition est effectivement donnée pour le fichier final, à transférer via FTP.
Il faudra alors faire extrêmement attention à bien nommé ton fichier car il doit absolument correspondre à ton identification chez CGNetworks... Je crois me rappeler d'ailleurs qu'il doit aussi être zippé.

_"All entries must be submitted by Midnight at the end of 18 May 2005 (GMT)". Que veut dire GMT?... je suppose que ça ne correspond pas à notre fuseau horaire..donc minuit en france ce serait peut-être trop tard pour poster..?

C'est tout simplement le Greenwich Mean Time soit notre nationale - 1 Heure... POur plus de précaution, le mieux est de prévoir le trtansfert FTP 2-3 jours avant pour éviter le rush des derniers instants... surtout que c'est généralement à ce moment que ton ordi se met à fumer et à fire des bruits bizarres Ha Ha... çà m'est arrivé sur un autre concours, et là je me suis senti très seul...
N'hésite pas à me recontacter si tu a besoi de plus de détails :thumbsup:

Bon courage pour la suite

It have a nice marker look to it. The colour goes with it too. Just a personal thing, i kinda like him with the white hair. It adds more personality to him. Oh and the left hand is a little bit big. Overall, it is looking tight and the facial expressions are great :thumbsup:

whats up man? hows it coming? i see you pulled out his hair. not a bad Idea. this is gonna turn out to be a nice piece. so the trick that I have for metal is that after i put my normal colors in I turn my brush mode to linear dodge. and shoot the opacity way down to like 10%. maybe even 7.then just touch the areas that are highlighted or that are going to be. You should try that. be gentle though it can easily screw up and begin to look very choppy, unless thats what you want. Any way man. Keep at it!

That is one big syringe! Gulp!.. I like your perspective. However I feel the window that you have right now at the background is less interesting than the one you had earlier from your sketches. The previous one has a more interesting shape than just a normal square. Just my opinion ya. :o). Can't wait to see it colored. :thumbsup:

Salut Alexandre, je te réponds à travers ton lien pour ta question sur le règlement.

Voici le texte en question:" Each challenger should provide an accompanying written description of their scene, explaining the emotions of the characters portrayed." ce qui veut dire que chaque image doit être accompagnée d'un texte décrivant la scène et expliquant les émotions des personnages qui y sont présents. Chacun de nous doit donc le faire.
Bonne chance et à bientôt!

What do you think about the lights?

Arc80
05-10-2005, 11:10 PM
looking good dude. About the light, if the situation is about something went wrong and the machines are malfunctioning, then i would saturate that light a bit or make it more red. Right now it looks a bit pinkish/orange colour. And maybe just add a bit texturing on the floor. Everything else looks great :thumbsup: very nice expressions dude.

Maybe it's just me, but it doesn't look to me like the machine is taking over,
it just looks like the experiment may be going bad. What I would do is to turn
this scene into a real movie twist climactic scene by having the machine break
the glass with a thick cable and insert its needle towards a scientist. You could
even make a cable strangle a scientist while a needle shoots him up. The other
scientist could be petrified in horror. Or running away. Cool scene as it is too.
Maybe better as it is, but of course the storyline clarifies it anyway, so the glass
breaking could be over the top. Any way I like it. Looks cool as it is for a comic book
style, the kind of comic books I like!. Or if you make it polished-metalic like, that will

Fiolka - you have a great sense of humour!

The two guys in the back crack me up! I think its the combination of their white med suits, long white hair, and round glasses - classic!

The machine the 'subject' is in, as well as plugged into is totally awesome, as are the big scarey needles.

Great concept, great style. Oh yeah - the drawing/colour is really nice to :thumbsup:

hello my friend ...good concpet...i think that you must work further on the anatomy of the figure, for example i think that the fingers of the hands are too big...good luck!

Hi- great work. One little crit- The guy in the tub, his right forearm is too long compared to the upper arm. Also, his left arm's forearm should be thicker and widening towards the elbow.

YOP! Thank userbrian...I 'll correct some error..in particular on the main caracter..i have to correct the left arm..and i'll remake the left hand too...Indeed she's looking too artistic...i'll remake her more stressed...like the right one.

Now i've already add some cable behind the window who attack the scientist and so i've remake the right scientist attitude too...I'll post a new WIP this evening...I hope to have finished front the end of the challenge.:)

Definately looking good. Just one last suggestion from me, you know that green liquid you have inside the surrienge (i'm not sure if that's the rigth spelling, hehe), how about making them glow a bit especially the one close to him. You can also give it some highlights. It'll be a good contrast to your red light.

cheers and goodluck. It's been fun following your thread and i will be back to see the final image :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :bounce: :applause: :bounce:

This has really come together, Fiolka! I like the lighting, and the recent addition of the robotic tentacles in the control room help tie the piece togetehr and she who's the real master. It works.
Good luck with the final few details!

I post my final image one more time but with my story..

The story:
Years 1986, The nuclear engine of the atomic power station of tchernobyl explodes.
A few years later, other accidents of this type follow and cause the disappearance of a great
number of humans.The atmosphere become unbreathable, the survivors settle under ground.
Today the humans were accustomed to their new life, but wish over all to return on the surface.
So, they seek a method enabling them to support radiations.
Some Man, more or less volunteers, are selected for this purpose, and massive amounts of drugs at plutonium bases are injected to them.
While knowing that radiations cause violent and fast changes, the scientists doesn't question themselves about
possible side effects on humans and on anything else!

what I wanted to represent in my picture, it is the "transfer" of power between the machines and the scientists.The scientists think of being the Masters of the experiments that they carry out on the human cobaye they think all of controlling...But the real masters are the machines..

There's several relationship that can be interpreted :

Scientists ---> Machines

Machines ---> Scientists

Scientists ---> cobaye

Machines ---> cobaye


Excuse for the possible english mistakes..I don't know if "cobaye" is a good translation to talk about my main caracter...By cobaye i mean "subject of experimentation"


GOOD LUCK TO ALL AND THANK YOU!:scream:
