Lighting: The Rose of the Hidden One

Welcome back D.Sebastião!
  11 November 2004

I really like your work, your images are very good and the lights look great. I will give you an advice if it does not botter you: I like your inspiration, you know all this great idea about the poems, but this is a contest about an space opera. Do you really think that this image represents the objectives of this challenge?... If you cold find a way to interconect your poetry with the concept of the contest you will get an extraodinary image.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.

Yeah! Thanks SnakeFarlow, you know, that is the very BIG question that is swirling in my mind since I got this idea of the poem... where is the space scene?


The problem is: Supposedly, my scene is taking place at a very special date, 21 of December 2012, which is the date of the return of D. Sebastião, so it says the prophecy.
Therefore, I can not have nothing too advanced in my scene, because, I think that we are not going to evolve very much in the 8 years that is left!

On the other hand, this might be also the solution, his return could be a kind of... vision of the future of mankind... or, the Fifth Empire, as is called on the poem.
And in this vision... well... I suppose that there could be a spaceship. Maybe one like in my first two posts in this thread... Hummmm!!!

Your post surely helped Snake Farlow!

Modeling: The Rose of the Hidden One

A few steps back... to go forward!
This is the idea... forget the "twister". Here is the "Rose" which is "Chryst" which is the "Fifth Empire" rising from the foggy morning, with a spaceship look... I think!

Hmm the lates update is an interesting one... I do like it, but I personally think that the original 'twister' idea is much better, due to it's amazing artistic feel.

I dunno - up to you though, just my $0.02

Hello stevetwist... I really appreciate your comments, but don't you agree with SnakeFarlow?

"... this is a contest about an space opera. Do you really think that this image represents the objectives of this challenge?"

The Hidden One

What fertile symbol
Comes with the restless dawn?
On the Dead Cross of the World,
Life, which is the Rose.

What divine symbol
Brings the day already seen?
On the Cross, which is Destiny,
The Rose which is Christ.

What final symbol
Shows the sun already awakened?
On the dead and fatal Cross
The Rose of the Hidden One.

Hi there Cláudio!

No, you're not the only one... I really like the color, scale and depth of your images! Specially the "Rose Vessel" Design, truly misteryous and fit for a King that was all but forgotten...

Só uma perguntinha... o que é que aconteceu a Almada?

Um abraço!

Your last concept looks great - but I have to agree with stevetwist. The first concept is stronger. As for being Space opera enough, I think it depends on how you see it. Isn't earth a part of space? It sure is strong enough connection for me.
Keep doing this wonderful images - they look like nothing else!
