very cool final image…congratulations:scream:


I made this work thinking about the incapacity that sometimes people have to recognize the wonder around us; It’s like that some people are unamenable to the great things of our world.
And sometimes great things are tiny and very common in life. Maybe we lost every enthusiasm, or someone is trying to make us loosing it. And most of us start being sceptical as the policemen in my illustration. The idea came to me quickly; two policemen of a fake county of the U.S.A. are checking a “driver” and the alchool-rate in his body…
All the actors are on a road of the non-existent “County of Meduville”, but in a first time I was thinking to use an italian policeman that I made few months ago and that was ready to act in my scene.
But I read carefully the rules of the challenge and I realized that I can’t use that model because one of the aim of the “Spectacular Challenge” is to push everyone of us to made something totally new. It was really great! Difficult, tiryng but great!
I had the opportunity to test my ability to build a 3D illustration with all new characters and props in less than two months; Really a great challenge! So I started sketching and modeling all the “actors” and props almost at the same time, because the hurry of the deadline; So I did for the rigging, IK and textures, all at the same time and in the last weeks I started to make some render test. Unluchily I have not enough ram, so I made the final rendering in a not so high resolution (just 1800x2732). I made separate rendering of the different elements, output in .tga files and composed in PS. I made some manipulation on the layers and I added some effects with my pen tablet (the smoke under the spaceship and its volumetric lights).
Thanks to the advices of all my fellows of the “Spectacular Challenge” I fixed some of the bugs inside the very first version of my illustration and I finished it in time. I think there is a lot of work to do on this piece, but no more time to do it. Anyway I’m quite satisfied of the final result. I’m going to use the characters I made for this challenge in other works and maye in an animation. It was very important to me looking at the works of the other fellows; It was (and it is) so inspiring to me and every day that I look at theyr pieces of art I always learn a lot of new things very important for my work.
