Hello again to everybody and I am glad to meet you all at this new contest.
So, for the moment, I finished the sketch for the scene I imagined.
I will try to describe the subject of my story. I imagined a young man (half is human, half is android),who stays alone in a metalic room. Of course the door is locked and the room has only one small window. And in the scene I will create, this person has some toys, and one of this toys is a small lamp (like Alladin's lamp). This small lamp will make him believe that a genie will get out from the lamp. The genie will look exactly like a cradle for the kids, with some kids playing. In fact, that was his dream, to play and to dream, and not to stay alone in a metallic room.

Hmmm... interesting concept...
I like the idea, but I think that you might put a fairy instead of the cradle...
A fairy with a magic wand, witch can fulfill his wishes... just a suggestion...
Cheers and keep it up :thumbsup:

Updates for the room. It will be a simple metalic room with many screws in the corners and not only.

Are you going for a stylized look? I don't know how to critique this because it appears that you aren't going for realism with this baby. For example, those fingers look super far from realistic. Interesting concept and good speed with your modeling anyhow! Good luck.

09-18-2005, 03:52 PM

Thank you for your reply and I don't mind for any sugestion or critique. I agree with you regarding the child's fingers. I will do my best to create a realistic image, so I still have a lot of work there. Anyway, this baby doesn't need to many detail, because he will look like genie, with a lot of transparency and only one color.

Good work to you, too.

...me again.

I started modeling the boy that will stay in the corner of the room with the lamp in his hand. He will be dressed with some strange clothes, as he was a subject in many tests.

I added some toys in the room and a huge monitor in the corner.

This is an update of the scene. I put the cradle in the scene, in order to see the position of the camera.

Maybe this will not be the angle for my camera, but at least I put all the objects in the scene. Next...texturing

This will be the final position of the models. I also changed the direction of one of the kid's chair. I rearranged the toys of the dreamer. This picture shows the models without smooth.

I made a texture for my book, at least for a part of it.

I updated the scene with the textured book.

Here is thetexture for the airplane toy, maybe I will add some scratches or some dirt, because the toy is made of wood and is very old.

After all, I made some textures for the little dreamer. :)

I finally discovered how to make an object look like a ghost but I can not find the right colors. Anyway this is a preview of the shade. I also decided to change the look of the chair. It will be much more compact.

Me again. I made a texture for my dreamer. It's still without smooth because I textured every part of the body separately and maybe I will add some detail later.

Anoher update of the scene. I put some textures on the room's wall but it's not finished yet.

Me again, with some lights in the scene. Maybe it's not the final decision concernig the lighning. I will do some tests.

I changed the lights in the scene, but it's not finished yet.

Voila some updates of the genie. It's hard to find the perfect combination of colours and light of the genie. This time is very close of waht I had in my mind. I replaced the cradle with some "tentacles". The genie having the ghost shader didn't look so fine.

I changed a few things in my scene, but I am still "fighting" with the dreamer. It still doesn't look like a real child.

This is the render of my final scene.

11-17-2005, 06:37 PM
This is really weird! I like tha "final fantasy" like shader for the blue genie thing. Good mood, but to tell you the truth, I personally think that you might have tried to say too many things in one image, and that in the end they end up a bit confusing.

11-18-2005, 03:18 PM
Yes, it's true, sometimes is very hard to tell a story using only one image.I am sorry I coouldn't use the cradle I imagined at the begining due to the shader and the transparency. there we too many parts fot the cradle. so I decided to use this ideea.

I added some dirt on the window and some small changes in phtoshop.

So, finally the final image.

Good luck to everybody.
