There is a lot of symbolism in this piece: She’s holding the famous tragedy and comedy theater masks and is looking towards the tragic one, meaning she’s leaning towards depression. There’s a wind-up key connected to her heart, something exterior has to keep her going. There are marionette strings controlling her, she has no control over her own emotions or actions.
I first created an artwork like this back in July of 2011 but decided to go back and create an improved version since both my skills and tools have improved since then. This is one of my favorite artworks/concepts so I want it to be the best it can be. I mainly replaced a few of the models with better versions, enhanced all of the materials, improved the lighting, added more detail, and did a much better job of postwork. I’m extremely pleased with how this new version turned out.
After replacing and improving the models and materials (including using my newer Nicola Goth 2012) I then only had to slightly alter the camera’s focal point and angle then create a new lighting setup using IDL. The postwork I needed to do on this artwork was minimal, mostly just painting the blood on her chest around the key. Thanks to the advanced IDL lighting I used, not much else was needed to improve the scene. I did add a faint grunge overlay to give it a bit more of a textured antique look.
A cropped version of this artwork was used in the creation of a book cover for the book The Incurables by Mark Brazaitis which is available as a paperback, audio book, and there’s a Kindle edition.
