Master and Servant 3D Entry: Gregory Werner

Latest Update: Final Image: Milady's new servant

The story:

Milady is to picks out a new servant. She's is accompanied by her guardians on the hunt. He is caught on a side road while returning home. The bodyguards use an old crane from a nearby mill to immobilize him for the initiating ceremony. The human struggles but is soon numbed by the mistresses witchcraft. He no longer feels pain. One of the bodyguards in the mean while heats up the branding iron with the mistress’s crest & the hawk priest starts his chant to the gods of nature. The poor soul will of course carry his ladies crest branded on him as all servants before him....The ceremony commences as the first rays of light chase away the darkness of the night.

The relationship:
The master in this relationship is the dominant character. The servant is disposable. He has no will of his own. He is quickly replaced if he rebels. Of course the two races can not understand each other or communicate so the servant is pushed around and can rely only on a simplified sign language.

My aims:
I wanted to show a surreal picture where the human character wouldn't entirely fit into the crowd...seem like an outcast, surrounded by creatures only slightly resembling human form but of animal nature. They all see him as a lower being in the food chain. The human may have valuable knowledge and ides but the master will never be able to find that out because of the communication barrier. Just like in our world people who's job is to serve usually become only tools to their masters

My experience:
This challenge was a completely new experience for me. This was my first project on such large scale. I learned a lot about how to organize my workflow & work with high polygon scenes. Composite work was also rather new to me. I used to render out full scenes not knowing the power that is in layer compositing saving valuable time and speeding up the rendering process.

The Alpha

Just a little something that came to mind... will refine it. Still deciding on what to make the little soldiers (bored of the human race a bit ) Anyhow they'll probably end up as animal characters in armour..Gotta keep in mind that they'll need need to rely heavily on textures so I can get a lot of em in there. Still need to place the main master somewhere...I'd prefer a crowd running out but I'm not sure I can waste the time on scetchin them.
