Hello dear CG-friends ,

Unless you may have been thinking I had 'cancelled' participating this challenge, I really have been buzzy with cool ideas. I just wanted to first think of all aspects of a good image for this challenge, before I submitted ánything about it.

This is the third challenge I run around here, and the 4th big one (I also participated a Boxx-challenge on last year). Every time I see it as a really big adventure: something to make something cool for, and also make my mind do a nice job...

Owkeey, lets begin talking about thís challenge!

Imidiately after hearing the theme, I knew this challenge would have quite very variing concepts, because (in my eyes) the theme is far more abstract then themes of before. That's also why Í immidiately planned to make something 'more abstract' and arstistic then before...!

Under here I have some ideas that I made while 'brainstorming' about the theme:

  • A scarecrow ('Vogelverschrikker' in Dutch ). The scarecrow would be the master, the birds the servant. I especially planned to create a moody colorpallet
  • 'Queen of my Castle'. An idea I had before (after hearing the song 'King of my Castle' while a booooring lesson ), but that I maybe could use in this challenge. This image would be kind'a 'average' 'hot-chick & dragon' in front of a castle...
  • 'Ratcatcher of Hamelen' ('Rattenvanger van Hamelen' in Dutch). This is a fairytale that's quite well known around here. The master would be the 'man with the flute' and the rats would be the servants... I especially planned to input some 'Anton-Pieck'-style in this image [example of his work] , and choose a nice level of detail and nice colorpalet.
  • 'Oogie-Boogie-likey character'. Nightmare Before Christmas-fans will know who I'm talking about. This concept would contain állot characters that together form a really big one. So at the end all characters would be working together as servants.
  • 'Medusa'. I'm almost sure that this theme is used before, but unless it would be an idea.... Medusa as master, snakes as servants...
  • 'Pregnant Mother'. Mother as master, child as servant. Both with the same expression, so that you can see they are 'connected'. By the way: the baby would be still in the belly. I planned to 'cut-open' the mothers belly in a circle-form, so that you can 'look inside the belly'.
  • 'Mastermind' > check under here
I think this idea is the far most creative/original/expressionive of all ideas.

'You see a boys head / face, with right on his forehead an 'in-going-shape' of a heart. In this shape you see a really cute girl, thats shaped of the same skin. The girl is the master, the boy the servant... At the time the boy thinks of the girl, his mind is just in power of the girl... He can't think of anything else... Now he reaaly knows what love is...!'

I got this idea when I was special for this challenge, taking a ride on my bicycle, to the 30-minutes-away 'Bergen op Zoom'. In the most awesome bookstore I éver saw, I saw the book 'Amerika'. In this book where some reeealy cool portrets of all kinds of people... That where the inspiration came from.

Íf I choose this idea, I'll mainly use it to 'focus' on Sub Surface Scattering, Photorealistic things, and model faces with personality... Because thís time I don't have to model complete cities, I'll try to take as much time as I can to make it just PERFECT...!

I think I'll post a concept-sketch tomorrow... I hope I'll get some reactions soon as possible, and hope you'll like my idea(s)...

Have a nice evening or day or whatever ,

@ nix0r :: Thank you for thinking with me! I'll think about furthur possibilities with the various concepts, but I think I'll stick to the 'Mastermind-idea', because I've got the feeling that in thát concept/idea all things perfectly would match together... But in every case thanks for your time for checking here

@ Virtuoso :: Thanks for the reply, Michael! Thanks for your interest in my stuff, and convincing that the mastermind-idea would be nice enough! I've checked your thread some times, but never have had time to reply and really read all important stuff... But in every case I'm (again ) really interested in your work!

I'm a bit buzzy with some exams I have upcoming week, so that concept-sketch won't be online reeeeally soon, but within a week it'll be online

Are there more people with an opinion?

Interesting idea!

I find all of your ideas cool, and I think you have chosen the most challenging and interesting one. I'll be interesting to see how you place a girl inside the head of a guy, and avoid making it gruesome or monster like, which from I understand is not your intention.

I am interesting in your texturing also, because I am interested in realistic skin myself.

Good luck!

Hi Gijs,

Time to go go go! Just push it hard my friend! That head with the heart shap is a very original idea and a kind of "materialistic symbolism", well thought! Now hurry up! I'm waiting for your final!
