I'm assuming that this is as open ended as it sounds..?
Here's my starter WIP, the idea being thus :
The (Butler's) Chamber:
The fork was halfway to his mouth when Nigel heard the littlest bell chime gently above him. Sighing, he slipped his feet back into his faded work shoes and straightened his tie. Dinner would have to wait, the young master needed him.
WIP, simple 3D model and some painting on top. I was thinking of some photos I saw of an apartment from the 1920's which was left untouched until today, but I still don't have the 'dated' atmosphere quite right, needs more stuff or more specificity I guess...
This one is really opening it up! I like the small intimate rooms, and the rocky chambers. I found the first thing that came to mind was Angel Carter's 'The Bloody Chamber', rewriting of Bluebeard, so I'm going to try something vaguely Bluebeardy I think. The new bride coming upon the chamber where BB has stored his previous wives .. very scrappy first wip here.
Some thumbnails I did. I sketched a couple of ideas out, then did some basic sketches on photoshop and painted over them. I like to use just black and white in my thumbnails so im not thinking about values or colour, just composition and lighting.
