Title: Patience and Passion
Name: Sabrina Bott
Software: 3ds max, Photoshop
The idea behind the picture was to show a scene that stands for "patience" and the bonsai seemed to be a good symbol for me.
To realize my first vision in a complete scene took my a lot of patience and passion...
Some wip pictures and the progress can be seen in my sketchbook thread - thanks to the people over in the anatomy forum for the good suggestions and help I've got there!

Nice work! There's something about his pose that feels quite rigid though, as though he's tensing. Not sure why I get that impression.

Hi Becca, thanks so much for the nice words! :)
And I have to say again that the Anatomy Forum is such a great place to get feedback for a WIP, it helped me a lot with this piece!
Hey Nathan, I'm glad to hear that you like the finished scene, thanks!:)
Hi Stephan, oh, you're too kind:) ...thank you for the comment and of course for the stars!
Wheee Stéph! Big hugs back for your support and the nice words!:love:
Hey Martin, atm I'm quite satisfied with the posing, but I've lost the fresh view for it, so maybe your right...but the Bonsai Master is already aged, so let's blame it to his arthritis! :D Thanks for your comment!
Hey Laeticia, nice to see you again and I'm glad that you like the picture, thank you!:)

Great work Sabrina. The lightning and the ambience looks really great, and the image transmits what you wanted, congrats. I agree that the pose looks a little forced, specially his left arm, but let´s blame the arthritis.
Congrats and keep on Sabrina.

mmh, I see, his arthritis seems to be really bad:D ...but I'm glad to hear that the image transports the feeling!
Thanks for your visit and the kind comment! :)

I looked at your portfolio after you replied in my thread and i saw this beautiful image... Everything is looking very very nice...
I am not disturbed by the rigidness or his left arm but the only thing that does bother me a little is the position of the right shoulder... if his body bended sideways, it should be higher than it is right now, balancing off for the left shoulder that goes down...
I hope that makes some sence,
See you around my friend,

Your work is very impressive, we feel well the feeling you wanted to pass.
However, the clothes would have deserved a little more attention, they have a big place in your picture, perhaps more fluid and shader most realist .:)
In any event,that's a very good job !

Hey George, thanks for your visit here, well, I think the pose is correct from an anatomical point of view, perhaps the choose of perspecive is not so good:shrug: ...but good to hear that you like the scene...and even better to here that you're going to Canada! Lost Boys, eh?...this will be certainly a great time for you, congrats:thumbsup: !
Hi Pascal, oh, the clothes...you have a point here and I see it myself, they could have need more work ! But glad to hear that you like the overall feeling:) ... Thanks for your nice comment!

a project very well managed... you can be proud about the result... very nice and zen.
The message of the pic with this mood is really understandable... I like the global feeling... and especially the little green touches of the bonsaï...
...much patience and passion in this creation :thumbsup:

Hey Lolo, now I'm proud to hear that you like the result:) !
Thanks for the comment and of course for the great support at the wip stage:love: ....

Hey Sabrina, congratulations to you for a wonderful image. The man looks wise and friendly and oh so patient! I love the expression on his face - very caring. The bonsai is just amazing and begs the question: which would take me longer? To grow a bonsai like that or to learn how to model a bonsai like that? This is superb.
05-22-2007, 02:31 PM
It's amazing, I could see the contentment he gets from taking care on the tree.
But it seemed that the brown colour of the table is not realy in hamony with the black window window joist and the other contruction elements.
can't await next

Hey Mark, I'm glad to hear your description of the Bonsai Master's expression, just what I wanted to show:love: ! And he looks certainly more patient than me while unwrapping the little tree...but I can asure you that you would be faster with modeling it than let it grow:D !
Thanks a lot for your nice comment!
Hi Martin,great to see you here for a visit:wavey: and thanks for your kind words! And because I'm lazy the wood is actually the same for the construction and the table:p , it only appears different with the backlight and DOF...
05-23-2007, 09:02 AM
Wow Sabie... this really turned out beautiful!
As the others says - the expression on his face is priceless... just the right to show his constant interest and cusiosity to shape this little tree. Great work as expected.
Good to see your gardening practise can give good inspiration like this :)
05-23-2007, 01:39 PM
Hey Gunie, great to see you back around here:wavey: !
Thanks for your nice comment...and I'm not sure if the plants in my garden would say something positive about my patience:D ...
This is a great peace of work you did! The image reflects it's title just perfect.
Actually, I was looking around on challenge page and found your post on somebody else's thread. And got interested in the title :).
I am really impressed, just wonderful.

I clicked on this in your signature, not knowing what to expect, and found a really great piece. I think the theme of this piece is really nice. I love the old man trimming the tree, really wonderful work!
