Master and Servant 3D Entry: gehry welty

gehry welty has entered the Master and Servant 3D.

Challenge Page

Latest Update: Final Image: the end


" Lord Farley is a Heavy Sleeper"

---------------------
About the Image:

A humorous scene where the power in a Master/Servant relationship is reversed.

To emphasize this I chose a Master whose position and stature in life was seemingly dignified. One who seemed a cranky, boorish, stern type. I tried to support this with A: his title B: a self-portrait of himself as he sees himself in the world C: his surroundings. These were his "props" to define his character. Then, exposing his vulnerability, his weekness of when he was powerless; the fact that he is a sound sleeper and prone to sleep through almost anything.

For the servants I wanted characters that could and do present themselves in a civilized way but inside their personalities lied a taste for the odd. This i attempted to support with A: the buck-tooth, donkey-eared butler who is probably the leader. A goof-ball sort of character who likes to laugh. B: The "photographer" with her camera, and the red-horned glasses. C: the "pickle-girl" , who is the youngest and probably learning and following along in the games with her big 'fro.

With these elements i tried to convey a condition of being human. We attempt to portray ourselves one way to the exterior world, but when no one else is around and we are all alone, our real selves pop out whatever that may be.

Cool. The concept kind of reminds me of Edgar Allen Poe's Telltale Heart, which has always been one of my favorite stories. I'm going to enjoy watching this one evolve.
