Latest Update: Final Image: last-minute changes
http://www.cgnetworks.com/challenge/entries/9/7037/7037_1116433954_medium.jpg (http://www.cgnetworks.com/challenge/entries/9/7037/7037_1116433954_large.jpg)

here is some last-minute touch-up.. talldk was complaining that slave guy's butt was lost in the blurring process(his hand also). so I down-played the blur a little bit and attended to some of the glitches that I hadnt noticed before. Actually, I was cursing you the whole evening, talldk, bcos I had one hell of a time uploading the final tiff again; but thanks again, ol' buddy, I think the whole thing turned out better than before.

btw, here is an update on the story line again( with some embellishments.. hehehe..!)

An assassination is about to happen. A slave who has had enough of the chief's tyranny decides to have his revenge. The whole plot of the murder has not unfurled yet.. All the under-currents that lead up to the crime will be revealed only after it is committed.. the role of the seductive woman is masked from the audience.. she poses as an innocent witness who is secretly in love with the down-trodden slave, she herself a helpless victim of the cruel and ego-centric chief.. but she may turn out to be an accomplice to the crime, or even the master-mind behind the whole scheme... She may even be the pivotal element in a well-planned coup. She may be assisting the crime by making the chief drunk. Who knows- the slender arms that are lovingly curled around the smug chief's neck may be the ones that will hold him in place while he struggles under the treacherous dagger! Yes, the whole truth of the story may be lying hidden in the young courtesan's eyes.

HI...
here is my concept drawing atlast... u see there is this ugly, fat guy who is the chief or something(master) and there is the bigstrong warrior (servant)... and then there is a cute little nymph who is also the fat guy's slave/toy, but she lusts after the warrior guy.. dunno what happens next, but this is the general idea.. hope i can pull it off.. comments welcome..
good luck to all. gotta start modeling.. i am already late.

HI...
Just started modeling "Chief", the master in the scene. I plan to finish the general shape in maya and then move on to ZBrush for the details.

Nice work - he looks suitably opulant and nasty, it would be great to see some meaty slabs of fat hanging from his outstretched arm. Although I don't know what you're intent is for the final composition, I think it would also add a lot to his character to have him not even looking in the hero's direction in the scene...

... here is a posing test for the chief and the girl sittin together in the high-backed chair.. hehe.. there's some slight deviation from the original drawing, but i think the general attitude of the girl is as originally intended.. I have'nt yet started modeling the hero... I think i have to really hurry up.

Hi anand,

once again good work with the hair. just one more small suggestion. Can she roll one single strand of hair rolling in her fingers to show the love towards the servant as I thought is shall look more erotic. :))

Hi Mojo...
I like ur idea, but as she is leaning on the chief with both arms, I doubt if it won't tip her balance if she does something with one of her hands... anyway, I will try it out once i have modeled and posed the hero guy(oh god! I am running out of time!). thanks a lot.:)

Hi..
some fine-tuning on the girl.. I thought i could spare her the ZBrushing, but then I couldnt deny myself the pleasure.. did some correction on the knees and shoulders and fine-tuned her neck a little bit. and yes, i raised her left eye-brow a wee bit and pulled out the left corner of her mouth a few millimeters.

Here is how the final composition is going to look.. well, almost. I abandoned the original landscape format, as this looks more dramatic to me. what do you think?

here i am using a rather simple shading network- a layered shader with a lambert and a phongE in it.. the lambert has nothing but the color mapped to it and the phongE has the specular and the bump(all from the same file texture ;-)). then there is a samplerInfo-ramp combination to control the specular size, in an effort to simulate the refraction of light at low andgles of deflection.

Thats one very fine concept and I simply love the modelling :love:
I liked the south indianess in characters. Well done.
Dont let the textures ruin the hard work.

I'd suggest dont keep the lady and the slave totally nude. Give slave some torn n worn clothes and the girl some luxurious ones, covering the basics. Also, her body language can be improved to convey the story better. Also , let the slave hold a rose with knife, to suggest his 'good' intensions, if you wish.

:thumbsup: best of luck.

hi...
Zibi suggested that the knife better be held upside-down, bcoz, otherwise, it was attracting too much attention and also, it was going against the curve of the slave's spine, thus disturbing the composition.. what do you think?

HellsAngel
05-08-2005, 04:53 PM
very nice updates.......i like the mood ur setting........
about the textures....skin still aint good....and the bump...well..theres a ring pattern visible on the chair....and considerin the bump on the steps....they'd have cracks and breaks....the finish is too unrealistic......
i'd go with the knife held down....was gona mention that...cos otherwise...apart from composition..the knife would be visible to the master in that pose......
waitin to see updates:)

Hi!...
this is a scaled-down version of the 3000X4000 which i rendered yesterday. I think I have to work on the scars a little bit, and add some bump on the under-side of the feet... anyway, I may use this one in the final if I dont get the time for the tweaks.. hehehe!!

Hi guys,
thanks for the staunch support.. I will definitely put in my best for u guys. But I am really sorry I dont think I can improve much more on the textures.. I am not a regular shading/texturing guy, u know.. I tried a bit of SSS in Maya last night, but it didnt get anywhere.. I takes time, I guess. Anyways, I rendered all my characters layer by layer, so that I can juggle them around a bit.. hehe.. Btw, u know what? I am the dirtiest cheat around!.. I rendered the BG and the slave with a 35mm camera and the cheif and his girl with a 70mm!! HAHAHA!!! please forgive me, God, but the girl was getting distorted out of shape with the 35mm.
Well, this is how i intend to go about it... first, I will do some air-brushing and cloning to get a few artifacts out of the way and maybe re-render some parts.. then i\\\'ll do some color-correcting and some smoke/dust effects and stuff.. maybe render a few props and add them on.. ;-) I just hope to turn this thing into something good... just for u guys!! Hehehe..

Hi..
I was doing some tests with my renderings, and came up with this problem.. smbdy pls help me out... do i blur the foreground and thus obliterate some of the detail i worked so hard for, or do i leave the blurring out, thus taking the realism and intrigue out of the whole thing? I am of the opinion that a little bit of blur wont hurt much. what do u think?

I think unblurred version is better.. :)

Aquariuswithfire
05-12-2005, 08:14 PM
I think the blur is counter productive in this instance. The scarring on the servant's back is part of your story. Just because you can doesn't mean you should....Its a great piece - I really like it.

z3djinn
05-13-2005, 12:23 AM
I believe if you tone down the blur just a little on the front character(towards the outer edges), add some highlights to the knife and some reddish tint to the scars on his back to show the difference between old and new wounds and bring the light in a little to highlight mostly the guy in the chair and not the woman and maybe give him some jewlery to draw the eye up and in. Try pulling the light towards the camera to shine more on the guys back and facing the chair dude. Or maybe a combination of these or others. Try it. I really like this pic and I believe you will go far with it.

Oh yeah, it needs a background.

Hi.. here is some update on the compositing.. I toned down the girl a bit, and basically tried to add some contrast in the chief/girl area of the pic. thanks, z3djinn, for ur great suggestions.. I decided to blur the slave guy only at the back, so that his wounds are seen clearly.. I think I will work a bit on the BG tonite. I am thinking of modeling some props also.. probably a wip lying on the floor, like k4k suggested.

Hi.. this is my final image.. I am not working on it any more.. I have decided on the title atlast- "The Intrigue". This is what it is all about-
There's an assassination about to happen. A slave who has had enough of the chief's tyranny decides to have his revenge. The whole plot of the murder is not unravelled at this moment.. Everything will become known only after the assassination has happenned.. the role of the concubine is not known to the audience.. she poses as an innocent witness who is secretly in love with the down-trodden slave, but she might be his accomplice, or even the master-mind behind the whole scheme. She may be assisting the crime by making the chief drunk. Who knows- the slender arms that are lovingly curled around the chief's neck may become the clamps that will hold him in place while he struggles under the treacherous dagger! Yes, the whole mystery of the story is in the beautiful concubine's eyes.

this is an additional bit of modeling i did at the last moment.. the chief's loin-cloth trailing on to the floor.. I thought this new addition would help to fill in some of the empty floor, while also giving additional proof of the chief's depravity! smart, huh? hehe..

Hi Anand,

Now those close up images will give the audience the real feel of your image. Man its awesome. Hey I think you might want to tone down on the blur on the slave a little, so that in the final image people will get to see more detail of the hand and the feet. You excell in the area of hand detailing. And I for sure do not want to miss out that detail. Its just a suggestion:wise:. Now its really very blurred. And on the floor there seems to be a patch...like when you textured it got cut...please check it out. But anyway its indeed a classic piece of work man.CONGRATS:thumbsup:.....HIP HIP HOOOOOOOOORRAAY:scream:

here is some last-minute touch-up.. talldk was complaining that slave guy's butt was lost in the blurring process(his hand also). so I down-played the blur a little bit and attended to some of the glitches that I hadnt noticed before. Actually, I was cursing you the whole evening, talldk, bcos I had one hell of a time uploading the final tiff again; but thanks again, ol' buddy, I think the whole thing turned out better than before.

btw, here is an update on the story line again( with some embellishments.. hehehe..!)

An assassination is about to happen. A slave who has had enough of the chief's tyranny decides to have his revenge. The whole plot of the murder has not unfurled yet.. All the under-currents that lead up to the crime will be revealed only after it is committed.. the role of the seductive woman is masked from the audience.. she poses as an innocent witness who is secretly in love with the down-trodden slave, she herself a helpless victim of the cruel and ego-centric chief.. but she may turn out to be an accomplice to the crime, or even the master-mind behind the whole scheme... She may even be the pivotal element in a well-planned coup. She may be assisting the crime by making the chief drunk. Who knows- the slender arms that are lovingly curled around the smug chief's neck may be the ones that will hold him in place while he struggles under the treacherous dagger! Yes, the whole truth of the story may be lying hidden in the young courtesan's eyes.

sorry I didnt visit this thread during the contest to offer this crit.. I think the camera angle is very good nice and dynamic. the story telling is quite good but could be improved alot if you ha added something to the fat man in the chair to show his power. a headdress or a crown or something, at first I read it as a fat man in a chair with naked girl.. then I registered the kneeling man with the knife and I began to unravel the story.

If you want to come back to this image .. for the sake of art just some food for thought.

Thanks for the comment, Ken. Actually, there were suggestions from quite a few viewers to the same effect, but sadly, I kept it for the last... u can guess what happened - I ran out of time! There were a lot of things i wish i could have done about the set, props, ornaments and the texturing, but there wasnt enough time in the end as i couldnt work on it full-time - I stared out late as it were. Maybe i should plan things in advance next time.
