This began as a rejected, unpublished promotional artwork for my Hailee character back in 2015. I recently (end of 2016) revisited the scene and started trying to turn it into a new, full artwork. It was a long process as, like when I tried making it a promo image, it never seemed to turn out right. Finally, in March 2017, I figured out the way I wanted the scene to go and finally created my artwork. I think this may be the longest production time ever on one of my artworks until I go back and try to finish some scenes I left unfinished in 2009.
I love the red, black, and gold color scheme which was inspired by her outfit textures and the posing/perspective is unlike anything I’ve done before. This artwork uses my character Hailee and her Harlequin Addon which are both available at Renderosity.
I began with the original scene file from 2015 and used it as a base. It included only Hailee, one background prop, a partial pose, some of the outfit, and a matte black floor. I then began tweaking, fixing, and replacing elements one by one until I came up with what I have here. I also created a custom IDL lighting setup to bring out the real in the surreal. I rendered the scene with depth of field to bring out the odd perspective of the pose and camera. Postwork was minimal as the raw rendered scene looked almost perfect on its own.
