Master and Servant 2D Entry: Benita Winckler

Benita Winckler has entered the Master and Servant 2D.

Challenge Page

Latest Update: Final Image: lovecats

final final final :-)

i just noticed that i have not inserted a final text describing the image.. i was in such a haste to get this all done..

ok.. here it is:

the picture is about a fragile, lonely girl who creates her own loving companions.. i liked to play with the word "willow-catkin" and so that is the material she uses to create her kittens..

i also liked the idea of having cats as loving servants because cats are so special in their behaviour.. they can´t be controlled and dominated like dogs.. they come to you only if they want to.. they decide who their master is.. the kitties in the picture have the whole forrest in front of them.. yet they decide to stay close to her..

ok.. here`s a first sketch..
i`m thinking of a magical fairylike girl deep in the winterwoods.. she`s lonely and so she carves some creatures out of stones to accompany her..

i don`t know.. maybe there will be something in the look of the girl that will tell us more about the relationship between them..

to catch the mood for the background i used a section of a foto with a forest.. (which i will repaint clompletely..)

that`s all for now.. thanks for looking!

i did some studies for the girl.. since i`m not that good in anatomy, it will take me awhile to get it right..

and i`m a little unhappy with the background.. too empty... boring...

Nice sketch!
But I think that the emptiness of the background shows just how lonely she feels.
Just a thought.
Keep posting!

Hi. I must agree that the emptiness does feed into her being lonely. Maybe you should make the forest dead to go more into the emotion of why your character is all alone....I love the idea of her carving up her own entertainment....Maybe as she carves them they slowly come to life...Just a thought.... Good Luck

"Maybe as she carves them they slowly come to life.."

Pretty image so far! I like the shadowing and the muted colors, it's got a real sense of mood to it. I also like the idea of carvings coming to life, as it givs her something to be the master of.

Don't forget to officially submit your images through the Challenge's 'Submit Entry' page, otherwise they won't count towards your milestones, which would, of course, not be good!

Good luck!
