Master and Servant 3D Entry: Ludovic Vignaud

Ludovic Vignaud has entered the Master and Servant 3D.

Challenge Page

Latest Update: Final Image: Final Image : Mistress

This is the final image!
Adding some little details and correction.
For this image, I used 3dsmax, with a basic lighting with 6 spots.
ZBrush was used for the two feet under the bath and the carnivores plants, and for textures of these meshes.
The render is 3ds max default scanline, render by layer:
Vegetation near the camera
The bath with the woman
Background vegetation
And all the carnivores plants one by one

Compositing and post effects were done in Photoshop.
In final, i have 105 layers in photoshop ( flammes, dirt, highlights, slime, cracks... all details like this )

For this picture, the only source of inspiration was Alien for the carnivores plants.
I'm really happy to have finish the challenge in spite of problems with my computer, so really big thanks to my friend who helped me by rendering my project with his computer ( my computer is not enough powerfull for that greedy renders ! )
I'm sorry I don't have enough time to work a lot on compositing, my exam in my college starts soon. So , I do as i can ;)

The woman is the Mistress of the plants, she lives with them permanently in a greenhouse.The plants admires her and respects her like a god.
But these plants have tendency to too admiring her, as well for her's carism as for her's beauty, which makes them benefit from those moments of rest to approach some slowly… Do they want to eat her?
Or right to approach some for one emotional moment? In this image I wanted to represent the woman in a weak graphic position, surrounded by plants carnivores seeming aggressive.
In the content, I wanted that one feels in spite of that the hierarchical superiority of the woman, the fact that she dominates.
I wanted that at first sight, the plants seem to dominate, but that while understanding the image, one realizes that the woman dominates her plantes.
Hope you like it ;)

La femme est la Maitresse des plantes, elle vie avec elles en permanence dans une serre. Les plantes l'admire et la respecte comme un dieu.
Mais ces plantes ont tendance à trop l'admirer, tant pour son carisme que pour sa beauté, ce qui leur fait profiter de ses instants de repos pour s'en approcher lentement... veulent elles la manger ?
Ou juste s'en approcher pour un moment affectif ? Dans cette image j'ai voulu représenter la femme dans une position graphique faible, entourée de plantes carnivores semblant agressives.
Dans le fond, je voulais que l'on ressente malgré ça la supériorité hiérarchique de la femme, le fait qu'elle domine.
Je voulais qu'à première vue, les plantes semblent dominer, mais que en comprenant l'image, on se rende compte que la femme domine ses plantes.
J'éspère que vous apprécierez ;)
