The French Maid And The Mummy, Steven Stahlberg (3D)

Title: The French Maid And The Mummy
Name: Steven Stahlberg
Country: Malaysia
Software: Maya, Photoshop

Fifi was hired at the mansion of the eccentric millionaire archeologist Bruce Jones, not for her cleaning skills and intelligence, but for her looks - although no one had bothered to tell her that... one day she blundered down into the very dusty basement, and wanting to earn her high pay she started dusting things...
I'm toying with the thought to do a follow-up image to this one day, to show what happens next - maybe she goes out on a date with him. :)
Used Maya Mental Ray with FG, no GI... hdri, 2 red pontlights on the left, 2 spotlights on the right... misss_fast_skin shader on her and the candle, plain Lambert on him and most other stuff... fall-off transparency on the stockings...
Any C&C welcome!

funny pict Steven. Like it a lot.
Sexy, as usual, but more narrative as well and courageous. The face of the mummy is soooo cool.
Nothing to crit on the character, hot as it is. Props around are a bit too fresh to me. Bah. pay no mind.
i am Jack's complete lack of surprise

Believe me, you don't want to be a mummy

I like every pixel of your work!
From the little candle to this georgeous girl it is done very well.

Would be cool another piece focusing on this character

One more time, a great sexy and funny pic. BRAVO

The maid is really sexy ... did you use a real model during the realisation ?

Thanks! It took about a week, I was rushing to submit it for Expose 4 (and I'm not counting the long development of the female model).
The props, yes you're right I should work some more on those.
Here are some closeups. I'd say about 1 or 2 percent of the details are hand painted in PS. I'm not happy that his teeth are so white, but I had to make his smile more visible somehow.

FANTASTIC. like always!

hehe the mummy face is so nice! I have no problem with the white teeth at all
about the girl, well, it's stahlberg standards, very very nice.

this is a really great image

And just to show Fifi in a more flattering light, a test rendering closeup (done before I started on this mummy-picture), where I'm using only hdri and the misss_skin_fast.

great humor in this piece. you remain an inspiration. thanks for your work!
everything is a conspiracy

HAHA, Steven you dirty monkey you!

Great pic, and I agree about not being able to see the smile. In fact I didn't even realize it until you mentioned that it was a smile. (Then again I do medical animation so anything skull related looks like grin to me.) Mybe if you over emphasized the size of the smile and pulled it up more at the corners. It's pretty flat along the upper lip and didn't read as a smile to me. More like a lack of lip tissue, but that goes back to the medical side of me talking. Perhaps even more expression on the face itself. Might as well push the "fantasy" side of the concept.
I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
