Just started the setting for my “Hidden Secrets” image this morning.
My concept is to include a girl who is running from something/someone because of something she did/does; her hidden secrets (the specific interpretation is up to the viewer).
The basic underlying concept is: As humans, we are always running from our past, whether it may be regrets, a certain person, an event. I’m hoping to bring out the negative side of this characteristic of our human nature. Of course this fact about us isn’t entirely bad, but I believe in accepting the past, learning from mistakes, moving on, etc. instead of letting it take over you and constantly running from it. (Too deep? :P)
Just to give you an idea of the female, I’m working on her facial expression off of Piper Perabo in a still I found from her recent series, “Covert Affairs”. I don’t watch the series myself, but the previews of the show is always on during the commercials, her expression in this image is the exact look I’m going for:
This setting obviously needs a ton of work:
-lighting overall (needs darker lighting than it is now)
-background (the one that is there currently is only rather for a placeholder for the reflection in the puddles)
-doors, possibly windows, and more detail on the buildings still need to be added
-and of course when all is done I will create an effect in the compositor to have the street lights emit light
-and I think the relative size of the stone floor to the buildings and the rest of the scene is a little off, but what do you think?
Please give any thoughts, negative or positive
