Posted in Uncategorized on February 24, 2011 by quasirella

Here are the images and clips for my faculty review.  Below are images of the lighting for the rooms, and also layout and sound.  Now, I only have to tweak a few things, render and do final compositing.

and a link to my current layout:

Here is a  quick renders of the red room and a clip from Pan’s Labyrinth, which has the creepy feel, I am looking for, mixed with a seductive red.

The Green Room

I have been working on the green room and I made a few test renders.  This is the final look I think I am going for, except maybe just a bit darker.  Also here is a quick render of a closeup of the Feast in the red room.


Red Room Update

I redid the fireplace in the red room with statues reminiscent of Cocteau’s Beauty and the Beast, with two figures holding up the mantle.  Since this is the room for seduction, I have been thinking of adorning the figures as Ishtar, who represents promiscuity and sex.  It references this old sculpture of Ishtar.  When we reach the fireplace, and turn to look at the painting above it, the statues will turn their heads towards us.  When we back away to exit, they may start to reach out.

Here’s the Sculpted fireplace in the red room.

New renders and work

I have been working on the lilac room and I just finished a render of a moving ceiling fresco, meant to look like fluffy, rococo clouds.  Here are some images of these, as well as a quick render of a porcelain figurine I’m putting on the fireplace of the room.

This room is inspired by the late French baroque, Rococo, which was an explosion of opulence.  I am very influenced by the look of Sofia Coppolla’s film “Marie Antoinette” 2006, with it’s candy colors, assortment of differing and sometimes conflicting patterns, and above all, it’s extremely lighthearted excess.  Here are some inspiring photos from her film.
