Sad Elephant, Thomas Haas-Christensen (3D)

Title: Sad Elephant
Name: Thomas Haas-Christensen
Country: France
Software: Digital Fusion, Maya, mental ray, Photoshop

An elephant trapped in a dusty circus. His life is misserable, and he is very sad. His bigest dream is to see the wild jungles of India and feel the fresh wind in his ears.

3D done in maya. Rendered in Mental Ray. Colorcorrected and composited in Fusion, and post-processed in Photoshop for small paintovers of glitches.

I am stunned. I haven't seen an elephant with this much emotion before! The way you use light and color to set an overall feeling is excellent, and I think the choice to make the head bigger than the rest of the body really supports the emotional part. Great image!

PS. A little more about the choice of color: what I find interesting is the warm colors related to the circus setting, which is contrasted by the very sad look on the elephant. I find this a more engaging solution, than if you had made everything in cool blue or gray colors. Again: way to go!
