Shading (Textured and lit): Texturing the girl

Texturing the girl... Some defaults of modeling appears on the close-up (nose, stretched face), they were modified later.

Modeling: Modeling the guy

Let's go for the guy. Since this image the design has changed a little: no more aviator style.
The guy suspended to the cable correspond to the first idea, but didn't match with the rest of image and was abandonned.
(The shoes have changed too, they were horrible... :-( )

Modeling: Positioning characters

Difficult choices...
Looking for the position of the characters. The position of the guy is quite important for the "story" of the image.
On the left, he seems to abandon the girls, and happy to do so. Which is for me not very "interessant": sort of banal sex story. But the position is very dynamic and i like the impression that he climbs on the buildings.
On the right: he's more passive. What's the word for that?... He "undergoes" the situation? It's almost a rapt. We don't know if he is happy or not to go.
So I finally decided for the right position.

Shading (Textured and lit): Guy texturing

Final position and texturing for the guy...
I decided to use more "dense" colors for the clothes, in order to separate the character from the backgound...

Post Effects and Compositing: Working on the light

Working on a more contrasted picture. Much better i think...

Youglion: thanx a lot! App for application? I use Cinema4D and Photoshop.
Authentic: I finaly decided to keep the twist of the ladder like that, because I think it adds dinamics and some of "vertigo"... Thanx for ur interest!

Final Image: Real final image ;-)

This morning, it's the day. That was planed, they both knew that, he has to leave. Perhaps he's happy to do so; he will for the first time see beyond the walls... But...
What does she think? She's happy for him? Does she say "Have fun" or "Please don't go"? Does she try to catch him at the last second?
Interpretation of this last glance is open... ;-)

Blimp Buddy


Cool work. Very sophistacted modeling and composition. The architectural details are remarkable, and the story told is mysterious, quirky and practically slapstick comedy, all in one.

And you managed this in only two pages! No fair.

Fantastic to see for the first time.

Perhaps the man is flying away with some loot from the judges.
