This is redux of a redux of a redux… you get the idea. I first created an artwork with this concept in 2009 when it was inspired by the forbidden love between Queen Guinevere and Sir Lancelot of the King Arthur legends. This time I changed it to a generic queen and a common hunter for the kingdom in this forbidden love. I’ll write more about the original 2009 artwork and it’s many redux versions for an entry in my Redux Gallery. For now, let’s talk about this new version which could possibly be the final version as I really love this version. This time I used La Femme and L’Homme as my central characters; more specifically I used my own D9S Milo for the commoner man and for the queen used a mixture of my D9S Myla and D9S Angie characters. That’s also a slightly edited gown from my Dreamy Medieval Gowns set. All are available exclusively from Renderosity. This artwork took about four days from start to finish to create mainly due to the dynamic cloth gown. I kept having to readjust my pose then recalculate the cloth because it wasn’t draping correctly over their hands and arms but my perseverance paid off because I finally got it looking perfect… at least to my eyes. I’m happy with how this finally turned out. This was rendered in Superfly with my brand new hair shaders.
As mentioned, this artwork was rendered fully in Superfly with dynamic cloth and my new Cycles-based Superfly hair shaders. In postwork, I used my new ON1 Effect plugin and then a few Photoshop actions and adjustment layers to edit the colors and contrast, etc. I then added a semi-transparent texture overlay and a vignette effect. I thought about adding a depth of field effect as well but ultimately decided against it as I wanted the throneroom to be recognizable as a throneroom.
