A lil background painting for my personal animation project I've got going. Though I've been too busy animating for work to do anything but this background painting.

I was going for a slightly sad and lonely feel. Lemme know what your thoughts.

Also, how is the brightness on other people's monitor? The outlet on the wall I want to be only slightly visible...

The character who'll be sitting in front of this TV I posted early... http://www.sijun.com/dhabih/ubb/Forum2/HTML/007742.html



Cheers

Looks great, you have really captured the feel of lonliness. It makes me think of a fat, bald, singlet-wearing slob who has no job. He recently beat his wife to death now has no one but his good old TV Set. But the walls are too clean if that were the case.

I can't see the outlet in the wall unless I highlight the image, but it's probably just my monitor.

The lighting is excellent, that slight touch of shadow on the wall from the arial really makes it. But I think the light touching the ground in front of the screen should have a slightly more gradual line, as well as starting a little closer to us.

samson & friends: Woa! Not quite the image of a wife-beating, fat, bald, sweaty slob I was imagining! Yikes! In truth this scene of my short film takes place in an old folks home. So I figured the walls would be fairly well kept up, just bare.

Little Nerd Note, the wallpaper is actually an homage to the wallpaper distributed with the renderman renderer, BMRT.

Hermmm, good point on the lighting on the ground. I was treating this image as pretty much final. But then you have a good point. So... if I change this image now, does it become a work in progress and no longer allowed in this forum? Dunno...

Cheers
