Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines Assignment 3 + Scores
46/50 Relates to Assignment
40/50 Overall Picture
Comments: Ahh Vid, I know when you put this up you were going through something so horrible but as a judge I have to be fair and I have to be honest. I liked the story for this picture, particularly the added touch that even after she’s killed him and drained him dry she’s still a dignified lady, albeit a playful one. I know your heart wasn’t in this one due to what was going on but thought that your set was lacking, France is a beautiful country with some gorgeous buildings but you used a skyscraper shell, cobblestones and a couple of trees – I can see that there’s nothing on the horizon either and I really wish that your model had been stood closer to her victim – her pose Is wonderful but that far away from her victim it loses some of it’s effectiveness and the shot really could’ve done with some lighting to add that element of depth via shadows – I’m glad you used the lighting to illuminate your model but because everything else is dark it almost looks like she doesn’t belong in the picture.
I know I missed the mark with this one. I did it really quick when my dad was sick. I didn't wanted drop, so I came up with this. Wasn't my orignal idea. I had actually planned on using the night club I was making at the time. Someone kinda did that idea though, so my plan had to change anyway. I had saw Interview with a Vampire that week remember? Well I got the setting in mind from that when Armand meets Lestat and gives him his card. Kinda was a foggy like street under a bridge if my memory serves me right. I used a building from WA and tried to give it that feel. Her pose was done by accident thankfully. She was being annoying just standing there. It's not my best, but you know it could of been a lot worse.
I'm in love with my new picture! I really hope it goes over well with Dark. If not you can't say I didn't try. I worked on it for half the day and I almost quit twice. The transformer thing seems to clash with the pose box. As soon I turned my model into a vamp, she wouldn't pose. My guy wouldn't pose either so it pissed me off. I don't know if anyone else has the problem. Can you pose vampires or is that mod? Hmmm....I'm going have to experiment with that. Luckily my other extras were already posed. I think the new picture drained all the energy out of me. If I do get eliminate, I will at least be going out with something I'm proud of. If had got eliminated for the picture above, I would been so upset with myself. The new one is pretty much what envisioned, so I'm pretty satisfied with it.. You're see. I may post it tonight or tomorrow.
And yes, I talked about not using the pose box, but I did with the new picture. I couldn't resist. I wouldn't been able to create my idea if I hadn't. So yes I now get why people use it and as hard it was getting them to work, it's definitely not cheating. Cheating is easy. This was just hard!
