This is my concept sketch. I will attempt to capture the idea that man is slave to money - yet we still reach for it, kill ourselves to get more of it.

Started modelling. This is the head of the master character who the embodiment of money.

Interesting idea. Will be interesting to see how you compose this. A lot of good lighting would really help bring this about.

Thanks for the encouragement guys! I was thinking that the master for my concept would have a money texture to it. After all he is the embodiment of money. I'll be posting an update shortly.

Here is the update I promised. I will be working on his body next.

Here is the lastest update of the head model for the "Money" man. I am mostly finished with the head modeling for this character. Next I will be working on his body.

Great start dude.. nice clean model. good luck with the challenge

OK guys I need your help. My original idea was to show the slave being lead down a corridor with people hanging from chains under the imprisonment of their possessions. The main slave being lead down the corridor being a slave to money.
My wife thinks a new idea with the main character (slave), being imprisoned in a prison cell of money, credit cards and debt - while looking in the mirror at a reflection of a life he thought he was getting. This new idea would show mostly the guy looking in the mirror and some of his actual prison surroundings complete with other prison cells, inmates, and a guard just outside his cell. The floor of his prison made out of credit cards, the walls made out of money, prison bars made out of gold, etc.

Please tell me if my original idea or this new one sounds best. Both are predicated on the idea that man is slave to money (and possessions).

cool idea man .... what can we say we are all slaves actually ...just hope we can be masters too .

Here is the toilet that I modeled for the prison. I still need to do a little work on the base for it. I will be working on the sink next.

Its been a while since my last update so here it is. Here is the head model about finished, need to do some work with the ears, add some eye lashes and hair. I will be working on the body next.

Here is a test of a pseudo-subsurface shader, Applied as a texture to the head. Also I have added my progress on the modeling of the body.

Here is my submission for the lighting phase of the project. I used radiosity rendering to produce this pass.

05 May 2005, 06:37 AM (

Well I'm just about finished. Here is what the final image will look like. The Idea is that he is in a prison of debt, no hands represent that he can't help himself. Nakedness represents that he has nothing left, except his debt.

Here is my what my final picture will look like after post effects. I did some smoothing on the picture.

05 May 2005, 08:00 AM (

Here is my final image - A man trapped by debt who can't do any thing about his situation.
