My entry, based on script 2. If i have time i want to do the other scripts.

I used Maya 7 with Mentalray (GI/FG) and Photshop for maps, DOF effect, window glow and city background.

Nice picture. It doesn't really look like the perspective of a drunk to me, and the sun doesn't seem to be glaring or hurting his eyes, but its a nice picture.

Be careful of tangencies (how things line up with eachother in your composition) like having the window sit exactly on the top of the bottle. Right now the cork barely dents the lower window frame. It would be a stronger composition if you had the bottle come above that lower window frame, or even if you had the top of the bottle lower so the cork went over the sink - anything but perfect alignment like that.

Thanks Jeremy. You're right, i agree all your comments. That's my big problem how light artist: translate the emotions of scripts for the scene light, i stay enchanted with the nice image and forget the drama.:sad:

More one up. For now i will don't light the others scripts while this not be good.

OUCH! your sunlight did hurt my eyes! :thumbsup:

maybe you should do something more with the bottle.
I mean...IMO... script #2, it's about the "precious" bottle.

like Gollum looking at the "precious" ring (LOTR).
my precious... :bounce:
my precious... :bounce:
my precious bottle... hiks! (drunk) :p
