Hello! So, here is a villa perched on its cliff, with its tiny swimming pool... The sun almost lies down, somewhere on the Mediterranean edges, boring a charged sky which predict perhaps a very close storm. I tried by the means of this contrasted image to recreate an ambiguous environment, combining simplicity with the luxury, the luxuriance and softness with a light coldness, which one should feel little by little. The style of the building is voluntarily purified, to let the light and the gardens shine. But this scene is dehumanized, the places are voluntarily deserted, the water of the swimming pool is disturbed by the wind, and the colors slightly saturated to keep a synthetic aspect, as if all this were neither really "alive", nor really reality... I express by there the mixture of attrait/répulsion which I feel with a way of life which is not mine. The idea of this image came from a discussion with friends on the consumer society, the future, the luxury... And holidays in the Mediterranean! The plants are for half on basis Vue D' esprit5, the tree on the left is based on an Xfrog model and completely worked over again , HairFX was massively used for a good part of the vegetation... All the remainder is created with 3dsMax 7 and is renrered under Vray. Then passed under Photoshop for a small phase of final improvements and balances. Thank you for your attention and i apologize for dreadful english.
