Music Box Dancer by dream9studios Music Box Dancer by dream9studios
A surreal artwork of a woman watching her tiny dancer whom is trapped in the music box.
  • Creation Date: July 21, 2018
  • Software Tools: Poser 11 Pro, Photoshop CC
Notes: The idea for this artwork originated with an artwork I created in 2003(!) which was the first artwork I created with realistic human models (I used Victoria 3 in it). I’ve been wanting to do a new version ever since Victoria 4 came out so many years ago but could never quite get the right feel. I finally was playing around with this scene last night when it turned to the slightly surreal and I realized I finally had it. I used V4 for both the woman and the tiny dancer. The character I used for the tiny dancer is my Lilla on sale at Renderosity.

Technical Notes: Most of what you see is the base render. I scaled down my Lilla character to less than 15% to use her as the music box dancer. The lighting was a standard preset that I initially only intended to use for preview purposes but it turned out looking great. The glass dome was rendered using both reflection and a low refraction value to minimize warping of the dancer. In postwork I used various actions and filters to create the final look.

Nicely done. Intriguing concept. The woman seems not to intend a rescue.
